This restaurant was recommended to us by the owner of the riad we were staying in, and we are so glad that it was. Such a beautiful surrounding with a laid-back atmosphere yet the staff were still very attentive, without being too over the top. The menu was a delightful change from the traditional morrocan cuisine (although you can still order this kind of food). We ordered skate, which came with mashed potato, rice and salad and a delicious tarragon and white wine sauce and the thai style fish cakes, which was a starter but was huge and was definitely more than enough for a main course. There was a little band playing lovely music which really set the mood in this tranquil little garden setting, and there was a magician who came round to your table and a fire performer (this sounds a little intense but it definitely wasnt. It was the perfect amount of entertainment and wasn't at all intrusive). This place also sold alcohol. It was about £30 for 2 people with 2 glasses of wine and soft drinks. Very reasonable for such lovely food and atmosphere.

Food was excellent, as others have already mentioned. The waiters were working at a very non-moroccan speed. Kitchen open to the public and very clean.
At our visit there were musicians, a magician and a fire-artist. A perfectly magical evening.

My friend had been telling me great things about Caravane Cafe so we decided to go for an afternoon drink to check out the cool decor. I'm so glad we did because the place is so pretty, the drinks were great, the service was so friendly and attentive and they even gave us free shooters! The restaurant we were planning to go for dinner was closed so we went back to Caravane Cafe and it was one of the best dining experiences of my life! The brilliant service, interesting decor and very tasty, well-priced food was enough to make me love this place but when we arrived we got delicious goats cheese and berry welcome tapas, there was a lovely band playing and after that there was even a magician and fire man! Such a great overall experience and I can't wait to go back!

We went as here as a group of 4 as we were recommended this restaurant. We shared two appetizers which were both very poor quality. The goats cheese starter tasted nothing like goats cheese, it was sour and definitely gone off. The other starter with chicken was very dry! Two of our main course had to be sent back as they were so tasteless and average as if we had bought them in a cheap chinese take away place. We got one other chicken dish instead of the two sent back, but again the chicken was extremely dry! At the end we got a bill which included both dishes we sent back and the one we got in return and also drinks we never received! When we inquired about the very pricy bill they made an other mistake and added EVEN MORE to it!!! Very very very disappointed with the food and service as well!!!

Hello,

This place truly sucks.
We went there as a group of 4. We really enjoyed the place until the food arrived. It was bad. We even sent it back and got an other dish that was a bit better, but it was something that I can cook. But I don't cook! Anyways it was so bad that I am gonna have night mares like mr bean after the oysters. I would avoid it or if u like the atmosphere then go for a bottle of coke. That is hard to screw up.
