Vegan-vegetarian restaurant. Lovely café in a typical small dar (home) serving fusion food with local, organic ingredients. Owner, Barakat, speaks very good English. Also has a gift store, Arganica, selling a large range of natural cosmetics, spa products and organic food, such as Argan oil and olive oil. He now has two other cafés, one in Marrakesh, near Musée Dar Si Said, and the other in Essaouira.
When you’ve been in Morocco for a while and would like a change of cuisine, try Catanzaro Restaurant. An Italian trattoria in the middle of Marrakech – home-cooked meals including pasta, pizza and gorgeous antipasti at reasonable prices. Lunch and evening meals. Booking essential for the evening.
Bo & Zin restaurant is 3.5 kms out of town on the main road to the Ourika valley but well worth the journey. The restaurant offers a shuttle bus service. This is an amazing experience! The food is wonderfully tasting fusion food – a mix of French and Thai cuisine. The setting is stunning – the interior design is unique and the gardens are a mix of desert and oasis, all beautifully laid out. The restaurant itself has room for large and small groups, with small, intimate corners as well as tables overlooking the spectacular gardens. The gardens also offer more seating in cosy Berber style tents. This place has a wonderful atmosphere and makes a great evening out.
Al Fassia in Marrakesh has earned a great reputation for really good Moroccan cuisine. The restaurant is unique in that it is owned and run by women and you are served exclusively by women. You can order à la carte. Al Fassia offers a great selection of tajines and other traditional Moroccan food, including vegetarian dishes. Lovely atmosphere and well worth a visit. You feel exceptionally welcome, and the service is elegant, efficient and low key. It is a place to relax and enjoy your meal.
Fabulous Moroccan restaurant just around the corner from Riad Sapphire in the Sidi ben Slimane area of Marrakech medina. Great Moroccan food. The decor is sophisticated and the ambience is fantastic. Live Andalusian music, great service. Definitely worth a visit. Good restaurant for a special celebration. Alcohol served. You can pay by credit card.
We have been exploring the many artisans’ workshops in the vicinity of the Museum of Marrakech and the residential area of Sidi ben Slimane (and Riad Sapphire and Spa), in the old city of Marrakesh.
It is in these workshops that many of the wonderful products on sale in the suqs are manufactured. Some of the workshops are in full view as you wander the alleyways of the medina of Marrakech, others are hidden from view, often in the old caravanserais where traders would stay the night as they came to the city to buy and sell.
Marrakech has over 300 days of sunshine and is a year-round destination.
Ideal for friends or family reunions, romantic getaways or just getting away.
Chill out or celebrate in exotic Marrakech, Morocco.
Marrakesh the city: A mixture of the exotic and the familiar — the old city of Marrakech with its narrow alleyways and enticing markets offers us a glimpse of a different way of living. The Marrakech medina (old city) has been declared a UNESCO world heritage site.
