Marrakech Restaurants

From fine-dining to street food, Marrakech is a foodie’s paradise. Moroccan cuisine is characterised by its blend of berries, chili, cinnamon, nutmeg and turmeric. Marrakech’s specialty is tanija, which is essentially a slow-cooked beef stew. Orange juice or mint-garnished green tea is the traditional drinks to wash down meals.
