“Beautiful couscous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

Stopped for a bite to eat after visiting the Jardin Majorelle. Much cheaper than eating in the garden cafe. Lovely friendly staff and quality food. I had the plate of the day which was couscous with vegetables and chicken - full if amazing flavour! Dad had the vegetable soup, also packed with flavour. I would recommend eating here, especially as I had a view of the Atlas Mountains between the buildings across the street.

“Great place to stop off for lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

We stopped by here for lunch after visiting Jardin Marjorelle as it was very nearby. The staff were very friendly and welcoming.The place was reasonably busy but we managed to get a table outside under the shade of the canopy and watched the world go by. The menu was a mixture of morroccan foods, salads, sandwiches, pizzas and a good selection of desserts. In the end we had a briouats starter to share, a (fairly large) pizza, a sandwich, chips and 2 drinks which came to a very reasonable 220 dh and we were stuffed!

Definitely an ideal place to stop off for lunch if you're in the area.

“Lovely place, friendly staff.”

Pause Gourmande is a great place to stop if you're near the Jardin Majorelle.

The cafe is clean, staff are friendly and the food is reasonably priced and good.

“Cooling off”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

The water sprinklers are such a good idea. They saved the day when it was too hot to walk anymore. The chicken pastilla was tasty however poor selection of ice creams

“Excellent service, excellent sorbets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

We stopped here for sorbets just after visiting Jardin Majorelle. The service was great and the little restaurant very nice. The sorbets we had there are among the best we've ever had and came at a good price. Sitting outside was pleasant, since there was protection from the sun as well as cooling vapours were sprayed at us. We also purchased a large bottle of ice cold water for a very good price there (which is not always the case, much water we purchased elsewhere was either lukewarm and/or expensive). A great place to go!
