“First meal in the Medina! Very impressed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Must admit, we stumbled upon this place by mistake in all fairness - whilst looking for another restaurant which we could never find in true Marrakech Medina style!

We rocked up around 10pm, thinking the kitchen will be closed, but no, the guys welcome us and despite the restaurant being empty at the time, they let us sit down and we were shown menus and offered a drink.

The rooms are very nicely decorated, in true Moroccan style. We ordered two tajines and the food which was freshly prepared was absolutely delicious. Service was really good and nothing was too much of an effort.

Would certainly recommend. Brilliant food and reasonably priced.

“Easy for a quick dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Not bad little cafe in Marrakesh. Food was quite good, we were just after a light meal so it served the purpose well. The moroccan starter salad was good, and the soup was ok. Not bad for an easy meal if you don't want to go somewhere fancy.

“The best iced mint tea in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Went there every day on our recent visit to Marrakech to cool down on the roof terrace with a glass of the best iced mint tea we've ever tasted.

“Great Place to Have Break in Souk Area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

A cool café/Restaurant just edge of souk area. It should not be too difficult to find (but was not easy for me, either) – It is somewhere north-west of Souk.

There’s a price list outside and all food looked very reasonable. We first checked the rooftop terrace, which looked very nice, but we were so tired from high temperature, so needed rather cooler place - then decided to eat on the first floor.
The restaurant is decorated with Moroccan objects, which looks pretty cool. Atmosphere is easy going and menu card covers different Moroccan dishes.

We tried Tanjia (not Tajine), which is the speciality of Marrakesh. According to Lonely Planet, it was described “one serves two people”, but we ignored and took one each. Portion is not small but I do not think it will feed two, unless you are not really hungry. We ordered one with chicken and the other with beef, which was accompanied with couscous served in beautiful bowl, which could be a Japanese rice bowl. If you are not hungry, there are some Moroccan snacks or finger food, so it is surely good place to have rest, when you are tired from walking and exploring Souk or having lunch break.
By the way, tableware looked all very nice – I can feel they take care of the details in this place. The restaurant is generally very tidy and clean, the bathroom is also not exception. The service was very friendly and comfortable.

“It was O.K.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

It was glad to find such a nice place in the center of Marrakech... I was surprised with the view from terrace.
But unfortunately it was only bright thing about this restaurant...
We were on holidays but waiter was really slow, too much!
Coffee and the meals were also below expectations.
