Restaurants overlooking D'Jemaa al F'na

I know many years ago, backpackers stayed at Hotel CTM which had a cheap restaurant overlooking D'Jemaa al F'na. Are there any such places now? Dinner would be nice but if the food is bad in such places, we can just go for a snack or something to enjoy the view and escape the hustlers for awhile.

Found some terrace cafes/resto's to be pretty awful with plastic furniture/cheap plastic table cloths, tables crammed together giving very little space, smokers within inches whilst trying to eat and waiters ignoring customers. Prices were not a problem but the service was. The best resto I can remember was the Argana which has space but little chance of getting a table overlooking the square.

Ended up going to restaurants elsewhere but going up to Grand Balcon du Cafe Glacier most nights (or Terrasse Panoramique) just for a drink before sunset and watch the spectacle of the square unfold.

Terraces de L'Alhambra, Cafe de France, Argana and Aqua all overlook the square or Cafe Toubkal at street level is good value.
