Great location, views and food

Seems to be quite central in the northern Souks so a great meeting point. Has many different floors for socialising or eating. We visited many times. The rooftop terrasse has great views and music.

Top floor view of Marrakesh at night is superb. Very good service and delicious Tagines. It is well worth booking a table on the terrace.

We came about this place by accident and were very impressed with the menu, level of service and ambience. We were so impressed we came back for dinner on our last evening. One not to miss

We visited this crowdy place for diner. We had no place at the table. Our dishes were ok but not special. Good place when you are in neighbourhood. No gem to cross the city.

Good place for taking a pause! Nice place to chill out have a drink, nibbles or starter. Music is good service was ok, food was very international. Few families with kids. Comfy seating and cool music

You can sit in the courtyard on the groundfloor or on the roof terrace. Both are very different and beautiful. We sat on the roof and enjoyed the sunset with incredible views over the mountains. Food is also delicious

A three story bar/ restaurant with the bottom floor looking the most formal, then a comfortable looking lounge are on the second floor and on the top floor a cocktail bar and restaurant overlooking the rooftops of marrakech. The cocktails are about 90 dirham each and made to a strong strength which I loved. There is plenty to chose from... More

Visited every day on a recent trip for light food and drinks on the terrace. Great atmosphere good music and simple food. Round the corner from the perfect Riad Malika.

An ideal place to watch the sun set over Marrakech. Cocktails are good and the service is good too. If you want to eat you may have to book as a lot of the tables on the terrace were reserved, particularly at sunset.

Decent bar but staff could be friendlier. The view is alright, but you can find better rooftop terraces. Mainly tourists.
