“Great meal and staff”

Lovely meal. Been a few times to Marrakech and never visited here.

Lovely meal and super staff.

Really recommended.

Portion sizes a little big, but great food and really tasty.

“Excellent Choice for Special Meal in Marrakech”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

Arrived around 6 PM on a Wednesday without reservations. Staff were gracious and efficient. View of the city was pleasant from the roof terrace. Don't hesitate to chose from the Moroccan dishes. They were excellent by our Western standards. I will certainly return.

“Nice respite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

My wife and I went here twice during our stay in Marrakech. The first time we planned to have dinner there and I went early in the day to make a reservation. They have a rooftop dining area as well as one on the ground floor courtyard. When I went in in the afternoon I had to hunt around to find someone to make a reservation. The fellow that came out to do it looked at a computer and said the rooftop was all booked up but he could get us a table on the ground floor. I made the reservation but, as I was leaving I decided to go on up and have a look at the rooftop. It was very nice and I asked a fellow at the bar up there if there were any tables for that night and he signed me right up. I went back down and cancelled the ground floor reservation. I suggest, if the folks downstairs tell you the roof is booked, go up and see for yourself.
The food was very good. There was a good selection of choices and they have a full bar. That is not easy to find there. I had been in Morocco for two weeks and had a real hankering for a cold beer.
Also, the view at night from the rooftop is wonderful.
We stopped in the next day just for a cold beer at the bar. That was wonderful too.

“A welcome break from tajines and couscous”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

This is a lovely place to stop off for lunch, nice roof terrace and the menu was nice and varied which is a treat in marrakech. My lamb cutlets could have come with some condiments, but the other vegetarian diashes my wife ordered were lovely.

Definitely take a visit.

“Good food, Great terrace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

This place is located in the old part of Marrakech.
As You leave the bustling bazaar behind you and climb up to the terrace of Cafe Arabe the scene changes completely.
The menu is a mix of the Italian and Moroccan kitchen. Both good, but a little lacking of finesse. The same goes for the service. It is very good but not top notch.
But this is a wonderful place for a break from the streets of the Medina. We had late lunch here twice in 5 days... So it's well worth a visit.
