“Late lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

It's all a matter of perspective and expectations really.
Not good for the infirm, as it has 2 flights of narrow stairs to reach the terrace.
I've just had their £8 set menu which, lets face it, is cheap by most standards - menu in English.
Olives (which I love these days) and some bread to nibble on while the soup starter was done. Soup came with additional bowl of dates and lemon wedges. The soup had plenty of taste - a bit flowery for my liking - and a good portion of big bits within.
Very soon replaced by the citrus chicken Tajine accompanied by a bowl of home made chips. The chicken, although quite a small portion of leg which I've paid £2 for at a different place, was sizzling, and very hot and the first juicy chicken I've had in 3 Weeks

“Good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

the food was good, the service was not, our waiter left us three times whilst taking our order and food service was slow. They had two musicians there at the time which added a lovely atmosphere to the restaurant.

“Excellent food and best value in city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Best moroccon food we tasted and at a fraction of the price of some pf the top 5 restaurants on ta.

Hard to find without attempted husslers on route, 'tanneries auction circular/closed today...' but is a must to visit - so do persevere!

“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.
