I wish I'd read the reviews before going there as we might have avoided it. That said, we chose it because it does have a good location of Djemaa el Fna (the main square) and from the upstairs terrace you get a good view of the night time activities going on below. The food was OK (we had... read more

We ate here a couple of times during our last visit and went for their set price menu 160Dh (around £12) for three courses. We do usually eat local food but went for pasta and pizza here as I don't think we could beat the food at our riad. Food was fine and whilst service was a little slow we... More

On our last visit to Marrakech a few years ago, our kids always wanted to eat here - as it served good western food. However we were really disappointed on this occasion. The staff appeared bored, we had to wait ages for our food to arrive, and when it did, it seemed that the kitchen must have run out of... More

Arrived in Marrakesh late in the evening - needed food. Here we had an average Tajine, no alcohol, but a reasonable site overlooking Jemaa el-Fnaa.

Wasn't bad at all. Our waiter was friendly and pleasant. Right on the square. Yes its for tourists but we would be complaining if there were no places for us to go. Enjoyable but we only had a banana split and a coke. Not for you if you hate people trying to sell you things or kids wanting some of... More

What happened?! Should have known better than to end up at this tourist trap, but we were tired. Food and service was terrible.

Food was standard, not alot to chose from but the location and view is nice to sit at the top and and look down on the main square. Service was not bad and the quality of the food was good.

A tired choice! Having travelled far, one simply sought sustenance. This venue appeared attractive enough from street level and offered an appealing view over Jemaa el fna. Observing activities in the square is by far the only aspect of enjoyment to be had at this establishment. The mediocre food and service leave a lot to be desired. As we completed... More

It takes a lot for me to give 1 star but this place was horrendous! The only good point is the location and the view. The service was awful...... I wish I had gone to the toilet before eating because I immediately felt sick afterwards as not just the toilets the whole place was filthy..... We had been eating tagine... More

Went here as part of a tour, so the menu was not really the sort I would like to encounter with pastas and so on. But if you head up to the top there will be a nice view, which I think is better in the evening. But the food, such as the chicken tagine, served in metal containers, would... More
