Le Tanjia Restaurant

Le Tanjia is a long established restaurant just five minutes from Dar Habiba, South of the  main square in the direction of the Jewish quarter, the Mellah.

It is named after a classic Moroccan Lamb dish the Tanjia but the real signature dish is another slow cooked Marrakechi Lamb speciality ‘Mechoui’ where the whole lamb is cooked (traditionally undergound) for many hours.

On most evening there are belly dancers to add to the fun. Service can sometimes be a little slow but that leaves all the more time to enjoy the wonderful interior or the stunning views from the West facing roof terrace- a perfect place from which to watch the sun go down.

Tip for cooler evenings, the roof terrace is much more enclosed and consequently warmer than that of the nearby ‘Kosy bar’ which is another excellent Marrakech eatery.

Stay with us in one of our traditional Riads in Marrakech and experience an ancient way of living in many ways untouched for centuries.
