“Could do better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

We went here because the blackboard showing a fixed price 3 course menu seemed just the job. The starter and dessert were good, but the tagine main course was not great with raw-tasting spices with very tough chicken. (Morrocan salad to start, orange slices or crème caramel to end) But it was cheap. Roof top terrace had views of other roof top terraces, which were not great. But it was close to our riad and I didn't want to walk to the square again! Cheap enough but I wouldn't go there again. Just OK.

“Superb food, lovely staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We visited here a few times during our last trip to Marrakech. The staff were so pleasant and helpful. Food was excellent. This was an excellent place to spend our last night in Marrakeck: on the rooftop terrace.
Choices of food were excellent and so very tasty. Other reviews said service was slow. We were told that by the staff when we arrived as the food was freshly cooked. Why the necessity to hurry and have fast food. For those people there is a McDonalds in the New City!! This is ole real Marrakech with a different way and pace of life.
We can't wait to return on our next visit. Tagines were tasty and leaft you wanting more. The pastilla was just superb. Real Morrocan food served by real Morrocans.

“Service OK, food not tasty at all”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

The place itself and the service was OK, but we didn't like the food at all. Quite tasteless, dry food, chicken skewers smelled like if the meat was bad. We left almost everything on the plates. Would recommend a restaurant called "Un dejeuner a marrakesh" instead, which is just opposite - the food was so much better.

“Our Go-To Restaurant round the Corner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We stayed at the Riad Aguerzame, and this restaurant was 3 minutes away from the Riad. We chanced upon this since our first choice - Un Dejeuner a Marrakech was closed - what a pleasant surprise! Their Kefta panini was delicious, the lamb tagine was great and their pastillas was fantastic! We dined here 2x and one night opted for take out. Great service, good food!

“Nice restaurant, slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

This cafe is on a corner with a few others and has a roof terrace which we used, waiter was having a bad day i think, dropped quite a few thing and never saw him smile at all, food was good, I had Chicken and olive tagine and that is was what you got, a piece of chicken, some olives in a tagine with fresh bread, not much sauce about a table spoon full, but it was flavoursome. My wife had a tuna and cheese sandwich which she was enjoying until she found a little curly hair on the plate. - of all the places we ate in Marrakesh, this is the only one we would not go back too.
