A classic case of 'never judge a book by its cover'. We were seduced into this place by its bright interior and slightly superior decor, compared with other cheap-food eateries along the rue Bani-Marine. We were further encouraged by the fact that they actually had proper paper serviettes rather than the customary bits of torn-up paper. Paper hand towels, too.... More

Our guide recommended this place for a lunch stop (and notably sat and ate here too!). Very busy with lots of locals, very cheap and tasty food - deserving of it's Tripadvisor certificate. Not flash but a good place to eat at a great price with friendly service.

If you want to taste real Moroccon food and flavour that's the place to go. Both the cous cous and the tajine are simple and very good! It's the perfect place for a quick dinner or lunch with no frills.

It's a reassuring sign when you see lots of locals in a restaurant like this. The food was piping hot and very tasty - the chicken tagine with frites was excellent and SO CHEAP! Great when you're holidaying with 2 hungry teenagers. Staff were friendly too.

This restaurant was more like a canteen. It was clean, had paper table cloths and cafe style settings . The food was very basic but ridiculously cheep! We were advised that the best option was to pick our meat from the display and have it plainly grilled , this we did but found the quality of the cooking a bit... More

No fuss. White, white and white decor. Trestle tables. Thought lamb kebab(6) meant six lamb cubes on a kebab but it actually means six kebabs each with six lamb cubes. Tender, mildly spiced.Buy with couscous and lemon, tomato and onion and mint tea. Chips available if homesick. Excellent. Good food dirt cheap. Go there.

If you're looking for a cheap meal in the city, but don't fancy the stalls in Jemaa El Fna, this is a great little place for tasty skewers and couscous and very low prices. The place was packed when we visited but service was quick and the food hot and fresh. Nothing fancy, but tasty.

We visited Oscar Progres on recommendation from the owner of our riad. Serves the usual range of food found in Marrakech - tagines, cous cous, pastilla etc. Good value, fast service, tasty & only a couple of minutes walk from the main square.

We found Restaurant Oscar as a recommendation from a local - lucky us! This place was really really cheap. Each time we started with Salad Oscar (25dh) and then had a prune and lamb tagine (50dh, with PLENTY of baked almonds and meat falling off the bone beautifully). Chicken tagine was also only 35dh but we didn't try it. The... More
