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.

We were in jemaa el fna quite late and hadn't researched places to eat, this restaurant was mentioned in our guidebook as being a good place to people watch etc so we decided to give it a try. The two guys on the door were luring people in by offering free desserts which was an added bonus. We were seated... More

Of all restaurants we tried, this was the one with the best value for money. It was the only one that we repeat. Hint: Taste Moroccan pastilla. An excellent sweet and salty. With chicken, powdered sugar and cinnamon. Good for a change of tagine and couscous.

My friends and I have one of the best meals of the summer here. We all had the chicken tangine, which was delicious. The view of the square is great, and the wifi was reliable. We had a creme brulee, or pannacotta for dessert, which was also very good. Service was fast, and I thought the prices were reasonable.

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
