“When you want some variety, call in here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Great place to watch the sunset with a grand choice of drinks and cocktails. Having said that we were slightly disappointed with the Ginger Caipirinha but the wine was more than adequate. Lovely food, pleasant staff, probably suit families with young children who've had one tagine too many.

“good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

a charming courtyard setting plus a roof terrace.

good local food sensibly priced for Europeans but a little pricey by local standards.

Staff a little cold but worth a visit

“Nice place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

This is a nice place just off the souks. We sat down in the restaurant, in the courtyard of the riad and it was cozy. Good morrocan/italian food. Generous portionsizes. Can recommend a visit. Although it's full of tourists we would go back.

“Nice view from the terrace.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

If you find it in the souks, visit it for coffee, lunch, dinner or a drink after sunset. Nice music and pleasant space. Morrokean style and architecture. We had a bottle of wine seating at the terrace! The staff need to improve. People makes the difference.

“Cafe Arabe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Not cheap but great food and location.
Lovely service, too.
You have to book but worth the effort.
Very comfortable and European but that's not a bad thing after 4 days in a Riad.
