Fairly new restaurant in the medina of Marrakech. Good place to stop for lunch on your way to the Medersa Ben Youssef, Marrakech Musuem or the Maison de la Photographie.

Nomad restaurant in Marrakech

Nomad restaurant in Marrakech – newly opened near the main square, Place Jemaa el Fna’

Nomad restaurant in Marrakech

Already receiving great reviews, this restaurant just off the south east corner of Place des Épices, is a welcome addition to the restaurant scene in the medina with its mix of Moorish flavors and spices with contemporary cooking techniques.

You will be pleased to discover interesting new takes on classic dishes , for instance the Tunisian brik –  a vegetarian pastille filled with beetroot and other vegetables.  It all makes for a refreshing change to typical Moroccan dishes – something you come to appreciate after you’ve been a while in Marrakech.

The restaurant is pleasantly decorated – simple and chic. In the mid-price range, it’s good value.

Nomad restaurant decor and kitchen store Chabi Chic

To find it, take the small street tucked in the southeast corner of the Places des Épices and walk about 5 paces to a smart shop window that is a kitchen supply store, called Chabi Chic.  Here you’ll find some of the tableware as well as beautifully packaged quality spices and oils as used in the restaurant.

The restaurant is upstairs – with a salon and some dining areas, then higher up are two roof terraces with an interesting view over the Place des Epices, the entrance to the carpet market formerly the old slave market.

Camel-Burger Marrakech food

Camel burger?

The creative idea of a Marrakchi/American couple who went from the simple premise of discovering the best places to eat in Marrakech – not the fanciest venues but the most authentic. You wander the Marrakech souqs, learning about the different food artisans, food culture, and history of the area. A moving feast with culture as added spice.

They are happy to accommodate special requests and diets.

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.

Le Jardin Restaurant

 

Le Jardin, medina of MarrakeshIf like us, you love the rooftop at Café des Épices but sometimes find it too crowded, head over to its sister restaurant, Le Jardin. It’s just a short stroll away.

Set in the flowery courtyard of a restored riad, Le Jardin is a curious space where you’ll see projected art-house movies on the walls at night and a fashionable crowd eating and drinking in the shaded garden during the day. Trees, water and shade abound so this is just the space for when you want to put your feet up. There’s even a small library under the courtyard arches.

Try the milkshakes during the day (milk with avocado, milk with carrot, almond milk then in the evening switch to traditional Moroccan dishes like tajine d’agneau, mixed grill with taktouka or Beldi chicken with saffron, honey and semolina Seffa.

There’s often a party atmosphere at Le Jardin which as well as being a place of culture, it also doubles as a special events venue.  A special, must-visit place.

Marrakchi street food – get involved!

jemaa el fna street food in Marrakesh

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.

Each night, the numbered stalls, topped with handwritten signs, are eagerly set up by Moroccan men in chefs’ whites. Bubbling cauldrons and hot pans contain everything from bean soups to skewered meats and often these delicious dishes will cost less than a sandwich back home.

With culinary traditions that draw on Morocco’s mix of Berber, Arab and European cultures, there are dozens of tasty dishes to try.

Stand number 6 is where Ahmed pitches up to ladle steaming bowls of escargot. Over at number 32, Hassan serves miniature beef sausages with red tomato chutney on the side. Other stands sell slow-cooked lamb, mini-chicken kebabs, aubergine dipped in sweet smoked paprika and of course tagines.

As with street eats anywhere in the world, there are a few key things to remember – choose busy stalls, eat where the locals eat (literally follow the crowd), dine where food is cooked fresh in front of you and be wary of fruit that may be regularly washed in dubious water to keep it looking fresh.

If you’re nervous give yourself a few days to adjust to the local cuisine, but be confident too – we’ve always been fine and you will be rewarded.

Modern restaurant French cuisine in Gueliz, Marrakesh

Karobase interior, restaurant in MarrakeshKarobase

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 down – the other end of the building housing the Red City offices.

It’s well worth a visit as you get beautifully cooked dishes (French or Moroccan) for a very reasonable price – main dishes about 100 dirhams.

Service is very friendly and both the interior of the restaurant and the outside eating area are very pleasant places to dine.

Open Monday to Saturday, for lunch and dinner.  Music entertainment.

Cheap and cheerful in the medina of Marrakesh

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. It’s not chic but is a favourite of travellers and locals.  Ambience provided by ceramic tile walls with a band of sculpted plaster above – rows of tables one next to the other so you can strike up conversation with strangers.

You can eat a good, satisfying meal for a very reasonable price – a yogurt dessert is only 3 dirhams. Two people can eat well on 100 dirhams.
