Awesome food, service, ambiance - a nice break from the Medina. The starter dips of honey-drizzled goat cheese & olive tepenades are really special and the mains delicious. Everything is scratch made in-house - even the spicy tea blend (must try!). Marhaba!

We all enjoyed eating here. The restaurant has a quirky vibe and the food that we had was delicious. Even though we all are different meals, we all agreed the restaurant was one of our favourites and we would go back in a heartbeat.

Lovely little restaurant - food was excellent. Very reasonable. No alcohol served but didn't take away from the experience.

Loved the vibe and ambience. Food is delicious and inexpensive. A must go for sure! We tried the sautéed noodles and crackling chicken... loved every bite! Also the juices are fresh and delicious.

We had a delicious lunch at this restaurant in the middle of the Medina. Seafood menu, funky lighting, great music, friendly staff. Loved the crab-avocado tatare and John Dory as fish of the day. Super tasty chocolate mousse!
