“Not for classic tourists”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Alternative café-restaurant, with friendly staff, especially the lovely lady, good music ( reggae, jazz, tracy chapman etc;;;) very good cheap food, vegetarian-friendly, the good tracker-vibe, a must for the hippy, surfer, rastaman or all other people, not suffering from prejudices... Everybody's welcome and treated like a guest. All others should go to an all-in ressort with pool-animation, without tasting the new Marocco... Go on my friends, you're the future !

“They charged us double??”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

They charged an extra 25Dh for 'service'? We only ordered a mineral water (15dh) and a plate of fries (10Dh)?? Wouldn't go back.

“Don't even think about it.”
Reviewed 9 August 2013 via mobile

Just bad. We ordered pizza with prawn that was tasteless. We couldn't even finish our plate. Not worth the 50dhm it cost. Stay away!!!

“Avoid”
Reviewed 9 June 2013 via mobile

Great location and nice place to have a drink but avoid food at all costs! I managed 3 bites of lamb out of the dish they served, the rest all fat. We couldn't get out quick enough.

“Bland”
Reviewed 28 December 2012

We were encouraged to order a meal which was surprisingly more expensive than the one we originally chose because the waiter said it was nicer. So we said ok because we thought why not. When our meals arrived they were so bland that couldn't eat them. Chicken was so over cooked and dried out and stringy. The views of the square is lovely but you are also surrounded by cats. We won't be back for sure.
