“Terrace with a View”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

One of the many cafes lining the south eastern side of the Jemaa El Fna, this one offers a nice terrace from which you can enjoy a great view of the square. The food is not bad, the service is a bit slow but you go here for the views so you don't want to be rushed. Take your time and enjoy the atmosphere of the Jemaa El Fna. The price is a bit on the expensive side (we paid MAD 122 for one Pizza Margherita, one Chicken Tajine and one Vegetable Coucous) but it is similarly priced to the other cafes besides it. The Tajine of Chicken with lemons was good.

You go here to grab a bite while you rest your legs after browsing the souk and take in the scene. Go for a table on one of the two terraces for the good views. The 2nd terrace is the best. We got our best camera shots of the square from up here.

“Try somewhere else”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Nice location and good atmosphere. Food is not good. Only ok for soda or tea. Really cheap bland food. Pizza quite dry and Moroccan dishes not tasty. Try somewhere else!

“Great View of the square!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

A bit more understated then the obvious choices, but the food was delicious. Great view of the hustle in the square - come here in the evening for a ringside seat. Highly recommend the 7-veg couscous!

“Wasted opportunity”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012 via mobile

Really great location and it should be a fantastic eatery, but the location is wasted by these amatures
The service was slow, the waiters not polite, though not rude. Pizzas dry as biscuits, couscous bland and the spag bol I sent back twice as it was chilled. The third time I just rejected it as it come back within 3 mins, obviously microwaved and I didn't trust it to not give me a bad tummy
