In the city’s charming ‘spice square’ the aptly name Cafe des Epices spreads over three levels, including a rooftop from which guests can enjoy views of the Atlas Mountains and even admire the glowing sunset by evening. The interior reflects the colours and architecture of Marrakech, and the menu offers beverages such as spiced tea and cinnamon coffee, as well as juices and light snacks from Moroccan pastries to tajines.

An oasis located in the centre of the bustling Gueliz region, the unique and chic Azar gives guests a modern experience of Morocco. It’s a fun restaurant that serves Moroccan, Lebanese and international cuisine prepared from freshly sourced ingredients; guests can choose from a large drinks selection as well as a range of shisha flavours. The entertainment is also worth a mention, with glamorous belly dancers, an in-house orchestra and popular DJs performing every weekend. After a satisfying meal, guests can relax on the terrace sofas with some traditional mint tea.

Terrasse des Épices, located on a hidden rooftop terrace in the heart of the Old Town, is one of the best places in the Medina to relax over a drink and enjoy fresh Franco-Moroccan cuisine. It is less luxurious than some of its local rivals, with a contemporary design characterised by dark wood and rattan furniture, and a view of the rooftops of the Medina and the far-off Atlas Mountains. Al fresco dining is nothing new in Marrakech, but Terrasse des Épices does it to perfection; dishes such as chicken tajine with lemon confit and Filet de saint pierreare highlights of a hugely enticing menu.
