Great terrace restaurant in the center of Marrakech. I had the chicken pastilla which was delicious. Very reasonable prices and friendly people!

“Delicious, great value”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

A cut above the usual - delicious food, friendly staff. Same price as eating in the open market square but in a different league altogether. Roof terrace accessed by narrow sloping stairs just round the back of the square. So good we ate there twice. Can recommend the lamb with prunes - tender, sweet and a lovely subtle blend of spices.

“Very Very Tasty”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

You have to try the pigeon pastilla if you've yet to eat pastilla while in Marrakech. You do have to wait a bit longer because it is freshly prepared but the meat was so tender. Having never had a pastilla before, I didn't know what to expect, but it was a very unique eating experience which combined a flaky pastry, filled with savory pigeon and ground nuts, topped with powdered sugar and cinnamon. Definitely confused the taste buds but in the best way possible. My wife had a delicious tagine of lamb and apricot. Prices are in line with the restaurants you will find around the medina.

Had excellent food, service, and experience! Patio seating located near the Jemaa square. Prices were also great to top it all off!

Nice place to eat in the medina :) food is good and not expensive. You may have to wait for a bit, but it is freshly prepared and very tasty.
