We visited here twice during our stay in Marrakesh. The first time we enjoyed the beautiful sunset meal with drinks on the terrace, the second time downstairs in the plush courtyard restaurant. Both were fantastic. Our table waiter (I have his photo but not name)...was probably one of the most attentive we’ve ever had and the icing in the cake was he safeguarded my expensive camera which I left behind on my first visit. The food was great quality as was the wine. Book a sunset meal on the terrace for an unforgettable experience, but if you want to dress up and go out for a special evening head downstairs. We loved it.More

We visited this place in late March 2024. It was during a very rainy couple of days which is unusual in Marrakech, and what a pleasant experience it was. We had booked earlier that day and we weren’t disappointed. It a mix of Italian and...Moroccan influences and sells alcohol. The food was superb and the wine reasonable for Morocco. I had opted for the pastille, while others had Italian and traditional tagline. Staters were also eclectic and varied and we shared the samosa style starters. The room (downstairs) was beautifully decorated and service was excellent. I’d be happy to recommend.More

An attractive bar and restaurant in the souks of Marrakech. With a roof top restaurant/bar it provides a very professional service. Not cheap but great value.

Lovely restaurant that offers a Moroccan menu and an Italian menu. We ate here twice and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and lovely views. The pizzas have a nice thin crust as they should, the chicken Caesar salad was crisp and bright. They have a full...bar service and we enjoyed the local Casablanca beer and a lovely chilled bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. Great place for a nice lunch or dinner. Highly recommend.More

Great place for lunch, can get crowded and probably need to reserve in the evening. We thought the food was good, probably a little expensive but you are paying to eat in a nice place.

Great location, great staff, great food. Oh, and the atmosphere and views particularly at sunset were perfect. The roof terrace is open, with smoking and a non-smoking (our choice) area. The property is very smart within the busy, even hectic Medina. The table we were...allocated was nicely placed for sunset views. Menu is split into Italian and Moroccan, we kept Moroccan. Great food and wine choices, we enjoyed a nice and decently priced Viognier. Food was excellent, and for starter we should have shared one between us. I had a fish tagine which was well spiced and subtle, my wife the vegetable cous cous that was beautifully lightly spiced. We shared a saffron and orange crème brûlée which was a stunner. Smoking and non-smoking areas were enforced, which we very much appreciated. Outstandingly good, really such a pleasurable evening of location, careful service, great food and a little people watching. Just recalled the music playing is a great sound track, but they mute that in respect to the call to prayer. This in itself was so enchanting it stopped us eating to listen.More

Nice looking restaurant, food only average (hated the oily handles of the meat skewers), but it was the service that was grim, had to ask for butter 3 times, delivered main course without cutlery, which took a short while to arrive, waiter blamed previous waiter...for taking away the dirty ones (?) then despite it being 9.45 and the restaurant closing at 11pm, the staff started stripping the surrounding tables whilst we were eating, half expected a vacuum cleaner to come out! A very disappointing experience, credit goes to meet and greet guy who tried hard and succeeded in getting a Tuk tuk for us as the streets were narrow and it was raining.More

We booked two days before. Think it’s advisable. If you’re looking for something special. Then this must be on top of your list. It’s moroccan food with a selection of Italian food. I had the meat samosa style starters . My wife had a salmon...mains which was very good. I had a beef tanjia large pieces of meat which was tender and tasty. Washed down by good Moroccan wine . The place had a great vibe and you felt totally relaxed. The only negative for me was people smoking next to me while I was eating. But still you must visitMore

Excellent rooftop, laidback atmosphere, overlooking the Secret Garden, perfectly positioned for sunset. We went there for some pre-dinner drinks and definitely enjoyed it. Proper Aperol, decent wines, friendly and quick service. It worked super nicely to chill and to enjoy, without the poshy-vibes of other...rooftop bars.More

Go up to the top floor and enjoy the view over the rooftops while enjoying a glass or two of wine and some excellent food. There are 2 areas, 1 for diners and one for drinkers, but you can order food in the drinks area...too. I had a lovely half bottle of Sahara white wine and some mixed Moroccan meat pastries, perfect for a light lunch. Great service and ambience, recommended for some chill time!More
