Our guide took us here to try the berber pizza, and it was delicious. This restaurant is in the middle of nowhere, so I wouldn't suggest TA readers go out of their way to eat here, but if you're in Merzouga, it's definitely worth a visit. There were four of us sharing one "pizza" (filled with vegetables and prepared with... More

We have randomly stopped for a coffee, but when the food started rolling by, we could not resist but to order ourselfs a snack. We had berber "pizza", and it was delicious. Afterwards when other guests have cleared out, the owner had a chat with us. He was very friendly, and explained how he got to where he is now,... More

If you are in a hurry, this is not the place for you. If you can wait for absolutely delicious home cooked food, then this is your place. We had a fabulous dinner of local cuisine that was unique and prepared beautifully. It is a small place outside of Merzouga and you need to take a cab/driver to get there.... More

We were greeted by the owner who Was so friendly in explaining the menu and their culture. We tried the Berber pizza and maroccan salad and absolutely loved it. The ambience and room is fantastic and certainly one of... More

After eating an array of Tagines, it was a delight to have lunch at Restaurant Café Nora. Loved the "Berber Pizza" in a relaxed atmosphere. Clean and quick service. Pleasant buzz of conversation from folk from all over the world. The prices were a delight, for the first time on our Morocco trip did not feel "stung". Definitely worth a... More

This little eatery with it's 3 course set menu for 85 MAD is a must. The Berber Pizza is to die for. Best meal so far in Morocco.

This is a MUST. If you are in the Merzouga area you simply MUST eat here. It is literally in the middle of nowhere, but WOW what food! The owner is an amazing man who will show you his menu on a piece of animal hide, and then he will personally go into the kitchen and cook, from scratch, all... More

I'm not going to lie.. I was tagine-ed out after a few days of eating nothing but tangines and brochettes (kabobs). Luckily, our guide took us to this amazing restaurant (named after the owner's daughter) for lunch where we got to try something local, different and DELICIOUS! The ambience of the restaurant is the feeling of being at someone's house... More

I was introduced to this restaurant on one of my first Rough Tours trips. I am now a fan and every time I am in Merzouga, I never fail to eat here - either take out or dine in. Hassan the proprietor is so nice, friendly and charming. He is also an artist! His food specialty and my favourite is... More

Nora's café is unique, and one of the highlights of our time at erg chebbi. The berber food--and yes, we had the pizza also--was one of our favorite meals while in morocco...it was superb. After the meal, Hassan, the owner, cook, and server--dressed in a beautiful blue robe and a white headwrap, sat down with us and poured us berber... More
