Café Arabe (Marrakech, Morocco)

184 Rue Mouassine
Marrakech, Morocco
Tel. 024 42 97 28

Looking for a bit of serenity from the hustle and bustle of the medina? Located within the medina is Cafe Arabe - a mix of both Italian and Moroccan cuisine. We didn't get a chance to eat any of the food at Cafe Arabe because we enjoyed the food at the Djemma el Fna so much, but we enjoyed the ambiance at the restaurant.

Walk through the main doors of the restaurant and you are greeted by a hostess, who will then walk you through the 3 levels of this restaurant.

Complimentary olives are given to all who want to sit and relax at this laid back oasis in the middle of the medina.

After having dinner at the Djemma el Fna, we had planned to lounge and relax at Cafe Arabe. After taking a look at the menu we decided to have some Moroccan whiskey (mint tea) and a honeydew smoothie.

Here is the view from the top floor of the Cafe Arabe. The restaurant designer did a fantastic job with the decor and layout of the restaurant. The top floor is a great place to lounge and relax while enjoying a few drinks.

One of the rooms on the second floor of the restaurant. Again, beautifully designed. Can't you just imagine belly dancers roaming the room?

Cafe Arabe is what you imagine much of Morocco to look like. What's ironic is that most of Morocco doesn't look like this but I like to hold onto these lasting impressions. Arriving in Marrakech a few days prior, we were unsure of how the next few days would be. Reflecting back on our trip with the scams and scares that we experienced, it was all worth it in the end.
