Marrakech restaurants

The light had the preternatural purity which give a foretaste of mirage: It was the light in which magic becomes real, and which helps to understand how, to people living in such an atmosphere, the boundary between fact and dream perpetually fluctuates.

Terrific nouvelle Moroccan served in a gorgeous setting: the former home of designer Pierre Balmain. Request a table in the walled garden. Settle in with a glass of wine, flaky pastilla, and the sound of live minstrel instruments playing in the background.

Private dining alcoves are tucked away in a labyrinthine set of buildings. Expect a banquet-style feast. And, well, tourists. But it's worth it for the excellent service and food. 

Jemaa El Fna Night Market

  • Medina, Food Cart/Truck, $$$$ $
  • Place Djema El Fna
  • Marrakech

The central square turns into a boisterous evening hang with snake charmers, storytellers, gamblers, henna artists, and local crowds. Pull up a seat at one of the open-air eateries or kiosks specializing in kebabs, spicy sausages, and sweet mint tea. Watch the grill in front of you, and get your order on a to-go plate.

Le Tobsil

Cue the rose petals and candelabras: You've come to the most romantic palace restaurant in Marrakech. Tagines and savory pastries are delicate and special and delivered course-by-course-by-course (they keep on coming!) throughout the night. Prepare to be spoiled.

Patisserie Al Jawda

  • Gueliz, Bakery, $$$$ $
  • 11 Rue de la Liberte
  • Marrakech
  • +212-525-433-897

Next door to the amtique curios shop L'Orientaliste is a small pastry shop with some of the best sweets in town. French cookies, Moroccan cakes, and small davory treats are piled high on dishes and set upon mirrored shelves.

A strip of tearooms, pastry shops (including the Patisserie des Princes at #32-34 — get the mini flaky bisteeya), cafes, snack bars, and a movie theater.
