Stopped here for a drink with my husband and 2 grown up daughters. To say the sullen waiter was rude was an understatement. Kept walking off whilst we were still talking to him. Asked to use the toilet before we left and was told I’d...More

The cafe is just next to the jemaa el fna and you look down onto the square. The Cafe offers food and drinks and it is mandatory to order something to drink or eat to go to the balcony. The drinks itself are normal nothing...More

This restaurant’s claim to fame is definitely the view. After walking around Jemaa El Fna, it is the perfect spot for a typical Moroccan mint tea accompanied by people watching over the Soukh. This spot is a haven from the hectic nature of the plaza,...More

Park yourself on the second floor overlooking the market, especially at night. Get a coffee and some dessert and just sit back and relax.

Fantastic location overlooking the square. Although in a prime tourist location this restaurant offers excellent food and great value with good friendly service. Chilled at lunchtime and frenetic as the sun goes down.... don't miss!

The biggest/cheapest cafe on a corner that overlooks the whole square. You ideally only want to come here for the view and will need to purchase a drink per person to do this (20MAD for a bottle of water). You can eat here, and it's...More
