If you are in the process of planning a vacation to Morocco, then it is important to have your finger on the pulse of the best restaurants and haute cuisine in Marrakech, Fes (a UNESCO World Heritage site) and Essaouira. Eating in Morocco is an experience that is second to none when travellers pair their choice of travel agency with a uniquely Moroccan dining experience and stay in Riads or hotels that have been hand selected by the travel specialists.

The cuisine of Marrakesh, Morocco

Since the early 1990’s Marrakech, Fes and Essaouira have expanded their offerings for foodies and today some of the best cuisine in North Africa can be had in these places. They all boast delightful restaurants, professional chefs and haute cuisine that mélanges (blends) traditional  French and Moroccan cooking styles, plus an atmosphere that is uniquely Moroccan.

Moroccan Modern cuisine is in vogue. If you are planning a vacation here it is best to hit the ground running in the food category and come prepared to eat three and four course meals that are always complimented by fresh mint, sweet and nutty deserts, alongside some of the best local wine and beer.
