Eating in Marrakech

Here are some of our recommendations for other places we like to eat;

Note the last word in each is the name of the neighborhood where you’ll find the restaurants.

La Creperie De Marrakech – Rue du Capitaine Arrigui, Gueleiz– you’ll find an assortment of sweet and savory crepes in a fun atmosphere here.

Cafe Glacier L’Opera; Avenue Mohamed VI, Hivernage – We like this spot for breakfast.

Amal Center rue Allal ben Ahmed, Gueleiz – Amal is only open until 4pm for lunch daily. It has a rotating menu and is extremely affordable. 

Cafe Clock, Derb Chatouka, Kasbah – this is not only a restaurant but a cross-cultural center. Join them for free performances throughout the week. 

L’Atelier Cuisine, 8 Rue Oued El Makhazine, Gueliz – A new find and favorite of mine (Amanda). If you want something that’s not Moroccan but a very good seasonal, homecooked meal you’ll love it. 

Ksar Essaoussan, 3 rue Essaoussan, Medina – make reservations but this is a great spot for a delicious Moroccan dinner like you’d eat in someone’s home. 

La Cuisine de MonaResidence Mamoune 5 n 115B | Quartier El Ghoul, Cite Olm, This is a very small restaurant serving a great array of Lebanese dishes, all fresh and all amazing. Try the chicken wings and falafel – Amanda’s favorites!

Djem al Fna Stalls, Stall 93 for grilled foods and Stall 14 – We’re usually not big fans of the food stalls but if you want the experience we recommend these two stalls.

Cafe 16 Place du 16 Novembre; Gueleiz – For breakfast, lunch or dinner this cafe has a seasonal menu with different food. I recommend their salads which are a nice departure from meat heavy meals.

Mes’Lalla at The Mandarin Oriental – Route de Royal Golf – This upscale dining venue provides classic Moroccan dishes with a twist. The flavors are authentic and the all Moroccan kitchen staff really know how to prepare elegant, delicious meals.
