Serving some of the best à la carte Moroccan food in the city, Al Fassia has a long-standing reputation for high-quality traditional food without the obligation to participate in a five-course gastronomic feast. Run by women, it brings classic cooking to Guéliz with an affordable menu that includes tasty tagines, tender brochettes with saffron rice, couscous topped with caramelized onions, succulent tangia, and sweet-savory pigeon pastilla. The Guéliz restaurant can
be noisy and crowded with slow service if there are large party bookings. The owners have opened a second restaurant, Al Fassia Aguedal, a few kilometers out of town, to cope with demand.
