This is a good place to stop and have an omelette, pizza, mint tea, or Coke Zero when visiting the souks or the square has worn you down. Or when expensive, heavy lunches and dinners have started to add up, and you just want a quick meal. It was clean, the service was good, and we left feeling satisfied.

Right in the heart of the souks, this cafe is lovely. Serving Moroccan dishes and pizzas/paninis and more - very good quality of food and service.

This cafe has a good location and is a pleasant spot to spend an hour or two whilst escaping the madness of the souks. The service is slow and a little charmless but reasonably efficient. The food ( at least what I had) isn't great - tasteless pizza and a tarte maison (almond) that was past its prime. I'd recommend... More

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
