Restaurants in Marrakech
Henna CafePrice: Moderate
Visitors are drawn here because of the café’s moral credentials (it provides assistance and education to locals), but the menu deserves praise in its own right. Though the selection of sandwiches is simple, each is expertly prepared. The falafel dish is the standout offering. Dine on the outdoor terrace, but watch your step – the eatery has two pet tortoises roaming around.Address:

Le Grand Café de la PostePrice: Moderate

Café de FrancePrice: Cheap
A Marrakech institution, Café de France is popular as a meeting place for those with business in the medina. The street-level terrace is good for watching the comings and goings in the square. The menu offers unexceptional but serviceable fare and decent coffee at a reasonable price; you’re paying for the location and convenience factor.Address:
Gastro MKPrice: Expensive
Famed for its five-course taster dinner, Gastro MK is perhaps the culinary king of Marrakech’s medina. The evening starts with aperitifs and canapés on the roof terrace, before diners are lead into the serene and sophisticated restaurant space. The popular set menu is comprised of Mediterranean dishes with a contemporary Moroccan twist. Book well in advance. Serves alcohol.Address:
Tel: +212 524 376 173.
Taj'in DarnaPrice: Cheap
Of the many restaurants offering outdoor terraces overlooking Jemaa el Fna, this is the best. Not as crowded as some come sundown, it serves traditional tagines, sandwiches and salads. The food isn’t the cheapest in the square, but it’s worth the extra dirhams for the view. Order the olives, which aren’t on the menu but provide the perfect sunset snack.Address:

Jemaa el FnaPrice: Cheap
Of the many slogans bellowed at tourists sizing up the food shacks in one corner of Jemaa el Fna (“We cook better than Waitrose”), only one is honest: “It’s the same shit everywhere”. With almost identical menus, grab a spare spot, avoid inhaling the acrid smoke and tuck in to your suspect chicken and rice. Authentic? No. Overpriced? Yes. Must-do Marrakech experience? Definitely.Address:
