Grabbed some lunch on the roof terrace. Great place with water vapour sprinklers to cool the air down. Had a simple plain lunch with a few cold beers. Looks like it could have a great atmosphere in the evenings. Will have to come back.

We have just returned from a lovely meal and drinks for my boyfriends 34th birthday; cafe arabe is beautifully decorated, laid back vibe and Perfect level of service from staff - didn't feel rushed but they were there if we needed them. Would thoroughly recommend. Amazing views from roof terrace to Kataboue Mosque at night, lots of twinkly light and... More

If I was ranking this place only as a trendy rooftop bar I would mark as excellent. The decor and setting is really nice, great sunset views, modern and swanky. Comfy outdoor sofas, misters to cool you down, great friendly service and reasonably priced cocktails and alcohol. We visited twice, the first time intending to have sunset cocktails only but...

If you need a change from Morrocan food, this roof top restaurant is great, relaxed with great views and lovely pasta and wine.....highly recommend for a casual lunch or dinner, we also took our 6 year daughter and she was made very welcome....

Order the pastilla. Still having dreams about it - one of the best meals I have ever had. Also the glass of house red is very decent. Tasted one or two other dishes here and they were all excellent. The staff were really really lovely - thoroughly recommended.

Cafe Arabe has fantastic views over the skyline of Marrakech and is a must to watch the sun go down, but that's as far as it goes. The tagines were uninspiring with little flavour and overpriced. On the plus side, the wine was good and reasonably priced. But as a lover of Moroccan cuisine I was sorely disappointed in the... More

Ate there for lunch after a long hot summer morning shopping. Enjoyed cold beers (big props that they brought chilled mugs for the beer – even after we ordered a second one, they brought new chilled glasses), the Moroccan salad (lots of variety, rich flavors), grilled veggies (refreshing after a few days of soupy tagine), and a chicken tagine with...

We came here for drinks and appetizers. I didn't even feel like alcohol because it was so bloody hot, so I ordered a pineapple mint something smoothie and it was excellent and refreshing. Not the best food we had in Marrakech, but solid (I can't vouch for the main meals though). The atmosphere is excellent: the rooftop is super peaceful... More

I was on holidays for a week in Morocco, when after a couple of days of just basic (okay tasting) meals, it was time to track down a good restaurant that would serve really good food, wine and alcoholic beverages. Cafe Arabe was recommended to us and I am so glad it was. The location is tucked into the Medina... More
