Food & Drink

Terrasse des Épices & Nomad — Two A+ terrace restaurants in the heart of the Medina run by the same duo. Go to either—or both! Refreshing salads & light Moroccan cuisine on rooftops. IMO: Nomad is better for lunch, Terrasse des Épices is better for dinner.

La Maison Arabe — The most authentically Moroccan of all the luxe hotel restaurants. The space is loaded with antique details and a hand-painted ceiling and the vibe extends outside to its lovely courtyard on warmer nights.

Grand Café de la Poste — When you need a break from all that couscous & tagine. French colonial brasserie in a grand former post-office in Geliz.

Rooftop Bar at El Fenn — Eat and drink with views for days. It’s such a lovely hangout spot, I’ve cross-listed this under Things to Do.

The Churchill Bar at the Mamounia — One of my favorite hotel bars in the world. Go for drinks and fab people-watching. It used to be you could just walk in. Now, it’s worth checking if you can reserve. (The last time I went, I needed a dinner reservation just to get into the hotel / pass security, which was very tight.)
