This is a good café for lunch near the Majorelle Gardens. The place is spotless and serves good value food such as pizzas and paninis. Happy to recommend

“Great Casual Food and the Friendliest Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2015

The apartment we rent whenever we are in Marrakech is above this cafe - by default, this is where we have most breakfasts, some lunch and some dinners. We always feel very at ease, comfortable and happy eating here - the staff have become familiar with us and our preferences. They are the most welcoming and friendly people, from the owner, manager and servers. The food selection is extensive, great tasting and inexpensive. My favourite is their seafood pizza but they have Plat de jours which vary from tajines to couscous. They also offer pastries, salads and gelato. It is a popular place for tourists visiting the Jardin du Majorelle.

I highly recommend this place for its great casual food in a most relaxing, friendly atmosphere - thanks in particular to Karim.

“Nice relaxing place while watching streetlife”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2015

like most had a refreshing drinks and snack here following Jardins Majorelle visit. Sat out front watching the busy street action in cool shade. Very friendly staff and reasonable prices. Topped off a good afternoon sight seeing.

“Surprisingly awesome food!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2015

We were just searching for a restaurant to have a quick meal at after our visit to Jardin Majorelle, so were not expecting a fancy meal as such but turned out to be a great experience. I was craving for something non Moroccon after the repeated Tajine meals so requested for a spicy spaghetti with fish and I was very impressed with what i ate. great service, great food and an amazing experience. If you are craving for Italian food in Marrakech, this is the place for you!

“Nice pizza post-Jardin Majorelle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2015

We considered getting lunch in the Jardin majorelle cafe but reviews suggested it would be a bit fussy and over priced. This place is just down the street and was fine, 70ish MAD for a decent pizza and cheaper for sandwiches. Nice staff.
