    Kosybar: Let down by the service.

    by CDM7 Updated Dec 7, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant is situated in a small square close to the El Badi Palace.Upon arrival we were asked if we would like to choose a table,as the restaurant is divided into several rooms plus a roof terrace.Once seated it was some time before our order was taken,although we were given bread and olives.The sole fillet that i had was tasty and nicely cooked.
    Don't come here if you are short of time,as the service was slow all evening,and even after asking for the bill it was another 15 minutes before it arrived.

    STYLIA RESTAURANT: PALATIAL

    by DAO Updated Jan 1, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    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 amazing white Tadellakt plaster walls. Amazing chandeliers reflect onto amazing wooden doors, interior balconies and beautiful carpets. As if highly decorated walls were not enough, there is an amazing amount of colour from multi-colored glass work embedded in the walls and ceilings. The final touches are the amazing Zellij tiles that just top of the absolute feeling of grandeur while you listen to the musicians and enjoy your meal.

    I accidentally found Le Stylia in 1998, but they were fully booked. They did let me in to see the wondrous interiors before the first guests arrived. I found them again when I was showing my Mum around Marrakech in 2010. We were able to book a table for the next night and really enjoyed our experience. I had some nice beer, a samosa like starter, Lamb and Zucchini flavoured with cinnamon and of course – couscous.

    The food is above average. For some reason this makes people give poor reviews. That would be to miss the point. Your surroundings are the real treat! This is an amazing palace and you get to enjoy great service in a grand style. The tables are laid with fine china, tablecloths and crystal. Your musicians are both talented and soothing. The food is good, the beers cold and the coffee is great afterwards.

    My own Mum said – while we were still dinning – this is a once in a lifetime meal.

    That’s right – my Mum recommends you dine here !

    If you are here for a few days, stop by in the early afternoon, knock on the door until someone arrives, and get booked in.


    Open only for dinner - Monday to Sunday From 08:00 PM To 12:00 AM

    La Boheme Restaurant Marrakech Morocco: Best view over Djamaa El Fna

    by aussirose Updated Dec 28, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We arrived at our Riad in the Medina in Marrakech and the lovely staff suggested a nice restaurant to spend our first evening overlooking the market place. We followed our guide and arrived on the rooftop of La Boheme Restaurant overlooking the central square Djamaa El fna.

    This restaurant was expensive but we thoroughly enjoyed our meal that was cooked before us and washed down by a few glasses of local beer.

    From here we had an awesome view over the Medina which enabled us to take some fantastic photos and also to enjoy the sound of evening prayers and then view the full moon coming up in the horizen and the market place coming alive.

    Narwama: Good Fushion Thai~Moroccan

    by DSwede Updated Jul 18, 2011

    We had eaten street foods for several days and have to admit that the foods were starting to all taste the same and we were struggling for something unique. Also, the noise of the streets and/or the busy cafes can be a bit overwhelming at times.

    That's when we found the inner courtyard at Narwama. The Moroccan~Thai fushion restaurant is set back in the quiet courtyard near the central market areas. The tables are set with white linens and there is a properly themed contemporary oriental music playing softly. The open air courtyard has a fountain that has both tumbling water, but also a live flame.

    It may be a pricier than the street and slightly more than other cafes, but the food was wonderful and the overall experience well worth it.

    Favorite Dish: After eating tagines for days on end, I was skeptical that we'd find one that surpassed our previous experiences, but we did. The pear mutton tagine was fantastic.

    The couscous and Thai noodles were also very good. If you care for wine, they do serve but prices are a bit high.

    Nid'Cigogne: Nid'Cigogne - in the Kasbah

    by sue_stone Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lunch time one day found us close to the Saadian Tombs and all of the guidebooks recommended Nid'Cigogne. Ok, so that doesn't mean that it would be a good meal, but hey, it was close and we were hungry.

    The thing that appealed to me about Nid'Cigogne was that you could apparently dine with a great view of some nesting storks - and the books were right. We sat up on the 3rd level of the restaurant and our table looked right across at a nest with two storks who put on quite a show for us during our meal with their dancing and beak-clacking performances.

    So, the restaurant is split over 3 levels, and there are a couple of flights of stairs to access it from the street. We got a lack lustre welcome on arrival and very slow, disinterested service throughout the meal.

    Favorite Dish: The menu consisted of light meals like sandwiches & salads, and some more traditional fare such as tajines and couscous.

