Roundly ignored by staff. Even when we asked repeatedly for service. Rude attitude. Ordered from the Italian menu. Lasagne was days old. Tasted stale. Tasted like it had been defrosted from the freezer. View of a construction site from the terrace.

The restaurant's rooftop provided a spectacular view of Marrakech. But even that was topped by the incredible menu and delicious dinner that was picture perfect.

The food at this restaurant is standard Moroccan fare - couscous, tajine etc. The service for us was seriously lacking. The server needed to be reminded multiple times on things we had asked for. They seemed to be more attentive to larger parties than smaller tables like the two of us. Not a place I would visit again or recommend.

Great restaurant. Location is relatively central, not far from Djemaa el Fna with a great rooftop terrace and a cool ambience. Food was good and relatively well proved and some nice drinks. Really nothing to complain about.

This cafe was near our Riad and a great place for supper after a day of exploring. The food is good, we ate mostly Italian and the service is good. All the waiters seem to know some English

The dinner I ate here was one of the most enjoyable experiences I had while in Marrakech. I only wish my wife would have been along as the hotel and restaurant are incredibly romantic. The food was artfully presented and the flavors memorable. The pool and lights and music made the evening. Cafe Arabe is not inexpensive, but it is... More

We went for dinner and were blown away by how beautiful it is inside. Amazing service and a great atmosphere. Olives and bread were brought to our table for free nibles whilst we decided on what to eat. To have a change from traditional food we opted for pasta dishes. Mum had the carbonara and I have the cannelloni with... More

Cafe Arabe is an absolute must during your stay in Marrakech, but mostly for its history and not for quality offered. It is the typical place to visit just to say you have been there; nothing more. The staff (especially in the terrace) is not particularly friendly nor attentive, the food quality is very negligible and the cleanliness leaves much... More

We were recommended this place for supper and we were not disappointed. The menu was good, food great and the staff were excellent. We were so impressed we went back for the lunch the following day.
