Collier de la Colombe

The rooftop Terrace is really lovely. We had the couscous royale, which was excellent, with an onion confit along with it, and chicken and lamb. We also had the Atlas trout meuniere, good but not as good as the couscous. And we even had a bottle of wine. Nice experience, not expensive.

Kenza

Reviewed By Marco M - Milan, Italy

We arrived late in Meknes very late and found ourselves outside the shut doors of this restaurant. A local friend of the owner saw us and started shouting and knocking really loud to get them to re-open the place only for us. We couldn't really pick from the menu but we got excelllent tajine de poulet au prunes and we felt really welcome and cared for. We also had some amazing conversation with the old man who runs the shop, who gave us nice tips about the city and Morocco in english.

Reviewed By driann4

Vanessa came to get us from our Riad, she was very friendly and helpful for her food and her place but for a lot of facts and informations about Meknes. The food was good, the camel tajine was delicious, the lamb was good but not so tender. She took the time to bring us home after. That is a nice touch and that is why this restaurant is a really nice pace to go, eat and learn.

La Baraka

Moroccan Restaurant with Typical style located next to the Market ,90 Meters from CTM bus stop ,we served moroccan food ;Tagines ,Couscous ,Salads ,Harira ,in addition to the famous local food of Rissani Berber Pizza (Madfouna)

Reviewed By Jeroen P - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

For lunch we had a very good Berber omelet. This tasted very good. The restaurant is a bit hard to find, but somebody will guide you to this place, but of course then you have to go to the market as well .
For a nice price you get a large omelet.

Not only is the Fatima a nice place to enjoy a meal, but it is basically an "everything store" for the Merzouga area. They've got meals, they've got rooms, they've got bikes for rent (cheap!), they sell souvenirs, they'll put you on a camel... whatever you need!
But, yes, the meals are nice. They've even got a vegetarian option.

Reviewed By Samiya7 - Hollywood, Florida

This restaurant was recommended by our driver as one of the two available restaurants in town. You have to call and place your order one hour ahead of time. There are no menus and no prices listed anywhere. So everything is a surprise! Apparently you can order chicken or beef stuffed pizza. We were served a first course of very bland tasteless soggy rice with a line of soggy vegetables. We tasted it but did not really like it and if had a choice we would not have ordered it - we assumed we were charged for it. We had ordered one small pizza (which was enough for the 2 of us), but the waiter brought out 2 so we made him take one back. We are not sure if we were charged for that pizza. We ended up with a chicken pizza which is like the round flat bread they give you everywhere but it is stuffed with chicken and other things. We liked it. Lastly they brought out a plate of sliced oranges and dates. Our waiter also brought water which we didn't drink as we ordered cokes. Again we are not sure of we were charged for the water. Our bill was 170 dirhams. If you are the restaurant and you are Reading these, we tourists would appreciate transparency. Let us order what we want a la carte and provide a menu with prices. Thank you.

Riad Yacout Meknes

Reviewed By Jarek F - London, United Kingdom

A hidden gem! Far from beaten tourist tracks, yet at the heart of the city, on the doorstep of ancient medina. Impeccable service, most forthcoming staff. Layla makes the place feel like home. And if you were thinking of eating out - don't. The food in this riad is delicious, full flavoured and cooked with passion. Roof Terrace with a pool and a view of the old city compliment the experience.Thank you for a wonderful time.

Nasser Palace Restaurant

Reviewed By Rodrigo G - Arlington, Virginia

This is not for the faint-hearted chap, the frail adventurer, or the flimsy swashbuckler. The Nasser Palace will indelibly and ineradicably impregnate on-and-in you the spirit of the Foreign Legion, the vastness of the never-ending sands of the Sahara desert with its whispering howling winds, and the fogey mettle of the Touareg people. Moreover, the dark and fat desert scarabs will bloodcurdlingly remind you of the 1999 film: "The Mummy". (I guess I am supposed to say here: Nhyyaaaahahahaaa!?).
Well, the Nasser Palace's restaurant is something much, much different. After a long day cruising the sands of Erg Chebbi on an even-toed ungulate dromedary's back (the ones with one hump are not "Camels", so you know...), you are certainly thirsty, hungry, and of course, silted; so the only thing you want is a cold shower and an heartwarming dinner. The Nasser Palace stands as a bastion seemingly constructed by the "Legionnaires du Beau Geste" (1924 novel) with a restaurant that emulates the history, ambiance, settings, decorations, and spirit of the place, crowned by delectable "gourmandises" for the selective, nomad palate.
I gobbled delicious chicken and lamb kebobs, I devoured delectable and aromatic olives, I guzzled Moroccan bread and briouats slathered in exotic sauces that made me sigh, and I engorged sardines and real anchovies with leems (pickled lemons). The service was inviting and affable, and the music performed in the background by the Rwais (Cheuh Berber musicians) it was superb! The desert desserts are a must: stuffed dates, chocolate marzipan, apricots, figs, and petite fekkas with nigella seeds (those last ones are cookies, silly you!). Dromedary milk is always an option, but I passed on it... The Nasser Palace itself it is something you ought to do before you breathe your last. The prices, the variety, the quality, and the service are notable and stately for a remarkably remote post like this one. I shall return!