    We ordered a Beef Tajine and some Chicken & Vegetable Couscous to share. The couscous was ok, with some big pieces of vegetables on top, but the tajine wasn't very good.

    Summing up, the food was disappointing, and expensive by Moroccan standards, but it was worth it for the storks!

    Cafe Bougainvillea: Cafe Bougainvillea

    by sue_stone Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cafe Bougainvillea is a tourist friendly cafe that was located close to our Riad. After several hours of exploring the souqs we were in dire need of a nice cup of mint tea and an escape from the craziness, and this seemed like a good option.

    The cafe is located down some stairs from the street, in a Riad. The main seating area is in the bright central courtyard, and there is another seating area off to the side with comfortable looking lounges for a relaxing evening meal.

    Favorite Dish: The cafe serves up a range of food - from pizza to Moroccan classics. We just wanted to have some afternoon tea, so both ordered some Mint Tea and one serve of the Petit Fours to share. The tea was refreshing and the little biscuits/cakes were the perfect size snack.

    Cafe Bougainvillea is an a good place to escape from the masses for a while, though may be a bit touristy for some people.

    La Maison Arabe Hotel – Morning Tea: La Maison Arabe Hotel – Morning Tea

    by sue_stone Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A busy morning of sight-seeing meant a dire need for a mint tea. We walked by a posh Riad that I had read about and I remembered that they had a tea room inside that was open to the public.

    La Maison Arabe started out as a fancy restaurant back in the 1940’s, and is today also a luxury hotel. The hotel runs cooking courses and also offers morning and afternoon tea to guests and passers-by.

    We were seating in a lovely, cosy sitting room while our morning tea was prepared. It was so peaceful – a world away from the goings-on outside the Riad’s door.

    Favorite Dish: I had a mint tea and Alison had an espresso. They also bought us out a plate of delicious looking and tasting biscuits/pastries, which were the perfect accompaniment.

    This was a pretty expensive way to have morning tea by Moroccan standards, though still only a couple of pounds per person. Well worth it to have a look inside a luxury Riad.

    Riad L'Orangeraie: Riad L'Orangeraie - dinner at our Riad

    by sue_stone Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On our first night in Marrakech we had dinner at our hotel, Riad L'Orangeraie. We had to tell the Riad prior to our arrival in Marrakech that we would like dinner that evening.

    There is no restaurant as such, you just choose where you would like to dine within the Riad grounds - be it in the courtyard by the pool, on the roof terrace, or in the lounge area, for example. We chose to eat sitting in the small seating area just off the courtyard, opposite our room.

    The table was laid out for us with scattered rose petals, and a large bottle of water. We sat back and relaxed, waiting for our meal to arrive.

    Favorite Dish: First up were the 'salads', which were not your traditional salads, but instead were three hot vegetable dishes, all really delicious. There was grilled capsicum/pepper rolled and stuffed with a fruit chutney; Broad beans in a tasty sauce; and char-grilled eggplant/aubergine with tomato and cheese.

    Next up was a Chicken Tajine and a big plate of couscous, though we were already nearly full from the salads and couldn't eat it all. We had purchased some wine duty free, so enjoyed a glass with our meal.

    There was also dessert - orange slices served with cinnamon and dates. I wasn't a big fan of this, but Alison though it was great.

    Le Dragon D'Or: Popular place with atmosphere

    by BarryBraund Updated Oct 10, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is described as a Chinese and Vietnamese restaurant. We opted for traditional Chinese food, which was plentiful and tasty.
    A wide selection of dishes, many that I have never tried before. The service was slick despite being very busy the night we were there. Four of us ate there in our group and everyone enjoyed their meal.
    The atmosphere was comfortable and relaxed. Like most of Morocco, nothing is hurried. It takes longer to see the bill than be served.
    If you like Chines food, this place comes well recommended.

    Favorite Dish: We all had fairly simple dishes, but well presented and they tasted good. Chicken with ginger and spring onion with egg fried rice was my choice and after trying various more adventurous dishes over the the last few days, I was ready for something I would recognise.

    Le Comptoir darna: Belly dancers and more

    by coccinella169 Written Feb 7, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a rather decadent place in one of the most posh areas of Marrakech. The casino and some bars and discos are close by. Reservation is a must, especially on the weekends. Downstairs you`ll find the restaurant, upside there is a bar, where you can take a drink after dinner. Food was really good and not too expensive for european standards - around 35 EUR pp including a cocktail. At around 10 p.m. there is also a bellydancer show.

