The Rabha Kedima is a square located just to the North of the Jemaa al Fnaa in Marrakech, Morocco. Today it is one of the most lively and atmospheric parts of the old town with colourful stall selling carpets, basket ware, hand woven and knitted garments, herbs and culinary spices as well as traditional herbal medications.

Historically slaves were sold in the Rabha Kedima with regular auctions which continued right into the early part of the 20th century.

The aptly named Grande Cafe de la Poste is located in the very Grand ex colonial post office building in the new town of Guiliez, Marrakech. Fine European style food and superb service under the supervision of Maitre D. Eric make this a real favourite.

Try the stunning Calamari salad starter!  The Steak Frites is as good as any cafe on the the Grande Boulevards in Paris. A three course meal at La Poste will cost about 400 dirhams per person, one of the more expensive restaurants in Marrakech, but we feel well worth it.

Any taxi will take you to Grande Cafe de la Poste which is a five minute ride from the Medina. From Marrakech Riad Papillon or Marrakech Riad Cinnamon take a taxi from Dar el Bashah or walk to the west through Bab Doukala.
