Recommendations from guides, bloggers, travel authors and fellow visitors are valid -- this is The Spot in Marrakesh's medina, rest assured. Cafe Arabe's terrace was a dining highlight of our two-week country circuit, as much for the chill mood, sunset view and distinctive selections. Smoothly...professional, multilingual staff and non-package tour guests add to the charm. Order anything from the Mediterranean-Moroccan menu and be impressed, as we were. Value-priced food and Medallion cabernet sauvignon, a vin du Maroc standout.More

The food looked great in the menu but when you actually ordered items they tasted bland and lacked flavor. Food did not taste fresh.

Great food- again, a hidden gem off a side street, which opened to an oasis. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. Loved every moment of it. I would love to visit again.

Came to Café Arab during other visits to Marrakech, had noting to complain about. Today it is one of the few restaurants which is open at the medina, after Reopening of the city due to COVID-19. Ordered burrata and bruschetta, already while eating the burrata...tasted a bit funny, so i didn’t finished it. All hell broke lose in the late afternoon, bad food poisening... i get it, there are few tourists at the moment, so probably its hard to sell all products before they expire. So maybe make a smaller menu with less choice, but keep your products fresh? Very bad experience.More

We stopped off here after wondering around the souk as we fancied a beer! Lovely roof top setting where we could watch the sunset.

Spent a week in Marrakech last year and visited this restaurant 3 times as we were so impressed. Great Italian and Moroccan food, helpful staff who always managed to get us a table (the terrace is lovely but fills up fast) and a great ambience...whether you’re sat indoors or outdoors.More

The food and the service was excellent, you will be advised to book a table in high season, if you do ask for a table in the terrace area ( between May -October) and the lounge for November to end of April , the day...temperature almost 10 degrees higher than the nights, They also have some cookery classes from 9.00 am to 2.00 pm. Good experienceMore

Yes I believe they do. It’s very big place, and you have to go upstairs for best seats

Hi, as far as I can remember it’s right in the centre of the medina/souks - not really close to any roads (although we didn’t have a car so probably weren’t taking much notice). If you look on google maps you might be able... More
