Restaurants in Marrakech

Whether it's served in a street-front eatery or a glamorous roof-top bar, the Marrakech food scene is sure to delight. Expect traditional dishes like tagine and couscous, but also make room for more innovative meals. However, tread carefully around the tourist trap cafes, notably in Jemaa El Fna. Most restaurants do not serve alcohol.

The Marrakech restaurants below are grouped into three pricing categories for a three-course meal without alcohol:
Expensive (over Dh350)
Moderate (Dh150 to Dh350)
Cheap (under Dh150)

In upmarket restaurants, a service charge is usually added. Tipping is expected if no service charge is added.
