A warm welcome awaits you in the middle of all the hussle and bussle of the Souk...

The menu is Moroccan and Italian - people...try the Moroccan its great
We went 3 times overall during a weeks stay! I can therefore vouch for the consistency of the service and the food.

The food and even the wine is good value compared to European prices.

It may be a bit on the dark side on the interior but the courtyard area is ok (perhaps dark is good for the Romance - we had a Christmas Day meal for 2 and it worked well for us).

On the roof is an open air panoramic area - get in early if you want this. I would guess that in the height of the summer the courtyard below would be cooler.

This cafe is rather dark inside. The food was good, albeit the service was a little slow. Nothing to add.

We had lunch here, twice, on the top floor terrace. The food was tasty, with both Moroccan and Western options, well cooked and presented. From our four days in Marrakech, probably the only restaurant we would recommend.

One of the few places in the Medina where alcohol is served. Don't be fooled by the entrance - it is very nice inside. It is not a place the locals would go to, but for a bit of respite it ticks the box.

Very nice restaurant in the middle of the Meidina. Went here for an evening dinner which was excellent and great value. Menu is a mixture of Italian and Moroccan dishes which a very good selection and very good service. We also went back to have lunch on the roof terrace which was excellent. Same good menu with good quality food and excellent service.
