    We booked Bab Mansour many weeks prior to our arrival. When we got there the restaurant was heaving, always a good sign. Unfortunately we were ignored for a good while and eventually had to ask for recognition. We said we had a booking but were not even asked in who's name but just asked "for two"? We were eventually seated on a hastily positioned small table right next to the kitchen serving exit and were continually having to avoid busy waiters passing us. The food was really good but sadly the service was dire. Would I go back? No. Irrelevant of the good food, service is also an integral part of restaurant ownership and its offerings. If a restaurant is designed to seat 50 people then the ability to provide good service should reflect that. Sorry, I'm not a moaner and will again emphasise the good food, but I feel I need to be honest about the bad service.

    Nice wee place. Food was nice although service was bitty with meals delayed/forgotten. No alcohol served due to Ramadan which was fine but probably best to pre-warm customers. Quick turn around.

    First ones to arrive when it opened for the evening (Thursday) but didn’t take long to become busy. Atmosphere was good and waiter was efficient and friendly. We ordered Mixed Grill (cubed lamb/chicken/mince meat sausage ) with salad and chips. The meat was just right re spices but some pieces were a bit burnt (too charcoal tasting) The salad could definitely have more added to it. But on the whole okay. A Fatoush salad and cheese briouat (cheese wrapped in filo pastry) which was lovely. Service charge was applied to bill but good value for what we ordered.

    I had mixed feelings about this restaurant. The food was good, but the service was very slow. I arrived and seated at 6:30 pm and ordered at 6:50 pm, but I only received the first mezze at 7:35 pm. The portion was decent and the flavors were tasty, but I did not get to try the main course, as I decided to leave at 8:10 pm with no sight of any other ordered dishes coming. The host was apologetic and did not charge me for the mezze, but I still felt like I wasted my time. I would not go back to this place again.

    Excellent Food served by friendly efficient staff, in a friendly but not condecending manner. The restaurant, although small, (less than 30 covers), was warm, and cozy without feeling claustrophobic. with lighting which let you see what the dishes looked like, and what you were eating, but not so bright as to make you feel sunglasses were required. Overall, a very pleasant experience.

    Great place! I went there with some friends and my mum as it was her birthday, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. When I asked to have. A little candle on the dessert they went over and beyond and put on a birthday song in Italian (our original language). Overall fantastic food, and we also loved very much the dishes suggested by our server.

    Won’t deny I was disappointed. Have had so many wonderful couscous dishes all over the world and this sadly lacked flavour and spices. I was really looking forward to the meal but sadly for the price it was very bland. This restaurant would greatly benefit if they offered more authentic cooking of their dishes.

    The food was really wonderful, oddly I'm not a big fan of a tagine but my prawn tagine was the best I've had. The other members of our party were also appreciative of the food (though one felt the chicken tagine could have had more sauce). The staff were good but weren't very helpful on accommodating my friend's wheelchair. This was sorted out in due course. Overall a really lovely meal.
