May not look great from the outside. Once you're in it's a really lovely place. Make your way up to the terrace and experience the views. Late lunch was fab filling and took me to breakfast next morning. Great healthy food .

Great lunching spot - not as cheap as food in the square but you get a great view and listening to the call to prayer is something not to be missed! We visited 3 or 4 times in our time in Marrakech and the guy on the door (not sure of his name but always wearing a bow tie) was... More

I checked the reviews on tripadvisor before trying this place out. We sat in the roof top terrace and the views were amazing. We ordered the Chicken Pastilla, Harira, Chicken Tagine and Lamb Tagine. Cous Cous and bread were also brought to the table. The Lamb Tagine was so good that we had to order another one. Overall, the service... More

The view of the old town is amazing; we went here on our last night, saved the best till last! The food was really good and although not the cheapest it was very reasonable and excellently cooked with very special service. We were regularly talking to the doorman; he was friendly but not too pushy. We should have taken his... More

The food was good and the atmosphere felt so Moroccan with Moroccan solo guitar that live up the mood! Their Pastilla was great, and the skewers worth the price.

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

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
