“Had enough of tagine? Cheese me!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Ok -- I know it's a bit weird to go to Morrocco and rave about a cheese restaurant, but Cheese Me is a brilliant break from the spice and couscous. We wanted something light but delicious having had a huge tourist's lunch in the Medina and Cheese Me was perfect. As the other reviewers have said, the owner is fabulous -- friendly, knowledgeable and good fun. The 10-cheese platter for two was perfect, served with as much bread as you needed and taking your palate from subtle to strong -- wonderful.

The restaurant is at the less busy end of Rue de la Liberte (we had almost given up), but easy to find once you know to keep going. It's not really very Morroccan, but it IS perfect if you want a change.

“Would defiantly recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Food excellent good selection of wine.
Service and ambiance exceptional.
It is at the end of the street based in the new town and worth looking up.

“magnifique!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Saw this restaurant opposite our hotel and decided to check it out. So worth it! The steak, cheese, desert... everything was delicious and we went out with a beaming smile on our faces. The service was great and the owners are so friendly. We always had the feeling that the staff were there to cater to our needs and checked if everything was to our satisfaction. All in all a delightful evening! Will definitely come back again!

“Gorgeous food, friendly staff, good atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

We visited Cheese Me based on a recommendation on Twitter and it turned out to be a lovely start to our trip to Marrakech! I would recommend taking a taxi as its tucked down a side street so its a bit difficult to find! The place is small but very well decorated in a modern and clean style. The owner is lovely, very chatty and knowledgable about the food he is serving. The food was gorgeous, a real must for cheese lovers with a good range of wines! Only downside...a little pricey! However I say it's worth it :)

“Cheese me pleased me!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We found this gem very near our hotel and it exceeded our expectations. A wonderful selection of fairly priced cheeses and tapas offered by a friendly and welcoming host. All the food was beautifully presented, and the wine complemented the food perfectly - plus the chocolate fondant was incredible.

A calm, relaxing atmosphere that was a perfect antidote to the bustle of the main town. We will be recommending this place to all our friends who will be visiting Marrakech!
