An experience like no other!

Nothing can prepare you for the sights of Jemaa el Fna! Snake charmers and vultures, vendors trying to sell their wares (anything and everything), story tellers and singers and food to die for. This is a must see for those visiting Marrakech and an insight to the culture of this wonderful country!

Jemaa el Fna night food market. Ate here twice during a stay in Marrakech. Stall No. 1 for great kebabs but go to the one that does just lamb - 13 I think it is. You get a quartered bread some harissa and a plate load of freshly barbecued lamb - meat, brains and most likely other bits best not... More

One of those places where the ambiance varies so much depending on the time of the day. Morning is quiet, From lunch time it gets more active with many street performers but at night the variety of food, entertainment and food stalls is amazing!

Great atmosphere, great food, great people! Be alert though there are many people who want your money (I got a monkey thrown at me). My wife was also grabbed by the hand and drawn on with henna. Overall though a magical place with lots to offer.

For those expecting a quiet stroll amid some pleasant scenes you will be disappointed. But for those who get excited by the hustle and bustle this is for you. So many sights and sounds, it is worth coming back night after night just to immerse yourself in it. The food is good quality and excellent value. We ate really well... More

It's all hustle and bustle but, what did one really expect! Food is of variable quality. You will be invited to dine at each and every stall you pass. Choose the stall that the locals have chosen, you'll not go wrong. It's cheap and represents great value and the real Marrakech...

We ate here every night - none of us were sick one including my 3 yr old daughter who loved all the activity on the main square and the food too! It's street food, so be prepared to go local. Firstly, you will be hassled, every trader wants to get bums on seats, most of it is good natured and... More
