Traditional storytelling dates back thousands of years an is an important part of the Moroccan collective memory. However this rich tradition is fading asfewer raconteurs detail rich narratives for crowds in Jema el-Fna’a square. Cafe Clock reinvigorates this tradition by bringing retired storytellers to perform alongside freshly trained apprentices of the craft. Stories in English and Arabic.

We found cafe clock on tripadvisor and it certainly didnt disappoint, this place is hidden away in old Marrakech and is quirky. The food and entertainment are superb we came here for dinner and breakfast and its not very often we do that we will certainly be returning when we are in Marrakech next.

A real gem. Bright and airy arts space with cookery classes, African drumming and storytelling. We saw the latter and it was great entertainment, refreshingly different from everywhere else. Amazing food. I had the aubergine tart. Highly recommend!

I was looking forward to this place. Very funky interiors but the lunch was such a let down. Great place to visit, maybe just for drinks. Don't bother eating the food.

We visited this restaurant as we heard about the Camel burger and knew we had to try it. We found the food to be tasty and well prepared. My wife enjoyed the Lamb burger and was happy with the overall taste. The restaurant also offers delicious smoothies for 30 DHM. Overall a good experience.

Cafe Clock was okay, the food was okay, the service was okay. After finishing my main meal I ordered a lemonade and it took 15 minutes to arrive. A bit long to pour a lemonade really. Very average cafe with nice interior.

Excellent food!!! Nice to have breakfast or lunch at this café. Not too far from the Kasbah mosque. Staff was very friendly, did not experience any problems with communicating. You can by cash and card! Very lovely place!

We had just landed in Marrakech and this is the first place we stumbled across. It was fab! Great relaxed atmosphere, delicious fresh food & drink. We even had had musical entertainment the night we were there.

This is at the end of the Kashbah Road, a nice 30 minuts walk from Jama El Fna. Went here twice for Christmas dinner and CamelBurger. Reasonable prices, good food and service and fun with the storytelling. A place mainly visited by tourists. You can change your book here. Recommend the hot ginger drink with lemon and honey.

A friend and I visited Cafe Clock after she read a blog post that recommended the restaurant and we weren't disappointed. It wasn't too difficult to find from Jemaa El Fna, and the outside is well lit up so you can see it from the street and find the entrance easily. The staff were very friendly, gave us some menus,...