    Le Comptoir Darna: Beautiful Restaurant

    by mandybailey Written Dec 21, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The decor and ambience is what makes this such an amazing restaurant. The food is good but not as good as we had in our riad. It's a complete experience restaurant; good food, music, belly dancing, drinking in a very athetically pleasing venue. A cool young-ish crowd, clearly a place that people go for a special occasion, as I had done for my birthday. The waiters sang happy birthday several times through the night and they bought me the most beautiful rose when they sang to me with a slice of delicious tiramisu!

    The service here is spot on, very attentive.

    Favorite Dish: I had the lamb shoulder for 2 which was delicious, but be warned, it can actually feed 4 people! Far too much food if you've had bread and starters beforehand. Try the Mojitos too!

    Les Lauriers Blancs: Home cooking

    by toonsarah Updated Nov 20, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Knowing that we would arrive fairly late, we emailed in advance to arrange to eat dinner at our riad, Les Lauriers Blancs. Many riads provide dinner but you usually need to reserve a table in advance as they are small family-run businesses and need to know how many guests (if any) to expect. After that first evening we ate here again on three other occasions, partly because my broken foot meant going out for dinner a bit of an effort, partly because on one occasion at least we were expecting to return late from an excursion, and partly because the meals were pretty good – certainly the best we had during our stay in Marrakesh. On each day of our stay we were asked at breakfast time if we wanted to dine in – the menu was chalked up on a board by the kitchen so we could easily see what was on offer before making our decision.

    Favorite Dish: My favourite of the several dishes we had here was the “calamar de tagine”, one of Katy’s signature dishes. It was rich and spicy and I was happy to help myself to a second (possibly even a third!) helping from the generous bowl brought to our table. I also especially liked the chicken tagine cooked with Morocco’s traditional citrons confits which were the most delicious things I tasted in all my time there! Chris’s favourite was a beef tagine, and we both liked the home-made raspberry ice cream :-)

    To accompany our meal we could choose beer (a local lager-style beer called “Special” – it wasn’t, but it was perfectly acceptable!) or wine, which was again a Moroccan one and available as red, white or rose. I had the red on several occasions and rather liked it.

    Prices were reasonable by our English standards though dearer than the restaurants we checked out around the Djamaa el Fna – but judging by the one dinner we had there, the superior quality was worth the extra cost. We paid €22 per person for the three courses, and a glass of beer or wine cost €3 (though we never managed to have only the one glass!) If you’d like an aperitif there is Ricard, Kir, whiskey etc on offer at €5 each, and a pot of mint tea to wash it all down costs €1.50 per person.

    I didn’t ask if the riad accepts bookings from non-residents as many do, but if you’re staying in the area it would be worth checking as you’re likely to have a lovely evening and delicious meal here.

    Borj el Koutoubia: Have lunch in a rooftopgarden!

    by li-anne Written Feb 16, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hidden away in the busy Rue de Bab Agnaou, is this cafe-restaurant with a pleasant rooftop garden. Away from the husle and the busle of this living city you can enjoy a lunch or dinner here amidst the green.
    They serve tajines, sanwiches, omelettes, hamburgers, pancakes, and pizza.
    We discovered this restaurant only because someone was standing on the street with flyers of this restaurant.

    Favorite Dish: What I liked most here was the tranquility and the fresh lime juice. (jus de citron pressé) for 14 dirhams for a big glass.

    Too bad I don't have any pictures of the rooftop restaurant itself, but believe me it's worth going there.
    From the garden restaurant you can see the Bab Agnaou street, the Koutoubia mosk and the square.

    Aqua: Nice restaurant overlooking Djemaa el Fna

    by li-anne Written Feb 16, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We decided to have dinner from a terrace of one of the restaurants at the Djemna el Fna square to have a nice look at the square itself at night.
    We saw a sign of the modern looking restaurant Aqua. From the terrace you have a magnificient view on the square an all the people, the foodstalls and just everything.

    Favorite Dish: There is a whide choice of western dishes, like toasts, pizza and pasta.
    Nothing special, but everything tastes well.
    They can serve; couscous and tajine, pizza, sandwich, salades, crepes, desserts and glaces.
    It's a little bit overpriced, but expect to pay extra for the view.

    Nice detail; while we were here in july, the terrace was equipped with small nebulisers that spreaded a real soft and refreshing mist every few minutes. How delightfull!
