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.
