We came here for lunch on a couple of occasions. The ground floor can get a bit hot at midday - even though they draw a ceiling screen half way across to provide some shade there are no fans. Upstairs on the 2nd floor is better as there tends to be a nice breeze plus it has a cooler vibe.... More

We went here for lunch and ordered a vegetable tagine as well as a plate of Moroccan salads. The taste was excellent and the price was good. Bread, olive oil and olives were given complimentary before we ordered. They also offer good fruit cocktails. The outdoor seating area on the top floor has a good view of the surrounding medina...

Second floor terrace had fantastic view and although we had not booked we did not have to wait long for a table - prices higher than Night Market but superb value at effectively £25 per head for very good Moroccan food.

Situated just to the north of the souk area, we loved the airy cool space of the downstairs restaurant where we had a delicious lunch having spent the hot morning wandering the beautiful Jardin Marjorelle. The menu is a mixture of Moroccan and Italian, and we enjoyed our favourite lunch of the holiday here. My wife had pasta with prawns... More

We had the best two meals of our stay in this lovely restaurant. Also, it has a roof terrace bar with the best prices in Marrakech. The food is very good and beautifully presented. The staff are Friendly and attentive. A little more expensive than the average for Marrakech, but well worth it.

During our stay in Marrakesh, my friends and I frequented Cafe Arabe almost every evening. It is one the few places to get alcohol, thus there aren't any locals about which is kind of a shame. But, the staff is friendly, the food is good, and the terrace is extremely relaxing.

There was a choice of sitting in the courtyard, under orange trees, but we chose the rooftop terrace. Very comfortable seating in a relaxed setting, overlooking the Marrakech roof tops. I believe that on a clear day one can see the Atlas Mountains. The menu is half Italian and half Moroccan. I can recommend the beef carpaccio as a starter,... More

Really good atmosphere - top floor where virtually everyone was is semi-outside, so smoking allowed. Alcoholic drinks were also available. We had brushettas for starter which were average. I had chicken cous cous for main which was good. Desserts were a little disappointing, which we found often to be the case in the more Moroccan restaurants. We had a better... More
