Worth a visit to relax on the very stylish roof top terrace and try a Moroccan beer (Casablanca) or chose from a reasonable wine list. Don't bother with the food though, very dull. Comfortable with friendly service.

Plus points: lovely setting, nice courtyard, quick service. Ok food. I had vegetable couscous which for my very first meal in Morocco was a bit disappointing. I had expected more flavours. Prices were European, so pricey at Moroccan standards.

Let's not mince words, this place is pretty expensive for Marrakech. But, the food is excellent, the drinks are strong and quite big, service is excellent and the restaurant itself is gorgeous. If you're sick of tagines and brochettes and would like a delicious cocktail, this place is fantastic.

We each ordered Moroccan food hoping to get a real tatse of Morocco. I had lamb tagine, the meat was tough and the food was bland with no taste of seasoning at all.

A stylish place towards the north of the souks with a really nice bar... yes, with alcohol! We booked to return for dinner the next night and although they were full we secured a table in the bar area. We were not rushed and enjoyed a pleasant wind down over a drink. Food: the salmon starter was excellent but I... More

Guided here after a morning in the Medina. We enjoyed the rooftop and especially the great food. We only tried a few things, mainly seafood, but everything was quite tasty. Good cold drinks and the service was what we wanted. All I can say is we'd go back

Visited Cafe Arabe initially for coffee on the roof terrace. Having discovered they serve wine (unlike most of the restaurants in the Medina) we booked a table for dinner in the courtyard. The decor, service, food and wine were all superb. We returned the following evening for a glass of rose on the roof terrace and were greeted like regulars!... More

Excellent on all aspects. Reading the reviews, I recommend to stay downstair - as we did. We had a fantastic time, very professional service (the main waiter is Amazing !!) and very good food. Probably one of the best in Marrakech for the price.

We were delighted to find a bar with cold beer after a morning wandering the souks. We tried this place for drinks at lunch time and enjoyed the surroundings so much we decided to book for dinner in the courtyard which we found to be more romantic as upstairs in the bar area, we found to be more family dining....
