Description: In a town not renowned for its dining scene, this French-run restaurant is a glorious exception. Owner Brahim Amdiaz is also an active subscriber to the slow food quality ethic. Checkered floor tiles and red tablecloths give it the air of a French bistro, but the cuisine is high Moroccan, with French panache. House specialties include pastilla (salty-sweet pigeon in puff pastry) and camel meat with pureed potato, served in a gingery Mali sauce. There are several four-course set menus available.

The food was excellent in the multi-course meal. The small touches including the melon sorbet and fig liquor contributed. Te staff were pleasant and helpful. And the patron, jean-Pierre, took us back to the hotel after the meal ended.

This is a wonderful place, great food and a patron who understands a lot about food and wine and has much love for his product.
But more then just a good restaurant in ouarzazate, this would be a place to go wherever it would be located, because its one of those special places. It shines by its owne, like a star!
Wonderful chef and stuff and best moroccan wine!

This is a good "French" restaurant but the cuisine is far from a Michelin star level. You have to take the full menu (2 starters, amin course and desserts). Desserts are rather basic. Nice welcome and friendly service.

Really good food experience althought the owner put too much in evidence his experience in the famousSlow Food Festival in Turin Italy.Not need this tawdry exposition. His talent is excelent without low level of marketing.
A mandatory stop in OURZAZATE Not the only Tagine but a mix of prevalent locally dishes with international style insert.

Although the lady of the house does a great job of welcoming and serving you, we think it is odd that the so called French "Chef" spends his time behind the bar during the whole dinner. Wondering who's cooking, we saw and tasted that at least half of our dinner was re-heated and/or microwaved. This address was supposed to be of great value for money (even if high end compared to local cuisine) but is really dissapointing. The "Chef" doesn't deserve his official cook's jacket (with the French flag) if he continues to offer an over complicated menu which he can't handle and has to re-heat on the spot. The slow food mention at the entry is really over the top and completely misguiding.
