The hottest restaurant recommendation in Marrakech. Packed with expats but rarely visited by tourists. Reservation is essential Tuesday to Saturday, on Sunday and Monday le Studio is closed.

Established in 2011 in the heart of the up and coming new town of Marrakech, Le Studio is a smart and very stylish restaurant boasting an outstanding menu of French culinary classics with an international twist. The Thai Beef particularly is to be recommended, and indeed it would seem that beef is this restaurants speciality, naturally it being Morocco it was never going to be pork, but without a doubt nearly all the beef dishes in the restaurant are exceptional. That is not to say that the beef averse should not visit this restaurant, there is also a fine selection of other dishes, including very pleasant fish and vegetarian offerings. One can even partake in a very fine foie gras if they are inclined to do so. These fine dishes are naturally complimented by an excellent wine selection bringing together some truly outstanding Moroccan wines which are specially tailored to the menu.

The staff are very friendly and attentive, speaking both French and English and they certainly give a very fine representation of the restaurant as a whole. The manager one Steeve Verbeek is a most accommodating individual and a very pleasant man to encounter whilst having in a meal in his fine restaurant, indeed the feeling of a truly personal service is one which of the things which helps to make a visit to Le Studio such an enjoyable and memorable experience. The décor of the restaurant is also very impressive, sticking naturally to the theme that its name implies the layout is a chic homage to an Hollywood studio, with the furniture and the layout oozing style. Not only this but the restaurant sports a rather interesting retractable roof, allowing for cool eating in during the often rather warm Moroccan nights. All in all if you are looking for an excellent meal in Marrakech in elegant and stylish surroundings then one should look no further than Le Studio. It is situated on avenue Mouley Rachid behind the popular café de poste. A mere 5 minute taxi drive or a 15 minute walk, our Riads are in a prime position to take advantage of this exciting new culinary development. Book our Riads now to avoid disappointment.

Meat Feast, presented on a sword!

For some years now one of THE places to eat in Marrakech has been the Kenzamane restaurant run by Chef Pascal. New for 2010 is Costa Esmeralda a Spanish style restaurant under Pascal’s direction located just of the Mohammed V boulevard in the Marrakech new town of Guiliez. Consistent with a strong French influence it opened for business on the 14th of July.

It is a little know fact that Pascal was actually born in Gabon. No surprise then that the Gabon Crab starter is a signature dish at Costa Esmeralda!  Served with a spicy dip it is innovative, delicious, and fantastic value for money.

Interesting as much for the theatre of its presentation as anything is the mixed grill brought to the table on sabre.  Go hungry!  Our Marrakech Riad staff will be happy to assist you with reservations at Kenzamane or Costa Esmeralda.   We offer the perfect base from which to explore Marrakech and our attentive staff will be pleased to offer as much help as you need to do so.

Le Marrakchi Restaurant- Jemaa al-Fnaa

The Marrakchi is a well known and well loved restaurant situated next to Cafe France on the North West corner of the main Jemma al Fnaa square in Marrakech.  We particularly like Marrakchi at night, ask for a window table, the view down to the square is stunning.  The menu includes a variety of traditional Moroccan dishes and wine is usually available with your meal. On most nights guests are entertained by Cabaret dancers who will be more than willing to let you join in. The show normally starts a little after nine. This restaurant is averagely priced compared to restaurants of a similar standard and you should expect to spend around 30 Euros per person.

If you are staying in Marrakech, what better base from which to explore than one of our fantastic boutique Riad hotels. Your oasis of calm in the ancient Medina. Reserve Accommodation today.

Dar Yacout is a Marrakech institution, the owner Mohamed Zkhiri is a prominent citizen and until recently served as the honorary British Consul. One of the most flamboyant buildings in the Red City, Yacout was created under the direction of the late Bill Willis, a renowned american architect. A little out of the way in the North Medina, it is worth visiting for its interior and decor alone.

One of the courtyard gardens at Dar Yakout, MarrakechOpen in the evenings from Tuesday to Sunday Dar Yacout offers a fine dining menu of Moroccan specialities at about fifty Euros per person including aperitifs and wine. The service is superb at Dar Yacout, carefully choreographed and bordering on theatrical.
