Traveling the daily 5 hour round trip to Essouira is what bestows the owners of restaurant 14 and 98 such exquisite, fresh and reasonably priced fish that makes these restaurants a hub of local Moroccans and in the know visitors.
This is the numerically marked restaurant market of Jemaa El Fna square that trundles in daily around 5pm then dispands into the night as if never there around midnight. A site in itself is awing at the process of empty square to bustling food centre in a very short period of time, which can be looked upon from one of the surrounding rooftop cafes.
A seeming tourist attraction at first site, you would be greatly mistaken. As tourism in Marrakech has been around for a relatively short time, these mobile restaruants are filled with local people wanting excellent, fresh and locally priced food while discussing the days stories and welcome in inquisitive tourists with open arms and shuffling bums.
With set menu’s around 30 dirhams the norm ranging from sheeps head and Moroccan snails, to fresh orange juice bars and tea stalls and with everything in between, this is a site that cannot be missed for those wanting to experience what life in La Medina is truly like.
Surrounding this square heart of Marrakech lie the beautifully traditional riads of Marrakech-Riad which give you all and them some for your culturally diverse and memorable stay in Marrakech.
