They will over charge and charge 10 d for the bread they throw down in front of you. Food was below avg. I would avoid it at all costs.

Navigating the food stalls in the square can be somewhat daunting given the pressure tactics employed by certain stalls to sit foreigners. Stall 98 however just has good food and was full of locals. Had a mountain of delicious food for two that cost less than $10 USD.

A must for anyone travelling to Morocco is to sample the local cuisine at one of the stalls in the square. You select your dish from a menu there are lots of stalls to choose from. Once your dish has been selected you are offered seating whilst it is being prepared. Throughout the experience you can see your food being... More

The stalls are not to be missed—that being said, they are also not spectacular. We ate at Stall 65, and the prices were a bit high for quite average food. The menu is not clear, and we ended up with a bill much higher than we were anticipating. The atmosphere is unique, at least.

Same thing happened to us at food stall 31 - they gave us bread and mint tea, and aubergine that we did not order, and tried to charge us far more than all the extra food that gave us. The guy asked me to pull out the calculator and his number was off by 140 dirhams (on top of 120... More

This was our 2nd visit to Marrakech, we loved it the first time in 2016. This year (2017), we went to dine at the food stalls as the food is always really good and sat down at stall number 31. And I am sure everyone knows they add a little money to your bill for food but this time, at... More

The evening food stalls in the square are one of the iconic Marrakech experiences. Only for the ultra adventerous, they offer every thing you have ever thought of eating and quite a lot that you probably wouldn't. We have eaten at Kritter, I think it's number 14 where they do deep fried fish. Kritter brings his fish fresh from Essouria... More

You will be hassled to sit at each table, sometimes rudely, sometimes politely and the chances of wandering around and looking in peace before you decide to eat are just about zero. But its worth it for the experience, once anyway. We went to stall 95 and food was good and I was charged the price I expected.

Classic rip off; staff turned aggressive when we questioned all the food we didn't order. They are aiming to get at least 100-150 dirhams out of you no matter what. Food was average, bread was stale and dry. For this price, skip the 'experience' and eat in a nice restaurant!

The most of Morocco - mediocre, greasy food, restaurant hustlers the most aggressive I have seen in twenty years living and traveling in the Middle East, shamelessly rip off prices. Don't believe the guide books - this is absolutely the very worst place to eat in Morocco, both in terms of quality (the kebabs are far better in the working... More
