We popped in today after following the green signs up to Scorpion House.
We were only after a couple of drinks and a look at the "panoramic view", and got chatting with the manager. Scorpion House is only newly opened, and owned by the same people as Cafe Clock in Fes.
We didn't eat, but the menu sounds tasty at a reasonable price.
Lovely setting and lovely staff.
Best of luck Scorpion House!

This place is a must! I am not sure I can describe just how amazing it is to sit on the terrace at Scorpion House. Right in front of you is the view panoramic of the hill top Moulay Idriss and to the left are mountains! I sat with my food and mint tea and watched the sunset over the city, while listening to the call to prayer. So, so magical to feel part of Moulay Idriss and relax.

The menu has a large selection that I could have chosen just about anything from and I understand that it is sourced from the local market. What I liked about the menu was that there was a number of dishes that are usually just made in a moroccan home and I hadn't seen in the 'usual' tourist restaurant. And they have spiced coffee - YUMMY!

I warn you, this is the place that you won't want to leave once you get there. Moulay Idriss itself is a gem as it is away from the tourist crowds and you hang out alongside the locals and then Scorpion House is the place to be.

It is on the way up to the view panoramic and I asked a local guide to direct me.

Serene location, incredible view and a beautiful laid-back setting - Scorpion House is what has been missing from our visits to Moulay Idriss. Add to that, great food and friendly service and they have the whole package. We'll be back - thank you!
