In this long-standing restaurant of more than 20 years, you can eat among cascading plants in the airy courtyard of an 18th-century caravanserai (roadside inn). There's a daily lunch menu as well as a dish of the day and you can order à la carte anytime. The menu includes pastilla (sweet pigeon pie), briouates (phyllo pastry parcels), ray with capers, grills, and tagines. Half portions are available and there's a wine list of local and Meknès
wines. On Thursday there's jazz; local Gnaoua musicians play on Saturday nights.
