Came to this place guided by good reviews, only to be disappointed.
My fish was far overcooked, as well as the duck breast ordered by my friend. Inability to master the basic cooking techniques is therefore the reason for poor rating.

We took our baby for dinner and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We had a delicious avocado salad and the vegetable tagine & filet minion for main. All were excellent! Our waiter was very attentive and helpful. One of our best dinners in Morocco!

This is the sister restaurant to La Cle de Voute. We ate here on our last night, and it definitely felt like a special occasion. The food is predominantly French with some Moroccan dishes as well. Their seafood pastilla was incredible. I had the seafood au gratin as a main which was rich but delicious. My girlfriend had the seafood pasta which unfortunately was very bland. The service was excellent, and Moroccan wine is available. In my experience I'd give the edge to La Cle de Voute just because on whole our food there was better, but you can't go wrong with either one.

Fantastic restaurant. The food was spot on - tasty tagine and one of the most perfectly cooked sea bream fillets I've tasted in a long time. The owner was humble and charming, and made us feel extremely welcome, whilst the waiter was attentive without being over bearing. The owner's got it right here.. Hopefully we'll have time to check out the sister restaurant nearby.

Highly recommended, that was a lovely evening!
