This is a French restaurant in a French hotel in Morocco. The food is beautifully presented in a typical French "gastronomique" style. Taste is subjugated to presentation, as is often the case with gastronomic places. For example, the Monkfish with saffron was a beautiful intense yellow but there was actually zero taste of saffron.

Tried to eat here April 1st in the early evening but it was closed and according to the near neighbours, had been for over 2 weeks. Try phoning first before you set off or have a second choice available.
