I don't think I would return here. The courtyard is pretty and it was a nice break from the Medina, but the service was slow and the food was very average.

Great little place to stop for a drink. Only had a plate of chips, so cannot really comment on the food. A little oasis when touring the souks.

OK, we've stayed in Marrakesh for 2 weeks and have tried many tajines, tangiers and other Morrocan specialties, but that chicken is by far my favorite. I wish I could buy a giant jar of the preserves (the way they make it) and put it on every single dish I eat. Other than that, the place is nice, clean hideaway... More

We thought there was a nice, relaxing atmosphere. Service was good and the food very tasty. We thought it was better than some of the hotel restaurants.

Perfectly placed for a pit stop when you're shopping until you drop and with the most brilliant inlaid tables, which I covet.

... the kitchen did not quite live up to our expectation. So if you settle just for a drink in the quiet courtyard to relax, it'll be fine.

Poor quality and slow service. Vegetarian sandwich full of onions and little else. Patio not particularly nice. We left quickly.
