To enjoy really the atmosphere of Djamaa El Fna square, you have to stop at a stand at least to eat one little thing! There are a lot of these "climatised restaurant" and they all have numbers to recognize them. It is difficult to choose as the food is quite the same everywhere, so the best is to find one that gives you the most favors! Well, that is what happened with us! I don't know if it was because I put kohl on my eyes this evening, but at the nr12, they said that I could eat there for free! So my friends and I stopted there and we had a wonderful evening with Adil (the chief of the stand) and his crew! The food was delicious! We were really spoiled :-) As soon as our glas of tea was empty, they wanted to fill it again and again and again...
Favorite Dish: The french fries are delicous... not as good as the best ones (Chez Antoine) in Brussels but though, we could not resist to come again another evening to eat them!
If you have an iron stomach try the stalls in the main square. Opposite the fruit juice sellers (which are very good and cheap) you'll find a plethora of cooked vegetables with bread, I remember being served peppers, aubergines, rice, cous-cous....
Just walk into the main square during the evening and the entire place will be alive with food stalls and shows. Kids boxing, snake charmers, you name it, there here. Just walk around and find a bench, sit down, and order from whatever is on showcase. The best choice are kababs and couscous.
EAT AT THE STALLS
After sunset (19:00) the Djema ekl Fnaa Square gets full of street stalls where you can eat a great variety of local food. There is some delicious food being served there, and terribly cheap, but I must admit there are stalls where I wouldn't seat too happily!
Fantastic food, all fresh, great prices and so much to choose from
Favorite Dish: The snails were great as well as the seafood
We love a fresh-squeezed OJ and for only 10 dirham we have to take advantage! Very refreshing and the vendors were great with our kids!
Well, you can nearly buy every sweet on the street.
Catherine and the kids love them but I find them too sticky and I don't feel like washing my hands after every bit of candy.
You can get eggs moroccan style, lots of local traditional pastry, with orange juice, milk shakes, homemade yogurts, bread and cheese, mint tea. sounds great to start the day doenst it?
This is how you can make a meal on the main square Jamaa Al-Fna. Just ask for lots of things and delight yourself eating and drinking mint tea along the way.
At that square there are a lot of street vendors where you can eat cus cus, and lot kind of meat and fish. It's good and there is an excellent ambient with the cuisiners and waiters.
Hawker stalls (e.g. on Djemaa Square)
The hawker stalls around the markets are a good and cheap treat for everyone who is not too sensible with his stomach...
searching for traditional Moroccan food? take a seat at the food stalls on the Djemaa el Fna, the best place to eat out in Marrakesh
