“Underrated marrakchi restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

The reviews on trip advisor do not do this place enough justice. The location is excellent with a terrace overlooking Jamaa Fna. The food is traditional Moroccan. The meat with prunes was exquisite,the pigeon pastilla delicious and the chicken lemon tajine simply heavenly. For 3 ppl 3 appetizers, 4 mains, large water, large tea and tip bill was 280dhs very reasonable
Definitely highly recommended and coming back for another meal.

“The best Tajine's........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

I dont normally follow guide books, but this one off cause the recommendation was written so good i thought i'd give it a try.

In end i went and tried nearly all the tajine's on menu over my 8 day stay.

my favourite two was the raisins and almond....... and plum and onions.

Sit on the third floor and watch the activity over the square enjoying a mint tea.

“Great location, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

Great location, right in the main Djemaa el-Fna square. Fab views of the madness below. Food good and great value for money. Staff friendly and service good, although a little unusual to write your own order down for the waiters. Worth a visit.

“Ok food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We had lunch here on a our first day, we both had a tagine which was ok. 2 tagines and 2 soft drinks cost about £13 so very reasonable for the location.

“Average food at great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We ate here on our first night in Marrakech. The food turned out, in hindsight, to be average quality. Having said that - we visited many other places and most were not much better. Location, however, cannot be beaten and it was great to watch the activity on the Jeema El Fna a few floors below.
