Nice place, regular food

This is a nicely located restaurant with a great view of Place Lahdime. Unfortunately it does not looks very clean, cats walking around and under the table as well as chairs and tables left at corners give a really bad impression. Food was regular and bathrooms not so good and with a lady asking... read more

We went to go here late one afternoon to enjoy the square from above.. in front of us were a local couple who were charged 30dh to go in then they tried to charge us 50dh. When we questioned it we were told it was for any drink we wanted well most drinks on average around the square are 10-15... More

Aside from the nice view this place offers little else. The brochettes were cooked to a crisp and nearly inedible yet served anyway. If you go, don't eat here.

When my daughter said, "that's not happening" I thought she was being squeamish. However, I spit my meat back out onto my plate, something that hasn't been necessary in quite some time. The cats didn't seem to mind so we fed all the meat to them. Service was fine, view overlooking the plaza was nice. I would stick to bottled... More

the service was friendly but a little bit disorganised. but we overlooked this mishap as the food was very tasty, well prepared and the view from the terrace over the Place Lahdime was well worth the climb up the stairs.

This cafe is not great - first impressions are that it is not very clean and has no atmosphere. It has a terrace with a great view over the Place El Helim and beyond the city, but it has little else to recommend it unless you are desperate for a fix of free wifi. Coffee was under heated and overpriced.... More

Liked the view! But the service and hygenic wasnt all that. You pay 15 DH in advance at the door (high season). You will receive one consumption for that. A lot of love couples visit the cafe.

We chose this restaurant as it looked great ; on terrace overlooking square, nice entrance. But service was very poor; surly, slow. Set menu and not cheap, 70 dirhams for a poor couscous from a packet. We were with moroccan colleagues who had to demand more olives; they gave us 2 small saucers between 13 people! Overcharged us at the... More

They only had a pre-set menu - I chose the chicken cous-cous - It had was made from grilled (and very dry) chicken breast which they had put on top of a cous-cous platter. The meat was so dry (nothing to do with the stew-type meat you get with a cous-cous) that I ended up giving it to the cat... More
