This douyria, or "small house," is run by French-Moroccan couple Alexandra and Driss. Building up from the base of an old pisé (mud-built) home alongside the Kasbah Touarirt, Douyria marries tradition with contemporary flair. There are two Moroccan salon-style dining areas, with bold color schemes of lilac and lime, and the creative menu offers an interesting selection of starters and mains. If you are willing to go with something exotic, try goat cooked in argan oil and sesame, or camel tagine with figs and almonds. The small terrace has wonderful views towards the lake at Ouarzazate. Actor Sir Ben Kingsley is a fan, as the guestbook will testify. Alcohol is served.
