Location

Epcot in World Showcase, Morocco

Selections

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.

Entree range

Lunch $16–$23 (child $8), dinner $22–$46 (child $8)

Summary

Marrakesh is one of the least-busy World Showcase restaurants, mainly because the cuisine has been homogenized for American tourist palates—nothing is overly spicy, too unfamiliar, or, frankly, much to talk about. But it might be fun to watch the belly dancers and hear some beautiful Middle Eastern music if your only goal is to relax indoors and snack. But the food in the nearby Tangierine Cafe is far better.

Setting and Atmosphere

Located at the very back of the Morocco Pavilion, Marrakesh re-creates a Moroccan palace with tile mosaics, inlaid-wood ceilings, brass chandeliers, subdued lighting, and red Bukhara carpets. Moroccan artisans crafted the decor when the pavilion opened in 1982, and nothing has changed, including the menu. The wasted empty souk space outside doesn’t help the atmosphere.

House Specialties

The appetizer combo is a good way to sample the beef brewat (pastry filled with beef, deep-fried, and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar), bastilla (a minced-chicken pie sprinkled with cinnamon sugar), and jasmina salad. Follow with shish kebab, roast lamb, or lemon chicken. Picky kids can choose from chicken tenders, pasta, and burgers.

Other Recommendations

If you’re hungry, curious, or both, try the Berber Feast, with tastes of several courses.
