Our tour guide recommended this restaurant, and it was quite good. We travel to Italy a lot, but we were surprised to find it was an Italian restaurant with that name, in Marrakech. Not what we had in mind for our last dinner in Morocco......More

One of few places in Morocco that serves alcohol, Food is just ok, Beef and lamb tahines had very plain taste - as if they were just boiled in a water and thrown into tajine for serving. Overpriced for what it is really

I wasn't disappointed, but I also wasn't impressed. I ordered the ravioli and it tasted okay, but it was a tiny portion. Just an okay experience

I love hidden restaurants that open up into an expansive, open air, dining experience and Cafe Arabe did not disappoint. We had the bar area as pictured above. The food, service and ambiance was lovely at lunch time. Great chicken tagine!

Enjoyed the rooftop experience. Food was great and the atmosphere was lovely. Service was pretty slow, they were very busy and it took a while for us to get our drinks and food

There are two restaurants here. One is open air and poolside with entertainment at one end. The other is downstairs. The night we were there a lute and a guitar player entertained. They were as memorable as the lemon dessert.

My family and I visited Cafe Arabe after hearing about its great atmosphere. Unfortunately, our experiences was just awful. Our service was less then to be desired. We could see similar experiences of others around at the same time. Our entries took approx. 45 mins...More
