Every time I visit Meknès I visit Restaurant Salma. The view from their roof terrrace is great and guarantees a wonderful dinner in the sunset with excellent Moroccan cuisine. Their card is not very big, but they what they serve is good quality.

We ate upstairs in a spacious dining room. Excellent Moroccan cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere. Although we were a group, we were spread out on cushions and chairs in the Moroccan style.

A great recommendation by our guide. The views from the third floor are amazing, the food was really delectable (salad was we had roasted lamb and chicken kebabs), the price was very reasonable. Also, the server was extra accommodating and nice.

An average meal in a huge restaurant. Our group ordered tagines for each and they were OK. Not the best we had in Morocco but not the worse either. If you happen to be in Meknes around lunch pay them a visit.

Great view from the top floor of Menes and the underground prison. Just walk from the square through the gates to the mausoleum and it's on the right hand side. Try to go to the top floor for lunch. Climbing the stairs will help your appetite

Although there were just three of us, this is clearly a spot for large tour groups, which generally means pretty lousy food. We were lucky enough to be led upstairs and away from the tour groups where we had an innocuous lunch on the nicely decorated second floor. The menu is typical of almost every Moroccan tourist-trap restaurant (tagine, pastilla,... More

While the restaurant is attractive enough and was clean, the food was tasteless. It was the only meal that we did not enjoy during our week in Morocco. In addition, the waiter and his helpers were all busy on their smart phones and uninterested in the customers.

Our driver brought us here (it seems a recurring theme in the reviews of this restaurant) but differently from the experience of many reviewers our lunch was ok: - the terrace is nice - no issue with the staff - food (vegetarian tagine, vegetarian couscous, vegetarian soup) not spectacular but abundant in size I agree that you may get better...

Based on the reviews here the restaurant seems to have improved immensely. We had very good food and service and we sat on the terrace in the sunshine overlooking the 'Christian prison'. The food was fresh and tasty and I would recommend it to anyone. Don't be put off by early reviews as something has changed.
