We sat down here for a rest after a full day of sight-seeing in Marrakesh and it proved to be the perfect place. If you get a seat close to the edge you can see almost the whole square and sitting here over sunset is a beautiful experience. They have a good selection of coctails for a cheap price, so... More

We ate here as the Rough Guide recommended it as offering a mix of Moroccan and Western dishes which would satisfy a family including 2 fussy teenagers and a wife who will not eat at a street market stall as they do not have running water. The decor is very basic and my sons turned up their noses at it... More

Came here as we thought it would be a lovely evening overlooking the square and all the hustle and bustle whilst enjoying a good meal. WRONG! Waited quite a while to get served by a sullen waiter. Ordered the same, chicken tagine. My husband's contained some chicken, mind on the other hand was mostly bone. Very disappointed.

We wanted a quick bite for lunch and were too tired to look for restaurants. Stopped here, big mistake. I had what they called a pizza, it was so bad that I lack the accurate words to describe it. My girlfriend made the mistake of ordering a milk shake -- two days later she is still recovering from it. Do... More

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
