Great place for a relaxing lunch

Really nice vibe here. The layout is very cool. If you enjoy hanging out and eating on a terrace this place is great. Service was 'ok' - not great - but staff were pleasant. Again, a real bargain on the food here. A two course meal will cost around 30 pounds - that includes 2 soft drinks... read more

Terrasse des Epices was like an oasis of calm in a very hot and very hectic Marrakech when we visited (it got up to 54 degrees in the afternoon) We happened upon the restaraunt when looking for lunch & a rest and it's in a quieter end of the souks a few storeys up, so it's isolated and very chilled/relaxed....

This is a lovely restaurant to escape the crowds. Main course was very good (we tried lamb and chicken tagine), but the dessert was fantastic! Pastilla au chocolat: pastry filled with almonds, dried apricots and chocolate - a must try! Only downside was that none of the staff spoke english and menu was also on french, so we weren't completely... More

Sometimes you just need a good cup of coffee and this little place delivered that! In the old slave market- now the spice market- it is a great people watching spot! The cooling water jets a big bonus. Those around us were eating and the Moroccan soup looked delicious! Will try and get back- but pop in for a coffee... More

This was a piece of hippy calm amongst the madness of Marrakech with beautiful views over Rhaba Kadim and nice food and drink

We went for a quiet drink, they don't serve alcohol so had coffee and soft drinks and a desert which was the best desert of our stay. The atmosphere was lovely and it was one of our favourite places to sit and relax.

The atmosphere is very nice and the place is very nice decorated. The view of the medina is amazing. Simple but good food for lunch. We had pasta wich tasted good. Nice service and a good hang out. They do not serve alcohol here.

Went here during Ramadan- our hotel had phoned ahead to check if arriving at sunset (when they break their fast) would affect dinner and if we should book later. They assured our hotel it would not. So we arrived at 8.30 and were served some drinks. Then all of the staff disappeared for 45 minutes (no joke) and were sat... More

This is a great little restaurant if you want to just sit and observe the scene below you in the busy Place Epices. There are three levels so if you can't get a table by the edge, try the next floor up. There is a good selection of local dishes to try and I would recommend the lamb tagine. It... More
