Delightfully simple and welcoming place with plenty of space to soak up the souks. Tasty sandwiches, cold drinks and sweet mint tea, smiling staff and relaxed atmosphere. Visited several times over the weekend, the balcony is fun to look down on the market of curiosities.

Great atmosphere and simple food. Sandwiches are a nice find and watching hustle bustle from terrace was fabulous. Hamburgers also a bit different and would recommend.

Loved this place. Good value. Nice food if peckish. Great location to people watch and soak up the local atmosphere. Wifi which is a little hit and miss. Get next to the balcony on the higher floors and while away the day reading or planning your next shopping purchase. Always my regular daily haunt in Marrakech if in souks area.

A good spot to find to cool down in the heat of the day. Open all day with different levels to look out on to the Spice square sand where you can also see turtles and lizards for sale. The slave market was apparently next door to the cafe. Clientele seems to be entirely foreign but it is a comfortable,... More

Run by the Jardin people, great location in the place d'espices. Only frequented by europeans, but a welcome respite from the souks nevertheless.

We stumbled across here and had sandwiches and fresh juices. Staff were friendly, loved the music and relaxed atmosphere and great views over a little market area be it on the first floor or the terrace. Recommended.

The only amazing thing about this place is the view at the top. The food is average, good but nothing special and it's a bit overpriced.

We visited this place on a recommendation from a friend, though there was nothing wrong with it, it's not that great and we had better experiences in other places in Marrakech. We sat on the roof terrace and ordered a late lunch, the cafe burgers were tasty and well presented , sadly the chicken in the salad was tough as... More
