My husband and I have just eaten lunch here. The lunch menu outside states 150dh, but once sat down your menu says 200dh. Price aside, as this is still a good price, the first course of salad was lovely and very filling. We had Couscous Marocain and I'm afraid I found this bland and tasteless. Dessert - fruits of the...

My girlfriend and I loved this place. Amazing chilled rooftop over looking the palace and the city. Great place to watch the sun go down. Special mention to Hamza who was such a nice waiter.

We read about this place in the guide book and the place does not dispoint architecturally, but the menu was the basic you find in most restaurants but a little more expensive, but excelent service

Found this restaurant by chance when shopping in the souk. It's so beautiful inside, like Ali babas cave. We had lunch on the roof terrace as it was so warm. The waiter couldn't do enough for us even setting up a big fan so we could keep cool. He even served our bottles of beer in ice! The food was... More

This restaurant was recommend by Hicham and I have no regrets. The restaurant has three floors and roof top. Beautiful for layout for any formal function. We dine on the roof which was beautiful with large seating area with the beautiful sunshine. We were serve with Moroccan mint tea and Moroccan salad. Our main dish was 'Pastille de fetes with...

Just happened to see the terrace of this restaurant when leaving the Bahia palace and since we were ready to eat entered the restaurant. Very beautiful looking place, almost an attraction it itself. However we moved up to the second floor, where some shade was provided by large sunshades and sat down to order. Very local food and very good.... More

Having seen a promising review of this place in the Rough Guide Marrakech - we decided to give it a go. Upon entering, the interior of the building is indeed splendid - unfortunately, the terrace restaurant was far less so. Upon arrival, we met one grumbling couple exiting and another couple having a drink on a barren terrace area that... More

When walking in to the restaurant a fairy tail of 1001 nights unfolds - amazing interior and lay-out! Walking all the way to the roof brought us through a beautiful hallways and stairs, and up there was a nice mix of sun and shade so we could find the perfect spot to relax and have a bite. The food served... More

I didn't eat here but only came in for a drink. The cocktail was weak so I'd recommend asking for more. Keep in mind, many locals don't imbibe so this isn't exactly their fault. Paying was a little weird. I waited quite some time for by cheque. The one bonus is they used fresh juice. This makes a world of... More
