I cannot rate the food, but this is the spot from which all the photos you see of the Jemaa el Fna from above are taken. We arrived in late afternoon, paid 2 Euros each for a Coke, and found a table directly overlooking the...More

We only visited this restaurant to utilise the great balcony it has that overlooks the entire Jemaa el Fna. To do so, you will need to purchase a drink at the counter before you gain access to the balcony. Once you buy your drink you...More
