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.

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,...

We sat outside and enjoyed a cute waitress who was snappy and fun. A bit of an American oasis, the menu includes cheeseburgers, milkshakes, and fries. Almond shake was a hit, as was mint lemonade. Music was a group of local ladies who enjoyed having a good audience. A fun spot that was a breath of fresh air for weary... More

A superb mix of traditional and modern North African music and art. Each night musicians from Morocco and a far, perform. It was packed, the night I went and everyone joined in singing and dancing. Vibrant and positive, always great fun. The food is superb too.

This restaurant was recommended to us and I am completely glad we visited. The Tapas was lovely, the staff were very friendly. The food, drinks and service was superb. They have various music nights which we were lucky enough to enjoy. It is well worth a visit.

We did a 6h cooking class and learned some of the techniques for cooking Moroccan cuisine. Overall it was a fun experience but not exactly as advertised -- we did not get to go shopping in the markets and there were several long unstructured breaks. Less teaching and more instruction and division of tasks. Still it was a good experience... More

Indulged in Camel Burgers & Tapas whilst our ears were blessed with stories of Marrakech. It's a cracking spot, with great decor blending the old and new. Traditional storytelling was captivating and the place has a really genuine vibe to it.
