4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Noisey, bustling and wonderful in the evening. Friendly staff trying to get you to eat at their stall, Jamie Oliver this Rick Stein that etc etc. Ate here once for the experience. You have to visit this place at least once when in Marrakech then tick it off your to do list

“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

What a place, packed every day and a real taste of tradition.
Saturday night was busier than other nights, show men, snake charmers, be careful of the groups standing watching the muscians, give or throw your coins to the actors as guys come round asking for money for the muscians but keepit for themselves. Hold tight to your bags.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

This central square has to be seen to be believed! Full of noise and excitement by day with stalls, water sellers, snake charmers and monkey owners. At night turns into one large eating place with amazing smells and sights.

“best by night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

active by day with snake charmers and stalls, but best by night when the cooking stalls are active and the drummers begin. enjoy being in the square, but also think about eating or drinking on one of the terraced restaurants and watching the action. snail selling stalls are cheap and delicious, some of the food stalls are poor quality and quite expensive. check the quality of the produce that they are going to cook before being dragged into a stall!
