what the critics say


Marina O'Loughlin - 3/5

Tuesday, July 19, 2011 - There are two good reasons to head for El Cantara. One: the secret roof terrace where you can eat, drink or puff on a shisha. It's at the top of a sprawling, elaborately decorated townhouse that seems to go on forever, from basement bar to roof under the stars...Reason two: a gorgeous chicken pastilla, a Moroccan pie that features layers of crisp, oily filo, spiced chicken and a lot of icing sugar. Other dishes - albondigas (meatballs), calamari, fishcakes with garlic mayo - are serviceable. Sadly, promised belly dancers fail to appear. If you can't score a table at Koya, Barrafina or Polpo, this might work as plan B, especially if the sun ever shines again.
