After deciding very late in our holiday to gather some more spices, we stumbled unexpectedly across this bar - we were drawn in by the fact they had a door man and they served cold beer. Wow - a hidden gem, we didn't eat here but the food that came out looked great, my wife and I shared a few... read more

Didn't eat or drink in here, but we spotted it in and went in just to look inside. Worth going to look around, go upstairs and explore. It wasn't busy?

This is a great restaurant where you can have a drink and a delicious dinner. There are a few different levels with different atmospheres. Great choice.

Great for families, business, couples or groups. Only been on a week day and been twice this week. Much better than others in and around the square. Great service Food 10/10 can't go wrong with the tagines (my favourite was lamb/apricots and walnuts) Serves alcohol Cost us 70£ for 4 people plus drinks Accommodating staff.. Makes ALL the difference. Would... More

Staff polite and friendly, food and wine good. Views outstanding. A good place to have a sundowner and or meal,which can be as cheap or as expensive as one makes it. As we were staying in that part of town it fast became our "local."

We visited twice- once for drinks and once for food. The menu is diverse with a mix of Moroccan and European (mainly pasta) dishes. The food we ordered was excellent. Tajines were priced between 120-150dhr, and were very tasty, as was the pasta. A particular highlight was the cool lowered courtyard- a relief on our August visit. Decor is considered... More

Probably wasn't the absolute best meal we ate whilst in Marrakesh but the ambience and atmosphere on the rooftop was great. Food was good and accompanied by a delicious Moroccan wine 'Gerrouane Gris' - lovely evening with friends.

The staff were very polite and friendly and accommodated us very well. The food was delicious, as was the 'sex on the beach' (I'd definitely recommend). And the atmosphere was so fantastic, it was a chilled out vibe with a modern take on a moroccan style. Perfect.

Very nice location with great bar staff and drinks. Food was a bit bland, but had a wide choice on offer.
