We stopped here 3 times for just drinks and also once to eat, sitting on the various levels. Don't know why some people have given bad reviews?! Friendly relaxed service, great location for people watching, nice coffee and food was good and not bad price considering location. Clean toilets too, always a plus in Marrakesh. Would totally recommend.

We had our first and our final evening meals here. We tried other restaurants for lunches and meals over our long weekend, but we had better food and service here. The 160 Dh menu (3 courses) is a bargain. Tried various things but can recommend the Salad Nicoise, Smoked Salmon and Avocado salad, Kefta Tajine and Crème Caramel. Very nice.... More

I think I must have been somewhere else to most recent reviews!!! We chose to eat local food most nights out when in Marrakech, and I found the Tajine kefta at this restaurant was better than any of the others we went too (you are paying 65 Dhm). True, the service was not the quickest in the world, but the... More

visited on first night after long day travelling: we were a bit shell shocked by the square; decent terraces to view people and goings on in the main square. Food is relatively conventional but not bad and fairly priced given the location ( you kinda get what you pay for here, nothing is truly a bargain) but the ability to... More

My 12 year old son and I were in Jemaa el-Fna our first night and just wanted something to eat and to take in the vibe of the square. We chose Les Terrasses and sat at a table on the balcony. Contrary to a lot of other reviews, our service was the best part of the experience. We got a... More

Food was fine, inexpensive, no alcohol, but the staff really didn't care. Terrace was fine if you got a seat right at the front. It Raines and they had a very efficient cover.

We came here quite a few times as it was possible to while away a few hours over a coffee or mint tea, even in the evenings upstairs on the balcony when food was being served. The menu was just about the same as everywhere else but we felt care had been taken over it. Tomato stalks were cut out,... More

We visited L'Alhambra twice, once for a quick coffee before diving back into the medina, and once for an early evening meal. On both occasions the staff were surly and generally apathetic towards us, the first time we thought it was because it was lunchtime and we were not ordering food which was why we tried it again later in...

This is not a restaurant for food. It happens to be in a location facing the main square otherwise no tourists will go there. The rude waiters couldn't careless about how they serve you because they know there are always tourists go there. The pizza we ordered and shared was okay and most people just order pizza. And this place... More

Location is lovely but down hill after that........ Slow and grumpy service and a long wait for food. It was cold when it arrived. Vegetable Tagine not cooked, we swapped it for a pizza but witnessed another table being refused an offer to swap! We also witnessed a waiter drop a piece of salmon from a plate in the holding...
