Sunny afternoon, spend it on the roof terrace of this place and you will have a great view over the city and the atlas mountains. Friendly staff, good coffee, just enjoy

“Wonderful atmosphere and lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Once you get through the maze of stalls in the souk, you may be so lucky as we were to find ourselves right near the Café des Epîces. We came back each day for a relaxing, delicious meal.

“Cafe is Good, but the Terraces is excellent . . .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Cafe des Espices on Place des Espices is a great place to stop for a quick drink, rest your weary feet and watch the bustling square infront of you. It also has a clean and well-stocked loo! However, my favourite eating place in Marrakech is its sister restaurant Terraces des Espices. This is situated close to Cafe Arabe and is a rooftop restaurant with tables to sit and eat in the sun, with great views over the rooftops to the snow-capped Atlas Mountains beyond. If its chilly you park yourself in one of their little nooks and cosy up. Highly recommend having the chicken pastilla, the sardine tart and the goats cheese salad - all of which are excellent. No alcohol served here, but the fresh juices are wonderful and they make a good cappucino too. Service is excellent and the staff and friendly, helpful and a delight. Will always go back here . . .

“Best place for a snack and coffee in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

This place is simple in decor, but provides superb service, food and drink to the extent that I rate it one of the best in Marrakech. Run very efficiently by a young team with views of life on the sqaure outside. Relaxing place, well worth hunting out.

“Jemaa el-Fna watching spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Okay, honestly I cannot remember if I ate here or not (because I ate at quite a few places along the square...all delicous!). But this place stands out in my mind as having a great view of Jemaa el-Fna! For anyone, like myself, who is hesitant to take pics/video while actually down in the square, a cafe like this is what you need to seek out. Order some mint tea (mmmmm), sit, relax, listen to the noise & take all the pics you want. Enjoy Marrakech! It's an amazing place!
