“good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

a charming courtyard setting plus a roof terrace.

good local food sensibly priced for Europeans but a little pricey by local standards.

Staff a little cold but worth a visit

“Nice place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

This is a nice place just off the souks. We sat down in the restaurant, in the courtyard of the riad and it was cozy. Good morrocan/italian food. Generous portionsizes. Can recommend a visit. Although it's full of tourists we would go back.

“Nice view from the terrace.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

If you find it in the souks, visit it for coffee, lunch, dinner or a drink after sunset. Nice music and pleasant space. Morrokean style and architecture. We had a bottle of wine seating at the terrace! The staff need to improve. People makes the difference.

“Cafe Arabe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Not cheap but great food and location.
Lovely service, too.
You have to book but worth the effort.
Very comfortable and European but that's not a bad thing after 4 days in a Riad.

“TOO Much Cigarette Smoke”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

food was just average. Cigarette smoke was over-whelming even though Marrakech has laws about not smoking in restaurants. Cafe Arabe does not enforce it. We were happy to leave.
