    I ate at many fabulous and incredibly cheap restaurants. Actually they were more like cafes, but the food was excellent. Couscous is a main staple item in Morocco and you really must try the lamb or chicken variety of it. You should also try fresh squeezed orange juice from one of the local market carts.

    Resto Laayoune: you havent been in Agadir, if you dont eat fish

    by sachara Written Sep 7, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    During my last visit to Agadir my VT-friends said to me, "you havent been in Agadir, if you havent eaten fish". So at my first day they took me to one of the open air fish restaurants close to the port. It was a lifely place, frequented by mainly Moroccan people. It was a nice way to start my stay in Agadir in Moroccan style.

    Favorite Dish: There was a varied choice in all kinds of fish. We didnt make a choice, but the four of us ordered a huge plate of delicious mixed fish, accompanied with vegetables and bread.

    Local Restaurants

    Everywhere along the road in small towns and villages are lots of local restaurants. So it isn't a problem to find a place to have your meal. Many locals have here their lunch as well.

    being en route we stopped often at these places to have our lunch too. The food was fresh, good and cheap. And it'snice to sit in the local ambiance. Often the walls have Moroccan tiles and the interior is painted in pastel colours.

    Favorite Dish: Tajine or couscous.

  • Miami: Ideal for lady diners!

    by denisetraveller Written May 14, 2007

    My sister and my 8 year old nephew found this restaurant a real haven. The staff were very pleasant and the food was good especially the seafood. Tangier was not very hospitable to lone females (modestly dressed) with a child so it was great to chill out in an atmosphere where we were not regarded as suspicious.

    Favorite Dish: We had steaks but observed other diners having fantastic seafood - numerous tables were having seabass in salt and large seafood platters.

    Yet another open air cafe...: Sampling food in the Sooq

    by JamalMorelli Updated Jan 5, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rather than buy a meal, why not just wander around the souq sampling dates, fruit, nuts, sweets...? You easily can get full - and it's a fun way to interact with people in the sooqs, have funny and memorable experiences and try things you might not have even seen had you stuck yourself stricly to the restaurants...

    Free food? Seem like a freeloader? Well, you kinda are anyway. It's Zen, baby.

    Think about it.

    Done?

    Ok. Just relax into it a bit, people won't mind you only sampling if you are appreciative, warm and bit playful. Munch.

    Favorite Dish: Dates and olives will be some of your favorite free samples (esp in Fes)

    Got friends?: Eat in Someone's House rather than a Restaurant

    by JamalMorelli Updated Jan 5, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Eat in Someone's House

    This restaurant is not in any tour book. It is the one you can find by making friends on your trip. You are there as a special guest soaking in the hospitality that is proverbial in Morocco. The food is almost always unique, heavenly and the company is enough to cover any possible culinary weirdness. If there's some improv music for your benefit - lagniappe, boo. If you don't want to leave things to fate: You could host the meal at your own house and even do the cooking (or hire one of the multitudes of working women to do it) - the total experience will be better than any restaurant in Fes, and certainly should be more memorable.

    This is a country where the absolute best things cannot and will not be bought - and this food tip is to be taken if you want to increase your chances of really hitting one of Morocco's gastronomic as well as cultural sweet spots.

    Invite yourself (or Get yourself invited) and Eat in...

    Favorite Dish: It's always a surprise, but if you are lucky enough to get the roast chicken stuffed with nuts, olives and pickled lemon...you hooked up, dawg...

    Pizza Hut: Prepare to spit on this ex-pat (after Pizza Hut)

    by JamalMorelli Updated Jan 5, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I guess it's because no food goes with my hunger like food from my home in Fes, Morocco. And also because the decor and environment for the average Pizza Hut in Morocco looks like Delmonico's in New Orleans (or at least Semolina's).
    To drive home my surprise, it is not like the Pizza Hut in the Lower Ninth of NO, where I lived)

    I will add that I always regret eating here an hour after I am done, feeling of suicide, etc. (but want more in the morning)

    Terrible indian food with an embarassingly high bill, slimy host and commendably gorgeous and romantic surroundings.
    I'd recommend it to no one.

    Favorite Dish: The food was all equally sub-standard. Serving staff were the only good thing about the place.

    Camel Meatballs

    by bananagirl Written Nov 30, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are ever in Meknes, head to the medina and the camel meat butcher. He's written up in the Lonely Planet, and fairly easy to find. He will mince you up some meat, and mix it with onions and herbs, then send you off with his mate to a dude with a grill, who turns your meat into mini koftas, cooks them over an open fire, and serves them to you in flatbread. And it was good. Very tasty. Look for the stall with the little stuffed camel haging over it.

    Harira

    by TheLongTone Updated Oct 21, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite Dish: Harira is a rich and filling spicy soup available from street-vendors. The exact ingredients vary (I'm sure every Morroccan mum has a family recipe).

    Not nearly as ubiquitous as the other street-foods, I always go for a bowl of harira if I see one! A moroccan friend told me it was best eaten early in the morning, when it's freshly made. That was in Fes, and I don't recall having harira there

    Villa De L'Atlas: Local cooking fresh from their farm

    by JamalMorelli Written Oct 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hajja is one of my favorite cooks - don't ask my favorite dish, I'll anything she puts in front of me. The views of the Atlas mountains while I am dining just add a bit more ecstasy to mix.

    Favorite Dish: Today, I'll say - her breakfasts are standing out since I am a fan of eating lots of little things for breakfast rather than one or two huge portions of something.

    The lady in the parking lot - Ville Nouvelle: Here is your chef! (The lady in the parking lot)

    by JamalMorelli Written Sep 15, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the parking lot behind Marche Central in the Ville Nouvelle there are loads of women just hanging out waiting to do housework, including prepare meals. If you are self catering and generally have too damn many questions about what is in your food - buy it at the market and have one of these gals fix it up for you at your place. I am assuming you have a semi-apartment like setting)

    You should not have to pay more than 100 dh for the service.

    Favorite Dish: Obviously, you have some control over how it's gonna taste - so pick your favorite dish and see what you get!

    Chez Ali: Try Chez Ali in Marrakesh

    by Fernandocramos Written Aug 18, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Chez Ali is a typical restaurant in Marrakesh where you can see a show (looks like a Medieval Times in Disney) with dancers, horses, camels and all typical music from Morocco.
    While you get in, you cross in a carpet over hundrets of typical man and woman wearing traditional clothes fropm all over Morocco.
    You see the show and then you go in to a tent for their traditional food : Cuzcuz and Tajine
