Inviting armchairs and banquettes offer comfort and ease as fresh, vibrant salads and slowly cooked tagines are brought to the table, celebrating the finest seasonal ingredients.With breathtaking views of the Atlas Mountains and planted with orange, fig and olive trees, jasmine, bougainvillea, honeysuckle and geraniums the roof terrace is an idyllic place to dine in the open air. “There’s probably no prettier place to tuck into a tagine.” – National Geographic
