3 courses for 130 dirham. You get what you pay for in life! Canned veg, fish with a mushroom sauce and chips (I kid you not!) and a wailing musician. Visit if you dare.

Beautiful rooftop terrace and a nice reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the medina. The entrance is a narrow door off Rue Sidi Abdelaziz and so you can't tell from below that it has such a high terrace. It is therefore a nice surprise when you climb up to the top floor and get such a great view without... More

When I first came to this restaurant I simply could not believe the stunning view - you can sit on the rooftop terrace there and literally see all round Marrakech, see everything there is to see, sitting in blissful peace at the top of a building which is higher than anything else in the whole area. The staff are absolutely... More

If you are looking for the very best view in Marrakech this is literally it. Not sure how they were allowed to build higher than the other places but it appears to be one story taller than literally every single building in the height controlled city. This creates an amazing vantage point that you literally can't get anywhere else in... More

La Terrasse Ben Youssef was the first restaurant we ate at when we arrived in Marrakech and we had an incredible experience. The mint tea was fresh and not too sweet, but the pastilla was the crowning glory of our meal. The warka crust is incredibly flaky, with each layer very well seasoned -- the perfect dish to taste Morocco's... More

The food here was grotty - about the worse we had in Morocco. Overpriced small bone ridden beef tagine which was lacking in taste. The vegetable tagine was just bad. View was nice but did not make up for the bad food. Slow service. I would suggest going elsewhere as there are much better choices.

Arrived there because we didn't wnat to go to Jema el Fna square to eat after a long day walking through the Medina. The food is good, not exceptional but good. Price are reasonable for the quality/quantity of the meal (count £15 for two). The best stuff of this restaurant is the view on the terrace. You should go there... More

Good view from the top terrace. The soup of the day was very good. My main was average and the fillet of fish my wife had was fairly soggy and none to appetising. The terrace did get a little cool after sunset so bring a fleece. The waiters actually brought us some table cloths to wrap around ourselves which was... More

We visited Marrakech at the end of March. Our Riad being in the old Medina meant a fair walk to Jemma El Fna but we found this lovely eating place les than 5 minutes away. The food was excellent quality and there was plenty of it. We went there several times during our stay. Rooftop views and friendly staff. Recommended!
