Hi on the reccomendation of people i went there as opposed to La Maison de CousCous. A few thoughts.
The Room is very charming.
We ordered the 3 salad platter for an app and although it was very good it was very cold and that subtracted from the flavour.. we had the eggplant, beets and something else that i cant remember.
For the main course we had the lamb with prunes tagine, the chicken with almonds and
and a fish tagine .
every thing was delicious, especially the fish.. very fresh and succulent.
the only detriment was that they didnt finish the tagines in the tagine dish,meaning heating the food in the tagine dish. so you dont get that extra caramelizaton like you do at the maison du couscous. so although it was delicious, i must give the nod to Maison du Couscous.
