Whether you want tea or ice cream (first level) or a full meal (top level), this is a good choice on Jemaa el Fna square. The service was good and the view excellent. They serve Moroccan food, but specialize in Italian, so if your palate needs a change, try pizza or pasta here.

The waiter just ignored me several times as he had to talk by phone. The bill never arrived even though we asked for it more than once. Turns out they didn't know what we ordered.

We ate dinner here, and were left extremely satisfied with the pizza and pasta dishes, which were nicer than some of the pizzas that we have had in England. The service was great, with really friendly waiters and a great view of the square.

We had drinks here whilst watching the comings and goings of the square. The Tuk Tuk taxi bikes are amusing and you can watch the snake charmers, local acrobats and horse drawn carriages coming and going. We didn't eat here but we had the Virgin Mojitos and they are the best we had in Marrakech, being made with a sorbet... More

I was there with my Moroccan friend. We ordered ice cream, but our portions were not what we ordered. The waiter did not want to change the portions at first, after a short arguing he changed mine but he was very rude. The most expensive cafe in the area.

Well located restaurant in the centre of Jemma El-Fna with a great view. Initially sat in the front cafe area but was accosted by vendors so I moved to the middle terrace with my hot chocolate and a pastry watching the world go by. The restaurant seems more crowded than it is because of the close proximity of the tables.... More

My favourite place in Marrakech, to sit with a drink and watch the spectacular events in the square. The staff are polite, most speak some english, and very quick to respond to your order. I have never had a meal here, just drinks and icecreams but I dont go for the food, its the view that pulls me back time... More

We stopped here for a late lunch/early dinner for 5 and whilst the food was decent, the service was Bizzare. We were directed to the middle terrace and had ordered drinks when we were advised to move upstairs. We said we were fine but the staff insisted this was better?! Again, we reiterated that we were OK but they were... More

Our waiter was very charming and attentive. We ordered the food (that included a pizza!!) which arrived within 5 mins (a bit too quick??). Disappointed with my vegetable tagine as was more liquid than vegetables.. Very average food but lovely view of the square.
