Really liked this place - we sat downstairs next to a wood burning fireplace (yes, the fireplace was burning in JUNE!). It felt a little like we were in Grandma's basement - but in a good way. It felt cozy like home, but the decor is very Morroccan. (Having never been to Morrocco, I can't vouch for authenticity, but it is what I imagine Morroccon decorations to be like.)
The food was very good - interesting flavours, nothing ordinary. There were eight of us for a birthday dinner and we ordered a few small share plates (bread, beet salad, olives, prawns/scallops, cabbage, an eggplant dish) and some entrees (short ribs, lamb shank, seafood casserole, chicken, duck, vegetables and couscous) The food was plentiful and I left feeling full and satisfied, and not overstuffed.
The wine list leaves a bit to be desired - very limiting. The cocktail list is very interesting - try the one with ginger and chili peppers - you won't be disappointed!
The service was decent, but a tad bit slow. Though we were having a relaxing evening and notin a rush to go anywhere, so it was really nice to be able to just chat and relax and share food when it came. I did feel that the food could have come out a BIT quicker, but there's a fine line there between too fast and making you feel rushed, and too slow that you wonder where things are.
The only thing I noticed that was lacking was a little background music - would have been nice to have something on in the background.
I will definitely return - it is great to have a different experience in a city full of restaurants are sll so much the same ("asian fusion" or "west coast cuisine"...everyone has prawns and scallops on the menu - but do they have cinnamon on them? I think not!)
