“Fun spot for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

This really lively terrace restaurant looks down onto the Spice Market and is a great spot for "people watching". Staff were very friendly

“Best food yet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

We found this today by mistake. We got lost in the souks and thought we'd go up on the terrace, have a drink and get our bearings. And we're very glad we did.
We started off thinking we'd just have a drink but we ended up eating lunch and it was the best food we've had yet in Marrakech.
The lamb tagine with plums was delicious, hot, sweet and spicy and melt in your mouth. And the chicken skewers were soft and full of flavour. The mash that came with it was all creamy and devine and so were the sauce and accompanying vegetable dishes. All together with tip and drinks, and bread and olives and coffees, it came to 300 dirhams....about £24 or €30.
The location is great too. You can sit under cover in little cubicles or you can sit in the sun and use the big sun hats you find on the table to keep the sun off your face.
It was all very charming. Service was good too and the menus were in French and well translated English. We'd definitely go again.

“One of the best meals I have ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

I'd read about this restaurant in a guide book, trying to find it was the tricky part but once we had...oh my days!!
On arrival we were shown to a private cushioned cove and presented with the menu. We ordered tagine (when in Rome) and the chicken skewers. It was promptly bought over, smelled and looked delicious and tasted ever better. The atmosphere is fantastic, especially on hot days, the staff are friendly and the service is very good.
If you choose the skewers make sure you try the mash potato, it's to die for.

“Nice located”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Easy to find, not the best restaurant but why not for lunch, it was ok, but only once, we've prefered small local restaurants cheaper and more authentic.
