Easy to find location, OK food

We had piazza and a Moroccan salad at Bougainvillea Cafe. The main reason we choose this restaurant was that it was close to our riad and after wandering around all day in the medina we were exhausted. The piazza was fine and the service was OK. My friend is a big soccer fan and they had the... read more

With such a accolade of awards we thought this place would be nice but we were disappointed. They seemed to be taken by suprise of our arrival at mid afternoon for a coffee and morroccan pastries. 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

I have been to this cafe many times before and had always enjoyed it. The quality of the food this time however was only ok, and the place has just become too touristy.

they truly don't care what they serve, salad with a mayo ketchup sauce instead of the olive oil they try to sell at the same time. i had the feeling they know that nobody will come back so they don't even try to offer tasty food. left pretty much everything untouched and while paying they were rude. what a failure!

Nice garden, short waiting time, pizza was o.k, service also. I had tajin the other day and that was o.k too. Not spectacular but certainly worth a visit.

Service was not great and I was offered a drink that was out of date. We ordered starters and mains and the main courses were placed on the table before I had finished my starter. The food was actually quite tasty, but the decor and the staff let it down.

We stumbled across this lovely haven in the heat of the late morning, where we had some refreshing mint tea. Shaded by the eponymous bougainvilia it was very charming. We didn't eat, but the food looked nice.

We came across this coffee shop accidently. I wouldn't be able to tell where it is exactly in Medina as the Souks are all overlapping each other. the place has a nice feel and atmosphere, the staff was attentive and polite. Mint tea was nice, Panini was average but the orange with cinnamon and icing sugar was a winner. Food... More
