dinner reservations in Marrkesh

by marktynernyc

A couple guide books recommend not having the hotel/riad/etc make your dinner reservations for you because of commissions being added on. Anybody have any advice regarding this issue - I've read about guides directing tourists to stores where the guide gest a commision on any sales numerous times. I understand I'll be in Marrkesh and I won't blend in and will be charged for an english menu. Any thoughts?

In our experience, there is no discrimination against foreigners over prices, but here is a problem in securing a booking in the best restaurants. I'd let the hotel/ riad make the booking.

thanks Robine - any restaurant suggestions? The owner of the riad I'm staying at felt many of the places I asked about deserved a "bad critic" and suggested i wait tillI get there and he would make the suggestions / reservations.

I have to say that we didn't find anything outstanding (tho' we failed to secure a reservation at our top choice). I'd trust the riad.

You pay the price on the menu or à la carte. so I don't see how a guide can get a commission on a fixed public price

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

the local bread man

by angiebabe

Traditionally a village or a town will have a central bakehouse where the women take the bread theyve kneaded and made themselves to be cooked by a guy with an oven!

Its the same here in the Marrakech medina - there will be several of course - for a small fee the service of baking the bread for local families and for the shops in the area who will require a supply of bread for their customers - even then they may have their own women cooks who will likewise make their own bread and take it on down to simply be baked.

When I took this photo on the sudden sighting while walking past there were shouts that sounded unhappy at the photo - I would say on looking at the photo its the fact that the bread is being placed on the floor from the oven before being placed somewhere else more appropriate....!

CTM

by Firestar24

CTM are a cheap, reliable and comfortable way to make your way around Morocco. Buses are air-conditioned. Seats are allocated so there's no over-crowding and timetables are accurate. The journey is broken up with cigarette / food / toilet stops. Perfect!

EAT AT THE STALLS
After sunset...

by SirRichard

EAT AT THE STALLS
After sunset (19:00) the Djema ekl Fnaa Square gets full of street stalls where you can eat a great variety of local food. There is some delicious food being served there, and terribly cheap, but I must admit there are stalls where I wouldn't seat too happily!

Bab Agnaou

by MM212

Bab Agnaou is the most imposing gate in Marrakech. It is also second only to the Koutoubia Minaret as the architectural symbol of the city. The beautifully ornate gate was built in the 12th century during Almohad dynasty and, for a long time, was the main access into the Kasbah, the fortified palace neighbourhood to the south of the Medina. Two towers originally stood on either side of the gate, but were destroyed long ago. Unlike most of Marrakech, the gate was built with blue-grey stones from Guéliz Mountain, rather than the reddish-pink stones used elsewhere, but overtime, pink dust accumulated over the grey stone giving the gate reddish tones. The origins of the gate's current name ("Agnaou") are unknown, but it replaced the old name Bab al-Qasr (Palace Gate).

Marakkesh

by travel_passion25

"Marakkesh by night"

This is place Djema El Fna. A vivid square full of music, sounds, colors and faces. Any kind of happening takes place there and everybody is eager to experience the ultimate morocco either by eating a traditonal kous-kous or by watching folklore oriental shows or just by wandering in the souks. In the souks people are selling their trade and you can smell any kind of colorful spices!!
