“Cosiest place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

This was one of two places recommended by the riad to eat for dinner and after walking around the town we could see why. Most of the eateries are clearly aimed for the locals for drinking tea or fast greasy eats which serves their purpose but on holiday with a loved one it is nice to have a sit down meal and this cosy restaurant fits the bill.

The menu is both in french and english with the option of the same a la carte menu as a set course menu if you are really hungry. Considering it was a saturday night, perhaps it was because we were late, the restaurant wasn't busy and the service was prompt. No alcohol was available. From memory, there were only a few other westerners, mostly French tourist clientelle apart from us so this is a well established restaurant.

Five stars for a place which really doesnt have much in the way of competition.

“Best restaurant in Taorundant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

The food was very good, typical but a bit different and more elaborated than the usual moroccan style. It is more western approach but keeping the moroccan receipt and ingredients.
The staff is very kind!

“Tough meat and chicken”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

This is one of the very few restaurants that cater for westerners in Taroudant and is lauded and recommended by many riad managers. However, on our evening there was a very long wait for each course - we arrived at opening time but they appear to wait for many tables to be occupied in order to serve each course to all at the same time. Our meat and chicken were very tough - tagine sauce was fine. My daughter had the 'Moroccan Pie' aka a bit of chicken buried under a mound of cous cous topped with icing sugar. OK if you like a lot of dry, sugary cous cous. Clearly the owner is trying hard but certainly on this occasion the kitchen failed her. Pricey so we didn't wait for puddings. Basically a let down so praps I should've scored it lower but with such a dearth of decent places to eat.....

“Simple and good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

Excellent cosy little restaurant run by very friendly people bang in the centre of Taroudant...good for people watching!! Only problem is that the restaurant doesn't sell alcohol...too near the school and mosque apparently. Go though!

“A modern berber restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

Food was great, fine and delicate.
Maria, the owner, was very warm and professional.
The interior of the restaurant is berber-inspired, with a lot of taste and quiet, but very nice world-music.
