A great place for a small group between 1-4/5 people. Quiet, cozy, comfortable, and local people also stopped by for dinner. Food was good. I had fish soup and vegetable pastilla, a small bottle of wine and finished with Moroccan pastries (on the house) and some organ GE with cinnamon. I felt the food was well prepared and delicate. The... More

High prices, small quantities and average cooking. Absolutely no reason to come back. We were served fast-food frozen fries, a handful of over salted meat and a diluted pumpkin soup. Very disappointing. Also, at some point, our eyes became itchy and we started coughing which shortened our stay. Once outside, it was obvious the kitchen fumes filled the dining area,... More

Jean-Pierre, the proprietor, is a very friendly guy. He taught us a few Berber words for our upcoming trip to the desert, and as we left he gave us complementary fresh pastries for the long drive! A beautifully decorated establishment, covered in memorabilia of French aviation. The camel in a Mali-style sauce is superbly tender and rich, and well worth... More

We stopped in Ouarzazate for a quick lunch and lucked out with Relais Saint-Exupery. We ended up with a delicious and fairly priced meal.

I feasted on Chevreau M’Kalli, soupe glacée aux concmbres and tarte citron at Le Relais de Saint-Exupery, and investigated the memorabilia of the author of The Little Prince, including a photograph of the author with his Caudron Simoun, a 1930’s French four-seat touring monoplane, at the Ouarzazate Airport.

The owner of the restaurant was very friendly and welcoming. Two nice surprises which we are thankful for: the hand-made good-bye cookies were a friendly gesture from the kitchen after we decided not to go for a desert to end the rich menu. I lost more than 100 Euro in the restaurant when packing my back. Brahim Amdiaz, the owner,... More

Ate here on the last night of a trip to Morocco. Until that point I'd felt a bit disappointed with the food in general and was tired of the usual dishes served everywhere - skewers of mincemeat and mediocre couscous etc. This was really something else. Authentic dishes enhanced by French style cooking techniques. The Camel meat, for instance, was... More

Our hotel booked us a table here. We were the only customers which was very odd and the rest of the place was dark and cold. The three course menu de jour was 300+ dirhams for basically nicely done tajine and meat. I wouldn't bother spending the money here - better to get taxi into town and eat more cheaply!

We arrived at this restaurant with high hopes after reading positive reviews, but we left very disappointed. At first, we were given an English menu which said that we could only take full menus for 250-350 Dh, which are fairly high prices for Morrocan standards, to say the least. We asked whether we couldnt take one course rather than a... More

Description
In a town not renowned for its dining scene, this French-run restaurant is a glorious exception. Owner Brahim Amdiaz is also an active subscriber to the slow food quality ethic. Checkered floor tiles and red tablecloths give it the air of a French bistro, but the cuisine is high Moroccan, with French panache. House specialties include pastilla (salty-sweet pigeon in puff pastry) and camel meat with pureed potato, served in a gingery Mali sauce. There are several four-course set menus available.
