We were recommended this venue by our riad manager - relatively easy to find, considering how lost we had managed to get earlier that day in the souks!! We were the only customers for an early dinner around 7pm, and were led three floors up to the open air roof terrace - great views of the surrounding area and a... More

(English-Spanish) Pastella was fried oil and not much more. Salad was bad quality rice with some vegs. I don't understand how other people can say they have eaten well. Products they use aren't good quality. Can drink something because there is nice view but do not eat there. La pastella de legumbres era aceite frito y poco más (parecido a... More

Very good place in the city center to eat and take a drink. Very good rooftop with good view of Medina streets. Good people and nice food!

A relations man noticed us at the door of the restaurant and told us about it. It's an awesome restaurant to have a panoramic view of the city and perfect sunset. The food is just normal price and normal taste (rice salad is quite good, though), but tea is very good and for its price you can serve yourself at... More

A place recommended by our riad. Food was ok, atmosphere at the top was nice, with a guitar player performing even when there was just the two of us left. Clearly yet another place meant for tourists who are not bothered by paying more, than they should. A bit of a tourist trap, however not a horrible one. If you... More

The food was just about average, nice terrace, but a bit lacking of atmosphere. Decent prices and good service.

I trusted to eat here because of the Trip Advisor recommended sticker on the front door but I believe it does not deserve this sticker. The food was sub standard, and the male waiter we had was rude. The view and the guitar music was lovely though. When it came to pay I didn't want to leave a tip because... More

I wish I had found this place earlier in my short stay in Marrakech. As I was staying at a Riad inside the old medina, much of my time was spent at the Jemaa el-Fnaa and its surrounds. One can easily tire of the hustle and bustle (especially hustle!) of the tourist traps, and so I was really pleased to... More

Had a great meal here, on the great roof terrace. We had soup and salad starters and lamb chops and Moroccan mixed-grill for mains. Food was really good and at a very reasonable price 280dhm all in including a dessert and drinks. If only the chap could actually play that guitar!!!!
