Marrakech City Guide 2018

I went to Marrakech to shoot the next campaign of my travel brand,  Away This Way, and I am very excited to show you the pictures.
While being in Marrakech I took some time to explore the vibrant city.
I love to try some local spots as well as the more international inspired places. And I would like to share some of my favourite spots which I hope you can use if you come to Marrakech:

  • Atay Cafe. Near the Ben Youssef Madrasa, this is the one with the most Instagrammable roof terrace. Vibrant juices and boho-chic vibes.
  • Cafes des Epices. One of Marrakech’s hippest cafes, head to this multi-level Spice Market cafe if you’re craving a latte or looking for a light lunch, chill beats and rooftop views.
  • Cafe Clock. Originally started in Fes, Cafe Clock now has an outpost in Marrakech. I
  • Cafe du Livre. One for the bookworms (and those tolerant of cigarette smoke), this friendly hideaway and English-language bookstore has an alcohol licence and is popular with expats.
  • Grande Cafe de la Poste. Go here for ambience. This is a cool brasserie.
  • Dar Moha. Moroccan cuisine in a renovated riad.
  • Kechmara. Contemporary menu with a range of burgers, this is also one of the coolest places to grab a beer in town.
  • Ksar Essaoussane. Good value tradition Moroccan dishes in a beautiful candlelit riad with excellent service. They’ll even send a cloaked man to come meet you if you’re having trouble finding it.
  • Latitude31. Modern Moroccan fusion in a laid back courtyard setting.
  • La Maison Arabe. The established spot to go for elegant fine dining, tinkled ivories, and the swankiest bar in town.
  • Le Foundouk. Romantic spot for a moroccan cuisine dinner.
  • Le Jardin. Greenery and garden cool in this chic secret hideaway in the medina. Un-intimidating Mediterranean and Moroccan dishes with a side order of designer kaftans.
  • Libzar. Modern Moroccan menu in Gueliz.
  • Mes’lalla. Contemporary Moroccan fusion at the Mandarin Oriental hotel.
  • Nomad. Marrakech’s most beloved hipster restaurant, with echoes of Ottolenghi, excellent ice-cream, and a ground floor store selling fancy kitchenware.
  • Limoni: Cute hidden restaurant in a garden full of lemons. 
  • Dar Zeliij: Traditional Moroccan cuisine in a stunning riad. They have several terraces so if the weather allows for it have a drink there before dinner. I can recommend the mosaic salad and the chicken Tagine. 
  • Dar Yacout: Moroccan restaurant in stunning authentic surroundings. 

To explore:

  •  Jardin Majorelle – the stunning Yves Saint Laurent cactus garden is worth a visit
  • Le Jardin Secret – is a stunning garden in the middle of the Souk Medina.
  • Explore the markets in the Souk Medina. You will probably get lost but do not worry, you will find your way around. Scout for ceramics, carpets, and spices, which Marrakech is known for having good quality of.
