Marrakesh Restaurant Review

: The ambience is half the fun at Marrakesh: guests sit on the floor, leaning against plush cushions while a waiter pours mint tea from on high and brings rosewater for cleansing the hands (traditionally, Moroccans eat with their hand, but dubious Westerners may request silverware). This spot is suitable for families and larger parties. Most guests opt for the fixed-price multi-course feast: lentil soup; a mixed salad plate; sweet and savory b'stilla, which is a flaky pie filled with chicken and pungent spices, sprinkled with powdered sugar; a choice of entrées; nutty baklava; and sweet mint tea. Entrées are mainly hearty tagines (spicy stews of lamb, chicken or hare), couscous dishes, or a variety of brochettes. Groups may order the dramatic mechoui, a traditional item featuring a whole sheep grilled over a spit. Belly dancers provide music and entertainment.

Rude service ruined our evening

I deeply regret the evening I spent at Marrakesh. The food was OK although overcooked, but the service was very poor. My wife and I left feeling like we had been ripped off and it spoiled what had been planned as a special occasion.
