Marrakech: An overview - Part 23

Moroccan Food, Restaurants and Nightlife – continued


If you want to have a more refined Moroccan experience over a pleasant dinner then try one of the places listed below.

Le Foundouk is a stylish restaurant which serves French and Moroccan cuisine. An old courtyard building has been given an update complete with leather seating and a magnificent chandelier. A small bar area and a stunning roof terrace provide the perfect spot for a drink while waiting for a table.

Dar Moha gives you a taste of Moroccan cuisine as construed by Marrakech’s celebrity chef, Moha Fedal. Lunch and dinner are set menus but the food is unlike anything you will eat elsewhere. Gnawa musicians will add to the ambience and perform by the poolside during summer.

Al Fassia is completely run by women and it offers à la carte choice rather than a set menu. The restaurant has an attractive garden and what it lacks in flair it more than makes up for with its terrific food.

Chez Chegrouni is a modest restaurant where the waiter will take your order on a paper napkin. However ,the food that is served here is both tasty and very affordable. The atmosphere is terri? c which is thanks to its ringside view of the Jemaa El Fna.

Le Tobsil offers you a luxurious dining experience. It occupies two levels of an old house around a central court. Now here where it differs, it is lit up by candlelight and has no menu. The waiters just deliver a seemingly endless succession of dishes. These include but are not limited to vegetarian meze, pastilla, tajines, couscous and pastries. It’s a different way to dine and worth trying if you have the time.

Kechmara is the place to go when you couldn’t possibly face another tajine. The Continental menu includes salads, meat in sauces and desserts. The atmosphere is light and there’s a rooftop terrace

Dar Yacout is a restaurant that is famous an attraction. Much of its reputation rests on its interior, a striking mix of the traditional and the bizarre, with flowering columns and quaint candy-striped replaces. You sit at the mother of pearl inset tables and are presented with the limitless set menu.

Comptoir is located in a two-storey villa and is possibly the best location for a night out in town. It’s always packed and the noise levels are loud. While the food is good, with both Moroccan and French dishes. The atmosphere makes Comptoir memorable, especially on weekend nights when diners are entertained by belly dancers.
