Had lunch there earlier today. Good location with some tables on the roof looking onto jema el fna. The main problem was the service was terribly slow; ages to take order, bring drinks & food. The mixed kebab & kofte tagine were average. The orange...More

Good range of snacks and lunches just off Jemaa El Fna square. Their chicken shawarma wraps with chips (fries) are very good and for 20 dhr (less than £2) a definite bargain. A good place to sit and watch the world go by.

We had dinner here 2 out of the 4 nights we spend in Marrakech. The pizzas were amazingly good!! We also tried typical moroccan soups wich were delicious. The terrace has amazing views but there are lots of cats running all over the place.
