A good find in the very centre of Kech

Stumbled across Aqua while debating what I wanted for supper. With a bright, modern ground floor area leading to an upper floor overlooking the main square, I decided to give it a go. In mid-January it was easy to get a balcony table giving a view of all the happenings across the square. Menus in... read more

This is a touristy place. Of course it is, right in the heart of the old town with a roof terrace overlooking part of the market. This is not a high class dining restaurant. If it was, this restaurant would maybe get three stars. But as a touristy place to have lunch while strolling the city, this place is really... More

We decided to go here attracted from the "brasserie" ensign on the front of the restaurant. After many days of tagine and moroccan spicy food we were missing our western one and the restaurant has proved a good compromise. There is a nice ambient inside, quiet and warm, we had an hamburger and a pizza calzone, both of them fair.... More

I've stayed in Marrakech for three days and went there everyday The place is modern, the staff is good, the atmosphere is quite and nice. The food is delicious and the price is fair, since the location is so popular. You can have a pizza, calzone or typical Moroccan food for about 50-60 MAD (+-5 €) which is good. The... More

Had too many tagines? Come here for Cheeseburger and chips or a pizza then. Reasonable food and good service. No alcohol due to its proximity to the mosque.

We found this place by chance in the city center and we loved it. The food is different than traditional as everywhere else.

Many places on Place Jemaa el Fna are somewhat dodgy. Our European hosts recommended Aqua as they said it was clean and safe and good value. They were right. Food is lovely although menu is limited. Views from the top are good and the staff were helpful and friendly. Cash only.

The restaurant is situated in the Place Jamaa El Fna, offering a great view of the square from the upper floor of the restaurant. The quality of the food is very good. We enjoyed the Tagine chicken and the pastries filled with chicken, beef, cheese and vegetable ( sorry the name escapes me). It is reasonably priced compared to the... More

If you sit upstairs it is a great place to sit and watch the madness of the Jemaa el Fnaa. Service was very good. Food was pretty good - nothing special but ok. Had a singer on the night we went .. very pleasant indeed Worth a visit

One of the better spots to watch the madness of El Fnaa. Best about it is that prices are very reasonable for tasty bite (pizza or marocan). The friendly staff, good service and ok restrooms are a bonus. No acohol is served but that's not not uncommon in Marocco.
