We went to this charming cafe to try a local specialty which we dubbed "Berber pizza". Basically a big, round bread stuffed with chopped vegetables and meat. I was a little skeptical when I first saw the slices, but it was tasty. Also affordable at 80 Dh for 3 courses, bottled water included.

We went to Nora after visiting a Gnawa music demonstration. The food was amazing and the service was impeccable. Definitely a great place to visit while in Merzouga!

We had such an extraordinary 'berber pizza' at Cafe Nora. The family who own it are just beautiful and so welcoming. Our guide, Mohammed, took us here and it was without doubt the best meal we had in Morocco. It is quietly located and warmly decorated. We wish we returned home with the recipe!

Very calm and cozy place, with warm and friendly atmosphere, great food and one very very special type of coffee​ which you should try (with different spices). This is one of the best places in this area where you feel at home.

Restaurant is located in the desert. They are very friendly, waiter even showed us kitchen(it is really clean) and apologized to us, because the table that came after us got their food first(they had reservation). Food is also very delicious, escpesialy pizza :)

I love bringing guests to this little treasure in the desert. Hassan, the owner, is so lovely and his interaction with the guests is wonderful! SItting outside, weather permitting, is wonderful...the desert air, the landscape...and then served the infamous Berber pizza. DELISH! Definitely make your way here.

The most amazing pizza you'll ever try, with a bread base and top filled with local vegetables and meat it's a classic moroccan desert meal. It's the only place that makes it and it's fresh out of the oven for anyone who comes. Highly recommended!

Thank mariasam2016
