“Good to escape bland tagines for some flavour!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

I really wanted to visit this cafe having read the reviews, but found it so difficult to locate on my first day in Marrakech due to the lack of street signs telling you where you are! On my last day I had more of an idea about the layout of the city and found signs for the Earth Cafe. It looks to be a little dubious, situated down an alleyway, but once you get inside you are pleased you went.
The decor is lovely, local style, with little nooks and crannies complete with seating. Would be lovely if you had gone as a family or group as you could be quite secluded.
There were a lot of different choices for veggies and vegans. I was hoping for some food in local style but with flavour (which I assume you got in other places if you chose meat based cous cous and tagines!) but the food here was more internationally based.
Service was good for Morocco, the juice was tasty and the portion sizes good. Based on UK prices it was reasonable, but a little bit more pricy than what you would get elsewhere in the Medina. Worth it, though, for a tasty, enjoyable meal at long last!

“Cute Place but Disappointing Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

My Rough Guide made this out to be much better than it was, although we may have ordered the wrong things. We had a noodle dish and a fried rice that were both mediocre and small portions. The beet juice I had was the best part of the meal. Service took a long time and didn't seem too attentive at all. I felt like this place was getting by because of the review in my book and the fact that there are so few vegetarian/vegan places in Morocco. If you go, get one of the filo dough dishes. Those looked much better than what we ordered.

“Tasty, good value vegetarian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Earth cafe is centrally located and well signposted from Zitoun Kedim. I returned three times during my recent trip to Marrakesh as I found the vegetarian food elsewhere pretty disappointing. They serve generous portions of freshly cooked, crunchy veg topped with ricotta filo parcels, pumpkin spring rolls or veggie burgers.

“Good option for Vegetarians and Vegans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Food freshly prepared in front of you. Pumpkin spring roll is delicious. Only 2 Vegan options though... pumpkin spring rolls and vegetable burger (without bun).

Also serve good non vegetable food (chicken dishes).

“veggies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

we have just had lunch here having seen the reviews on Tripadvisor. being veggies we are used to having limited choices when on holiday. having not eaten meat for over 30 years i have learnt to be grateful for any choice. I often find that getting a vegetarian meal that contains vegetables is impossible so eating here i was like a kid in a candy store. everything was freshly cooked and very flavoursome. my husband who is a meat eater was dragged along and he enjoyed his filo parcel.
would recommend the food but just look past the decor it is rustic and earthy not a posh place to eat but definately the nicest so far. we are going to try another Tripadvisor reccommened restaurant for dinner Cheese me, lets hope it lives up to its reviews.
