Fantastic food at great value.

We've visited this place today and were really pleasantly surprised by the quality of food. Skip all the international dishes - pastas etc. and order local, Maroccan dishes - you will love them. Both veggies and meat eaters will leave full and satisfied. Staff is very attentive and polite. Prices... read more

Both veggies and meat eaters will leave full and satisfied. Staff is very attentive and polite. Prices are very good. Definetely recommended!

Reliable food, mostly Western style food. Good service. Not as cheap as the cafes and the Medina. Three levels, one of which looks like there could be live music while relaxing on the floor.

This is a lovely restaurant, set on three levels, about five minutes' walk away from The Square in Marrakech. It is one of the few that is licensed to sell alcohol and also (unusually) offers a mix of Moroccan and Italian menus. We visited on two evenings and tried Italian one night and Moroccan the second. The pasta dish was... More

Arrived here early evening, for an early dinner. Started with cocktail aperitifs. I was with four friends, we all ordered different cocktails. Tasted them all, they were absolutely wonderful, so we had some more! We all had different dishes for dinner, each were consumed with delight. I wouldn't recommend fish tagine, on reflection that was an error on my part... More

A cool place to go with a good vibe This place had a roof terrace and a good selection of cocktails... We only went for drinks but food looked good too If we had been in the city for longer would have returned to eat

Lovely cosmopolitan Italian/Moroccon food. Only a 10 minute walk from our Riad and a lovely walk too down some really pretty streets. Food was great. My husband had a shrimp spaghetti with zucchini and I had ravioli with mozzarella and a tomato sauce with fresh basil. Place serves alcohol so place frequented by a lot or Europeans! Definitely will be... More

a bit tricky to find but everyone knows it so easy to ask. we were initially batted away from a nice sofa table as we were only 2 (in a pretty much deserted bar! would have understood if there weren't 10 others!) and shown to a very small less comfortable one where we couldn't be as cosy. nice local wine...

Me and my girlfriend visited Café Arabe on a Tuesday night. The situation of the place, and the welcoming by the employees was very nice. There are several different wines on the menu, though these are not from high standards. I had the lam, and my girlfriend had the lasagna. My lam was drained with lemon sauce and not so... More

If you want to get away from the busy medina for a peaceful drink (they also serve alcohol!) & a bit more of a cosmopolitan vibe, this is the place for you. Food was good & service was quick. The restaurant rooftop is beautifully decorated. The people on reception weren't particularly helpful but the staff upstairs were good.

We did a lot of exploring Marrakech but this place just hit the spot and become regular visitors, the food was superb as was the service and staff. I am just sorry we didn't get to say goodbye to them. Best place ever!!
