"After reading the previous review, my wife and I decided to experience the Assilah for ourselves.
Wow talk about stepping out of the box, Can you remember Mr Ben the kids TV series! Well for me it felt as though I had just stepped through the changing room, I don’t know how authentic this place is I have nether been to morocco or eaten Moroccan food before.
The restaurant has traditional Moroccan seating on one side with low tables and seats. The other side offers a more traditional English seating arrangement. My wife and I decided on the English side as she is suffering a sore knee. The whole place is decorated in a foreign style and along with the traditional Moroccan music being played it created a fantastic atmosphere!
The food was great and again I assume traditional. I had a sardine starter nice amount it came with salad and the wife had Falafel, I had the Poussin and my wife had the lamb tagine. We both enjoyed all that we ate and loved the Moroccan flavours. I could not eat all I was served and regretted eating bread and olives at the start of our meal.
The woman that greeted us on our arrival was very welcoming, and after presenting the restaurant to us she allowed us to choose our seating preference. She made sure we were comfortable and attended to our needs without being intrusive throughout the evening.
Its BYO drink so we took a bottle of white wine that we picked up in the off licence on the way. Great way to keep the costs down!
I and the wife had a fantastic time we left with full bellies and a promise to ourselves to go back! After the Tastecard Discount The whole night including the meal a tip our own £5 bottle of wine came to a Total of £25.
Highly recommended, we are going back this week with our son and his girlfriend!
