Visited le Chat on several occasions whilst working in the city of Marrakech.
The restaurant is located on a side street not far from the central railway station. From the outside it doesn't look up to much, however on entering you immediately feel like you have left Africa and have entered a 1950's downtown Paris bistro.
The owner is French Corsican and serves up excellent high standard food. The Chat has a good menu, with no chips and is well worth a visit if staying in Marrakech.
One point to toe is that on each occasion I visited it was very busy so reservations may be needed.

If you've spent more than a long weekend in Morocco you've probably had enough tagine and cous cous. Although not a cheap place to eat some of the pasta dishes are filing and priced around £6. They serve a mixture of French and Italian style meals all very tasty and home made. On our visit the staff were attentive and friendly and the owner circulates and takes an interest . They also serve wine and beer! One word of warning - the menu has limited info on the content of the dishes - if you have any intolerances ask!

Found this place on trip advisor. So glad we did. The food is absolutely out of this world! Cannot praise the food enough. Waitress, not quite so good. Service was prompt but lacked a smile. Manager/ host was excellent and passed our table twice to see that everything was ok. The restaurant was full and bustling with a nice atmosphere and unusual decor. Highly recommend!

We went to this restaurant with another couple who had apparently checked out Trip Advisor or
tips on where to go----this was definitely a good tip! Shared a couple of appetizers and then
moved on to the main course. My husband had lasagne (he said it was pretty ordinary) and
I had a mushroom risotto which was wonderful. Unfortunately, the other gentleman with us
became ill and we had to rush out of the restaurant before we would have liked. The owners
of the restaurant could not have been kinder or more helpful or sympathetic, and they have
certainly earned the reputation of being wonderful hosts. I hope to return someday and spend
more time. The decor is delilghtful, the menu interesting, the price very much in line and not
expensive. Highly recommended.
