This is rapidly becoming a trending place for people in the know in Marrakech. A cool, modern bar-reataurant on the ground-floor and a superb discreet little terrace on the roof with it's own facilities. A great place for a cold draught beer or a chilled white wine on a Summer's evening.

...but just a little in need of a face-lift now. Was probably really good a few years ago but slightly tatty which is a shame. It is in the new town, nowhere near the souks and square and if you want to shop modern outlets, then a good enough place to have lunch. Probably much better in the evening when... More

After having been pointed at this restaurant by a friend who lives in Marrakesh, I will go back whenever I'm in Marrakesh: * all three of us were really happy with our meals - happy to the point of making each other taste what we had on our plates * modern, tastefully decorated interior * friendly and very attentive staff...

Kechmara in Marrakech is a wonderful place to meet friends and hang out. Centrally located in Gueliz ( new part of the city, on Rue de Liberte, is perfect for a lunch date with a friend. Food is always fresh, local produce, well prepared and beautifully presented. I did not have the best meal of my life in Kechmara, but... More

There is truly no other restaurant in this city where you can find the full combination of the three elements that make a fantastic restaurant: a delicious and affordable meal, friendly and caring staff, and a great atmosphere with music that will have you opening up Shazam. It's no wonder that Kechmara is frequented by a diverse crowd of regular... More

The restaurant is perfectly located in Gueliz, a nice mix of Moroccan, American, French, Italian food, there is no way you won't find something for you on the menu. The service is very quick, the staff very friendly. The roof terrace is a more romantic part, and on the ground floor you have a more jazz atmosphere, with good and... More

If you're tired of tagines, this is a really easy place to come for something different. Both food and drinks were great, and we hung out on the roof (but inside looked equally cool and laid-back).

The decor is certainly western influenced but it has subdued taste and style. The roof top patio is excellent - airy, green and spacious and takes advantage of the warm Marrakesh nights. We were with a group of 10 and we were well taken care of for drinks. They even had beer on tap which was delicious and cold. The... More

Kechmara does not have the authentic Morrocan ambience that most of the restaurants have but wow the food is amazing. As a starter i had a crêpe with figs and blue cheese, main course was a rib-eye without bones and the dessert was a very nice strawberrycake. The food was from a good quality and the service was alright.
