I finally discovered the much-talked-about La Kasbah. I must say, the place looked really beautiful, with dozens of colourful Moroccan lamps hanging from the ceiling, candlelight, nice sofas, and old pictures of the Maghreb and the Middle East as a finishing touch.The lower floor is a must-see and there is also the possibility to smoke the nargileh. Cherry on top: the restroom has to be seen! A real 1001 Nights Palace!Now, everything on the menu looks delicious, and although I am a BIG fan of couscous, I went ahead and chose the chicken tajine with candied lemon—and I didn't regret it! The mix of spices and lemon really blended well with the chicken, and I must say that, for me, the best part was the lemon that was bathing in the delicious juice.Most of my dinner mates went for the couscous Kasbah Royal (couscous with a mix of different meats), and, suffice it to say, there was not much talk while eating, so I took that as a sign that it was really tasty.The desserts (which I didn't order) looked really appetizing, but I can't comment on how they tasted (no complains from my friends, though).We ended our meal with a traditional mint tea served with orange blossom water, of course!Total: 26€ per person, which is really not bad at all! What more can we ask?
