Morocco Restaurants

  • Local Cuisine

    4 out of 5 stars

    Marrakesh Restaurants

    Moroccan cuisine often makes it into the top ten of many world food lists, but for many travelers the diet of tajine and couscous can get a bit monotonous. It doesn't help that Moroccan food is generally rather plain - lacking in sauces, spices and even salt. Ordering a turkey tajine can result in several large hunks of turkey meat cooked in its...

    Marrakesh Restaurants

    Djamaa el Fna is the best choice for dinner at night if you like a good atmosphere. The square has dozens of food stands serving good local dishes in an atmosphere that is out of this world. A stay in Marrakesh is not complete unless you have spend at least one evening here. I love their cous cous.

    Marrakesh Restaurants

    The cafe first rose to fame in Peter Mayne's A Year in Marrakech. The writer spent many afternoons sitting in the cafe watching the festivities in the Djemaa el Fna, It was the focus of his early days in the city. It later became a popular place for tourists, offering some of the best views in the city, especially at sunset as the square changes...

    by Mary Mimouna, Marrakech Restaurant Reviewer Reviewed July 17, 2006 No longer do tourists have to wonder where they can get delicious and safe food at reasonable prices, in an air-conditioned, non-smoking, child-friendly atmosphere! Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, McDonald's is open from 9 AM to Midnight, Sunday through Thursday. On Friday...

    Marrakesh Restaurants

    Having eaten Moroccan food almost exclusively for 14 days we opted for something slightly different when we got back to Marrakech from the Atlas Mountains. There was a restauant on Rue Bab Agnaou, near our hotel, called Mabrouka which served typical Moroccan food as well as some western cuisine, so we went here for lunch. We both had margarita...

    Marrakesh Restaurants

    The Loft tries to bring a bit of Manhattan to Morocco. The decor is relaxed, with lots of wood, exposed brick and soft lighting. The service is friendly, if slow, and multilingual. The menu is a patchwork of French, with a little American, Italian and Moroccan thrown in. All the food was good, if a little expensive for what you get. The restaurant...

  • Disappointed..... Sidi Ifni.

    Serving staff were very friendly and helpful, the tagine in itself was good, but there was a distinct lack of vegetables to accompany the meat. Finished the meal disappointed. They did allow us to bring beer in from our hotel as long as was in a bag on the floor.Tagines were at 35 Dh, Couscous a little more.

  • PALATIAL

    Stylia is housed in possibly the grandest home you will be allowed to in to dine in Africa. The history of this amazing building dates back to the 1400’s and has been described at a minor Royal Palace and the original home of an important judge. Every surface in this building is a work of art. Beautiful fountains bubble away in grand rooms with...

  • Terrace Restaurants

    There are several terrace restaurants in Marrakech that overlook the Djemmaa el Fna, and are therefore popular with tourists for their views over the square. The terraces are either in the open air on the rooftop of the restaurant, or are on an upper level. All of the restaurants serve full meals, but many people like to sit on the terraces with...

    We were travelling the pass, heading from Imlil to Touradant when our driver pulled in for us to have lunch.It's basic! There was little choice of food ---a lamb tajine with bread and salad. To drink there was water and mint tea.HOWEVER...the views pre-post low clouds were amazing!Do look at my photos of the van jacked up on concrete/stones!Oh, you...

  • how much to pay to eat out or in

    Id do that for one night (menu in your hotel when you arrive), and then eat out elsewhere for other experiences elsewhere. A big thing about visiting Morocco is experiencing the food! Moroccan cuisine is well regarded as a cuisine in its own right and though the locals may tend to have only a few main dishes in their normal routine there is...

    These restaurants are a great opportunity to try typical moroccan food right on the centre of the most important and fascinating place in whole city of Marrakesh, the Square Jma El-Fna). You have street vendors with dozens of different dishes which you may choose just by looking at them exposed on the restaurant facilities. You sit in front of the...

  • Tourist Restaurants

    When I traveled to Morocco, I went on a guided tour in which meals were included. This meant that we ate every night in tourist restaurants that cater mainly to group tours and independent travelers to a lesser extent. These restaurants feature local food and a cultural show that might include such forms of entertainment as singing, dancing, and...

  • Essaouira - Good cheap menus.

