This was our first meal in Marrakech, and certainly the worst!! Dirty, and tastes awfull, i'm sure i hadn't diarrhea because i couldn't ate anything after taking the first bite, neither my family! By the way we ordered chicken tajine. I can't understand why so many people recommend it! After this mistake, the local guide said we should not eat... More

Wanted to eat in the market and was recommended this place. I was very worried about eating in the market and was happy to have a recommendation since it's a scary place to eat, since you have no idea where to eat... this place was exactly what I wanted since I wanted to eat in the market. It was very... More

We really loved Aicha's in 2011 but had a disappointing experience in August 2014. Five of us went and two were satisfied, while one was half-satisfied. My wife's aunt was served lamb chops that were tougher than my shoes. I'd told my party how great a visit to Aicha's woudl be but they felt I'd misled them.

The food at Aicha was great! Having only arrived in Marrakech a couple of hours before we were recovering from the flight and the assault on the senses that is Marrakech (assault in a good way!). Having strolled up and down the aisles in the food market (and being forced to promise to come back to a number of them)... More

The food here is lovely, quickly served and I found the waiters to be far less pushy than the other stalls I experienced. So cheap too for what you get - highly recommended if you are in Jemaa el Fna.

You cannot beat the price. The service is quick and efficient. The food is good and truly authentic, cooked right in front of your eyes. The ambiance is without compare. The experience of sitting at a table exchanging conversation and sharing a meal with strangers is wonderful.

Went here on our third night eating in the square just to see what all the crowds were about. Unfortunately this stalls food was okay, but not amazing like some of the other stalls and the service was terrible. We were rushed to make room for others and the waiter asked 4 times for a tip before we were even... More

Decided to try out one of the food stalls and was pleasantly surprised at first with the nice tasting food at a reasonable price. However it was only afterwards that the regret hit when the food caused stomach problems, which in hindsight is no big surprise given that the meat was on display with no protection all day in the...

After being ripped off by an 'a la carte' restaurant on my first night, I decided to take the plunge and try the market food. I was so impressed by Chez Aicha that I ended up going again for my next night in Marrakech! You might be apprehensive about the hygiene but it was fantastic here and I was never... More
