5 best restaurants in Marrakech
This wonderful traditional restaurant is situated in a gorgeously decked-out riad deep in the north of the medina. It has been one of the first addresses in these parts to offer a multi-course gastronomic Moroccan feast for a set price and 20 years on it has lost none of its appeal. Enjoy aperitifs on the panoramic roof terrace then settle down for a waist-expanding meal in one of the lavishly decorated salons.
Take a seat at one of the lop-sided lemon-wood tables beneath the swaying fronds of a banana tree and enjoy the inventive vegetarian menu at La Famille. Everything on the menu is light and fresh with flavors that are rooted in classic local ingredients. For example try the couscous served with sweet onions mint almonds and dried figs. The homemade desserts are also delicious and usually feature a seasonal fruit tart while fresh juices and herb-infused water are served instead of alcohol.
