Anybody who is heading away on Morocco holidays can look forward to trying a wide variety of traditional dishes. The chefs in this part of the world make full use of spices to create delicious foods with a real kick. They also use meats such as beef, mutton and lamb as essential ingredients. While it is possible to purchase fresh produce from the local markets, the most authentic dining experience can be enjoyed in the dining establishments outlined in this article.

Chez Chegrouni

This unpretentious dining place is situated in the heart of  Djemaa el Fna. Visitors are invited to either take a seat downstairs, or on the balcony, which looks out across the busy local streets. On the menu you will discover a range of simple dishes that really hit the spot. The cous cous with chicken and lamb soup are highly recommended.

Restaurant Oscar Progrès

A number of travellers have spoken about the delights of this restaurant upon their return from Holidays in Africa. The interior decorations and dishes served by the friendly staff can best be described as cheap and cheerful. A delicious chicken tagine and cool and refreshing coke will only set you back 30 dirham.

La Bagatelle

The food at this stylish French restaurant in Marrakesh is a little pricey when compared with that served at other establishments on this list. However, the high quality service and speciality dishes will still seem reasonably priced to those people who have travelled from the UK.

Palais de Poulet

The team who organise Directline Holidays to Morocco have highlighted this restaurant as being particularly worth of praise. On the extensive menu you will find everything from succulent fried chicken to finely cooked chicken with rice. You may like to sit outside and watch the crowds making their way to  Ave Hassan II.

Grand Café de la Poste

Upon walking through the doors of this high quality establishment you will see a scene that brings the colonial history of Morocco to mind. A talented musician player sits in front of a piano and plays jazz ballads, while the customers quaff cocktails and fine wine. The luxury cuisine on offer here isn’t as expensive as you might imagine.
