“Best in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014 NEW

I lived in Marrakech for a year, and Kechmara is a staple. Great food, great service, an oasis in a sometimes chaotic city.

“Excellent place for food, drinks & football!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

One of the best places to visit in Marrakech, visited twice in our 4 day stay. Food & drinks one night and just drinks on the other night. Managed to watch the Manchester derby & the Real Madrid games (Youssef & the staff looked after this for us, thank you) but its not primarily a sports bar as the Terrace upstairs is a romantic place for food & drinks and the other parts of the restaurant & bar is great. How they managed to blend all the elements together is a credit to the owners. Good selection of food & drinks and definitely recommend a visit.

“Fantastic, what a treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

I loved this restaurant, which was such a delight after several distinctly average Moroccan meals in touristy restaurants in the old city. All the food was presented well, delicious and they were generous portions. Great cocktails too and the waitress was nice. We went for dinner relatively early in the evening (I think we were sat down by 8pm) so service was very quick.

“Lunch Haven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

Have had lunch twice here now. Salads on the first, flute sandwiches on the second.

Prompt service, good wine, good food.

A lunch haven as far as we are concerned . Don't recognise the negative comments at all.

“Kechmara rocks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

Love the place, great bistro food and burgers, awesome atmosphere, best terrace to eat in Gueliz (new city).
Impossible to avoid, unless your a 100 or just a tourist who want's to see only fake Morocco tradition stuff.
The owners are a lovely couple, guys from toulouse with a super sense for decoration.
Perfect for a drink before heavy partying, i could not stop shazaming the the background music.
If Q8flyer think their burgers are the worst, i can't imagine he has been around much…really.
If there is 10 place to be when you are in Kech , Kechmara is on the top list.
Thanks to Arnaud and Pascal
