The appetizer combo is a good way to sample the beef brewat(pastry filled with beef, deep-fried, and sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon), bastilla(a minced-chicken pie sprinkled with cinnamon sugar), and jasmina salad. Follow with lemon chicken or roast lamb shank, and split an order of vegetable couscous.
Lunch $16–$23 (child $8), dinner $22–$46 (child $8)
Restaurant Marrakesh rarely sees crowds outside of festival seasons with dining packages, so take advantage if you’re on the prowl for a prime walk-up or last-minute booking opportunity. Service is typically very attentive, but can border on formal, which may be off-putting for those in search of a more casual meal. The menu, while generally satisfying, rarely changes and features only faint efforts at spice-packed authentic cuisine nowadays. For the same price point, diners may be better off with the more diverse flavors offered at Spice Road Table.
Setting and Atmosphere
Nestled in the far back corner of the Morocco pavilion, Restaurant Marrakesh is pretty easy to miss from the outside, but definitely wows once you step inside. A continuation of the ornate decorations of the Fez House courtyard near the front of the pavilion, Marrakesh’s interior is palatial, complete with stucco carving, intricate wood inlays, and colorful tile mosaics. Plush carpet and dim lighting dates the atmosphere a bit, but guests may be too busy enjoying the hourly belly-dancing and traditional music shows to notice.
Take advantage of one of several “feast” options to sample several of the restaurant’s specialties, including the Beef Brewat roll (akin to an egg roll, with ground beef and hints of cinnamon), the roast lamb meshoui (a whole braised shank, served on the bone for an impressive presentation), and any variety of savory couscous. A la carte entrees like the Mogador fish tagine and lemon chicken truly shine above the muted flavors of the chicken and beef kebabs.
The goat cheese and olive spread with tabbouleh and red pepper sauce is a hidden gem to share before an entree or as a mid-afternoon snack. Dessert isn’t Marrakesh’s strong suit, so stick to the baklava or skip it in favor of alternate options at nearby Tangierine Café or Spice Road Table.
