First Review by Cory

The best place to eat in Marrakech! - Edit

Really incredible vegan set menu. Beautiful filo parcel with roasted veg underneath. Lovely vegan sweets afterwards. Seems to be run my a group of women which is awesome! Really nice space, quiet and calm. The best place to eat in Marrakech!

Pros: Everything

Cons: Only in Marrakech :'(

greasy and tasteless- deserves no stars - Edit

The reviews were good but the fish I ordered was terrible. I took the feuilleté with dates and courgettes and tomato concassé- the actual feuilleté was just totally greasy- I left most of it- the filling was totally greasy and tasteless- the only nice thing on the plate was the green sauce which I think was made from spinach. As a vegan chef I know I expect a lot from a vegan restaurant but this was really not worth the money. I also took a beetroot juice which was ok but did bait Tatar enough of beetroot and had no noticeable ginger in it either.

Pros: none

Cons: terrible food

Best food - Edit

I have gone back four times to this place because the food was so good and tasty. In particular the veggie burger which is nothing like any veggie burger I had before, and it was the best I have ever had. I tried also the rice with lentils and the vegan spring rolls, and they were delicious. The only negative thing was that the spring rolls were a bit too greasy, but the food taste fantastic. It is not far away from the Jemaa and you definitely know you are getting vegan/vegetarian food. My boyfriend had a vegetable tajine on the Jemaa and it tasted of lamb....
Forgot to say the portions are very generous too!

Lovely find - Edit

This was a great find just off the main square. We had the vegetarian burgers which were both delicious and filling, not to mention a good price! With cooling juices and hidden seating areas we would definitely recommend for a non fussy, quick meal.

Pros: Good value , Quiet , Hearty portions

Cons: Do not take card

Fantastic - Edit

We both ordered the veggie burger with homemade chips. It was fantastic - such wonderful flavours.

I don't think this place is overpriced and previous reviews are unfair. It's a small independent vegetarian/vegan ONLY cafe hidden away on a tiny street that needs to sustain itself. It won't pull the usual tourists other venues will and the prices need to reflect that.

Pros: Fabulous veggie burger, lovely staff, good atmosphere

Cons: none

Cooking class at Earth Cafe - Edit

I found the Earth Cafe by mistake yesterday and curiously went in. On their wall they had a note that they offered cooking classes. I arranged one for today and enjoyed it very much. I had to select a dish from their regular menu and then was given an apron and asked to join in the kitchen and cook my own meal. I was given instructions and had lots of fun. We spoke French, English, and with hands and smiles as my French and my teachers English were very basic. I made the rice noodles with veggies and my husband made the filo with pumpkin for himself. Both were very tasty.
The only thing that can be improved: ask cooking school guests to wash their hands before joining in the kitchen.

Pros: lovely staff, great quiet location just off the souk noise

So So - Edit

We got here late one night and it was very dimly lit and the whole place looked quite dirty. It was also freezing cold. The food was good but a little limited.

Pros: Tasty food, Nice range of smoothies

Cons: Cold & dirty

Sorry, but not really worth it - Edit

Charming people, nice place, but very overpriced for what it is
Madame has the burger, which she liked; I had the filo tart with zucchini and it wasn't all that
With 2 cups of poor coffee, this came to 180dh, which is a lot of money for not that much

Pros: Peaceful

Cons: Overpriced, Poor coffee

overpriced - Edit

Food was alright but nothing special. Dishes cost 70MAD each and weren't any larger than other restaurants offering meals for 30 MAD. Too much pesto used (honestly it was in all 3 dishes!) and although this place is vegetarian/vegan there was no protein in any of the dishes.
Juices were really good, I had a beetroot, ginger and orange which was delicious.

Dont go there - Edit

The food they served me was literally moldy... I mean really its a shame. I think the vegetarian approach is just made to get the tourists easily. The prices are way tooo high for the location... and for the food they serve. It must be ok when the meal they serve is fresh, unfortunately mine was made four days ago and obviously kept in a not so cool place. Avoid it if you dont wanna get sick !

Pros: Location, Vegan options, Place

Cons: Expensive, Food not good, Not fresh

Earth Cafe - Edit

Cons: Expensive, No variety

Many dishes, same content - Edit

I tried three different dishes which all had essentially the same ingredients. There is no wifi and the staff does not speak a whole lot of English. Prices were not particularly cheap.

Vegan tourist trap - Edit

I don't understand how this restaurant previously had such good reviews. I se that they have opened another location so maybe the quality decreased since then.

It is overpriced for Marrakesh standards. My assumption is that it is meant to lure vegan tourists willing to spend more money to enjoy vegan food other than the local salads and tagines.

The portions are huge, which is a pity because the food is simply not good: it all tastes the same and the seasonings do not work together.

Seasonal root vegetables are seasoned with rosemary, which is then assembled either with rice, pasta, filo pastry etc... all sprinkled with soy sauce. So it really does not matter what dish you order because it will all taste the same, and not well.

I understand that one might be tired of eating Moroccan food, but this places feels like it's there to attract tourists with the idea of veggie and vegan food, without really caring for the food, the clients, or the restaurant (which in itself is in a very bad shape).

Better go to Clock Cafe or to any other local place which can ensure only vegetable ingredients were used...

