Explore Marrakech

Vibrant and bustling, Marrakech has an energy all its own (there's a reason it's one of Morocco's most well-visited cities). To get right to the heart of things, wind your way through its busy Medina—the walled, historic neighbourhood that serves as the city's main square. Fair warning, it can be a bit intense, but while there, you can fully immerse yourself browsing souks for local wares, taking in the Moorish architecture, and filling up on street food. On the slower end of things, places like Le Jardin Secret, Bahia Palace, and the famed technicolor Jardin Majorelle give some breathing room alongside seriously gorgeous scenery. And you can always take a full time-out at one of Marrakech's many luxe spas or relaxing hammams. Check out must-sees below for even more to explore.

Moroccan food—with a twist

The first time I came to Marrakech I ate so much Moroccan food I was ready to swear it off forever. But now that I’ve lived here for 12 years and even run a food tour company, I’ve learned that Marrakech is not just tagines and mint tea; it’s a true melting pot. From contemporary spins on local classics to fusion restaurants that marry Moroccan tastes with global influences, here’s my go-to guide.
marocmama, Marrakech, Morocco
  • Plus 61
    This classy spot near the Medina celebrates local products and producers through a distinctly Australian lens, blending cuisine from the Mediterranean, Middle East, and South Asia. Think, smoked ricotta cavatelli with lamb, peas, and green olives (plus fabulous cocktails like the Tamatini with vodka, ginger, and lychee). With limited seating, bookings are a must.
  • Folk Marrakech
    Folk is a newcomer to Marrakech's dining scene and has a blend of Moroccan and Middle Eastern cuisines. But it isn't just about the food: Folk is a cultural hub where a happy hour buzz, live bands, DJs, dancers, and an eclectic menu come together. The shared mezze menu is great for a group—don’t sleep on the sweet pumpkin dip.
  • L'Mida Marrakech
    L'Mida is my favourite spot to bring friends who are staying in the medina thanks to the modern, avant-garde menu and gorgeous rooftop views of the surrounding souk—especially at sunset. Chef Nargisse Benkabbou is known for showcasing the versatility of local and seasonal ingredients like lentil croquettes with preserved lemons from the nearby market, or a sea bream poke bowl dressed with Moroccan chermoula marinade.
  • Le Douar
    At Douar you’ll find classic Moroccan dishes that you might see on other menus in town (chicken and olive tagine, lamb couscous). But, what made my Moroccan husband and me fall in love with it are the dishes like thon o l’hrour (spicy tuna sandwich), boulfaf (liver kebab), and coco palevi (biscuits soaked in pomegranate syrup)—simple dishes from his childhood that are never found in restaurants.
  • Amal
    I always love food with a purpose, and that’s exactly what this restaurant run by Amal Women’s Training Centre does: The women employed are part of a training programme to help those in a difficult life situation make a change. Amal has a lunch menu that includes three different Moroccan or international dishes each day. They have one of the best couscous dishes in town and always sell out, plus a great Moroccan cooking class.
  • Mandala Society Marrakech
    There are very few restaurants in Morocco that offer a menu with a primarily vegetarian focus, and that’s where Mandala Society steps in. With a meat-free kitchen (though there is fish) and a variety of fair-trade coffee, it’s high on my restaurant love list. The brunch boards are what I stop in for. They’re offered both as a sweet option with items like banana amlou (argan oil and almond butter) rye toast or a savory version with scrambled eggs and avocado toast.
  • Dardar Rooftop Cocktails & Eat
    This medina rooftop bar has an in-house DJ. along with inventive takes on Moroccan classics including beef with pink couscous, aubergine churros, and saffron chicken risotto. The restaurant serves lunch and is open until 2 a.m. for late-night dining—perfect for a girls’ night out.
  • Marrakech Food Tours
    Marrakech is known for its famous night market, Jemma el Fna, but if you want to explore the street food scene deeper, book a food tour with my company. On this small group guided tour, we’ll wander through the streets of the medina in the evening, tasting and seeing things you might otherwise miss. It will illuminate not just the food but the stories of the medina, as well.
