First Review by judithi

Me encantó - Edit

Un restaurante en pleno centro de Marrakesh que te ofrece platos vegetarianos y veganos, muy buen precio y un servicio excelente. Consta de un comedor interior y dos terrazas en la parte superior. La decoración del restaurante es genial. También hacen tatuajes de henna super bonitos y a un precio razonable (en a plaza te intentar cobrar mucho más...). ¡Tenéis que ir!

Pros: Bueno, Bonito, Barato

Cons: Falta de variedad

Nice food - Edit

I only went once here for a "snack" and had the aubergine (warm) salad which was delicious. Nice atmosphere and cheap. They gave me bread and olives as a plus as well, which they often do in Morroco.

Pros: Nice looking place, Good range of vegetarian/vegan options

Cons: can't say

Perfect spot! - Edit

Wonderful vegan options, wonderful staff, wonderful henna -- I couldn't have enjoyed my experience more. The staff was helpful and kind, the artists warm and patient. I wish I could have returned one more time on my visit to Marrakech.

Pros: vegan options, friendly staff, great atmosphere

great! - Edit

Lovely balcony space and clear menu to read from that provided plenty of vegan and vegetarian dishes, I had the falafel sandwich and asked for hummus on the side, really delicious and the area that it's located in was a lovely place to explore. Also had some henna done at the end of my meal which was beautifully done. Really good value for money

Fantastic place in perfect location - Edit

We ate twice here on the very simple roof terrace. Had pumpkin pancakes (more like patties) that were scrumptious, the lentil soup, again great, salad and smoothies. Simple food, well cooked and best value that we found in Marrakech.

Pros: Tasty food, Very reasonable price, Great location

veganistisch menu - Edit

A bit hidden on the border of the Medina. Cosy terras with lots of vegan options. The Food was ok, not outstanding or creative. Small plates but fair priced. For a vegan in this town a nice place to have lunch.

Pros: vegan options, terras

Cons: not creative

Good food but nothing special - Edit

The food hear was nice- we had veggie couscous and falafel but the portions were fairly small and everything quite bland. The food was great and the staff were friendly and helpful about what was and wasn't vegan but it didn't stick out from what I have eaten elsewhere in Morrocco.

Pros: vegan knowledge , english spoken, rooftop terrace

Cons: small portions

Good clean cheap food - Edit

Nice terrace, it gets busy in the day but quiet at night. I had avocado soup which was great but not vegan. Falafels were only passable in my opinion but reasonably priced. Clean open kitchen. Seems to be European or American owned.

Pros: Plenty of choice for veggies and a mysterious vega

Cons: Apart from the meat options none

Very nice, well priced - Edit

Friendly staff, great food and quite a few vegan and vegetarian options - I recommend the avocado couscous salad and for only 40 dirham it's practically a steal. However I wouldn't recommend getting henna done here as it is much more expensive than in the square.

Pros: friendly staff, cheap

Cons: isn't totally vegetarian or vegan

bonne surprise - Edit

pour la première fois à Marrakech, nous avons trouvés ce lieu grâce à happycow. charmant endroit, un peu difficile d'accès pour nous à cause des nombreuses marches mais cela valait la peine. la petite terrasse est très agréable, le service très sympathique et la cuisine excellente. vraiment à recommander.

Excellent - Edit

We read about this place on Trip advisor and decided to check it out. Luckily! The food there is superb (truly the best fanafel I ever had) and there is a lot of choises for vegitarians that usually aren´t aviable in other maroccan restaurants. The whole atmosphere in the cafe is amazing. We also decided to get henna on our hands. The henna was all natural and appart from having it beautifully done we also recieved clear instructions on how to treat it. If you are traveling to Marrakesch I highly recomend checking it out!

Pros: Amazing food, Friendly atmosphere, Clean

LorikgordonMHAC 18 Feb 2015 - judithi, thank you so much for your generous review, and our apologies for taking so long to respond-we had a very busy week here at the cafe.

We are so pleased that you had a good experience with us, and are especially pleased that you liked the falafel. it is one of our favorite dishes too, and we know that as delicious is Moroccan food, it is in to have a bit of a change also.

We hope that we see you again!

Wishing you health, love and richness,
