There are soo many great restaurants in Marrakech and this is not one of them. I went with a group and everyone was disappointed. The service was poor and the seats uncomfortable. Noisy. Just No.

Loved this place. Food and drinks (alcohol) were great and not very expensive. Lovely seats both on terrace and downstairs.

Easy to find (by Marrakesh standards). Relatively pricey but tasty cocktails. Service was slow for us but good atmosphere and would recommend.

MAKE SURE YOU BOOK A TERRACE TABLE. This is a busy restaurant in the heart of the Medina. If you're going for dinner, do yourself a favour and book a table! Otherwise there's a long wait and the terrace is worth the reservation. Great for...More

Thank you everyone. I can confirm Cafe Arabe does serve alcohol during Ramadan. Had a great meal as ever (been eating here for over 10 years) just never visited during Ramadan.

I was there during a dinner cocktails from 7pm to around 11:00pm, but didn't see any one smoking sisha. But the roof deck and the courtyard are definitely smoking areas. But I think if you will call in advance, you may... More
