Rotisserie Mamounia: great value
Had a salad, quarter roast chicken with French fries, boiled rice and some kind of herb risotto, all for 35 MAD – say €3.50 (Coke included).
Service a bit grumpy, but I put that down to the language issue (his French, not mine). Food excellent and place clearly popular with locals. No alcohol. Locals manage to have lots of fun without it…
I think they only serve roast chicken!
Favorite Dish: Tough one...maybe the chicken.

Palais du Poulet: excellent
The name translates as “chicken palace” so I just had to give it a try. It’s in the new town.
Had a quarter roast chicken with French fries, boiled rice and some kind of herb risotto, all for 28 MAD – say €2.60 (Coke included). Ate sitting outside on pavement (under cover) – yes, on 26 December.
Service slick, food excellent and place clearly popular with locals. No alcohol. Locals manage to have lots of fun without it…
Favorite Dish: Ummm...need to think about this one.
I'll go for the chicken!

Pizza Hut Meknes: Bad & unfriendly service and poor food
We were with threee people just wanting to have a pizza, in a quility we know. My Mum wanted some pasta, but...
1. The young man serving was not unfriendly, but he treated us not like being welcome.
2. When we placed order it took a while then he explained that the past my Mum wanted was not availeble. From the 6 pasta on the menue only two were available.
3. The pan pizza was not as tasty and crispy as we 2 were used.
4. The young man ignored us for 10 minutes so we could not order a dessert.
5. The desert we wanted was not available.
6. Half of the desert were not.
7. Over all we had the feeling that as foreigners we were not welcome. Tables with local people were served quicker and friendlier.
Riad Felloussia: Wonderful Camel Tagine
We just loved the quite atmosphere in the riad. It was great to be up on the roofs and watch the busy city below. After the scorching hot temperatures it was great to cool off in the evening.
Favorite Dish: We had the special dish, Camel Tagine. We actually saw the camel butcher during our visit of the medina. It was served with some local green vegetables that we didn't get the name of. The young lady who got the meal ready for us was amazing. There were so many things to try. It was almost too much but we managed !

Collier de la Colombe: Excellent Resturant
This is a great place to eat moroccan food. It is on the high end, a meal will coast you 90 dh. The hotel has a nice of the ville Nouvelle. The resturant has signs to direct you to it, You'll see it every where. The decore is Authentic and local and the setting is good.
Breakfast in Ville Nouvelle
Breakfast wasn't included at Hotel Palace so we wandered around the Ville Nouvelle looking for a suitable café. We picked a small tea-room on Avenue Hassan II. Somehow they managed to get our order completely wrong. Ruth got normal tea instead of mint tea while they brought us two pain aux raisins rather than croissants. As it had taken a while for the food we decided to say nothing and stick with it. I don’t think this café had a name but it’s easy to find: it’s on the section of Avenue Hassan II between the Central Market and the Place Ifriquia.
Having had a great lunch for 60 Dh between us at a cheap, local café in Moulay Idriss, we opted for something similar in Meknes. Restaurant Marhaba has been given a good write up in our guidebook and it was very busy when we got there, always a good sign. The prices were very low and the food was fine.
For starter we had Harira (Moroccan soup) and a plate of Berber bread - all for 4 Dh. That’s about 25 pence sterling! Many of the locals had this as their entire meal and I’m not surprised as it was very filling. We shared a plate of beef brochettes for main course with a side order of chips. The brochettes were excellent though the chips were a bit cold - probably the only disappointing part of the meal. With drinks included the bill came to 48 Dh, beating our excellent value lunch.
