Much has already been said about this restaurant. I find my experience pleasant. The service was good, the food was as good as it looks. We were taken there by our tour guide. The ambiance was peaceful. We got the feeling that there was no urgent sense of 'hurry up'. A nice difference AND the meal was freshly prepared. The... More

The Bougainviller has a very pleasant courtyard and has the potential to be a great restaurant, however the overall experience was distictly average. The food was edible but pretty bland. Service was reluctant, our table was not wiped down from a previous setting, bread was only provided after it was requested, staff just didn’t seem bothered.

We were in Marrakesh for two days and we ate here twice. Once for dinner and once for lunch. The food is good and you can get traditional Moroccan food like a Tagine or you can also get a pizza. And the best part is you can use your credit card. So many of the restaurants take cash only and... More

good place to get a quick snack. they are fast, offer more western options like paninis and are open later than most other places in the area. good for kids. mediocre customer service- the servers are not welcoming.

Children had panini which wasn't all that great. Apparently Edam and mozzarella, though they weren't keen. And tuna sandwich was rather hard. But the beef brochettes were good and the chicken pastilla was lovely! We all sat in the wonderful covered shady quiet area to the side of the garden and it felt wonderfully relaxing away from the bustle of... More

Great spot for a lunch and a capuchino... they truly are the best. The staff is pretty fast with getting your order and the food comes hot and fast.

A little oasis in the middle of the Soulks. Furnishings a little tired, staff friendly and food good.

This is the perfect place to stop & unwind away from the clamour & heat of the souk! The outside courtyard is attractively designed with tables,chairs & a feature fountain. Our coffees were reasonably priced & internet was freely available too.

I don't think I would return here. The courtyard is pretty and it was a nice break from the Medina, but the service was slow and the food was very average.
