This little place provided us with a regular stop during our stay, was great to sit in the sun and enjoy the sights of the main square. The food is very tasty and arrives quickly with a smile, We really enjoyed this spot for a but of lunch and watching the world go by

We stopped here after reading a few reviews and we were not disappointed. The waiter was very helpful and spoke pretty good English. Not looking for a big meal, we had a panini and a chicken wrap. The chicken was freshly cooked and flavoured like a tikka. As mentioned in other reviews the fries were really good. Not quite enough... More

​We stopped here for a lunch when at the main square in the Medina. We only wanted something simple and this was perfect. The food was tasty and not expensive. We sat outside and had a great view of all the comings and goings of the square. Great place for nice eats and people watching!

We were hugely disappointed by the Cafe de France a couple of days ago so tried Yami for lunch yesterday. It's to the right across the street from Cafe de France, on the corner of the square. In a city where caution is the way to go with food on a first visit, it looked clean and attractive and it... More

We were after something simple and not overly western. This looked ok and appeared to have a large amount of locals eating inside ( which is always a good sign). We sat outside and watched the world go by and ate some traditional food with a modern twist, location was great and the staff were attentive and food was quick... More

A clean and cheap place to eat, good to sit back and people-watch from the edge of the Jmaa-El-Fnaa. The juices and ice creams are very good and the food is nice, a mix of western and Moroccan food which works well if you've had too many tagines and want some fries.

A good place to sit back from the bustle and eat good, cheap food. The fries are excellent and they do the best English Tea in Marrakesh. The fruit juices and ice creams are great too.

Very slow service. Otherwise good coffee and orange juice... Oh by the way the service is slow! And there are a lot of people selling useless stuff to you all the time... At the last moment, just before we wanted to leave without eating, they left us order a salade (nothing special)!

If you want lunch by the square that is quick, easy and good value this is the place. The smoothies were excellent, the mint tea just sweet enough and the paninis are hot. tasty and come with fries!
