A gourmet break in Marrakech

In addition to having many monuments to see, Marrakech offers cuisine that is widely appreciated throughout the world. The dishes are enhanced with spices, with vibrant colours and come in a variety of styles and flavours. All of this is executed in the greatest simplicity and complete authenticity of Morrocan tradition. The city has many tasty restaurants, but be careful not to fall into tourist traps, because if you eat well, you will pay a high price. 

Be curious and lose yourself in the alleys of Marrakech to discover locations that will be used for your next trips, in the meantime, Villanovo has found some good spots where you can discover the delicious Moroccan cuisine.

A gourmet break in Marrakech

You probably know the Majorelle garden, but what about the restaurant it houses? Launched in 2010 by Saida Cherkaoui, "Pause Gourmande" offers traditional dishes: couscous, tagines, briouattes, pastillas, pastries, all prepared by professionals in the kitchen. Here, the semolina is hand-moulded and the products come straight out of the market. During the hot summer months, the restaurant is equipped with air conditioning and water misters on the terrace.

In Morocco, dancing and singing is an integral part of the culture. The famous belly dance is a signature of the continent, to the delight of visitors who come to admire the energy of the dancers who often perform in famous restaurants. This is the case at Comptoir Darna, where every evening artists come to celebrate a gourmet dinner. Every day, the restaurant offers an orchestra that revisits the greatest hits of Arab-Andalusian music. On the menu, pick from the local flavours and choose between Tajine, Couscous or Méchoui. At dessert time, traditional dancers enter to mark the end of the evening. After a delicious meal, let yourself be carried away by the traditional sounds and enjoy a night in Marrakech.

The Nomad, a modern rooftop restaurant of Marrakech is the ideal place to enjoy the beautiful view of the city and mountains, and enjoy a good traditional meal. On the menu, you will find western-based dishes with a Moroccan touch, something to inspire your recipes when you return home, such as squid with cumin, ginger and harissa. Unlike the usual terraces, this restaurant, founded in 2014, is perched on the 4th floor of a carpet store, ideal to take a little height and protect yourself from the hustle and bustle of the city. Once there, you can take a break and sit on these comfortable sofas sipping a delicious mint tea

You can enjoy the Nomad by day or by night, for a lunch between two visits or during a dinner under the city lights. It is best to book in advance if you want a place on one of Marrakech's most trendy rooftops.
