Why come here? For the views. Enjoy watching the lights change and the square change with it as the sun goes down. Pizzas good, pasta ok, staff never friendly but visited twice as a "safe option" to market stalls food!

We visited this restaurant on our first night in Marrakech, and was highly disappointed. Due to the location of this restaurant on the main square, they have a captivated audience. Although the view from the main terrace are good, the food and the service were not. We both ordered the chicken, which was tasteless and came with a few lettuce... More

As previous reviewer said in his title - nice view! The service was less than accommodating. Food was bland, and not the best. I would not go back again and nor would my wife.... so that pretty much sums it up.

My guide book gave a good write up for this restaurant so we went along for an evening meal. The prime spot in any Marrakech restaurant is the 'panoramic terrace' however all the tables were occupied or reserved so we had to squeeze in at a small table towards the back of the terrace. The table was dirty and sticky,... More

I ate here as I was starving and did not want to walk anywhere. I ordered a pasta dish which was standard. The pasta dish cost 75 dirham which is around £6. I would not recommend eating here unless your starving.

Simple restaurant with a nice terrasse in the middle of Djema el Fna square. We ate pasta and was good enough. The price is very affordable despite the restaurant is in the most touristic place of Marrakech. The staff was not very kind but professional and the service was fast. If you have lucky to get a place in the... More

A guide book told us to go there for tea and pastries after eating in the square which sounded nice after the hustle and bussle of dinner. Took half an hour to tell us dessert only was only served on a different floor then the next waiter on the top floor told us the same but in reverse. If it's... More

Quite surprised about all the negative reviews. I ate a very decent tajin here without any consequences for my stomach. Great view of the squre and nice polite staff. Comfortable terrace for relaxing and people watching.

Still suffering from the after effects after eating at this terrible place some five days ago it's not easy to bring back the memory, but I feel duty calls. Having eaten twice at the stalls in Jeema El Fnaa square and once in a little local cafe ( a delicious Chicken Tajine ) all with no ill effects I thought... More

While visiting the famous Jamaa El Fna Square, we arrived to this coffee shop and decided to rest a little bit while having a drink, then a young french man wearing a suit came to us to inform us that food is also served. It was our worst decision to accept eating there! No clean at all ! Avoid it... More
