This place is full of attractions. Yummy local foods, local dances, horse cart, local shopping and flavor. Be careful of your belongings here.

amazing place - go late afternoon - view from one of the many terraces and watch the food stalls set up and the sun go down, monkeys, snakes, dancers etc - just brace yourself when you're at ground level , you might get run over by a donkey!

Our guide from Original Morocco Tours recommended stall #1 Aisha (not sure of the spelling) as a consistently safe bet. We enjoyed Kefta kebabs, grilled lamb, olives, bread, Pastilla and bottled water. 4 people ate for about $10 total. You can not match the amazing circus atmosphere. Waiters were eager and cheerful. The little stools were actually comfortable. Don't miss... More

What can I say - every day was different! Although we popped back on the Sunday - the begining of school holidays and were shocked at how busy it was - just so much going on and so many people! Very colourful, gave a wide berth to the monkeys and snakes! Saw the storytellers though and that was quite interesting... More

Great buzz when entertainers, story tellers and the evening food stalls take over from the daytime traders. Graze you way through the market. It may take several days! Really annoyed with myself for not having the courage to try the snails. But so many other interesting tastes.

We were so looking forward to eating here as the reviews we had read on Trip advisor were excellent, I am extremely disappointed that our experience was so different. We were seated and handed a menu, we both ordered the lamb tagines at 30DH and a small water each at 10 DH, we were promptly served a roll and a... More

This is one crazy place. You will never fail to be surprised here. There are a zillion things happening at the same time. Late evenings are the best time here. There are local artists, african musicians, myriad food stalls, monkeys, snakes and God alone knows what else. Amazing time always!
