Touristy, but good salads to start

Although there were just three of us, this is clearly a spot for large tour groups, which generally means pretty lousy food. We were lucky enough to be led upstairs and away from the tour groups where we had an innocuous lunch on the nicely decorated second floor. The menu is typical of almost... read more

Great view from the top floor of Menes and the underground prison. Just walk from the square through the gates to the mausoleum and it's on the right hand side. Try to go to the top floor for lunch. Climbing the stairs will help your appetite

While the restaurant is attractive enough and was clean, the food was tasteless. It was the only meal that we did not enjoy during our week in Morocco. In addition, the waiter and his helpers were all busy on their smart phones and uninterested in the customers.

Our driver brought us here (it seems a recurring theme in the reviews of this restaurant) but differently from the experience of many reviewers our lunch was ok: - the terrace is nice - no issue with the staff - food (vegetarian tagine, vegetarian couscous, vegetarian soup) not spectacular but abundant in size I agree that you may get better...

Based on the reviews here the restaurant seems to have improved immensely. We had very good food and service and we sat on the terrace in the sunshine overlooking the 'Christian prison'. The food was fresh and tasty and I would recommend it to anyone. Don't be put off by early reviews as something has changed.

We enjoyed eating on the terrace. The mixed grill and chicken pastilla were delicious. We requested the smaller menu which offered individual servings.

We were brought here by our guide. We gave him a list of restaurants in Meknes and asked him to bring us to one of them. He said he did not recognize any restaurant on our list and recommended Salma restaurant. Even though I knew he was lying we agreed to go to Salma, We did not want to order... More

It was hot and we were tired but not hungry. We were by Moulay Ismael mousoleum. We just wanted a place were to have something small to eat and to rest a little. The parking attendant suggested this place( Salma). Salma in Arabic means safe. This place was not safe for me and my friends. The owner over charged us.... More

It's in walking distance from bab mansour gate. It's nice restaurant (even fancy), offering various foods in the menu. It has WIFI, but sometimes, in some places the connection was a little bit slow. It has terrace where you can enjoy your lunch with the view of Medina. The food was OK, but a little bit pricey. Most of customers... More
