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.

Greta place to stop in after a busy haggle in the square. Cheap but good food can be had to refresh you for another stint of bargaining. I recommend the pannini's!
