Firstly the good. The vapour spray is refreshing, and they make a particularly nice nous-nous coffee. It's also a very nice place to chat with friends over a couple of non-alcoholic beverages. The food though - a Caesar salad and a smoked salmon plate - was disappointingly bland. Also, the service was surly, which is a rarity in Morocco in... More

This souk restaurant is lovely for lunch or dinner. We liked it so much we went back twice. Small plates, tagines and fresh fish. No alcohol.

Not easy to find, but well worth the hunt. On the hidden, roof-top terrace each group gets their own cabana. In the Summer they're vaporized; in the Winter (when we last visited) they're area warmed. The food was tantalizing and the service was personal. Suggestion: 'Any of the slow food'.

We ate here on one occasion. The roof terrace is hidden away in the souks and is a welcome surprise as you enter. A stylish and large area with individual spacious cabanas, all cooled by water vaporisers. I ate a delicious lemon, olive and chicken tagine - probably the best tagine of my Moroccan stay and the rest of the... More

Despite being nestled inside the souks, Terrasse D’espices was surprisingly easy to find. We were greeted by friendly staff and then lead to a private booth to begin our meal. Two of us started with the tomato gazpacho, which was deliciously refreshing after a day walking through the medina. The others all had a smoked salmon salad which was also... More

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. On your way... More

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
