Had a fairly overpriced lunch here. Basic food, nothing special. We were the only guests in the 4 storey building... A bit awkward. The venue is beautiful and the view from the terrasse is great, but that's about the only reason to visit this place. Recommended by Guide de Routard? In my experience they used to advise high quality food... More

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
