Travel: Cafe Arabe Morocco

Tucked away in an alleyway within the historic Medina district, Cafe Arabe is a scenic dining venue where guests can sample the sights of the old city whilst indulging in an array of delectable local and Italian dishes.
Opened in 2004, Cafe Arabe is the first official cafe to have opened in the old city area. The cafe has been built in a refurbished Moroccan house, and offers its visitors different dining areas to unwind, each with its own character and layout.
The main restaurant area is elegantly furnished and opens out to a romantic courtyard decorated with leafy orange trees. Colorful paintings by local artists enhance the walls inside the restaurant, and carefully-selected traditional objects give the dining room extra depth and detail.
Enjoy a range of freshly-made drinks and cocktails at the charming bar, or take a seat on the cosy and shaded outdoor terrace where you can savor the views provided by the city skyline and the Atlas Mountains.
The Italian owners of Cafe Arabe have ensured that all dishes prepared at the restaurant retain a balance of local and Italian tastes. Start your meal with a refreshing aperitif, and choose your mains from a long menu consisting of delicious pasta, quiches and homemade salads and pastries.
For dessert, try their range of home-baked cakes and select a drink from the long list of mint teas, coffees and cocktails.
