Not bad

The picture provided by the management is not accurate of the actual restaurant. However the roof terrace has nice views and our waitress was very good. The food was good too- the spaghetti bolognese actually tasted like it should. Kids are properly for the first time since we've come to Morrocco.

This restaurant works very hard to keep up with the challenge of being on the Jemaa el Fna. Go early, settle in for a good evening watching the world go by - have a full meal, much better as a total experience

A lovely cafe to visit for drinks or food. Plenty of seating, brilliant views of the square. Service was friendly.

The menu at Les Premices was standard fare for Marrakech - tagines, couscous, and a few other items. The staff were good and happily made a change to the menu for a fussy eater, and the food was tasty - top attraction though is the view over the square, which is superb. The portions, with the bread and olives at... More

Set on the edge of the square with great views from roof terrace, les Premices doesn't look special from the outside. However, the food is inexpensive. Its not very imaginative or very tasty and the portions are small. The place makes it memorable - and it is authentic Moroccan. IE Tagines cous cous mint tea etc.. Visited October 2014

I went here with a big group, and as with all things, the bigger the group, the more mistakes get made regarding food orders. We were overcharged for things we didn't buy, a lot of the food (especially that ordered by meat eaters) was cold or at best lukewarm.... When with a smaller group though, there were no mistakes and... More

Ideally placed on the market square. We enjoyed our lunch here, very tasty and cheap with great views of the square.

We ate 3 times in this restaurant and I was very impressed with the beef Berber Tajine. Seems that pizza is not their strongest dish as my wife tried one day. But we marked this place as our safest option in the square.

Touristy spot above the main square and the service was a bit slow and curt. However, the food was surprisingly delicious, especially the lamb tagine - super tender lamb and delicious flavour of preserved lemon.
