When an escape from tagine is needed

After 10 days of delightful Moroccan food, we were ready for something else and the homemade pastas here at Cafe Arabe did the trick. The caprese was good, but not great. It's hard to know if the bolognese sauce is really world class as I was in the frame of mind to simply enjoy a different... read more

Was recommended and it seemed OK from outside. Appearance maintained downstairs but it was empty. However, the roof terrace was a let-down, rather down-at-heel with rickety furniture. Not a particularly inspiring view over the roofs of Marrakech. We'd previously had a couple of excellent meals at our riad so were looking for something lighter and ordered lamb cutlets and salmon.... More

The food here is very good, there is a big range of Tagines/italian dishes to choose from. It has a really nice atmosphere, very calming and somewhere you can have an alcoholic drink without having to get in a taxi somewhere The location is also really good as its not far from the main square.

We were exhausted after all day exploring the souk and Cafe Arabe seemed like a good idea being just couple of minutes away from oRiad Adore. I was suprised that despite of its name and Arabic interior, majority of dishes were Italian. I did order chicken tagine which was tasty and so were the cocktails. The choice of music was... More

Had a very nice meal during our stay in Marrakech recently defiantly worth a visit. The menu has a selection of cuisines from local Morrocan to Italian and French so you will be spoilt for choice.

We ate here 3 times during our week long stay in Marrakech and each time we had a great experience. The staff we encountered were really friendly and helpful, the food was lovely, the wine was good and the prices were very reasonable. After reading reviews previously, we actually 'booked' a table in the air conditioned area for our second... More

I visited Marrakesh for 4 days with friends and ate here twice. Good food and wine with a selection of both Moroccan and Italian based dishes.The service was friendly and attentive. The only downside was a couple of girls smoking at the next table in the courtyard which is not great when eating. It was the only time we came... More
