“Cheese lovers heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Great place if you love cheese as every dish had cheese (except some deserts). Various cheeses, cooked with various meats in different ways. Shame we don't drink wine. Very good service & a friendly nice owner who gave us some local tips

“An oasis in the desert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We learned about "Cheese Me" at our terrific Moroccan cooking class at Faim d'epices and were absolutely blown away by the quality and variety of French cheese dishes and world wines that were available. After over a week of Morrocan spices and the local table wine served in many of the restaurants and riads, our senses were completely satisfied with the look and feel of this chic restaurant, the warm welcome of the owner and server, the beautiful presentation of the cheese appetizers we chose and the beautiful taste sensation of the wine pairings we enjoyed. Fabulous!

“Great Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

We nearly gave up trying to find this place as we got lost in the new city, however as we were on our way back, we came across it and how glad we did. We sat upstairs overlooking the street the service was very good, me and my wife chose the selection of cheeses over a bottle of red Morocco wine.

Then after we just ordered, the owner must have come back and he was straight upstairs talking to us, he was really friendly and telling us all about Cheese Me. When the cheeses came he explained each one individually and told us, which way we should eat them. They all came with a side accompaniment, ie grape, apple, red current jelly etc, we also had warm bread that topped up as soon as it got low.

It was real fun trying all the different cheeses, from soft cheese, goat cheese, hard cheese and smelly cheese's some were really nice and others I were not so keen on, but that was part of the experience. The wine was really good to wash it all down as well. Afterwards the owner came back and chatted to us about our visit to Marrakesh, once he found out we had got lost he spent the next 5 minutes telling us how to get back to our Riad. It was all above and beyond the normal levels of service and they made our lunch experience really pleasurable. I think the food is well priced, especially for what you get.

We visited cheese me because of TA comments and we found food just ok... Savoyard cuisine lovers will certainly be disappointed.. Owners are very welcoming and the place is small but cosy!

“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.
