“good chef, but waiter seems a fraud”
Reviewed 13 August 2013 via mobile

Well decorated, good city views from the rooftop. Food is very tasty. The disappointment comes afterward: the menus were listed as 130 dirham/13 euro and 150 dirham/15 euro...two plus one makes 410 diham. on the bill was 510. "New exchange rates apply" the waiter said. Apart from the fixed list price, these rates make no sense. After a phonecall with the manager, the bill was changed. Smelled like a tourist trap.

“Cannot order what is on the menu: only fixed menus available”
Reviewed 21 July 2013 via mobile

The menu set outside the restaurant looked nice and prices were ok. But once we had climbed up to their really nice terrace we were given another menu. Staff said only the set menu (160 dirhams per person) was available. Disappointing and not recommendable. We left

“A good find in Marrakech”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

We found this restaurant by chance and the food was so plentiful, delicious and reasonably priced that we ate there 5 times during our weeks holiday. The terrace is really lovely and gives great views over the city. We felt very welcome there.

“Watch as much as you can see!”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

One of the best qualty/price restaurant in Marrakech. Good service, nice people wonderful view all over Marrakech. With 130 dirhams I tasted a true and well cooked typical menu. And a dessert that has been classified in my top 20 ever. The weather was pretty good so I never stayed inside (3 floors of restaurant before terrasse). They know te importance of a good review on tripadvisor and do their best to earn it. If you are in a spiritual mood, over the terrasse you can ear all the Muezzins' calling together for prayer. Really touching.

“Great food and amazing view”
Reviewed 11 June 2013 via mobile

As above, food really nice, probably the best we've tried in our week long stay! Don't be put off by the small entrance, this is a tardis of a place! The service was a bit slow but the waitress was really friendly and helpful.My family and i got there quite late so we had the terrace for ourselves and made the most of the 360 degree view. We would recommend this place to anyone , in fact a couple came in just as we were leaving and I had to stop and tell them that they had made the right choice.
