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 called in here for mint tea and pastries as we had heard that this palace was very beautiful. We were not disappointed by the architecture which is amazing. Should be on the list for any film location manager! The large room is a most delightful place to sit with tea and look at the literary magazines. In the centre... More

This has been one of the most peaceful places I have ever experienced! You escape from the crowded and hectic city and find yourself surrounded by beautiful colours, friendly stuff and amazing juices! Must go in Marrakesh!!!
