“A hidden gem above it all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

My favourite meal by far during my stay in Marrakech was at Souk Kafe. Whether it was the friendly service, deeeelicious food, the rooftop escape from the souk mayhem below or a combination of all three, I don't know -- and it doesn't really matter. We loved it. Thank you, Souk Kafe. This is a must-do eatery for anyone staying in Marrakech.

“A Gem in the Souk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

We only found this Restaurant by word of mouth of folk staying in our Riad (the best way to find hidden gems). The small multi-floored restaurant cooks superb local food with just a twist of originality. The price is reasonable and they (on the two occasions we were there) had a local folk music duo, who were excellent. I really recommend you give it a try, if they are full - which they were on a wet evening in March 13, the excellent Le Jardin is just across the way.

“Definatly worth finding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

This restaurant is great value for money! we found the food was excellent and good value. The starter platter was especially enjoyable- offering 6 starters which were tasty but not filing. I would strongly recommend going for an ice cream for dessert- full of flavour and best desert I had in Morrocco!
The band played very pleasent joyfull music which added a lovely touch to the evening.

“Excellent Moroccan food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Excellent Moroccan food, live traditional Moroccan music and good value for money. Bit crowded if it rains as the roof covering the terrace leaks other than that good.
