What can be better than a nice home cooked Moroccan meal, followed by a great cup of coffee and maybe a little hookah session to get into the perfect Oriental mood? We know it sounds tempting. Adding to that, how about enjoying all that easiness in the beautiful on-site garden of La Scelta? Try some of the infamous specialities from Morocco like grilled Haloumi or perhaps some juicy falafel and fall in love with the oriental, laid-back atmosphere. If you’re around in the early hours drop by at Holloway Road and have some halal breakfast – a perfect start to the day.
La Scelta embodies exactly what Moroccan food stands for: amazing food enjoyed an authentic atmosphere. Located at Holloway Road, the offer of La Scelta is broad – after some delicious dishes, just lay back and let the location transform into a hookah lounge right before your eyes - the Oriental flair is complete. Did you know, the Odeon is right across the street? That’s right, this is the perfect place to shake off the thrill of a breathtaking movie.
Although you will mostly find Moroccan dishes at La Scelta, the cooks are also influenced by the Italian cuisine. The result is called Italo-Moroccan – the oriental dishes are completed by Italian favourites like Lasagne and various Pasta dishes. The subway station Holloway Road is within walking distance and Arsenal's gunners Emirates Stadium is just around the corner. So if you’re after another sterling Gunners performance, you know where to go! At Quandoo we are proud to present such a good mix of culinary cultures – Enjoy!
I thoroughly enjoyed my meal at La Scelta. The food was really delicious, we had vegetarian arancini and vegetarian tagine with couscous and it was the best meal I have had for quite some time. The owners were really very friendly and helpful. I will definitely go back to try some othe lovely dishes.
Very nice people wanted to help, chef came out etc. However the decor is a bit tired. We were expecting fruity spicy food, but this was not the case. Food lacked flavour, although presented nicely. Disappointing experience.
