“Jemma el Fna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

The main square in the centre of Marrakech is a fabulous experience, it is a genuine eye opener, from snake charmers to local artists and everything in between.
Best visited at night on Friday or Saturday for the best experience, amazing.

“good in small doses”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

be prepared for the hard sell...kids with ballons, monkeys, snakes, acrobats. It's chaos but good fun.

“full of everything”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

First, take some pictures with the local water sellers and with the singers gnaou. than, buy the delicious fresh orange juice and give a walk around. after you will be tired of so many beggers and seeing so many...everything, eat some cactus fruit, than sit down at the terraces-roof cafes and enjoy the best tea in the world-Marrakech Tea.

“Amazing- Its a must day or night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

FUll of horse drawn carriages during the day, but I would recommend sitting in a Cafe roof terrace (get there around 6pm grab a drink and watch as the jemaa el Fna changes into a night time street food market) Amazing and the roof top terraces get very busy from 7 onwards.
Food stools 1 and 91 are really really good! All the food seems the same listed but Stall 1 spinach was amazing and spicey. Just be warned of all the hassle you will get to try and pick a food stall but by saying you remember their number and you will pop back later seemed to work.. although it feels very repeative after the 10th time! Its a must day or night
