My wife had 3 appetizers as her meal and I had the hummus appetizer and the lamb chops for an entree. Everything was prepared to perfection with good presentation. My ONLY "complaint" was server was aloof, distracted,... More

Stopped by Marrakesh last week, wife's choice.... But I really was supersized by the quality, and deliciousness of the food. The waitress was very patient with us, as I do not like to look at or read menus. She was very knowledgeable of the cuisine. The food was excellent and in good portion, cost wise eating. Will come back for... More

I have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. I tend to go for the lamb chops, but everything I have tried has been delicious. I particularly like the cucumber salad side dish and their rice is excellent.

My wife and I enjoyed Marrakesh several weeks ago. We purchased some appetizers and then our meal…Truth be told, on our next visit we just got appetizers, as our meal. Everything was delicious and FRESH! The service was prompt, the ambiance was nice, to include the soccer match on the large t.v. The lamb, tabouli salad, hummus, pita, shawarmas, cucumber... More

We visited Marrakesh because of Trip Advisor reviews. This place is a breath of fresh air in this town that has mostly fast food and chain restaurants. The food was exceptional and the service was friendly. We don't live here, but plan to return to Marrakesh on our future visits to Jacksonville. :)

Very good food, ambiance and prices! It offers a nice relaxed atmosphere. Not too big. They have tables in the area where the bar is located, much nicer that in the front.
