Great atmosphere

The restaurant is great, with lots of rooms and a small garden where there's music. At the end of our meal, we sang and danced with people from other tables, it was really fun. The staff is very friendly and the food was very good. A must-go.

The menu here offers an excellent choice of Moroccan and other types of food, which was tasty and beautifully prepared. However, the service was pretty slack and the first time we visited, we didn't stay because nobody came to serve us!

The owner at the riad where I was staying recommended Caravane Cafe, and I am glad she did. From the sign on the street, you'd have no idea how beautiful it is inside. I sat in an upstairs room with a fireplace and great artwork. Although I'm writing this too late to remember my exact choices, I do recall how... More

You should go here for the entertainment rather than the food. That is not to say the food is poor, it's pretty decent, but it's the overall evening that you will remember. Make a reservation so that you have a table in the courtyard rather than the siderooms. And bring plenty of small notes (20 dirhams), because you will want... More

Great food and live entertainment. Staff were friendly and you should visit their other restaurant which is a short taxi ride.

This was on our list of restaurants but not on the day we ate here as our other choice was closed. We were not disappointed, we went there twice.

We accidentally happened across the Caravane Cafe (we had stopped to take a picture of the giant cat mural on the wall outside) and are so glad that we decided to check out the menu. The restaurant has a beautiful interior courtyard, filled with the owner's own art and some beautiful plants (and 2 friendly cats). There was a terrace... More

So glad we decided to eat here on our night in the town, such a great evening and one to remember. Staff were incredibly charming and friendly, and it was great just chatting away let alone eating there. The restaurant is a delightful and quirky riad, full of colourful art and plants and trinkets, and seating is on several floors,... More

Visited with my wife, had the lamb tajine and the gratinated spider crab. Both were very fine and delicious. Also the starters, seafood pastries and Moroccan salad, were pure awesomeness!
