Truly Gourmet Pause

We found this cafe on our way to the garden, enjoyed two tagines and their cocktails. The options, the prices and the taste are definitely better the cafe inside the garden.

My husband got pizza and he liked it a lot. I got moroccan food and loved it! It was a big, generous portion that I couldnt eat it all myself. Conveniently located right outside of Jardins Majorelle. We didnt speak french or arabic so it made it a bit difficult as I wanted recommendations about moroccan food. But we managed... More

The food here is only ok. They have a good mix of Moroccan and western food. The tajine was sufficient and prices very reasonable. It's nothing special, but it's location is perfect for going to the park after. Note: Do not get any drinks here if you are a tourists as they use tap water for the ice/to water down... More

My family & I stopped in for lunch just after visiting Majorelle Gardens. The outside tables were all taken so we ate inside. This was lovely as it was air conditioned. We then noticed that they had one of those mist machines outside which blew cold air over diners - a really nice touch in the extreme heat. The pizza's... More

The apartment we rent whenever we are in Marrakech is above this cafe - by default, this is where we have most breakfasts, some lunch and some dinners. We always feel very at ease, comfortable and happy eating here - the staff have become familiar with us and our preferences. They are the most welcoming and friendly people, from the... More

We were just searching for a restaurant to have a quick meal at after our visit to Jardin Majorelle, so were not expecting a fancy meal as such but turned out to be a great experience. I was craving for something non Moroccon after the repeated Tajine meals so requested for a spicy spaghetti with fish and I was very... More
