It is worth a visit. The pictures are beautiful and there is history from Marrakech to be learned. The rooftop is one of the best I've seen around here. Free wi-fi. :)

Interesting to see the resent history in pictures, peoples and places. Reasonably priced and pleasant little restaurant right at the top with excellent views over the city. Admission ticket good for a couple of days so useful if just for clean toilets.
