I am presently staying in Marrakech, Morocco. Here are a list of stories to come on Enjoy Food & Travel

Bars
  • January 16th to January 19th: Cafe Arabe
    A classy rooftop bar overlooking the narrow streets and with the tower of the Koutobia in the distance.  We indulged in a reasonably priced Cartier Champagne  every night (Only 700 Dh). One of the few bars serving alcohol in the old town
  • January 17th and January 19th: Cafe Atlas
    Local bar in the Gueliz area serving alcohol. Tons of the second hand smoke is what you pay, as you are only allowed to enjoy it inside. 
  • January 18th: Terrasse de l'Alhambra
    Great place at the Djemaa El Fnaa Square. Coffee overpriced by Moroccan standards, cheap at European prices. Free WI-FI

Hotels: 
  • January  15th to January 22nd: Riad Libitibito
    A beautifully restored Riad in the Medina with 5 rooms. It provides a quiet spot in the noisy city and the proprietors Tanya and Zacharia has proved to be the hosts of a dream. 
Restaurants: 
  • January 16th: Cafe Argana
    Tourist trap with a good view to the late night food market. To be avoided for everything than the latter. 
  • January 18th: Cafe Bougainville
    Reasonably prices, but hard to find something that tasted of anything.
    cuisine at very reasonable prices 
  • January 19th: Cafe de France
    Decent tourist trap at Djemaa el Fnaa. Good tagine, at very nice European prices.
  • January 19th: Palais Donab
    Decent meal in breathtaking surroundings. Excellent service, Berber music and belly dancing included.
  • January 16th and 18th: Portofino Restaurant
    Serving Italian as well as Moroccan cuisine. Very small servings of Italian, and large Moroccan. Expensive.
  • January 17th and 20th: Restaurante Italiano Casanova
    Rated as number 5th of all restaurants it provides a genuine style Italian cuisine at very nice prices. Try their bruschetta!!
  • Januar 20th: Riad LibitibitoEnjoying a home made meal at our Riad tonight. We will be served Fish pastilla and Tagine with Kefta and eggs.
  • January 15th and 17th: Terrasse des Epices
    Trendy and expensive in the Medina. Small portions.
Sights: 
We have visited most sights that I saw last night, so I am referring to my previous Marrakech site.
