Visited this place in December. We enjoyed great views of the square while sitting by the fire. Food was very decent too.

Our Riad owner recommended La Lampe Magique for dinner in Chefchaouen, and I have to say that besides having a terrific view of the happenings in the square below, we found the experience of eating there underwhelming. We were there after what had obviously been a busy lunch meal for them, and the restaurant was filthy. Tablecloths were changed on... More

I picked this restaurant for dinner as there seemed to be few other choices, and was persuaded by comments about the ‘fabulous’ views of the square, and the alleged quirky coolness of the place. It’s true that Magic Lamp has a certain charm – when it was built it must have been the coolest place around - and it occupies... More

The restaurant overlooks the main square- really nice. Our waiter was excellent and very friendly. Decor is also very local and appealing. Food was enjoyable. All around nice meal for dinner.

This is a great place to have drinks and watch the world go by below in the square. The food and service were average - nothing bad but nothing special. The kofta plates looked good but the tagine we ordered was a small portion. On a side note there is nothing western on the menu if you feel like a... More

I am not easy to impress when it comes to Moroccan food, since I cook it all the time at home, and I have met pretty good Moroccan cooks, however, I found the food to be exquisite. We had a vegetable & beef couscous, to which they added raisings and caramelized onions just please me. We also had a lamb... More

The restuarant has a wonderful terrace at the top of the building that is great for sunsets when the entire village glows with a variety shades of blue. We ordered their menu for 850 Dirams (starter, main course and desster) and were not disappointed! I would highly recommend this place.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience. La Lampe Magique was our first eating out experience in Morocco and it was a real treat. Not only did we have great food at a very affordable price, but had an amazing view sitting on the top terrace. It was so nice that we mentioned our visit in our blog: http://www.whyarentyouturningleft.co.uk/2014/03/FewStepsIntoAfricaChefchaouenMorocco.html

We were wary of this place as it looked like a bit of a tourist trap. But I have to say we had some of the best food we had in 6 weeks in Morocco here. They were perfectly happy to just serve the main course for 50dh (three courses 85dh) and both our choices were delicious. Smaller than your... More

Cool decor but average food. For what you paid compared to the restaurants in the main square it wasn't much better. Good view of the square and good atmosphere so worth a visit one night.
