Set in the heart of Cannes, midway between la rue d'Antibes and La Croisette, this is the hippest, most popular, and most sought-after "North African" restaurant in Cannes. It contains a trio of dining rooms, each lavishly outfitted à la Marocaine, with chastened brass coffeepots, tribal carpets, geometrically carved panels, and leatherwork.
The menu acknowledges the cuisines of Morocco, Tunisia, and Algeria. It features at least a half-dozen tagines (clay pots in which chicken, lamb, fish, and vegetables are spiced and slow-cooked) and at least three different versions of couscous: a traditional version with only lamb; a royale version containing merguez sausage, chicken, lamb, and beef; and a super-deluxe seafood version, priced at 75€/$98 per person, that's loaded with lobster and shellfish.
