The styling of this intimate little restaurant is a romantic blend of French brasserie (mirrors, smartly laid tables) and North African (tagine pots and candlesticks) flourishes, and that is reflected in the trans-Mediterranean menu—a happy blending of North African dishes and French influences. Hence confit of duck, grilled fish with charmoula (a spicy Maghreb marinade), and couscous mechoui often appear on the brief menu. Locals and overseas visitors alike have been known to visit more than once simply to experience the specialty of the house: a delicious lamb tagine with prunes, almonds, beans, and coriander. Unusually for a restaurant, the bar staff can whip up a punchy cocktail too.
