“A good place to eat in for traditional moroccan food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We attended La Terrasse Ben Youssef on three occasions during our recent trip to Morocco, we found the restaurant excellent value for money and the staff were pleasant and courteous.

The first night we attended the restaurant, we were met by a member of staff who was asked to escort us the restaurant by Aziz, who worked at the Riad that we were staying at, needless to say we appreciated the gesture, as we had just arrived in the country and were slightly disorientated to say the least.

If your looking for a restaurant that is clean and serves good traditional Moroccan cuisine, then La Terrasse Ben Youssef is definitely a place to go... say hello to Suffiyan, he's a really nice guy.

“View from the Top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Our stop at La Terrasse came after a long morning wandering around the Medina. We needed food and refuge, a spot to recharge and enjoy local fare. Even with the temperature in the upper 80s, the rooftop terrace was pleasant and inviting. The restaurant itself is impressive with two full floors before reaching the roof. Tile work and decor are vintage and local with everything capped by the spectacular views of Marrakech. This was my first order of Pastilla, and it did not disappoint. Light and flaky with wonderful spices, it made the effort of getting up the stairs all the more worth it. We're vegetarian and the staff was friendly and accommodating in meeting that need.
While La Terrasse is not the easiest place to find in the Medina, it is worth the search. Good food, great atmosphere and right in the middle of everything.
