What can you do when a truly unespected fog hits beautiful Meknes, but look for a truly comforting place where to have richly comforting food in a richly comforting ambiance? And so we did, took a taxi to hotel Transatlantique still hidden in fog, and although signs were sadly lacking we eventually found the hidden Bistrot by the pool, this only after the manager of the hotel' s own and sadly looking maroccan restaurant on the first floor , had deviously tried to sidetrack us there. SO BEWARE. As we sat down and ordered our wine, we were presented with a bowl of crispy croutons and a garlicky tapenade, greeted by chef Philippe, who gave us a table by the window, as the fog had by then cleared up and the view of the Medina at night was the other bonus.
As a starter we had Fois Gras Ravioli, in a delicious creamy sauce. I followed with a Maigret de Canard in a tangy/sweet berry sauce and my husband choose a perfect salmon. We had no room left for sweets, helas, but the list looked really tempting. A loss for sure. Not cheap but worth the extra cash!