Expensive and disappointing - Edit

I don't know how on earth this place got four stars. I had the worst and most expensive food there since I'm in Marrakesh. There's not enough lights in this place, you have to climb stairs in the dark. Toilet needs renovation and proper cleaning, toilet seat was lying on the floor. Seating was very uncomfortable, a worn out sofa with a table too low. Waiter was unfriendly. There is no menu, you have to go downstairs, there it's written on a mirror. I had the burger, which consisted of two small very soft and tasteless paddies. Underneath a quarter of a salad leaf and some carrots could be found, no side dish, no sauce. Price is off the roof - 7 Euro. I also had carrot juice, which was tasty, but also expensive. A small glass costs 2 Euro. Cafe Earth won't see me again.

Cons: Shabby Interior, Food lacks taste, Outrageous prices

Veggie/Vegan in Marrakech - Edit

This vegetarian restaurant offers a nice change from the usual vegetarian choices in Marrakech. I had a filo pastry entree that I enjoyed. I liked the vegetable tajines I've had in Morocco, but this place is a welcome option, with many vegan choices. The restaurant is pleasant, but the seating leaves little knee room.

very good - Edit

Its the only pure veg restaurant in marrakesh. They have a kind of orient - asian - fusion - cuisine, which is very unique and tasty. A littel pricy, but a must for vegetarians.

Veg-Friendly Variety! - Edit

Ate here once while in Marrakech and was very pleased with my dining experience. It's a basic restaurant nothing fancy. The meal was on the pricey side for the area but I ordered a lot of food and it was totally worth it to have some new options filled with lots of veggies! We were thrilled to have around 5 vegan options to choose from rather than the usual cous cous or tangine options available in most of Morocco. Thanks to some wayfinding signs, the restaurant was surprisingly easy to find in a little alley not too far from the main square. I ordered a juice, the spring rolls and the veggie rice noodles and all were quite delicious. I found the portions to be large. They only take cash for payment.

Pros: Vegan Options

clean vegan food - Edit

The food was very good. Gluten free options as well. They have juices. Toilette was clean although we came after rush hour.
Prices are for tourists but it's a popular place full of customers. The vegan revolution is coming to Marrakesh :)
We will return this week to eat the rest of the menu.

Cons: no view, you are inside a small house

Why on Earth Not Go Here - Edit

A small cafe which has about 50% veggie /50% vegan menu. Agree with the comments that the decor has seen somewhat better days, but it still felt clean and made for a relaxing environment.
Food was a tasty change from repeated tagines elsewhere. Not the most amazing food you'll have had, but good all the same.
Staff were friendly, the location was really useful being so central and overall really good value.

Pros: Fresh food, Good value

Cons: Decor a little tired

The best vegan food in Marrakech! - Edit

We were in Marrakech for 4 days, and the 2 Earth Cafe locations were amazing. They were a welcome sanctuary from the bustle of the Old Town, and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Tasty, whole food and all vegan items very clearly marked. It was the only place we trusted to get 100% vegan food while in the city, so we went back every day!
A simple, peaceful setting and great value for money too.

Pros: Great tasting food, central location, well-priced

Earth Cafe - Edit

We also went in January 2014.

We ate there twice on consecutive days and had different meals at each.

The food was great, yes the place had seen better days, but a lot of Marrakech has too. The staff were friendly and the café was quite heavily patronised when we got there, almost to the extent that we had to wait for a seat. Once we were seated, we ordered and received our food about 15 minutes later. The food was well cooked and tasty, but was lacking in protein.

Pros: Tasty good quality food, Friendly staff

Cons: Where is the protein?

Wonderful place - Edit

We visited Morocco in January 2014 and generally we did not like it too much, however places like Earth Cafe were great to dine in :) It is not so hard to find (bear in mind that there are no street names in most places in Morocco) and once we entered -> everything was lovely :)
The seating area, the friendly staff, the menu and the prices too. We visited twice while in Marrakech and we were not disappointed.
This place is definitely worth a visit.

Pros: Easy to find, Menu options, Friendly staff

Vegan and veg meals - Edit

Went here on our first night in Morocco. The restaurant was pretty small and we were the only customers. We got caught in a thunderstorm on the way there, and had a nice view looking out onto the streets getting rained on. There was probably a roof terrace as well as the small room we ate in.

They had a small menu of approx 8 dishes which are clearly labelled as either vegan or vegetarian. The food is more Asian influenced, not Moroccan, so stir fries and rice, and also some pie/pastry items.
The food was nice, and it was good to have a clear menu, food but nothing special.
Price was reasonable, although there are probably cheaper options (but not veg restaurants)

Pros: Vegan and veg options clearly labelled, Healthy and pleasant food

Cons: Not particularly exciting!

Disappointing - Edit

Having been in Morocco for over 6 weeks we were really looking forward to a vege-vegan place to eat. It is a challenge for vegetarians and vegans with tagines and couscous only. We chose Rice Noodles with season veges, fresh herbs, soy etc as well as vege burger coconut, ginger, mango sauce. There was no evidence of ginger nor fresh herbs, tasted a little like dried thyme which overpowered the tastes or lack of. Also the veges in our opinion did not have much taste. Overall our feeling was that this restaurant kitchen does not really have an interest in what they are doing. Staff did not ask about the food. Another interesting sideline was that they had "REAL LEATHER WALLETS" for sale, contrary philosophically for people who are concerned about animal suffering. One visit was sufficient.

Pros: Vegetarian-Vegan

Cons: Tasteless Food, Leather Goods for Sale

Tasty break from typical tajines - Edit

After having been in Morocco for a couple of weeks it was great to have something other than vegetable tajines! The cafe ambiance is very colourful and bright, which we really liked. We ordered the burger and the spring rolls. They were both very tasty, although quite similar to one another since they essentially contained the same ingredients.

Pros: Bright, Tasty

Cons: Similar flavour across menu
