The only good thing about this place is the view. Staff can be rude and drinks are wayyy too expensive!

Simply the best viewpoint of the square. It is indeed so. The deal consists in buying a drink (non-alcoholic) at the entrance and than enjoying the wonderful panorama. Mint-tea costs you 2€, soft drinks a bit more. The tables directly at the balustrade are the most popular and can take a while until one becomes free. No one's pushing you to drink anymore or leave the place. After a while you have enough anyway and leave again. No place to eat.

If you look for a restaurant which has the best view on the Djemaa El Fna then is is your No 1 choice! Food is nothing special, however it is ok! Its not about the food I guess, its about the amazing view!
I would recommend to arrive 1 hour before sunset and have 1-2 drinks and dinner. Before sunset it is crowded and everybody looks for a free table. Be there before them :)

Staff are a little aggressive when trying to enter the balcony. You get your own drinks from the fridge then pay before you’re allowed in, at 25 dirhams for a soft drink it’s a bit of a rip off. The views of the square below are amazing but it’s very busy. We ordered food, reasonably priced but quite slow and they got my pizza order wrong! I would recommend for the views below it’s great to watch as the sun sets.
