“Miss this restaurant at your peril”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

whilst the name suggests this might be a cheese only cafe or similar it is actually a wonderful find in the heart of gueliz. The owners have a fully fledged french restaurant here, offering something for everyone and lovely quality. The wines are well chosen and everything was really good value for money. Highly recommended.

“A pleasant evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Our visit to "Cheese me" was the result of a chance reading of a note in an "Trip Advisor" comment on another hotel in Marrakech. Desperate for a break from Tanjines we looked up the restaurant and made our visit. Well worth the trip and we were completely satisfied. A good range of wines and a perfect selection of meals to suit all occasions and meal times - midday or evenings
Host is very interesting to talk to and the service superb

“Lovely warm welcome and fantasic food!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

We saw this place on tripadvisor while looking for places to eat when on holiday, this stuck out as a little different that we could try while in Morocco. Its a super little place with a nice and relaxed atmosphere and very warm welcoming hosts. The food was really good and for cheese lovers it is a dream but the chips and breads where fantastic too and there ice creams and sorbets where super. Had a great time and was given a cab number by the owner to stop me getting ripped off by the cab drivers there!!!! Highly recommend

“Me and Cheese Loved Each Other-LaTasha Marie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

What a wonderful experience! I did a little research and wanted something quite different from the 'Moroccan food experience' I have tasted throughout my trip through Morocco...So, I chose "Cheese Me".
Chosen specifically for the cuisine, newness and freshness to the 'New City' and I wanted a place that was small, intimate yet Fun and with a lot of Character! I received it here from the Moment we stepped our soles into that restaurant!
I was greeted quickly and arrangements were made for me and my colleague, which we also made reservations as well just in case. The hostess was a nice young man and set everything up. Lo and behold the CO was there and he brought the menu of the day to the top floor which was presented on a sleek black slate chalkboard and written upon it was the house specials from yummy cheeses, wines, and house desserts. Very eclectic! As well as the wine, he said we could sample all that we wanted until we found the one we were looking for, not a problem. The hospitality floored me and I felt comfortable, he even inquired about the temperature at the top floor which we had a full overlook to the street outside.
First on the house we were presented a cheese dip with bread. This cheese spread with herbs, might I add, was delicate, rich and smooth with so much flavor! We kept the dip and used it for our fries :-)
By the way FRIES were unique and I have never experienced fries that were seasoned with olives which gives them a rich saltiness leaving no need to add salt, the fries were cut fresh and fried golden. The burger was another experience as well, and I was pleased. The make up of the burger is different from your 'traditional' ground beef yet it is very moist and flavorful. Dessert was delectable with a homemade chocolate cake (molten lava cake) when cut into flowed of chocolate!!! How AMAZING! It was Rich, it was Moist, it was prepared and presented perfectly with my liking of vanilla ice cream on the side.

The atmosphere is inviting, it is warm, energetic, and a little tantalizing from the lighting and decor...The perfect place to have great cocktail, a glass of wine and Cheese of course! The restaurant is very modern with complimenting decor, clean lines yet a little flair and color play which gives it this smooth feel...

Cheese Me is NOT your ordinary bar, or little hideaway restaurant. Cheese Me is simply, "You, your guest(s), cheese, great ambiance and fun!!"
Karim, the CO, is a wonderful man and cares about the establishment and the guests. His personality is invigorating and addictive.
This place, Cheese Me, is not to be missed, or overlooked or even skipped over during your trip! This will be a once in a lifetime experience and feel for all you foodies :-)

Take it from me, you will fall in LOVE with Something there, and you just have to go to figure out what.
