Located in the north-eastern reaches of Jemaa al-Fnaa you will discover Les Terrasses de l’Alhambra. The Café Restaurant occupies an entire corner of the northern side of Jemaa al-Fnaa, making it easy to find if this is your first visit to the bustling centre of the red city of Marrakech.
Les Terrasses de l’Alhambra’s prime location also makes it an ideal location to relax on the open terraces and observe the daily goings on below in the square.
Within Moroccan culture the ceremony of drinking tea or coffee is a sacred and important aspect of society and you will discover Les Terrasses de l’Alhambra to be no stranger to this tradition. Locally sourced mint leaves comprise the key ingredient to Moroccan mint tea, which is the perfect refreshment for enjoying under the intense rays of the sun.
Alternatively if you are missing the tastes of home, Les Terrasses de l’Alhambra also offer an ample range of European dishes and drinks. Depending on where home you call home, you can enjoy a cup of Earl grey tea for 20 Dirhams (£1.51) or a plate of French crêpes for 25 Dirhams (£1.89).
You will still find traditional Moroccan cuisine at Les Terrasses de l’Alhambra. Prices are slightly higher than some of the neighbouring snack bars as the Café Restaurant operates in a more up-market setting. Lamb or chicken tajines are available for 75 Dirhams (£5.66) and a Moroccan salad can be ordered for 55 Dirhams (£4.15).
Les Terrasses de l’Alhambra is but walking distance from the recently opened luxury Riad Star and is one of the many ideal locations in Jemaa al-Fnaa to recharge your batteries before venturing out and seeing what you can discover!
