Great place to relax and eat good food at the end of the day

We wanted to find a good place to relax after a long day walking around Marrakesh and tried Cafe Arabe. Great colorful atmosphere combined with good food and good service. The roof top bar and dining area is great to get a cool breeze and a view of the night sky. The sounds of the street wafting up... read more

In Rue El Mouassine 184 - in the medina in Marrakech - is Cafe Arabe. This is a western cafe with western prices. $ 3.5 for a bottle of water or a bottle of Coca Cola. A regular coffee (Americano) is at about four dollars. An entree - Tajin Maghoor - is around $ 20. All this you get for... More

Great rooftop spot! My friends and I all enjoyed the atmosphere, the views and most of all the food. We all tried the traditional Moroccan food and it was awesome. Oh yeah...and they server alcohol! If you're in Marrakech, you gotta give this place a whirl.

Great rooftop restaurant. We visited Cafe Arabe for lunch. Food was good. We had the Penne Arribiata. If you like spicy food request their home made hot sauce. The atmosphere was great....very relaxed and cozy. The rooftop has a lounge feel. I would recommend going for dinner or evening drinks vs lunch.

GReat atmosphere and very nice food. The portions are not huge and so we filled up on bread! Very nice venue. Worth going just for a drink.

We visited this establishment on a number od occasions. The staff are friendly and the service is excellent. The roof terrace is a fantastic place to eat and drink. The Café has a misting system that keeps you cool when temperatures are high - at the time of our visit day time temperatures were in the high forties degrees Celsius.... More

Romantic and delicious. The food was exquisite and the staff was wonderful. It is tucked away off the beaten path. But upon entering you realize it is an Oasis. It was quite lovely.

I love the atmosphere on this rooftop terrace, it's very different to the rest of Marrakech, so decided to return on my second visit. Had another enjoyable meal with good service and drinks. However, it is worth mentioning that this restaurant is very expensive for Marrakech.
