Cosy, good value rooftop restaurant with great city views.

I was recommended this rooftop restaurant in the Medina by my Riad. It's centrally located and easy enough to find. The tables are arranged in cosy niches, which to my mind resemble Berber tents and are quite seductively placed around the roof space. I ordered a smoked salmon and cream cheese... read more

We had a very nice lunch here on our first day. There were a lot of tourists there, but it has a nice atmosphere, good and friendly service, good food, and I think the price was reasonable for that area of Marrakech. I would go back!

We had several stops here when we wanted to get away from the crowds. It's an ideal place to linger over a coffee. We did have one lunch here which was only fairly average, but as a drinks stop this is excellent.

A gorgeous roof top cafe serving all the national dishes of Morocco and of course; TAJINE! Great atmosphere, beautiful ambiance and great service. Definitely worth it for a lunch!

Recommended by the owner of our riad. A little more mainstream than other restaurants around the Djemaa el-Fna and a little more expensive (majority of crowd was made up of foreigners) but worth it! This was the best meal we had in Marrakech and I have tried to replicate the recipe here at home and can't seem to get close.... More

It's difficult to find, but if you manage to then this is a great rooftop restaurant serving good quality food which is worth the price. We arrived before 1pm and had a choice of sun or shade. The service was also good.

The ambience is good, the menu offers a reasonable section of dishes. A little disappointed with the food when it arrived as it was a little dry. Given the quality of food I had, I felt it was over-priced.

Watching the sun go down on this rooftop terrace was amazing and the atmosphere was nice and calm. Their food was delicious and very authentic, however it would've been nice if they had explained that the tagines and main courses dont come with any couscous or bread, so we couldve ordered some. We were waiting for the sides but after... More

Like most places within the Medina you will need to walk to get here. Lunch was upstairs on the very large roof with good views. There was an interesting and varied menu but not all of the dishes lived up to expectations. Maybe due to their popularity the service was fairly indifferent which was a great pity.

Although it wasn't advertised by the restaurant on the menu we asked for the set meal which at 120 Dhm was very nice. I had the lemon chicken tagine and cinammon orangesnfor desert.
