We were not impressed. Staff ain't attentive nor friendly. Food is average and roof top terrace looks over a construction site. We know that it is a famous place but it is rather mediocre. So we will not visit again.

It was quite an expedition to find but I'm glad we didn't give up. We chose to eat on the terrace and had cool breeze all evening. We were unable to get a table overlooking the views, so had one of the low seating/tables in the middle. Our waiter wasn't too welcoming but was efficient and quick - it was... More

We had heard of cafe arabe from friends and we're keen to see why they enjoyed it so much. We headed there as a group of four just around sunset so we could enjoy the views over the city. As we arrived, during Ramadan, our friends who had gotten there first had already ordered some tapas like starters for us... More

Been eating hear most days for dinner and lunch. It's one of the only places to serve alcohol and worth it after a hot day in the market. Food is costly but worth it. Get there before sunset to enjoy, would recommend the fillet steak and salmon!

Excellent last lunch of our stay, we had called in here for a beer on previous visits to marrakech but this was the first time we have eaten, with the first order of drinks a few nibbles are served which is a nice touch, I had the lamb, fig and almond tagine which was extremely tasty and well presented and...

Cafe Arabe was very close to our riad (Riad Dar Donab) and therefore was an ideal location for dinner one night. We had ordered starters and main courses: Tuna Nicoise and Warm aubergine roulade and mixed lamb and chicken kebabs with fries and chicken escalopes. Pros: Excellent rooftop terrace setting overlooking the Marrakesh skyline and kept cool with intermittent cool... More

We ate here on our last night in the medina. Both had pasta dishes, a carbonara and a chilli dish, and desserts which were lovely, tasty and fair priced. Our 10 year old loved the profiteroles ! We had 2 lovely bottles of wine also. Staff were very attentive and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

We were recommended this place and glad we had someone else to navigate the souks as it wasn't easy to locate. Once up on the terrace, the views are fantastic and it's the best place to watch the sunset. We were there for the world cup final which was lots of fun. All the staff disappeared at the same time...
