Great location in the souk. There are some vaporisators and the tables are great. Service is really average.

A beautiful terrace in the heart of the medina where you can have some rest, a very nice environment and very good food! Taste the tanjia and the pastilla with poulet or with chocolate!!!!

Food tasted good and it's reasonably priced but it's nothing special. The service is amongst the worst we've had in Marrakech, they weren't very friendly or outgoing. Overall it was ok but I'd only pop in for a lunch if you bump into it.

I don't usually go for the Western-looking places in Marrakech, but le Cafe Des Epices is a great place to unwind while in the souk. The juices are great, the terrace is breezy and the service is impeccable. I wouldn't recommend eating here with such great, more traditional and much cheaper options just a stone throw away.

Great views and food. No upset tummy here. Reasonable prices. However, we found the waiter tried to charge us for the coke we had already paid for and then bamboozled us with inflated prices until we pointed it out but then managed to overcharge us by 70p. Not a lot but this happens frequently, with everyone. We can afford it... More

We agree with a lot of these reviews. This place was recommended to us by our Riad. However, the food was very standard, dry and lacked flavour. Waiter service was especially rude, they did not acknowledge us once when serving food, laying table, they left us nearly an hour waiting for bill!! Crazy! The place lacked any atmosphere. Terrace very... More

As said in the title, the location on a roof is very cool and stylish. It all looks very modern and loungy. The drinks are very nicely prepared and the food is tasteful an genuine as well. Very good price/performance ratio. Try the Thé à la menthe! One of the best i had in Marrakesh. Totally recommandable!

A good place to escape from the overcrowded, chaotic lifestyle of Medina. Tasty traditional food and nice view on Marrakech.

We went for dinner arround 9 PM. The rooftop terrace was very promissing. We ordered Italian pasta to change from all the tahines we had the days before. The pasta was plain, the sauce was plain. NO ALCOHOL neither. And very pricy. We told about this not so good experience...they didn't seem to care.
