Chef Mourad was THE ABSOLUTE BEST!!! He was one of the best parts of our trip. His professionalism, attentiveness, warmth and overall personality was such a well received added bonus to all the delicious meals he prepared for us. He prepared 2 dinners and 5 breakfasts for us. He always asked our preferences for each meal and accommodated all of our palates. Chef Mourad went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed and wanted. We can't wait to come back and break bread with him again. Please choose him you will not be disappointed!
