As many people are saying, is a total rip off.They put complemental dishes that you have'nt order and charge you way more than expected...in Spain you can eat double and better quality for the same price...and you are in Morroco! It's insane...and the better part came when we complained about the bill...the waiters became to behave very rude with us... More

I don't know which one it was but we were totally ripped off. They kept bringing dishes which we thought were complimentary. They were all almost inedible and we just picked at them leaving most. The main dishes arrived and these were just as bad. Having not eaten hardly anything, even the stale tasting bread, we were shocked to be... More

Take a fruit cocktail, buy some fruits or herbs. This is taking part of Marrakesh. You cannot miss it and must experience it.

We ate in the Medina on Monday night. Everyone vying for your custom. Everyone doing something different but ensure you only pay for what you order. We ordered kebab and lamb and got an extra dish of chicken & cous cous brought out which we had not ordered so sent it back. Also the menu quoted a price of 40drh... More

They will over charge and charge 10 d for the bread they throw down in front of you. Food was below avg. I would avoid it at all costs.

Navigating the food stalls in the square can be somewhat daunting given the pressure tactics employed by certain stalls to sit foreigners. Stall 98 however just has good food and was full of locals. Had a mountain of delicious food for two that cost less than $10 USD.

A must for anyone travelling to Morocco is to sample the local cuisine at one of the stalls in the square. You select your dish from a menu there are lots of stalls to choose from. Once your dish has been selected you are offered seating whilst it is being prepared. Throughout the experience you can see your food being... More

The stalls are not to be missed—that being said, they are also not spectacular. We ate at Stall 65, and the prices were a bit high for quite average food. The menu is not clear, and we ended up with a bill much higher than we were anticipating. The atmosphere is unique, at least.

Same thing happened to us at food stall 31 - they gave us bread and mint tea, and aubergine that we did not order, and tried to charge us far more than all the extra food that gave us. The guy asked me to pull out the calculator and his number was off by 140 dirhams (on top of 120... More

This was our 2nd visit to Marrakech, we loved it the first time in 2016. This year (2017), we went to dine at the food stalls as the food is always really good and sat down at stall number 31. And I am sure everyone knows they add a little money to your bill for food but this time, at... More
