“Evening sun + rooftop terrace = bi-winning!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Went there for a drink after a long walk through the city. Installed ourselves in the cushioned benches on the rooftop terrace. Although the view on the neighbourhood isn't too attractive, the view on the horizon - especially when the sun is going under - is beautiful.

We then decided to have dinner here as well. Food was terrific and plentiful.

“Nice setting, food average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic place to have a drink in the late afternoon! We went back the day after to have dinner, but the food was only "ok". We were expecting more of this. Staff was friendly. Clean toilets.

“Groovy, atmospheric classy lounge, terrific terrace. Stylish escape from clamour of the souks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Though a little pricey, in terms of how cheaply one can eat in the city - it is not mind blowing when compared with pizza express! Its just Western prices. Marvellously atmospheric. Very groovy, to be seen in lounge.

“Great setting but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Cafe Arabe has a great location just off the souks and the main square and a roof top view but unfortunately we caught them on a bad day apparently. With Ramadan underway the staff were not really interested in having any guests and unwilling to serve them and the food that finally came was overcooked and not very tasty. Too bad as the potential is there!

Modern and pricey but lovely atmosphere. Was very busy when we visited, food was nice though. Only went once during our stay.
