“Warm haven on a rainy evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2015 NEW

We enjoyed a lovely meal on a very rainy and chilly evening. We were first to arrive at about 7.30pm but the place soon filled up. The food was exceptional and I have since eaten quite a few kefte/oeuf tagines and this was by far the very best with a delicious sauce. Also the tagines come with cous cous (or chips) and most everywhere else we have eaten, cheap or less so, only came with bread - so nice touch. Lovely bread also provided! Starters a bit pricey and limited choice but equally tasty. Heaters were on so it was nice and warm. What made it hard to leave were the two musicians that started playing in the middle of the room. Authentic - and no notion of asking for tips, though we would gladly have contributed. We were told to eat here and then go to Le Jardin for a drink - but actually Cafe Souk do serve beer at, I think it was, 50 dirhams for a can of Flag Special - so not cheap but possible.
Altogether highly, highly recommended.

“Cool breeze on the roof terrace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2015 NEW

The Souk cafe is a very pleasant spot in the medina of Marrakech. The menu is complete, prices are reasonable. The homemade icecreams and the harira lentil soup are recommendations. They have a very nice rooftop terrace where you can catch a refreshing breeze. You can recognize the Souk cafe from a distance, there is a huge teapot on top of it.
No need to make reservations, there is enough space for many many people.

“Delightful service, food OK, good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2015

First of all, the value for money was very good. My wife and I had a large menu and a small one and we shared'em both.
I could not eat anything more than what was offered! Actually, I could not make any room for dessert so the waiter offered us to roll it to take away! Win!
My couscous was ok but my wife's tagine was overcooked (and not just a little)!
Starters were very good.
The rooftop is very good and comfy.

“Lovely little cafe. Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2015

I made the wrong menu choice (a chicken pastry which was very dry and tasteless) but friends had really good tagines. Lovely little terrace - very relaxing - friendly staff and a happy, authentic atmosphere. Would definitely return - for a tagine!
