“Lives off it's location, certainly not the food!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

The best things about this place were the helpful waiter and the smiley cashier. As to the food very unimaginative, with suspect service to boot... although waiter was very good for directions elsewhere! Many a better restaurant than this.

“Worst salad I have had in my life......”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

Ordered a herb chèvre chaud salad in this restaurant which has a lovely location close to te souks in Marrakesh. The salad arrived after about 30 minutes and consisted of iceberg lettuce, half a tomato and some soggy bread with lukewarm goats cheese on top. No fresh herbs only a flake or two of dried herbs sprinkled on the cheese. No imagination was used to create this salad. Staff less than helpful. Please find another place to eat this is a waste of money and time.

“We do not recommend this place!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

We had a quick lunch here. Location is very nice, however neither the food nor the service were good. Unfriendly staff, food was not particularly good!
Might be nice for a coffee only.

“Convenience eating”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Located on the edge of the main souk area, cafe bougainvillea is suitably placed to escape the tightly packed alleys. The highlights are location and venue; it is a pretty courtyard space - low points were the unwelcoming service and price for an average lunch. Kofta tagine (tasty), chicken & mushroom panini (disappointing) with water and coke came to 171 dhms.

“A Welcome Oasis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

A refuge from the hustle and bustle, and red hot souks. I only had tea but service was excellent and the ambience delightfully cool. I will certainly be back.
