Restaurant in souks of Marrakech

Un déjeuner à Marrakech

roof terrace at Marrakech restaurant un dejeuner a marrakech

Rather a long name for a restaurant, it has nevertheless earned a good reputation by providing excellent and beautifully presented meals and delicious desserts. Excellent value for money.. There are several floors with a roof terrace about three floors up—if you still have energy to mount the stairs.

It’s north along the road that leads from the Bahia Palace, keep walking until you reach a small square. If you look right, you’ll see the Jamade store offering Heritage Berbère perfumes and accessories. Looking straight ahead is the store Nina l’Étrangère selling felt hats and very reasonably-priced clothing and next to that another café. Opposite this café is Un déjeuner à Marrakech. It has just been refurbished with tasteful Moroccan tiles up the stairs and a cleaner more modern look.
