Tagine is a restaurant owned by Ryan Gosling. It's located on Robertson, Beverly Hills and offers a small and intimate dining experience with fine Moroccan cuisine. There are a small amount of tables, so we advise booking in advance to avoid disappointment. We saw several people turned away throughout the night.

The service is simple and on point. But the real highlight is that every dish which comes out of the kitchen is wonderfully presented, packed with strong Moroccan flavours, textures and smells, and we savoured every mouthful. The restaurant may be small, but it left us with lasting memories of a very enjoyable evening.

We were served an aperitif to kick off the evening. We had a glass of Julien Fouet Cremant De Loire Rose, a rosé from one of the most talented producers in Saumur Champigny. Very refreshing and light on the palate.

We opted for a bottle of JK Carriere 'Vespidae' Pinot Noir,2011 to enjoy throughout the evening. It's a wine with a strong notes of Wild Cherry and Mulberry Spice, with a mouth-watering acidity, complimenting most dishes, this was a good pairing for the evening.

"Tagine is one of the finest small and intimate dining experiences in Beverly Hills."

To begin I ordered the Farmers Market Beet Salad, made with Diced Red Beets and Shallots, marinated in house vinaigrette and topped with a scoop of Lemon Sorbet and fresh Raspberries. An interesting collection of flavours, and I have to say it worked splendidly.

My partner had the Tomato and Cucumber Tartar, served with Diced Israeli Cucumbers, Tomatoes and Shallots, marinated in house vinaigrette topped with a scoop of lemon sorbet and fresh raspberries. Another flavoursome and delicious dish.

This was followed by the Suckling Lamb Tagine, marinated in seven Moroccan Spices, served with Seasonal Vegetables and Couscous. There are few dishes more Moroccan, it was absolutely divine and the seven spices made this dish a winner. My partner had the Maine Lobster, prepared with Grilled Half Lobster, Roasted Red Creamer Potatoes, Harissa Cream Sauce, and preserved Lemon. A delicious and tender lobster, matched perfectly with seasoning and sauce.

As far as intimate, small and personable dining experiences go in Beverly Hills, Tagine is one of the finest. If you're not a fan of Moroccan flavours before entering, you will be when leaving.
