I had read about this place and our road manager recommended it, really glad we came. It is a really amazing old building with a calm and authentic feel. It is a riad that dates back several hundred years so it isn't like sitting in your average restaurant. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The food is excellent. I would... More

A friend of ours introduced us to this inviting, spacious cafe and we spent an afternoon there just chilling out with delicious mint tea and coffees. It was so relaxing that we stayed on for dinner, a selection of anything from tajine to chips and salad, chatted with the lovely owner and all in all loved the place!

Though it was a little difficult to find (more prominent signs would be helpful in a place where asking for directions can mean you get taken far away from your intended destination), this place was wonderful. It was quiet, refined, and beautiful, perfect for a midday respite from the souks. I'd been told to try the orange cake which was... More

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
