only attracts tourists but that said I would advise just having drinks and going elsewhere for dinner as lacks local atmosphere

I went there for a beer as this is one of very vry few places in Medina where you can order alcohol, bu tthe prices were very veyr high, comparable or higher than in UK even.

Great rooftop atmosphere with friendly and attentive waiters. 40dh glasses of red wine are a huge plus, especially given the average price of alcohol in Marrkaech! The food was very high quality but extremely overpriced (70dh for Harira?!?) which is the only reason I can't give the fifth star. Nevertheless, this place is definitely worth visiting if you are in... More

Best dinner we had in our little vacations in Marrakesh. The decoration is great, the staff is very helpful , and you can have a beer or try the Moroccan red wine. We tried the Moroccan cuisine, and ordered different Tajines, but I think they also have other kinds of cuisine. The deserts are also great and the mint tea... More

The rooftop terrace is a fabulous place to unwind and forget the stress of walking the Souks. A cold drink and great food (snacks and meals) while you watch the sun go down. The staff are great too. Highly recommended.

Cafe Arabe has a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere, with comfortable seating and warmth radiating for the cool desert nights. There is an excellent variety of food on offer, both Moroccan and Italian dishes. The amount of food served up is equalled by the price, true value for money. Also, Cafe Arabe is one of the restaurants within the Medina serving... More

We stumbled upon this place by accident after getting lost in the medina (again). It was our pasta and alcohol-serving oasis. Some staff were surly and some were very nice. Overall, it was a pleasant place to get away from the chaos of the medina.

Look, accept this for what it is! Given how dry Marrakech can be it is very good place for cocktails and drinks, even if largely populated by a more affluent tourist type and wealthier Moroccans. Prices reflect it, but drinks and service is very good.

If you want a diferent dinner in marrakech , if you want to spend a night in the heart of medina, if you are tired of the sound of the city, you are in the right place. Waiters are gentle and help you to find a table also if you didn't reserve it (important) , the food is great and... More
