Lonely Planet review

Nestled in the ochre walls of the sqala, an 18th-century fortified bastion north of the centre, this lovely restaurant is a tranquil escape from the city. The cafe has a rustic interior and a delightful garden surrounded by flower-draped trellises. No alcohol is served, but there’s a good selection of teas and fresh juices. It’s a lovely spot for a Moroccan breakfast or a selection of salads for lunch. Tajines are a speciality and the menu features plenty of fish, as well as a selection of meat brochettes.
