We visited here initially for a lunch but returned most days of our visit for the Ice cream - probably the best on the edge of Jemal el Fna I'd particularly rate the café liegois - the best I've had outside of France.

Nice views over the jamaa el fna square but the food wasn't good. My husband and I both ordered a chicken tagine. We were literally given half a chicken each with some bread. My husband had some meat on his but mine was mainly bone. There were no vegetables and no cous cous. We ended up eating again elsewhere. Service... More

The five of us ate twice at Les Premices during our stay. Service was good/laid-back - which we welcomed - and the coffees, fruit juices, tajines, omelettes, kebabs, etc, were great also. A main course with a drink was typically £4 - £5. We wanted to watch the vibrant life of the Square as we relaxed and dined, so we... More

We ate here once and had a reasonable meal. The prices were fair but the service was a little brusque. During the daytime, the views of the square are good but early evening it becomes rather cool without the rays from the setting sun.

Ate here when we had had our fill of moroccan food! Big pizza for me, spag bol for rt. Cannot fault quality for the price. Great service in a great location. You will pay more for other restaurants on the square.

On the South Side of Place Jamaa El Fna, probably the most famous square in the world! Wonderful local food for extremely reasonable prices! Tagines are too die for! and such a variety! Soft drinks only! But you won't leave hungry! Service a little slow but only due to the enormity of service they have and everything is obviously cooked... More

Restaurant is in a great tourist location overlooking the busy square. However the service was awful, we waited half an hour for two bowls of soup, then another half hour for some cous cous and a tagine. The soup was luke warm, and the mains very bland. The service was even worse and we were actively ignored. Couldn't agree more... More

Sitting on the terrace you get to watch the comings and goings in the square and, if you're lucky, you therefore won't notice how bland the food is. The couscous has no flavour, the accompanying meat and vegetables don't really either. A bit of Harissa would go a long way! Service was ok and it's cheap enough that you don't... More

My husband and I stopped here on our first day for just a drink. It was ok but when we paid they took the money but didn't give us our change. We had to ask for it twice and had to wait about 10 minutes. By this time there was another man also being made to wait for his change.... More

This is a 'restaurant' smack in the Jamaa Fnaa, the main square of Marrakesh and were it not for the location I am sure it would long be out of business. But because so many thousands of tourists flock to the Jamaa every day some few make the mistake of venturing into the clutches of this poor excuse for a... More
