“Nice for a cola and ice cream but i wouldn't dine here”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

It's a great place to call in for a cola or a tea and to watch life go by over Jamma El Fna. It's a good spot for an ice cream desert too. One downer as a non smoker is the acceptance of smoking in the dining area but it's the norm here so, for now at least, the non smokers just have to lump it.

“Good food and great views”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

We ate lunch here on our last day in Marrakech - a very decent pizza and a good mixed salad with cous cous, hummus and avocado, but best of all were the views over the Jemaa El Fna.

“Nice view, the rest is just western.”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

As most of the restaurants on the main square it is very western (pizzas on the menu!). The best thing is the view, which is really good! But then again the food is nothing special. This would not be one of the places i would recommend. It is not bad, just nothing special.

“Best seat in Marrakech”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Food is okay, passable pizza, and reasonably priced. Service is okay too. But this cafe is exceptional. The rooftop terrace affords fantastic views over Jmaa el Fna square. Sitting, while snacking, watching the sun set and the activity in the square intensify is truly a memorable experience. Go for the best seat in Marrakech.

“better than the Cafe de France”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

what makes this place is the location - lively atmosphere and ok food. Preferred this place to Cafe de France as at least there was not a fixed menu so an element of choice possible.

Be prepared to be moved from your table to another as they try to cater for various size groups - no particular subtlety to this.

Pizza was ok - service not particularly speedy
