“Cool reggae cafe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Mama Africa is just about the most relaxed cafe I have ever visited. There's good reggae music playing and very interesting artwork. The food is an interesting mix...salads, wok dishes and sandwiches, all at VERY affordable prices. Wait staff can be a little show, but are friendly and attentive to your requests. The food is yummy, especially the salads which are served in big olive wood bowls. This is a great place for an affordable and filling lunch.

“A "cool" cafe for lunch or dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Mama Afrika is a great place for lunch or dinner. Prices range from 80 to 150 Dirhams for a main course and the portions are both generous and nicely presented, some on wooden platters. Their mixed fruit cocktails are delicious. The cafe prides itself on being quite African in it's decor and is comfortable both inside and out on the pavement. They play reggae music and the staff are eyecatching in being a wee bit different than the "usual" Moroccan look (deadlocks and funky clothes). Attentive and friendly waiters make for a relaxing and enjoyable meal in Gueliz just off Avenue Mohammed 5, down the same street as the Diamont Noir club.
