“End of the day indulgence!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We loved Cafe Arabe! An upmarket, exotic, deliciously comfortable, very Moroccan place to enjoy a cocktail and stay for a very pleasant dinner. The food may be a little more expensive than elsewhere but as nothing is terribly expensive in Marrakech, it certainly won't break the bank! The service was charming and efficient and even the non-alcoholic drinks were wonderful. I adored the pineapple and mint concoction!! We looked forward to relaxing on the top terrace as the sun went down after a long day of sightseeing and hard bargaining. Indeed, it was one of our favourite things in Marrakech. If you are going later for dinner you would be wise to book to avoid disappointment, as it is a popular spot.

Situated in middle of the Medina, the food is excellent and very reasonably priced too. Has an outdoor and indoor terrace. Highly recommended

“Don't eat the soup!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

Nice place but the food is not worth the money. You play for the ambiance. One of us had the traditional soup and was sick all night. If you want the soup go to Fna, booth 75. There it is freshly made every dat.

“Safe and good...very touristy but good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

Cafe Arabe is a safe, fine bet for dinner. The food is quite good, but it is definitely there for the tourists...and after several dinners at the jemma el fna that is okay! They serve wine, not something you find everywhere certainly, and good food that might be a bit pricier than what it is at the jema...but it is also quieter, and fun to look around at all the other tourists!

“Great views, relaxing but quite expensive!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

It was a great restaurant to relax after a day shopping in the souks. It was more expensive than other lunch options in Marrakech but was slightly more upmarket! We both had pasta which was really nice. Definitely recommend for a great lunch.
