Hi guys! It has been a while since I posted a blog as I have been trying to make my instagram posts more detailed for you but after all the amazing food we ate in Marrakech I thought I would share some of the places we visited!
You do not have to walk far in Marrakech to find tagine and amazing mint tea but there are so many places to eat it is hard to know where to choose. With tripadvisor, instagram and our riad owner giving us recommendations we did really well at finding some really good spots.
Nomad is a well established restaurant in the Medina, in the heart of the soukes. We went for courgette and feta fritters to start and then for main I went for a vegan option of roasted cauliflower and Ryan had a lamb tagine, both were incredible.
Set down a quiet street, away from the chaos this beautiful restaurant is a little oasis. The staff and setting were spectacular and the food was really good. It was a fusion restaurant of Morrocan and Italian, with two seperate menus, however, we stuck with Morrocan food, a lamb sharing tagine and really enjoyed it (however, there was a lot of meat maybe too much so be prepared if you have this option!)
This was by far our favourite place, having only been opened two weeks it was recommended by our Riad owner and it was amazing. With a fusion menu and a beautiful roof top, the staff were great and we ended up spending about 3 hours in there relaxing, having non alcoholic drinks (not many places are licensed in the Medina) and then ordering bits of food. I would go back in a heart beat!
I had a chicken tagine and Ryan had a burger but we also had a few of their juices and cauliflower hummus, which I need to recreate!
On our last night we got a taxi to Hivernage to eat at Comptoir Darna as they had entertainment each night which was a live band and belly dancers! This was the first time we had seen so many English people on our trip, the tables were very close and the menu was pretty expensive compared to our other meals.
It was a nice experience and the food was lovely but being a huge foodie, I thought it was a little over priced for what you got and it was really the beautiful restaurant and entertainment you were paying for… nevertheless we had a great night and if you want to get dressed up and have some lovely cocktails this place is for you!
Some of the other places we visited for drinks:
- Max & Jan
- La Mamouria Hotel
- Le Salama
We stayed in the most beautiful Riad which I would 100% recommend – Riad Up
