“interesting idea for cheesaholics”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

After all those tagines and couscous its really nice to contemplate a meal of cheeses. This relatively new place in central Marrakech delivers what it promises. We had lovely oeuf en cocotte followed by delicious tartiflete. Others were eating foie gras and steak which varies the menu a bit, but not much. They also have tapas and French cheese choices for sharing. Plus some non-cheese desserts! And good (but a bit pricey) wines.

All in all an interesting idea, well presented and a must for cheesaholics. And SO convenient for Mohammed V. We will certainly go back, though I'm not sure how often. If only they had cheddar!!!

“Excellent food and excellent service!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

This is such a cool wee restaurant in the new town. The service could not be better. We have eaten there many times as we live locally and each time we visit we are made to feel extremely welcome. The food is delicious, wine is amazing and it's reasonably priced. Definitely a must visit for any cheese lovers out there!

“Excellent restaurant”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Cheese me is just round the corner from our hotel. It's quite small and on two levels. owners Karin and Valerie are charming. We had lovely starters, and a superb cheese fondue. service was good and the food lovely. We will be going back.

“Finally, no tajine tonight :-)”
Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

Easley located just around the corner of our hotel (1 minute walk) we found Cheese Me! So happy to do so! The service is very good and the owner had time for some small talk wich was very nice to hear. Not everything was there yet because of the holiday's but the food we got was so good, we had the idea to be in France for a couple of hours. We are certainly going again! This is the kind of place where you can feel the owner is the captain, keep doing so and Cheese Me wil be on our top list to visit!

“Very far from what we expected!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

From a restaurant I expect good food, good service, pleasant and comfortable ambience at a reasonable price: None of these qualities are part of what the Cheese Me, offered to my friend and I for the dinner we had there.
The restaurant, located in a nondescript part of the new town is quite small, on two floors, is not enough heated so we had dinner wearing the coats. There isn’t an isolated space for non-smokers with the result that we had to put up with the smoke of the other guests and the one of the owner as well. Our table was on the 1st floor, between the entrance door to the kitchen and the toilet area separated by a simple curtain from the rest: Very unpleasant!

The tables are tiny and wobbly and the plastic chairs not at all comfortable. No tablecloth, but a perforated rubber placemat of dubious cleanliness and paper napkins.
When we started to choose the dishes, the owner came to tell us the specials that included an entrecote ... which, 2 minutes later, when we ordered it was not any longer available, obliging us to recompose the entire menu. My friend did not want to order cheese plates, for dietary reasons, and so we had no choice, but to order the fondue bourguignon, which is only served for a minimum of 2 people. Certainly not the dish that I wanted, but the owner did not give us, due the shortcomings of the menu, the choice to order it for one person only.
I should have refused at that point to stay, but not to take the risk of not finding a table at another restaurant, because the peak period, I decided to the contrary and... I have been completely wrong. The meat for the fondue bourguignon was certainly not fillet, some pieces were so hard that was impossible to... swallow them, and in addition, the frying oil had an unpleasant aftertaste ... In a word a disaster!
The bill? More expensive than in a good restaurant in London! The cherry on the cake was the addition of 3% for payment by credit card: Really ridiculous!

Cher monsieur, nous vous remercions de votre commentaire pour le moins suprenant.
Surprenant en effet, de choisir de passer la soirée dans un bar à vins avec une restauration spécialisée en fromages, quand on aime ni le fromage, ni les petits endroits conviviaux qui caracterisent un bar à vin.
Etrange aussi de s'emouvoir des usages d'un pays que l'on visite et qui, forcément, ne ressemble ni à Londres, ni à Paris !!! Comme 99% des établissements de Marrakech, le tabac est autorisé dans les bars, restaurants, hôtels, night club, aéroport...etc .
De même la surtaxe pour paiement VISA est d'usage courant dans les restaurants, riads, hotels au Maroc.
Concernant notre mobilier et notre equipement, tout est une affaire de goût...et manifestement nous ne partageons pas les mêmes.
Quand à la qualité de nos produits, elle est l'objet de toute notre attention, nous ne travaillons que des produits nobles, de première fraicheur et unanimement appréciés !
Nous vous rappelons que dans le cadre de notre service, nous vous avons interrogé à plusieurs reprises pour s'assurer de votre satisfaction, et qu'à aucun moment, vous n'avez émis de remarques négatives, hormis le fait que votre ami était allergique au fromage !
En conclusion, nous vous recommandons à l'avenir, de quitter les lieux d'un restaurant qui ne vous plait pas,(et meme en période de fête, nous vous aurions aidé à trouver une table dans l'un des 380 restaurants que compte Marrakech) plutot que de passer une mauvaise soirée en affirmant aux responsables que tout va bien !!!
