“Bliss!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

Having reviewed this place on trip advisor before going to Marrakech, we went out of our way to find it. We were not disappointed. Cheese Me is in the New City and not the easiest place to find, but thanks to a very helpful taxi driver, found this and are so glad we did. Great place, friendly staff, food superb! Owner is a very nice man. Great to find a place in Marrakech where you can enjoy a good bottle of wine with great food. As cheese and wine lovers this place was a small piece of heaven. Bliss. A definite must if in Marrakech. :-)

“Unique dining experience...”

Very helpful and friendly staff who are eager to please. Interesting dishes (though it helps if you are keen on cheese!) Much recommended and not overpriced.

“Difficult to find, but worth the effort!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

This review is long overdue - my friend and I had a lovely dinner here in November 2012. It was difficult to find - I spent a lot of time saying to taxi drivers, "it's a restaurant called "cheese me". En Francais - "fromage moi"!

But it was worth it. The main thing is the owner. Marrakech can seem a little bit hectic and inhospitable at times, and this was somewhere calm and really welcoming. But authentic too, with lots of locals who obviously knew him. Lovely Morrocan wine, and great cheese and meat combinations. Only disappointment was we couldn't have a fondue as you have to pre-order, but fair enough. A nice alternative to tagines.

“The name says it all.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

It's just really good cheese and wine - and steak if you want. I've been there twice now - once last September with a friend visiting from the States who wanted a bit of a break from the medina tours and couscous. We went there in the evening after a couple of other expats recommended it in the afternoon and wound up sharing wine and cheese with a large table of people from Morocco, Canada, France, Australia, and the US. It was a fantastic night. This really does seem to be the type of place where you can find great people to chat with if you're looking for a bit of a break from the "traditional" Marrakech but not quite ready to hit the clubs.

The second visit was just last Friday. After a day trip to Essaouira with other friends visiting from the States, we headed to Cheese Me for a late evening cheese platter. The four of us shared a couple of bottles of wine and the round-the-world cheese platter usually intended just for 2 (now I forget the name of it). The cheese was great, with grapes and other bits of fruit. We sat outside and had a great, relaxed evening. The owner came outside later and chatted with us for a while; he's a genuinely nice, interesting guy. He recommended that we open our own Cheese Me back home...My girlfriend spent a good bit of time in the following days plotting out what her Cheese Me would look like...

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Excellent food and service. Great quality meal, we had half a baked Camembert between us with bread and before that we were brought bread with garlic cheese. Delicious. We had a bottle of red, Moroccan wine (excellent), then for our main we each had tartines. We shared a chocolate fondant for dessert (made to order). It cost us €50 all together and we were stuffed full. Give it a try. Highly recommended.
