“Safe and good...very touristy but good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Cafe Arabe is a safe, fine bet for dinner. The food is quite good, but it is definitely there for the tourists...and after several dinners at the jemma el fna that is okay! They serve wine, not something you find everywhere certainly, and good food that might be a bit pricier than what it is at the jema...but it is also quieter, and fun to look around at all the other tourists!

“Great views, relaxing but quite expensive!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

It was a great restaurant to relax after a day shopping in the souks. It was more expensive than other lunch options in Marrakech but was slightly more upmarket! We both had pasta which was really nice. Definitely recommend for a great lunch.

“35 Dirham for a good glass of local wine... with a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Head to the top of the stairs for a good view. The house wine from Meknes was tasty, and may have been our first glass of wine in 3 weeks in Morrocco. Beers are and liquor is a bit spendier, but alas, a classy joint.

“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
