There is a wonderful restaurant on the main drag leading to the souks. I forget the name but it was upper scale and most everyone we asked recommended it as the best restaurant in Marrakech. They had private little areas and served great food, liquors and wine. If you are really interested in it , write me and I will contact my colleague in Marrakech

Hi! Do You mean away from the crowds in Djemma el Fnaa and the Medina area or away from the tourist crowds?
Gueliz is the 'French Quarter'or 'Ville Nouvelle' which has many restaurants and bars of varying prices. These are popular with local business people and holidaying Moroccans also.I found some very cheap 'snack' places where the local workers eat, off Bvd M5.I also ate at Le Lounge. I would have liked to have eaten at Al - Fassia, which is recommended in guide books for its local cuisine. Hivernage and the Palmieries are also 'off the crowded path'
There are plenty of mini /supermarkets around Gueliz to stock up on 'picnic food',snacks,beer, wine etc.

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

Mint tea.

by belgianchocolate


Did you noticed that the moroccans serve your
mint tea in a special way?
No , I don't mean the nice colorful glasses they
use for serving the tea.

When they pour the tea into the little glasses they
got the kettle as high as possible. The meaning of
thuis ritual is to make as many little bubbles
on the tea as possible. This is for good luck!
Many bubbles brings many luck.

Now you can drink the tea...use your thumb and
index finger to hold the glass in order to
handle the heat.

Bon appetit!

Air travel

Air travel for me was not a problem. We had to stop at Cassablanca airport to change planes, but my poor friend who is darker of colour were held back by the authorities accusing her of being a Marrokan that stole a passport. We had quite a problem

Djemma el Fna

by flytheworld

Marrakesh's Djemma el Fna is a large public square in the center of the city. The Djemma el Fna is busy day and night with locals and visitors alike, and is a must-see for anyone in Marrakesh. During the day there are orange juice vendors, people selling dates and nuts, snake charmers, and many other attractions. There are restaurants and shops lining the edge of the square, and at night the center of the Djemma el Fna is home to lots of vendors selling grilled meats.

Musee de Marrakech

by mafi_moya

Even without the interesting displays the museum would be well worth a look as it's contained in beautiful 19th century Mnebhi Palace, complete with fountains in the covered courtyard and colourful tiled zellij mosaics on the walls. The golden colour scheme and glass dome roof make it distinctive from most other riads. After independence the palace became Marrakech's first school for girls and only became a museum in 1997.

Displays of paintings, photos, textiles and other artworks are housed in halls leading off from the central courtyard. The old hammam (baths) and kitchen are also used for exhibitions. If you're tired after a long day sightseeing then this is a wonderfully relaxed and cool place to chill out and you can slump into the big comfy chairs and watch a video about the city. There's also a very nice terrace cafe and a souvenir shop with some great books.

Marrakech, Maroc

by tdumont

"Marrakech"

Marrakech (مراكش marrākiš), connue sous le nom de « perle du sud » ou de "ville rouge", est une ville du Maroc du sud-ouest dans les collines des montagnes de l'Atlas (coordonnées : 31° 37’ 60’’ N, 8° 0’ 0’’ W).

La ville a été fondée en 1062 par Youssef Ibn Tachfin, premier souverain de la dynastie des Almoravides. Dans le passé, le Maroc était connu en orient sous le nom de Marrakech, cette appellation est d'ailleurs toujours en cours en Iran, le nom Maroc provient lui même de la déformation de la prononciation espagnole de Marrakech : Marruecos.
