“Great food, great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014

There are some restaurants here next to each other, but this is one i would recommend. Although the entrance is a bit hidden, once arrived to the rooftop you have a great view of the mosque. We were here for dinner and had the traditional pastilla which was very good.

“Amazing food in an empty restaurant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

We came here yesterday for some dinner on New Year's Eve. The place was completely empty at 20:45. I don't know if it's because they were not doing anything to celebrate new year unlike many other places or because it's in a non touristy part of Marrakech. At this point I was expecting nothing but the worst but it was too late and we were too tired and hungry to go somewhere else. I'm glad we didn't! The food was perfect! Really tasty! This is definitely on the list for regular food spots.. I just hope there's more atmosphere next time.

“Great, good value lunch in prime location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013

We went here for lunch after a visit to the Saadian Tombs and were not disappointed. The beautiful roof terrace puts you level with the nesting storks whilst giving you a good view of life in the streets below and the atmosphere was very relaxed. We were short on time as we had a flight to catch and told our waitress this before ordering. She then assured us that our meal would be prioritised in the kitchen. Beautiful olives and bread were served before our very reasonably priced and delicious meals arrived after about 10 minutes. We paid quickly at the cash point where they accepted a mixture of euros and dirhams as payment and the whole experience was very pleasurable and professional. It was particularly good to experience such a good level of service after several less than fantastic experiences in other restaurants during our stay.

“aka Stork Cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013 via mobile

This restaurant us also known as Stork, perhaps due to being the closest to the Storks' nest above Rue de la Kasbah.

I rate this number two of the group of three cafes at the north end of this street.

Don't be put off by the low key entrance, and the plain staircase. The view of the storks is worth it. We visited very late in the evening, so the cafe was almost empty, sold out of tagines. I had a lamb kebab which was very tasty and came with a large portion of salad.

Reasonably priced, clean tourist cafe.
