Maghreb – Lardbutty restaurant of the week

On a street packed with diverse eating and drinking places (Upper Street, Islington), Maghreb can certainly hold its own. Interestingly lit with a series of low-hanging lights along the restaurant, and decorated in warm reds with Moroccan nic-nacs, Maghreb has a comfortable, homely feel.

Service is spot on and there’s an extensive menu of Moroccan specialities and loads of tagines. The goat cheese pastillas covered in cinnamon are excellent.

Well worth a visit.
