A hidden delight

We felt lucky to have even found this place. On a side street of a side street, behind a locked door with a tiny sign we found this oasis. Such an amazing building and a great spot for a lunch.

Good place for midday break. Not so much courses but quite good. Different from other cafes or restaurant. Is a sort of open space museum charming and architecturally beautiful

This is part of a chain of Riads in Marrakech. All offering great food and service. The central courtyard is cool and peaceful and the rooftop terrasse offers commanding views across the city. Difficult to find down many twisting alleyways but look up there are many signs. The food was one of the best meals we had in Marrakech. Highly... More

This was recommended to us by a staff member in our riad, he told us to go here and knock on the door and try the cake. We did, and if we could have eaten it every day we may well have done so! The staff were SO friendly and the atmosphere was absolutely tranquil and just like being in... More

Wife found this little hidden gem in a guidebook and i was amazed by how tranquil and beautiful the renovated interior was. It certainly wouldn't look out of place in the bahia palace! It is a great place to chill and spend an hour for lunch. Upstairs is a gallery. Food itself was decent and prices reasonable.

If you go you go for the orange cake - the piece is huge so you could definitely share it but you could totally eat it on your own and it is perfect.

We had coffee and cake here in the beautiful surroundings of this gallery/library. like so many places in this city, it is hidden behind a closed door, but a knock and you are in.
