To one side of the courtyard is a small fire-engine-red lounge -- one of the few stand-alone bars in the medina -- with thick cushions and mirrored flowers that wind up the high ceiling, and offering an extensive menu of wine and spirits.

Italian/Moroccan food is served at this trendy, semi western restaurant. Prices are great and the patio is epic. The food is some of the best I’ve had in the country!

Superb food, lovely atmosphere and impeccable service. The menu combines traditional Moroccan dishes with more European tastes. It was highly recommended to us by the owner of the Riad where we stayed.
