Dimly lit and intimately spaced, Mamounia is a unique dining experience for those seeking something out of the ordinary. The food is Moroccan, and the menu set up for those interested in items a la carte or as a combination dinner. Unfortunately, the chicken pastilla is served as a separate a la carte item. The lamb is exceptional.
Seating is not a highlight of this restaurant. Although there are some great cushions and some nice benches, groups are sometimes seated together in this mixed and awkward arrangement. Somehow, though, the belly dancers manage to squeeze in between those seated on the floor and those on the benches to the delight of the adventurous and the chagrin of anyone shy.
There is a separate bar area for those interested in taking in the atmosphere without taking in a meal. Cocktails are tasty, but pricey.
