We went for dinner and were greatly disappointed. The service was extremely poor and the quality of the food likewise, and we waited almost an hour before we were served. Not recommended. A waste of money.

This cafe has a lovely courtyard, with shade and nice tables to sit at , with the bougainvillea flowers all around. We had a light lunch here. The drinks came quickly, we had to wait a little while for the Pizza , but it was really delicious when it did. The lasagne and the chips were good too. The city... More

I had a delicious vegetable tagine here, which I was surprised did not comprise of cous cous, just vegetables. They were delicious though. Lovely staff, no complaints.

We were charmed by the location and didn't check reviews before we went for lunch. The Moroccan salads were average, the goats cheese salad was disgusting and the pizza somehow tasted of nothing! Go elsewhere!

The best things about this place were the helpful waiter and the smiley cashier. As to the food very unimaginative, with suspect service to boot... although waiter was very good for directions elsewhere! Many a better restaurant than this.

Ordered a herb chèvre chaud salad in this restaurant which has a lovely location close to te souks in Marrakesh. The salad arrived after about 30 minutes and consisted of iceberg lettuce, half a tomato and some soggy bread with lukewarm goats cheese on top. No fresh herbs only a flake or two of dried herbs sprinkled on the cheese.... More

We had a quick lunch here. Location is very nice, however neither the food nor the service were good. Unfriendly staff, food was not particularly good! Might be nice for a coffee only.

Relaxing courtyard away from the hustle in the souks. Vegetable tagine was excellent. Friendly service. Hope the free wi-fi starts working again.

Located on the edge of the main souk area, cafe bougainvillea is suitably placed to escape the tightly packed alleys. The highlights are location and venue; it is a pretty courtyard space - low points were the unwelcoming service and price for an average lunch. Kofta tagine (tasty), chicken & mushroom panini (disappointing) with water and coke came to 171... More

A refuge from the hustle and bustle, and red hot souks. I only had tea but service was excellent and the ambience delightfully cool. I will certainly be back.
