We are very proud of our newly installed Moroccan tent on the Roof Terrace at Riad Papillon.  Hand made by local craftsmen it is a beautiful and romantic space especially in the evening when it can be lit by candles.

The tent will feature during the winter months and is an excellent place to eat, whether a wonderful breakfast or a delicious evening meal. Why not book a dinner in advance for the evening of your arrival?
