Cafe Arabbe is an interesting restaurant that is located inside the Medina area in Marrakech. It serves international cuisine which is perfect if you have had more than your share of Moroccan tajines. Moroccan cuisine is excellent but after six days of all sorts of tajines from chicken to beef to lamb, we felt we needed some variety. We tried their pastas and highly recommended are their four cheese ravioli, the spaghetti aglio olio, the spaghetti pomodoro. Suggested tips: 1) Stay at the rooftop terrace as this gives a romantic ambiance. 2) reserve in advance as it can get quite full 3) avoid the terrace if the forecast suggests some probabilities of rain.

We went here based on a recommendation and it was a beautiful place with great wine.
Unfortunately the pasta dish (the most expensive one) with saffron, courgettes and creme fraiche was a real disappointment. Drowning in yellow sauce I could only detect the faintest whiff of saffron and it needed an embarrassing amount of salt, pepper, chilli oil and Parmesan to even make it half decent. Left half of the portion untouched. I didn't try any other dishes so it could just have been a bad day for the chef but a real shame. Also found the service to be slow and uninterested.

On the roof terrace above the busy Souks, this is a great place to take a break. Good cocktails and international food near the center of the Medina.

Cafe Arabe is a beautiful funky bar with amazing roof terrace.

The staff are very very friendly, the atmosphere is excellent and the food and drink is very good.

I came to Marrakech with my best friend, and we felt safe and relaxed at Café Arabe. As it was so near our Riad, it became our 'local' for the length of our stay.

Definitely worth a visit.

We were recommended Cafe Arabe by our Riad, which was within 5 mins of this place. What an amazing place, beautiful inside, really relaxed. Staff are great, & the food & service was super & great value.
