Restaurant Suggestions Please

by mandybailey

Hi All, I'm going to Marrakesh with 4 friends in December. I want to go to a nice restaurant on a Saturday night to celebrate my birthday. I don't mind if it's outside the medina. I'm hoping to find somewhere with traditional Moroccan decor, Moroccan food and a friendly, lively atmosphere... Maybe some music, entertainment and cocktails. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Re: Restaurant Suggestions Please



VT member toonsarah has just uploaded her brilliant Marrakesh page which - in my humble opinion - also includes some excellent restaurant tips as well as tips about places to avoid.

I hope this helps,

You're spoilt for choice!
How much do you want to spend?
A very nice, if expensive, place is Al Stylia. It's in a restored merchants house in the medina. Any taxi driver will be able to take you there.
In the new town Al Fassia is very good and a lot less expensive.
Both will require booking, and it is well to note that most places don't open until 7:30.

that will be more fun if you spend it in the dsert.

Thanks for the responses so far! I don't mind spending around 400 dirhams for 2 courses, extra for drinks.

The key for me is somewhere quite lively where we can have a long meal and enjoy music and have some drinks also. We were thinking of Le Comptoir Darna. Has anyone been? I've read some good reviews elsewhere...

At 400 Dirhams per head you cannot go to Al Stylia, I seem to remember it was D1200 per head for a 5 course set menu.

We definitely couldn't manage 5 courses! :)

There are several palace restaurants that were always the recommended place to go for lavish Moroccan decor and for several courses of food - usually costing about 600-800 dirham a person.

As for cocktails I would recommend the Sheraton Hotel or La Mamounia - both are upmarket but not particularly expensive for drinks - Ive been to Mamounia for martinis in the afternoon and its an excellent opportunity to go check out the fabulous decor and atmosphere - and the Sheraton decor is done in a (surprisingly!) nicely Moroccan flavour.

Yes, Le Contoir Darna is very cool. :)

Happy Birthday and have fun!

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

....and Djemaa el Fna at nightime

by dabuwan

When the sun goes down and the temperature becomes a bit more bearable, the square fills up with any kind of food stalls, street vendors, acrobats, snake charmers etc. The Djemaa el Fna in the evening is the place where everything happens. Many people and many attractions (more or less touristy).

Henna Tattoos

by johnsakura

This is a must. Tattoo yourself with the local J'ma Al-Fna main square. don't pay more than 20 dirhams to a harm tattoo. 2€. od course that if you ant to be nice just pay 30 dirhamns. it's actually up to you.
thats me in 2000 having a henna tattoo.


by alyf1961 about LE CHARLOT

Le Charlot was a lovely cafe/restaurant on Mohammed V Avenue. We had a latte whilst people watching. Prices are very cheap for food and drink in Marrakech and the price of a latte here was about £1.
This cafe has only been recently opened and the decor is based on Charlie Chaplin. The cakes and desserts looked lovely but we had just had lunch.

Built by Sidi Saýd, brother of Vizier (Minister) Bou Ahmed, this 19th-century palace is now an arts-and-crafts museum. The excellent collection of Moroccan antique crafts includes jewelry, local carpets and leatherwork, and pottery from the seaside town of Safi and from Tamegroute, near Zagora. One prize holding is a marble basin with an inscription indicating its 10th-century Cýrdoban origin; the basin, which is sometimes on loan to other museums, was brought to Morocco by the Almoravid sultan Ali ben Youssef for his mosque -- in spite of its decorative eagles and griffins, which defy the Koran's prohibition of artistic representations of living things. At some point during the Saadian dynasty, it found its way to the Ali ben Youssef Medersa and was later moved here. The palace's courtyard is stunning, filled with flowers and cypress trees and furnished with a gazebo and fountain; and the adjacent salons burst with jewelry, daggers, and ornate kaftans. The most extraordinary salon is upstairs, a somber room in the most authentic style of the period: gibs cornices, zellij walls, and an amazing carved-cedar ceiling painted in the zouak style (bright colors in intricate patterns). Guides are available on-site

Ali Ben Youssef Medersa - Urban Students room

by suvanki

Although the room is identical to that of the rural student (see previous tip) The Urban students possesions reflect their relative prosperity.

The number of items is the same, but of a higher quality, for example, the writing desk is more decorative, the candlesticks are brass (those of the rural student were plain wood)
