Seems like a real tourist trap from the outside but once inside, turns out it's actually very relaxed and pleasant. Great staff, a good Campari spritz, beautiful view and clean toilets (always a way to judge a place). Perhaps a bit pricey and when we...More

Very welcoming and friendly cafe, the staff especially. The roof terrace is worth a visit and had a good lunch menu.

There are soo many great restaurants in Marrakech and this is not one of them. I went with a group and everyone was disappointed. The service was poor and the seats uncomfortable. Noisy. Just No.

Loved this place. Food and drinks (alcohol) were great and not very expensive. Lovely seats both on terrace and downstairs.

What can I say except that the restaurant it tucked away in the heart of the Souk making it a nightmare to find without internet signal as the locals will never point you in the right direction unless you have bought something from their stalls...More

Easy to find (by Marrakesh standards). Relatively pricey but tasty cocktails. Service was slow for us but good atmosphere and would recommend.

Visited here after 5 years, glad to see it's still the lovely relaxing place that I remember. Food is good, and not too expensive, and it has a lovely atmosphere about the place. We like to just sit and chill with a cool drink, or...More

Thank you everyone. I can confirm Cafe Arabe does serve alcohol during Ramadan. Had a great meal as ever (been eating here for over 10 years) just never visited during Ramadan.

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
