“Great food and location in Gueliz”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

We sought out Grand Cafe de la Poste as we were exploring Gueliz and our guidebook said that it served good club-sandwiches!! After a few days of traditional Moroccan food we were feeling a little worse for wear from the night before and craving lemonade, salad and sandwiches in a chilled atmosphere-which is exactly what we got!!

The food was lovely and we had a nice time, it totally fitted the bill for us. We sat outside and watched the world go by but the inside decor is almost colonial - dark wood and ceiling fans. I would definitely recommend it as a lunch venue for Gueliz.

“Good location but somewhat overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

A French brasserie in Marrakech. The menu reflects this as much as the decor. Arrived without a booking a little early (they open at 7.30PM) and told to hang on. However people were going in at that time. I suspect a regular clique (upstairs) get to go whenever they want. Food unobjectionable but a bit overpriced, as is the wine. The final bill worked out more than for either of the two very good restaurants we tried in Marrakech. In summary, I would not reject it, but be a bit more picky on the menu next time.

“A gem in the rough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I didn't feel comfortable walking down 'Mohamed V Avenue' to find this place with all its beggars and ltter, but it truely is a 'Gem in the Rough'. Nice bar and cafe, however very expensive. Expect to pay nearly £6 for a larger. Didn't have the pleasure of eating but it look exceptional.

“Very Overated !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

After being told we must go, we were excited to be " in the most fashionable restaurant where all the ex pats congregate!! We were very disappointed! Think Cafe Rouge (restaurant chain in UK) and you will get the idea! food was fine, not a huge menu so was a little difficult to find something to eat also! When the food came, it was fine, but definately not what we had expected after all the hype! This, as with most the restaurants we visited were very overated, but being from London maybe we are spoilt, and this is good for Morrocco!!

“Great for cocktails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Le Grand Cafe de la Poste takes you back to the glamourous 1920s and makes for at great contrast to the old town. We went for pre-dinner cocktails which include a snack buffet which was worth every dirham.
