we called in for a quick lunch but found they weren't geared up to provide much food. I think they had to send out for the ingredient. Quality wasn't great - even for a quick lunch. Try somewhere else.

This cafe was one of our way points to our riad and in our last day we finally stopped for a quick meal. Service was prompt and the food pretty good, but even while empty the place has a lot if ambient noise.

We stopped here for a quick tea and coffee after having explored the souk. It is quite an enchanting place, with lots of birds nesting in the trees.

The courtyard is very pleasant for a coffee or cold drink but I found better places in Marrakech for far less money.

We had a look around and the courtyard was in the shade and cold. They had some heaters but as there wasn't anyone there... More
