Cafe Arabe, in the heart of the Medina is a great find which was recommended to us by Moroccan friends. The food is great and a good fusion of Italian & Moroccan. Try the Moroccan red wines as they’re delicious! We are in the top...More

My friend and I went here twice and we had a great experience both times. We sat on the terrace which was gorgeous and had a nice meal. It was nice to find a good restaurant so close to the main square.

Nice place to drop by for a wine, staff are nice too. We didn’t try the food so can’t comment on that.

We had a recommendation to visit here. After lots of tagine I was happy to have some pasta, although Moroccan dishes were also on the menu. Local wine excellent. You may need to book

Found this place while going to the secret gardens. It has great ambience. Worth going with friends or family or even alone. Staff is very friendly and Café is excellent. The location is not great but don’t let that a be a turn off.

Medium prized, food was good, and a good selection of wine. Classy place with friendly staff. Pastille de Poulet was soooo good!

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
