“Nice little find - Modern Marrakech”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Although not fine dining it is the sort of cafe equivilant
Situated in the modern part of Marrakech it seems to be a 'place to be seen' by the more international residents of the city
The food was very nice and we really enjoyed it.
The staff were friendly though no-one had much grasp of English (but it's why should they) so we managed in broken French
Def modern and chic
We sat outside with the designer clothes and sunglasses brigade!
Not the cheapest place to eat but nice to sit outside and pass an hour or so
We would return but so like the old town better

“Lemonmerengue !!! :)”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

On a hot day in Marrakech we decided to go explore the new city.
On route we found Cafe 16, cozy nestled on the square Place du 16 Novembre. We found a table outside for lunch and were cooled down by the sprinklers in the sunscreens... nice!
Service was very good, people were very helpful and friendly.
The food was delicious! I had the fish carpaccio and it was enough for me, though i craved a dessert afterwards ;) That dessert was soooo yummy!!! Would order it for homedelivery if even possible :)

“A must go to bar!!! This needs another Excellence Award”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Set in a modern block in Gedijes about 2 km from centre this is a must to go to. French run and here the professional French working in Marrakesh go to unwind and have drinks, along with affluent Moroccans. There is a special "After Work Formula" served between 6 and 8 pm, which is either 5 x 25 cl beer or a bottle of Red, White, Rose or Grey Wine. Yes, its not spelling mistake there is an actual Saharan Wine that is light grey and very flowery, but must be drank very cold. this comes with 16 very large canapés all fresh and tasty which the chef prepares individually for each guest. The whole deal is approx 15 GBP without tip. This bar has been awarded a Trip Advisor Excellence award 2013 and I think it should get another for 2014! The staff are so very busy as there is also a large outside seating area. You can drink alcohol inside and not outside as it is the law of the country, however the windows are clear so everyone can see you drinking! Smoking is permitted inside also. There is a large delectable range of pastries on sale too. The staff are so amazingly friendly, even as they work their socks off in this busy place. They are always happy and smiling, especially "Surlinaime" who was an absolute pleasure to be served by. He needs an individual award just for himself.

“Good food and beverage selection”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

The decor is simple, nothing fancy.
They serve no brainer food, I had a huge burger and verbena tea infusion.
Their selection of beverages is very interesting; it ranges from Tchaba teas to Alcoholic drinks so there is something for every taste.
Definitely a good meeting place since it's located in the plaza so each time we wanted to meet, we'd say: "in front of Café 16".
