“I do not recommend it”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

We visited the restaurant in February. Location is nice, you really have a view on the storks. But you rather have to look at those storks instead of at your food.

We both took a tajine, and we got some carrots with chicken. Afterwards we took a mint tea, but there was hardly any mint in it.

Service was very slow; 40 minutes to bring those tajines, 25 minutes to bring tea...

“with this price I really can get a tasty meal in Central London”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2011

The things were eatable I admit. but I really dont understand how they can make the price that high while still so many people comment it as very good???
I ordered a roasted meat shish thing which was served with rice and salad. the salad was good but the rice was ice-cold! I really doubt that local people do eat ice-cold rice as they even drink hot tea in hot days!!!

“Good View and Good Food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2011

We took a long way round to find this restaurant as the next day my wife pointed out to me it was very close to where we were staying in the royal kasbah,we had in fact walked past it twice but there is a lot to see and take in on your first few walks to and from Djemaa el-fna.
I had read about this restaurant in Lonely planet and they said it was worth checking out.
A few stairs to walk up to get to the rooftop and as there was a breeze blowing that day we needed the shade and did not mind the stairs.
We were attended to promptly and brought menus and some water to help cool us down.The views are very good from this high vantage point.
We had a very filling breakfast at our Riad so went for a cheese omelette each,the food was hot and very tasty and well presented.The storks were perched high up on the walls of the Saadian Tombs across the street.
Not expensive and a great view to relax before hitting the sights.

“Amazing view, delicious food and nice staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2010

We had lunch at this lovely restaurant cafè in February. We could take a sit at a table on the roof top terrace. The view from there is stunning. The food is very fresh and tasty. The service slow but good. The atmosphere is very relaxed. Prices are very very good. Absolutely worth a visit if you are looking for a cheap and tasty bite with a great view.
