Fodor's Review

This French-run place hidden at the souk's northern tip is regularly booked with upscale tourists and expats, and the candlelit roof terrace is a popular spot for balmy summer nights or predinner cocktails. The menu features traditional Moroccan fare as well as lighter international dishes such as sea-bass fillet served in a clam sauce, or vegetarian risotto. It also has a license to serve alcohol. Originally an inn for passing merchants and their mounts, this three-story restored foundouk has kept a lot of original architectural features: solid old wooden beams, carved cedar ceilings, and wrought-iron balustrades around a central patio that opens to the sky, and it's decorated with statues and masks gathered from across West Africa. The ground-floor bar is also open to nondiners. As you approach on foot or from your taxi drop-off, avoid the many insistent locals who will offer to "guide"' you to the restaurant; look for the uniformed restaurant staff bearing lanterns who will walk you to the door and tip them 20 DH.
