“gourmet eating + views of sunset over the atlas mountains”
Reviewed 9 May 2012

This was our favourite restaurant which we chose, as it had an interesting menu, and an upper terrace, and an inside first floor with fully opening windows, for if you were a little cold. The first evening we asked if we could order the Mechoui ( shoulder of lamb for 2 persons)- 220DH for the next night – as you had to order it 6 hrs ahead, however our server Hassan was great – nothing was too much trouble, he said that we could have it that evening. We ordered Harira soup – 12DH to being with, a lentilly tomato soup with a side of warm boiled egg and 3 dates each. This was a really tasty, hearty soup especially after we shelled and dropped in the egg and ate the dates with it. We had the Roast Lamb served with roast veg of potatoes, carrots and courgettes and bread also for eating with it a round flat loaf each. Then Hassan sliced up enough hot Lamb, and veg for our plates, and later did it again until it was all gone. I couldn’t manage the bread, but my husband has hollow legs. To go with it I had fresh orange juice 20DH, a bottle of water, and hubby had juice of almonds – 25DH, a kind of milkshake made with almonds and so thick, it needed to be spooned out towards the end .To end it we had Hot Chocolate, and Cappuccino 20DH each, later so that we could stay as long as possible and see all the activities in the main square – we could hardly eat it all – we were stuffed. The second evening we ate in the lower of the Terraces, with the open windows, the walls below the windows were red-hot from the 30 deg temperature of the day. We had Couscous Bahia 80DH– with Chicken, Merguez (spicy Sausages), Veal and minced meat, as well as marrow, carrot,onions,potatoes, and hubby had Couscous Tfaya, 50DH with veal, onions,sweet Raisins, and cinnamon. I love eating and cooking and there are at least 6 other dishes which I had never tried, and I wished that I had time to. It was lovely and warm on the lower terrace, and we didn’t get bothered to order more things, or hurry us along, and another chocolate 15DH, then coffee 15DH , left at 10.30pm after we got there at 7.30pm – wonderful evening – from the top terrace you can see the Atlas mountain, lit by the sunset. Would always go there again if I was in Marrakesh again.
