This restaurant was truely disappointing. The one star is for the coffee and the waiter himself would receive 5 stars. It wasn't his fault that food was extortionately overpriced and incredibly inadequate portions. Avoid the tajine at all costs.

Lovely food in a cafe next to the gardens. Simple food similar to the other restaurants but very good quality. No alcohol served.

Typical Moroccoan menu in a very cozy place. Food is ok. The terrace was closed when I came. It's focused on tourists, so don't think you'll find a Moroccoan experience. Their menus are from 80 DH to 200. Salad or harira, main dish, orange as a dessert and tea. It doesn't include the drinks.

We stopped by for a couple of drinks and ended up sharing dinner with the owners at sunset, when the Ramadan fast was over. Excellent typical mint tea, a wide range of fresh fruit juices, delicious harira... All topped with super nice & generous staff who do their best to make guests feel at home

We were looking for a place to enjoy some tea after a long walk inside and outside the medina. Cafe De La Noria seemed nice enough at first sight. We ordered the classic tajine and mint tea. Tea was very good, probably the best we had during all our staying in Morocco. Tajine was partly cold, which is a sin... More

This coffee is now a tourist trap. After talking to staff in our riad, they told us this place was famous but the management changed apparently and now it's not good anymore. We have been there the 21 of December 2015, following the lonely planet advice. Expensive prices, cold tagine with dry chicken, tea by the glass, re-heated bread from... More

We found this cafe by chance for lunch after walking in the beautiful Bou Jeloud Gardens. Should have stuck to our pre holiday research on other places. The food was average and a little pricy, and the place seemed to have seen better days and only catered for a few tourists wandering off the beaten track. The waiter was surly,... More

My cousin and I had been eating in the Medina for two days and we wanted to try something new, so we walked into the city gardens and went to this place because of a nice review in Lonely Planet. The cheapest menu was around 12 euro (at least double the price of other touristy spot and WAY more than... More

We had lunch at the cafe which offers a similar menu to most Moroccan establishemnets. The quality of the food was generally very poor (tough meat both in brochetes and with couscous) and quantities served smaller than in the other restaurants visited.
