Had lunch here today. We opted for the chicken tagine with caramelised onions and sultanas plus the fish and vegetable tagine. Both tasted wonderful and a bargain too at only 80 Dirham each (£6.70 each).

It’s a small and typical place with a great selection on tajines (traditional Moroccan dishes). Very nice staff.

Lovely quaint little restaurant. Set menu very reasonable and food was delicious - you can't book so come either before opening or about 9 when the first sitting is leaving!

If you’re looking for traditional Moroccan food with great service, speed and excellent value, I’d highly recommend Adwak. Get there 15/20 mins before opening as there’s a queue as the food is so great. The staff were attentive and the food came out really quick....More

Most probably best authentic moroccan food in town. I am Moroccan born in Casablanca. The Seafood pastilla is excellent, the zaalouk salad is for sure the best in town. Great milk based juice. Family owned and very friendly staff. Free wifi. Do not miss this...More

this is the Q&A section on trip advisor Helen, you cant book a table here. You better go on the restaurant website or phone.
