Two of us went in April 13. We both ordered from the more expensive of the two set menus (160dh or 100dh), from which you get a choice of two starters, any tagine or kebab, a few desserts and a tea or coffee. Complimentary bread and olives were included.
We sat up on the roof terrace (nice to be in the open) but they also have an indoor section on the first floor. A couple of guys played some music (mandolin and hand drums I think) in here while we ate, though they were quiet where we were. Waiter service was fine.
Starter: a selection of six cold vegetable tapas-style dishes and a selection of deep fried filo parcels. The tapas dishes included hirara, marinated sliced aubergine, a lentil stew, a tapanade-like dish and a couple more I'm struggling to remember (they obviously didn't leave much of an impression either way). They were all okay, with the lentils being a personal favourite. I would've preferred to have had them served hot, but I guess that's the way they're supposed to be. The filo pastries included two each of meat, vegetable and cheese. The vegetable had the most flavour; it was as if they had forgotten the spices when preparing the meat parcel, and the cheese simply contained a bechmel-like white cheese. Something to dip these in would have been nice. The tapas dishes made for a large one person starter, it's worth considering sharing one if you're not too hungry or would prefer to save room for you main.
Main course: beef and apricot tagine and Marrakech beef tagine, both served with couscous. The beef in the tagines was very tender. They were both quite tasty, however there was very little actual sauce involved: what liquid there was, mainly consisted of oil (this was particularly the case with the Marrakech tagine), making for an uneasy stomach at the end of the meal for my companion. The size of the starter meant that we ended up leaving some of the beef. The couscous was fine, with a slight floral taste to it.
Dessert: fruit salad and orange with cinnamon. We did order two orange dishes but it must have been lost in translation as we ended up with a fruit salad. Not a problem as the orange wasn't all that anyway, it simply consisted of a sliced orange arranged on a plate with cinnamon sprinkled over the top, which tasted exactly as you'd imagine. I'm not sure what they were charging for this individually but I'd say that it wouldn't be worth paying for. The fruit salad consisted of bowl of chopped fruit (strawberries, melon, etc) topped up with a gooey mango sauce. This was also nothing to shout home about.
On the whole, we were left disappointed: we were hoping for a good moroccan tagines and Souk Kafe didn't provide. It was a half decent meal, but spoiled by the huge quantities of oil in the tagines and poor desserts. To go again I'd give those a swerve and get a kebab (but I wouldn't go again so that's by-the-by).
