Rating El Waha Restaurant Café, Marrakech

El Waha, Marrakech: View from rooftop terrace
The biggest asset of El Waha is its rooftop location on Djemaa el Fna, Marrakech main square. Its second is the price of the food. 

Rating El Waha, Marrakech: BBB+ (3,48 points)
  • Location: BBBBB
  • Service: BBB
  • Interior & atmosphere: BB+
  • Food: BBBB-
El Waha is a restaurant slash snack bar located on the Djemaa el Fna square, the very heart of Marrakech. It is a busy market place during day, but turns into a giant food market at dawn. You climb up to its rooftop location, and you have a grand view over the square.

Beef tagine at El Waha
Service at El Waha is OK, nothing more, nothing less.

The rooftop interior is not actually charming in any sense. Plain chairs and tables, no decorative elements. The only asset at El Waha is the wonderful view.

The food at El Waha is inexpensive, but even so, you can get equally cheap and much better food elsewhere by the square.

I ordered a beef tagine, it looked good but it did not have the sweetness and aromas as the tagines served at Chez Bahia just a few yards away.

So visit El Waha for the view, the food was nothing to talk of, but if you end there the good thing is that you will not be ripped off in any way.
