Marrakesh Restaurant Review: Most guests of Marrakesh 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. Larger groups may order the dramatic mechoui, a traditional item featuring a whole sheep grilled over a spit. The ambience is half the fun: you sit on the floor, leaning against plush cushions while the waiter pours mint tea from on high and brings rosewater for cleansing the hands (traditionally, Moroccans eat with their hands, but dubious Westerners may request silverware). Belly dancers provide entertainment.
