Eating in Marrakesh
While we love Moroccan food, there are certain foods that we often get cravings for that are not always that easy to find. One of these is of course – cheese! With so many French expats in the city, thankfully it isn’t too hard to source good selections of cheese and dairy produce. One of
It’s rare that a visitor leaves Marrakech without a newly-found passion for the local food. We offer lovely, home-cooked salads and tagines in our own riad and happily recommend plenty of interesting places to eat in and around Marrakech (many of our favourite places can be found here on this blog). But, if you’re keen
There was no space for boring, cookie-cutter style rooms in our new riad. Each suite has been lovingly designed with the guest’s comfort in mind every step of the way. You’ll see that we have a gemstone theme, which is apparent in the colour scheme and energy of each suite. Here we explain in just
Drumroll please…. Riad Sapphire is now officially OPEN! We have worked day and night to make sure that our brand new, all-suite riad stands out in the crowd.

Moroccan soul food is best sampled on the street, or in someone’s home. As a tourist it can be hard to secure an invite while on vacation, so after you’ve tried the delicious homecooked food at our riad, wander the makeshift food stalls around Djmaa el-Fna and surrounding streets. It is a quintessential Marrakchi experience.
Karobase A very modern restaurant in Guèliz. It’s a little out of the way so not as well-known as others on the main roads. If you go north on Mohamed V to the La Flamme Restaurant (on the corner of Avenue Khattabi), take the road that is diagonally opposite (rue Drâa). It’s the second street
Krem Kafé 7 The opening of new cafés is hard to keep up with. My latest discovery is a chic café called Palais Khum in the street down from Dar el Bacha (where the sentries stand outside). The antique stores round about are also upgrading their image by making modern renovations to make their
Restaurant Oscar Progrés On the middle road of the roads leading south of the main square, Place Jemaa’ el Fna’, on the rue Bani Marine, you’ll find Restaurant Oscar Progrés.
