The juice stalls around the Jemaa el Fna sell amazing juices, including freshly squeezed orange juice, watermelon, peach, pineapple and blood orange! It was so amazing!

A favourite place for us to people and traffic watch was Yammys café in the square. We were there just after the Eid holiday and it was quiet but in the evening the place came alive and the outside eateries looked to have smartened up their act

Nice place to be . Pulsing market at day and at night . It depends on the point of view . Thousands of people running around , locals and tourists, but without an expected hectic. Around the market u will find lots of cafes and restaurants to relax or to sniff some complementary wifi . Glad of being here. Recommended... More

If you're hungry after a long day and need quick food head to the Jemaa el Fna food stands! They are great food! My favourite was the calamari and the egg sandwiches (8MD)!!! The egg sandwiches come with cream cheese, olive oil, spice, potatoes and boiled egg and is perfect to buy for breakfast the next morning especially if you... More

This is a busy square with a multitude of different stalls, food, juices and all of the usual souvenirs. There are also lots of ladies offering henna.

take a nap before you go, sharpen your senses,- you ar up for a ride When you get to the square, find a nice stand in the multitude of provisional restaurants (a good tip is to go where you can see local customers and /or where there are many guests). The food is basically the same but crowded places have... More

As other people said, do not go to stand 15! We ordered aubergines, Moroccan salad, mix skewers and fried fish. First they brought us 2 plates of salads and 2 plates of aubergines when we had ordered only one of each. I sent the plates back. Then they bring you some bread and olives , which anywhere else in the... More

Layla Rouge is a hidden gem in the middle of the Medina of Marrakech, only 5 minutes from the square . We receive and welcome guests from all over the world and offer them the chance to know more about Moroccan traditions, especially the local cuisine which is well known all over for its fragrant spices and delicious dishes such as Tajines, Pastilla and Couscous . Our cooking classes are taught by experts, the friendly Aida and Sanae who teach you how to make Moroccan bread, salad, crepes and Tagine with expertise so you can recreate them at home. You will enjoy tea and rooftop views whilst your tagine cooks. There are fun surprises along the way and the day ends with the chance to eat all the food you have created on our beautiful rooftop terrace. Thoroughly enjoyable from start to finis
