The whole place smelled like cat urine and there is no atmosphere. Our tour guide led us here so he could get a free meal and we were too worn out to fight him on it. Big mistake. The tagine meat was rubber and the cous cous dry and flavorless. They have a terrace overlooking the square. So what? Go... More

Lovely view of the Hadeem square and surrounding areas of Menes. Food and drinks are just average. It's all about the view especially at sunset.

The vegetable Tagine was tiny and the price hire. It was not cooked in the tagine, but boiled vegetables throw into a tagine dish to be serve red. Morocco continues to do this to tourists thinking we have never had a proper tagine where the food is caramelized and roasted. I told them so and was offered a free meal... More

This place totally made my stay in Meknes! I came here for a week to study the hammams of Meknes and I spent everyday here using the wifi and typing up my research. The whole waitstaff was so helpful they escorted me to the best hammams, showed me around the old medina, and prepared me food for when I came... More

This is a nicely located restaurant with a great view of Place Lahdime. Unfortunately it does not looks very clean, cats walking around and under the table as well as chairs and tables left at corners give a really bad impression. Food was regular and bathrooms not so good and with a lady asking for money on the outside (what... More

Aside from the nice view this place offers little else. The brochettes were cooked to a crisp and nearly inedible yet served anyway. If you go, don't eat here.

When my daughter said, "that's not happening" I thought she was being squeamish. However, I spit my meat back out onto my plate, something that hasn't been necessary in quite some time. The cats didn't seem to mind so we fed all the meat to them. Service was fine, view overlooking the plaza was nice. I would stick to bottled... More

the service was friendly but a little bit disorganised. but we overlooked this mishap as the food was very tasty, well prepared and the view from the terrace over the Place Lahdime was well worth the climb up the stairs.

Thank Harry R
