Rubbish. The only reason anyone goes here is to look over Jemaa el-fna. Go, just purely to take a photo of the market (you'll have to buy something - water, mint tea etc... to be allowed in), but don't plan to spend too long.

Patio overlooks the square. Perfect to get away from the crowds and enjoy a mint tea. I would recommend the mille feuille! the staff are very friendly and helpful. Prices are reasonable.

Terrace overlooks the night market in main square so has a great atmosphere and is a good introduction to Marrakesh while maintaining a distance and getting your bearings. We had an evening meal here and the pizza and kebabs were fine but both the lamb...More

My wife and I visited here for dinner. Some reviewers complain about having to pay when ordering. This only applies if you only want to have a drink and enjoy the views over the Souk. There are signs that warn you that access to the...More
