“Nice lunch stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We stopped by here after our visit to the Jardine Marjorelle.
We sat outside, the service was prompt, food was good and the staff very friendly and bonus, they spoke English! What more can we say?

“good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

After a very disappointing garden visit, we popped in for coffee & were very pleased with the service, drinks and food on offer and the cleanest facilities we experienced in a while. Will visit again next time in the area.

“Best Chicken Brochettes I have ever eaten”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

We stopped here for a drink and lunch before a visit to the Jardin Majorelle and, although tempted by the tajine, I opted for brochettes. They were probably the best chicken kebabs I have ever had the pleasure to have eaten, beautifully moist and tender, with a marinade that included thyme and oregano. They were served with a green salad and bread, and I really enjoyed them. I then had a couple of scoops of ice cream (nougat and chocolate) plus a capucchino. My husband had a slightly off tummy so he only ordered drinks for himself, but actually tucked into the bread as well, and said it was delicious and so fresh (I couldn't eat it as I must follow a gluten free diet). Not cheap, because it is in a prime location and, in fact, there were no tables outside but we were comfortably seated inside the restaurant. I would happily return to eat here, and to recommend the Pause Gourmande to fellow travellers to Marrakech.

“Why go further?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

Good food and friendly service very close to Jardin Marojelle. This bistro has a combination of Moroccan, french and fast foods. It's a good place for people watching too.

“Does not deserve its rating”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

Exiting the Jardins Majorelle at lunchtime, we were happy to find a top 20 establishment by chance. Two tasteless salads left us wondering if they somehow cheated to get that rating. Don't believe the reviews, this place offers nothing more than what the plastic-wrapped stuff you see in the window suggests.
