Al Mendada, (the table) the restaurant, is a long hall housing all kinds of seating arrangements: rectangular high tables, low round tables and mats on the floor. The roof untraditionally vaulted and paneled with multi-colored kilims richly contrasting with the dark wood of furniture. Strewn here and there pottery containers of various sizes hand woven baskets, camel saddles, book shelves and candle lamps. Various drawings are engraved on to the walls: you may find an undulating snake, a smiling little girl with two braids, the pyramids of Giza, horses, palm trees, dogs, fish, and birds. The spirit is joyful and laid-back.
