Turkish coffee and food are so delicious!

This is the best place to eat in Jacksonville! Plus, if you're lucky, you will catch a belly dance or henna event! You MUST try the Turkish Coffee, Starbucks will never measure up!

Stopped at this place on our way to Emerald Isle. By chance that was the night the belly dancer was performing. The restaurant was packed but we still managed to sit right away since it is pretty large. The food is very good, cooked right before your eyes. The show was a nice surprise and the dancer managed to entertain... More

Thanks to tripadvisor reviews, we chose this restaurant for dinner while traveling. We were not disappointed. We eat Mediterranean food frequently at home and had a great meal here. The service was gracious and attentive.

My husband and I decided to try Marrakesh for something different. We were seated in a cozy booth and absolutely loved the fresh homemade hummus and pita bread. I was a little disappointed our server knew nothing about the cocktails offered, but luckily they were delicious as well. The food is authentic and made fresh to order. We enjoyed our... More

We had a large family gathering with over 20 people. We had the large platters of Rice, various meats, salads and the Stuffed Grape Leaves. We also had a large pan of Baklava. The family loved it. they could not stop talking about it. Unbelievable food and at a very reasonable price. We have been going there at least once... More

One of the best restaurants in Jacksonville. Everything on the menu is great! The drink menu is very good and we love that this is a family owned restaurant and not another chain. They can accommodate large groups easily-good for a meeting or gathering with friends/family. Highly recommended!!

The dishes here are very fresh and tasty , their hummus is wonderful and the warm pita bread is perfect. I love the chicken kabob dinner , my husband who eats nothing but meat and potatoes loves their chicken kabob with yellow rice , he says it's the best! He also loves the desserts! Great non-chain restaurant.

Marrakesh has some of the tastiest REAL food menus in town! As a person that is extremely health conscious, this is a huge deal, and its really one of the only places in Jacksonville you can go where you know you're getting true home cooked Mediterranean food. I eat here at least once a week, and have brought my family,... More

The food here is delicious and different. If you have never tried this type of cuisine, go out on a limb and do it.
