Lonely Planet review

This unexpected gem transports guests from a colonial town house in historic Charles­town to a sultan’s palace in the Moroccan desert. North African specialties include harira (a traditional tomato and lentil soup), couscous and tajine, all with a modern flair. But the highlight is the sexy interior, complete with thick Oriental carpets, plush pillows and rich, jewel-toned tapestries. For a romantic date, reserve a secluded cabana table.

Belly dancers may or may not enhance the atmosphere. For more exotic fun, Koullshi lounge is downstairs.
