Food is okay, passable pizza, and reasonably priced. Service is okay too. But this cafe is exceptional. The rooftop terrace affords fantastic views over Jmaa el Fna square. Sitting, while snacking, watching the sun set and the activity in the square intensify is truly a memorable experience. Go for the best seat in Marrakech.

what makes this place is the location - lively atmosphere and ok food. Preferred this place to Cafe de France as at least there was not a fixed menu so an element of choice possible.

Be prepared to be moved from your table to another as they try to cater for various size groups - no particular subtlety to this.

Pizza was ok - service not particularly speedy

This has one of the best views of the square from the 1st floor. It's a sight to see after the sun goes down. Food was good; not an extensive menu (menu has a lot of pizza offerings) and some Moroccan dishes. We had the flan for dessert and it was excellent. But the real reason you eat here is for the unparalled view.

I read all of these reviews after my visit to l'Alhambra, i was surprised to see the negativity towards the staff and more importantly the food. The restaurant has a wood fired stove so it is really hard to get pizza wrong. Being Italian in origin i have tasted many of good and bad pizzas over the years, this was not one of them!

Now dont get me wrong, this isnt out of this world, but for 75dh, when you consider; as with any other square facing restaurant in the world you are paying for the view, the food vs cost was totally acceptable.

I also disagree with many of the comments towards to staff, normally in restaurants with a view, table space is key and the aim of the staff is to achieve the highest turn over possible, we didn't feel like this here, we didn't fell like we was rushed away from our seats, and was served with a smile.

We went to this restaurant because our guidebook recommended it for lunch overlooking the main square. The terrace we were shown onto was hot and scruffy, with tatty old tables and cats running around the seating. (I like cats, but not sharing my lunch table.) We ordered pizzas, which were rather rubbery and tasteless: we had intended to have salads, but having seen the restaurant close up, didn't feel confident about the water the salad vegetables would have been washed in. The drinks menu excluded alcohol, so I chose alcohol-free beer. That was not available; nor was my second choice or my third. The waiter seemed uninterested in his job and rather inefficient at it, mixing up people's lunch orders more often than he got them right, and careless of customer opinion. This was our worst meal in Marrakech.
