Say hello to Nomad, a rooftop oasis that serves up spectacular food and views in equal measure. It’s also where you’ll find a fab fusion of contemporary and Moroccan cuisine! Fish fans will love the tender calamari, which is served in a sofrito of anchovies, cumin ginger and harissa over a bed of beautifully braised aubergines. For the veggies, you can’t go wrong with the roasted cauliflower, which is marinated in dukkah, a rich seasoning blend made from toasted nuts, seeds and spices.

Le Jardin

What do you get when you turn a dilapidated Riad into a fresh-faced foodie haven? Le Jardin, of course! Open the doors to a leafy green oasis covered in emerald tiles and you’ll be rewarded with a curated menu offering a choice of European and Moroccan cuisine. There are home comforts like burgers and avocado toast or local delicacies such as tagine shakshuka and couscous.

La Table de Marrakech

If you’re after somewhere traditional and relaxed to eat, why not escape the hustle and bustle of the Bahia Palace with a meal at La Table de Marrakech? Located opposite the entrance to the palace, you’ll be steps away from tempting tagines and fluffy couscous. And with khobz, AKA traditional Moroccan bread, served as standard, you’ll have something to nibble on while you wait for the main event.

This is the sister restaurant of Le Jardin, so you can expect equally outstanding standards. You can’t miss it, nestled within the Medina, it’s recognised for its red tadelakt exterior and suspended hammam buckets. Why not settle down on a handmade Berber cushion and tuck into a Beldi breakfast? It features a selection of fresh fruits, olives, bread and the quintessential Moroccan mint tea.
