Great place to relax, food average

We went here a few times whilst in Marrakech as the view over the square is great, the terrace is kept cool with spray fans, and the drinks are always well chilled. The service is friendly though a bit confused at times and the food was fine but nothing to write home about.

Good location in the middle of Jemma El-Fna. Great to people watch. Chocolate mousse was nice, as was the ice-cream.

We primarily went to this restaurant for the view over the main square. The menu was completely uninspiring. My boyfriend ordered chicken with cous cous and salad. The chicken was dry, the cous cous didn't taste of anything and the salad was limp. In the salad i had there was dry and tough ball of what was meant to be... More

Unfortunately, this place made us sick for days. We ordered pasta and the spaghetti carbonara was served with a raw egg yolk in its shell on top of the spaghetti! It was pretty shocking, and of course we didn't eat the raw egg and tried not to eat the spaghetti which had been touching the egg shell. But apparently this... More

The vegetarian cous cous and tagine are slightly below average when compared to other restaurants around the square. However, staff were very friendly. It should also be noted that this restaurant also has a limited view over the square compared to others.

We decided to have an evening meal here whilst spending a week in Marrakech, the restaurant is in a great location and is perfect for people watching over the Jemaa el-Fna square. We had pizza and a pasta dish and the food was good, nothing special but not bad either, it was about £5 per main meal so no complaints... More

Got a lovely table overlooking the square and sat waiting to place my order. And sat and sat and sat! Waited 20 minutes and got up and left, then waiters appeared, as I was leaving. They protested me leaving and I said there were lots of other places to go, and did just that. Pity it looked ok, but what... More

This restaurant is pretty much what you would expect at a major tourist attraction. The menu is quite bland, mostly European dishes. The food is edible but portions are small and the quality is poor. Good location to sit and people watch. I would recommend that you should just having a drink and a rest here. Go further from the... More

We visited this eaterie several times during our stay in Marrakesh and liked the waiting staff and seating area right in the middle of the crazy square. Its a bit shabby looking and we cant comment on the food but the coffee's are good and my daughter loved the milk shake. It can get a bit annoying when the many... More
