Great time in the Medina

Real experience, a must when visiting Marrakesh. Bit scary, as so easy to get lost, but focus on the tallest Mosque across from the square, and eventually you will find your way back Lovely smell of herbs and spices. Good bargains to be had if you are strong minded about what you are prepared to... read more

By day freshly squeezed orange juice is on sale in the square but at night a vast range of foods is available . Large stalls appear engulfed in flames as cooking on open fires about 8 feet high seems commonplace . Chestnuts , meats , snails you name it and it will be there somewhere

A great dining experience...not necessarily for the food, but the atmosphere and carnival of the stalls. The food we ate was okay - nothing special, but not terrible either. It was very cheap.

After reading about stall 1 we tried it...and left hungry and disappointed. The lambchops were almost entirely fat. The kebabs were dry. The bread and salsa was good. I'd suggest wondering through here - but not eating here.

A must do for the experience but don't expect gourmet quality. Surviving the onslaught of the touts for each stall became wearing, but funny in retrospect.

If you are walking around in the square you will get overwhelmed by many choices and everybody calling, so take it easy and relax that's normal and go straight to number 22 without hesitation you will enjoy it, act like you know the place very well and order. have fun

I was looking forward to eating here after looking at the reviews, however I was so disappointed with the food. I ordered the chicken tagine unfortunately the chicken was only white at the edge as I cut further it was far too pink and there was some blood when I cut into it. I thought ok I'll leave it and...

Didn't eat but sat in the mint tea stall and enjoyed watching Moroccan families and babies sitting near us and watching the world go by for half an hour. And a large class was around 4 dirhams, so very cheap. Lovely friendly staff.

I've eaten here a number of times, I enjoy the simple Arab food in tapas style portions. Never had any stomach problems after eating here and normally have a filling meal for two people at 80 dirhams which is around £5.50. Then walk two stalls away for a large glass of steaming mint tea for around 4 dirhams / 27p!... More

The Central Plaza has stalls to have dinner, and we ate twice at Number 1, which was excellent and very affordable.
