We came here an evening for dinner. The restaurant is primarily frequented by locals - the more wealthy ones. We had traditional food (tajin) and it was good, but we did not get this "whau"-feeling we have got at other places - even at restaurants with lower "status"

Go and spend some time in the palace. It is nice, cheap entrance - 1 euro, and very good place for photos. It is a bit hard to find at first, as there are no signs to point to it. Just before entrance, you have a lot of nice places to buy food, drinks, postcards, fruits ...

This is a lovely introduction to ancient Moroccan design located in the heart of the old city and most photogenic. It also offers shade and a green inner sanctum courtyard for respite and to rest your weary travelling bones. If it's quiet you are lucky - countdown to the next stream of coach tourists. It just proves you have arrived... More

At 10dh entrance fee, this is well worth a visit. Well preserved example of early Moroccan architecture. Lots of shade so great to get out of the heat!

Well worth a visit if you are interested in seeing a classic Moroccan palace. Very cheap to get in, and some good photo opportunities inside.

If you've already done the Jemma el Fna you don't need to do this one too, unless you're in love with Moorish architecture or a photography nut. if you're on a budget and trying to decide between them, so the Bahia Palace, nearly just as good and you can't beat the 10 dirham entrance fee!
