Great bar, friendly staff, excellent food...and they show a bit of live sport (including rugby) from time to time. Definitely worth a visit.

I haven't had much difficulty as a coeliac at local restaurants but when I got the craving for western food it became more of a challenge. Café du Livre was a fantastic find as not only does the menu have lots of gluten free options (including gluten free pasta!) they were also happy to alter meals to make them gluten... More

This place was awesome and by far one of our favourite places in marrakech, full of young Moroccans, live music, draft beer (pints!) very reasonable prices as well. Had chicken brochettes with couscous - very tasty. The menu had a mix of western (burgers, all day breakfasts etc) and morroccan - tagine etc.

It's a great place to go and chill for a couple of hours. The staff speak perfect English and are really polite which is really welcoming when, if like me, you are struggling with the local language and you're travelling solo. The have a good selection of drinks and they do happy hour which is a bonus, not too expensive... More

Great cafe if you are craving a taste of the west. It can be a bit hard to find the first time but it is a wonderful spot to enjoy a drink (!) and the company of english speakers and the menu features some wonderful western delights like chicken wings. Only complaint is that smoking is permitted inside and that... More

Not great .... European prices yet food of poor quality. Boyfriend and I went following reviews on trip advisor and his baguette was stale and my toaster the portion offered to a child! Modern .... but lacked atmosphere - we found nicer places closer to the plaza that had seating outside, more variety and looked more appealing food and portion... More

My favorite place to go when craving amazing chicken wings. I have been here with my husband and friends on Monday evenings for the weekly quiz, which is so much fun! The atmosphere is great and the staff and the owners are very friendly.

We went here after Jardin Majorelle and it was lovely. Wide range of drinks and food available at extremely good prices. Servings were a good size as well. Live music is on from 7pm both Fri and Sat nights, as well as all the books and board games! Wish we could have stayed longer!

Thriller enthousiats, buckle up for some of the most interesting war books and thriller shelves in the city, if not the country. The menu was however a bit disapointing, but overall great chilling place and really nice staff.
