This little place is just what you need after a long walk... relaxing atmosphere, cold juices and massive salads. The food is not traditional but it's inventive and fresh; certainly worth a try. If you want to escape the souks for a couple of hours, Mama Africa is well worth it; especially if you love reggae music like we do.

wonderful place we found by chance, when we got sick off tagines.

caribbean food, which was surprisingly good, also very thoughtful display. Highly recommend this play.

Also had a nice chilled feel to the restaurant, reggae music and national geo channel

Reggae cafe serving good value food. Seems to be a lot of trendy locals here. Salads massive, served in wooden bowls. Main courses served on wooden slabs. Our rice was shaped like Africa and meat / veg etc on top - fantastic presentation, totally unexpected (hope I haven't spoiled he surprise) one extra mark for presentation

Have walked past this place countless times but never got round to trying the food, it stands out as being very different from the usual spots in Gueliz and attracts an 'alternative' crowd of mostly young locals.

Finally stopped for lunch last week and will definitely be visiting more often.

A range of salads, sandwiches and main dishes with a reggae twist - also good fresh juices.
Food was better than expected for the price and portions are large - we had the fried prawn salad and a spicy chicken and rice dish.

Friendly service and relaxed reggae music in the daytime.
Sometimes have DJs playing some bass heavy dance music in the evening.
