We only popped in for drinks, but that was enough to get a measure of the place. It's one of the few places within the Medina to serve alcohol and that seems to be a main attraction. Up on the terrace seemed to be the...More

Food was cold and not fully cooked , promised a lot but delivered very little, was very expensive and service was poor. 30 min wait for a coffee , overall a place best avoided.

We were recommended this restaurant by our Riad and it was a triumph. Fabulous service beautifully prepared food and a much needed glass or two of wine after the hell of the souk. A bustling ambience without the awful pressure of Marrakech, in general. One...More

Great to escape the busy streets of the medina for great views. Good atmosphere. Had a lovely tagine and cous cous dish and a few beers. Cocktails looked good too. Wasn’t quite as stylish as nomad but a good place to visit

If you're looking for authentic morrocan, then this is not the place, but frankly, sometimes when you have been in the medina a while, you dont want that! This place does a mix of italian and morroccan food, and is a lovely oasis of calm....More

I was there during a dinner cocktails from 7pm to around 11:00pm, but didn't see any one smoking sisha. But the roof deck and the courtyard are definitely smoking areas. But I think if you will call in advance, you may... More