    This is another pretty cheap place to eat within easy walk of the port and the shopping area. We ate here twice as it was less than 100 metres from the Riad Al Fath where we were staying, and were not disappointed. An atypical Moroccon place with high ceilings, and prints of French water colour artist Charles Kerivel on the walls, well known in...

  • Essaouira - Superb ambiance.

    This restaurant has been recommended in the "Le Routard" French guide book since a couple of years and quite frankly it did live up to the recommendation, both for its food and the nice family atmosphere. Mellow lighting , rugs strewn on the floor and pleasant smiles from everyone, made for a very pleasant evening. All 4 of us took the "Couscous...

  • Oualidia - Good food but not cheap.

    The choice of restaurants being rather limited in Oualidia, this was our choice being not far from the Tennis-Club. The food was above-average with a nice bottle of wine, but came to 200Dh(18 euros) per person, which for Morocco is exagerated. The owner is a nice French woman, very pleasant, but this perhaps accounts for the prices.

  • Taroudannt - Cheap and friendly.

    Service was very friendly and cheerful, even when our women made them go up and down the stairs twice to check on the temperature and wind. Finally chose downstairs, but the terrace does give a very good view over the main square.I had brochettes and fries at 45 DH, rest of menu is around he same price.

  • Oualidia - Best in Morocco ???

    This is a very special place. Might not rank with the 5-star hotels in Marrakech or Agadir but for quality/price cannot be beaten. 300DH (around 27 euros) for a 6 or 7 course meal of all local foods. Have a look at the menu below. There is a cheaper menu at 135 DH (12.5 euros) and of course a la carte.UPDATE APRIL 2010 - Was very disappointed to...

  • Good and cheap menu. Tafraoute.

    The restaurant breathed cleanliness and was quite full, including locals. Took some time to be served but was worth it, certainly at the price.3 course menu including a lamb couscous was 60 Dh.

  • Along the road

    Oasis Cafés are a chain of restaurants attached to Afriquia gas stations along main highways. They are clean and pleasant, and the food is good. There was even a children’s playground. We ate in several Oasis Cafes during our travels in Morocco.

    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.

    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. There was a varied...

  • Ideal for lady diners!

    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. We had steaks but observed other...

    The wild ambience is what will make this special for you - prices are all obvious. Careful about accepting sides that don't come with your main dish - you will be charged, you have been warned.

  • Sampling food in the Sooq

    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?...

    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...

    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...

    Terrible indian food with an embarassingly high bill, slimy host and commendably gorgeous and romantic surroundings. I'd recommend it to no one. The food was all equally sub-standard. Serving staff were the only good thing about the place.

  • Camel Meatballs

    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...

  • Harira

    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...

  • Local cooking fresh from their farm

    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. 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...

    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...

  • Tajine by the street

    Tajine is a local dish and I enjoyed it while I was in MOrocco. The one you see in pics were from a local restaurant. It costs DH18. Now I really miss it.

  • Pea Soup

    I enjoy pea soup as much as my capucinno. It is rich and fill up your stomach easily, together with a piece of bread. It cost about DH2.5-6, depending where you have it. Highly recommended. For vegetarian too.

  • Coffee Break

    I enjoy having capucinno and latte at least 3-4 cups a day. A cup of coffee and break is a must to start a day for me in Morocco. Thanks for the influence of Europeans, I can have coffee anywhere I go. It costs about DH6-9, depending the location. I always find a good location where I can sit down and enjoy a great view of the street. Just watch...

  • Local restaurant

    Among other local food, Tajine and Couscous are the main dishes. I enjoyed them together with the peas soup so much that I had them almost every day when I was in Morocco. Depends where you eat, the lowest price I paid for Tajine was Dh18.

  • Tajine

    You should try tajine - this word goes both for a traditional dish as well as a special pot for making the dish. It is traditional and popular so you don't have to go just to one special place.It looks like a huge pot as i mentioned before, and in the middle of it there is meat (in our case it was chicken) and different vegetables are placed on it...

  • One of Our Best Meals in Morocco

    This was a new restaurant, we were the only patrons there at the time. There was no menu the waiter/cook told us what he was making that day. The food was amazing although it was a little a bit of a wait for it since it was all made fresh. One other thing is the restaurant was spotless. We loved the berber omlette because the vegetables were so...
