I am off to Marrakesh in a few weeks, I am making reservations for restaurants and planning my time there, does anyone have any recommendations of places to book/visit? thank you x
If you’re still needing accommodation, there are some really lovely places in this feature:
This is a delicious & lovely spot for lunch, in the middle of the souks but away from the hustle & bustle as it’s up on the terrace - you’ll need to book or arrive at midday to get a table, but so worth it - mostly veggie food and all delicious. Home - NOMAD - Restaurant Marrakech
A fun and delicious restaurant for the evening with a v cool dj and in a beautiful riad is this place https://limoni.ma/
You have to go down a few blind alleys to get there but it’s worth it, music gets going about 11 - v fun.
When bartering / buying things, nothing is priced, so when they suggest an initial price for something you want to end up paying no more than 50% of this. So come back with a super low offer - it’s a hard negotiation and things aren’t cheap (or that’s what I found!)
I’d also say avoid the tanneries - deeply smelly and not interesting at all. I also avoided the main square totally which was easy to do and meant I didn’t have to see monkeys tied up etc.
We just came back from a week in Marrakesh and I built a list on google maps you might like to look at -
Restaurants & Cafe’s I’d recommend:
Al Fassia Gueliz
Terrasse la maison des epices
Cafe des epices
I’d also recommend going out to Beldi Country club for a day by the pool, they do a great lunch deal that includes the use of the pools etc and it’s really relaxing.
For shopping I’d head out to the industrial quarter we went for a shopping morning and it was fab. We came home with an extra suitcase.
thanks so much Loz, so helpful. I’ve booked NOMAD!
Oh this is so helpful, thank you!!
