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.

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!!!

We had no idea that it was going to be such an amazing experience in such a wonderful building, but we were so happy that we booked it. My husband, who doesn't cook at all at home, enjoyed taking part and had a great rapport with Attika in spite of them having no common language. I particularly wanted to learn... More

it is very difficult to find this riad but it worth a visit. The roof terrace is fantastic and the courtyard elegant and sophisticated. it is what you need to escape from the noise of the souk. the food was tasty too but usual menu. Very disappointing service, the staff is extremely slow.
