Where to Eat out in Morocco

Top restaurants for eating out in Morocco

If you are a foodie, you will understand what I mean when I say that I travel through my stomach. Eating is an amazing way to travel and experience the world, as it is not only a necessity – whether you are at home or if you are on the road – but gives you the opportunity to try a number of different cuisines from a number of different places.

Food is so much more than a necessity, as it varies from place to place and gives you insight into the country you are visiting in more ways than one. From one bowl of something traditional, you will be able to experience the country’s culture and traditions, as most of the local dishes you will find have been prepared, cooked and eaten for centuries.

Morocco is a place where culture and tradition collide so beautifully with the local cuisine, and is a perfect example of a country that puts passion and love into their local dishes that have been eaten by their parents, and their parents’ parents for years and years.

If you are visiting this magical place this year, we have put together a list of three restaurants where you can indulge in and experience some of the most delicious local food that will ever pass your lips.

Situated at a luxury hotel in Morocco, this traditional yet innovative Moroccan and Lebanese restaurant serves up delicious traditional cuisine on the first floor of the Grand Riad.

Finished with traditional oriental d├ęcor to set the mood, the Morjana restaurant offers guests a chance to indulge in famous tagines packed with flavour, meat and fresh vegetables, seafood pastillas that are fresh and sumptuous, couscous that is moist and moreish, and kebabs that are succulent and tender. To finish off, there is a wide selection of sweet pastries – the perfect end to a delicious dinner!

Morjana uses an impressive variety of fruits, vegetables and spices that accompany all of their dishes, reflecting the numerous regions that make up Morocco. Each meal that you order, your waiter or waitress will advise you on what the best Moroccan wines are the perfect accompaniment for each meal.

In addition to their delicious cuisine, Morjana adds a real oriental touch to your night, our belly dancer and live band will perform for you.

La Grande Table Marocaine – Marrakech

Traditional Moroccan food has been given a Michelin-star upgrade at this divine restaurant in Marrakech, with its head chef taking a number of traditional dishes and ‘upgrading’ them by adding a little something extra.

The restaurant is housed in a beautiful room which has carved archways, lattice and shimmering lanterns, all of which adds elegance and sparkle to the already breath-taking venue.

Diners can expect to nibble in delicate salads and rub their bellies once they have eaten the spicy lamb couscous.

The Ruined Garden – Fez

I love the name of this restaurant, it sounds so enchanting and magical, just like Morocco. The Ruined Garden I located within the remains of a big, bold and beautiful merchant’s riad, and diners have the opportunity to sit at gorgeous tables and chairs that sit on a beautifully coloured mosaic floor that is surrounded from every side by verdant flora.

You would never believe that this exact site was used as a rubbish dump, and has been transformed into an enchanting space that serves up Moroccan favourites – including svenge, zaalouk and tagines!

If you are all about experiencing traditional foods while you travel, you will find nothing but the best Moroccan dishes at the three restaurants we have mentioned in our guide.
