Morocco travel advice part 3
One day in marrakech – Where to eat in Marrakech?
I strongly recommend the restaurants around the Jemaa El Fna, you will be disappointed. To get a panorama photo of the place, it is often in these restaurants that you have to go, if you really want to make a beautiful photo, I recommend the restaurant “Grand Balcony Glacier Cafe” is the best view for having tested several.
If you really want to eat traditional, nothing beats street food! A street tajine and a restaurant tajine, you will quickly understand the difference. Generally in the street, it is held by Berbers, he does not speak French but their tajine is a killer!
Do not hesitate to test the stands in the Jemaa El Fna square, go around and let yourself be seduced by the one who will convince you to eat at his place. Everything is in front of you, you will only have to choose, to settle and to taste!
If you really want to eat in a restaurant, you also have a wide choice, do not hesitate to stroll in the medina and in the neighborhoods of Gueliz or Hivernage.
Chez Ali Marrakech
There is also the famous dinner show Fantasia at Ali Marrakech, you will be installed traditionally on beautiful cushions under a tent and taste the Moroccan dishes, while enjoying the musicians and acrobats. At the end of the meal, you will go to the arena to admire the magical show, and you will keep a wonderful memory.
To go to Chez Ali Marrakech, you have the possibility of reserve online and a driver will pick you up depending on the location of your hotel. The price includes, transportation, dinner and show. More information here.
For a more chic restaurant with a typical Moroccan atmosphere, you have the restaurant Palais Arabe, very famous for its delicious dishes and its atmosphere with the oriental dance show. You can book online, the price includes transportation and dinner. More information here.
Activities in Marrakech
quad biking marrakech
The most famous activity near Marrakech is to go quad biking Marrakech in the palm grove. You will generally have the choice, half-day (morning or afternoon) or day. if you really love sensation, both are nice.
You have other places around Marrakech to go quad like Takerkoust Lake which is very nice too! And if the quad does not inspire you, you also have the opportunity to buggy.
You will stop at the locals, drink a glass of mint tea and eat Moroccan specialties such as oriental cakes or Msemmens (like pancakes).
Marrakech camel trek
For those who prefer a calm and quiet ride, you have this opportunity in the palm grove. It lasts in general 2h.
It’s an equally fun activity, it must be tested during your trips to the desert doors. Not that it is uncomfortable, on the contrary, but with the dunes, it moves a lot and if we do not cling, we finish the first head in the sand so the walk in the palm grove is very peaceful!
