Being an amateur photographer, I was looking for a place to get a good overview of Jemaa El Fna. Our tour guide recommended Le Grand Balcon Cafe Glacier. It was not easy to find. While the terrace/balcony is easy to see, the stairs leading up...to it are about "half a block" to the left as as you face the terrace. You have to buy something to get onto the terrace. I spent 20 dirham for an overpriced orange soda, but the view it gave me was outstanding. I spent about an hour up there takingMore
We went here because of the reviews. While there are good views (2 drink purchase required), we saw slot of other places with great views as well.
If you haven’t ate yet, find another restaurant with a great view and eat/drink there. You want be...missing anything. This isn’t a place I would eat at.More
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.More
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 :)More
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.More
