I came to the Carvavane last year and this return visit did not disappoint. The atmosphere and decor is fabulous and unique. This time I got a table in the Marilyn room. The waiters are great-friendly and efficient-and the live music is excellent. I recommend the asparagus and goats cheese salad for a starter and the vegetarian korma as a... More

interesting menu. a bit overpriced and overdecorated for my taste. But a good place for a romantic dinner. Personally I'd prefere Sylvestro's

We were recommended this restaurant as there are so many other restaurants all trying to get you to eat here. Most of them have pictures on the menu and I'm never a fan of eating anywhere that have to take a picture of the food you are about to eat. The Caravane cafe is nothing like the majority, it's truly... More

Of course no seating available downstair and could not enjoy the spectacle wich I was told is very nice. The menu was never explained to me and after about 10 min my drink... More

Caravane Cafe is a very nice restaurant in a traditional house just a couple of steps off one of the main streets of the Medina. The food is a mixture of French and Moroccan and they sell alcohol. The food is good, and the building is very traditional and atmospheric. There is music in the central courtyard and it can... More

Our first visit to the Caravane Club and it lived up expectations. To guarantee a bird's eye view of the action pre-book a table downstairs. Local musicians entertain diners in the courtyard accompanied later in the evening by a fire-eater. Food was good, vegetarians in our group being catered for. Leave room for dessert, they won't disappoint. In addition to... More

An entertaining experience with a number of acts going on and a good ambience. The food is nothing to write home about and seems to depend on what you choose for instance the crab gratin isn't too bad but by no means outstanding. It can be a little cramped too depending on the table you get. The people who run... More

From the moment we entered the Caravane Cafe the welcome from Daniel and the team was spot on, there is a great chilled bohemia atmosphere here, live music, fire show, magician fun, especially for the children dining out. Very jolly team who seem to enjoy what they do and give excellent service. Food is first class. Cocktails best to date... More
