Let me preface this review by saying my husband is Middle Eastern and I am Greek, so we have enjoyed lots of wonderful homemade, authentic Mediterranean food. After having eaten seafood for a week in Topsail and Emerald Isle, we happened upon Marrakesh. We were so glad we did--it was some of the best Middle Eastern food we have ever... More

One of the best places to eat in Jacksonville. Always good food and consistent. If it's not busy ask for a chef special of a "philly steak" Mediterranean style

On vacation in Topsail and planned on a movie and then dinner close by. As my Father was Lebanese, we all thought Marrakesh was THE place to go! It was fabulous! We had so many wonderful appetizers, only 2 (of 6) had dinner! But the best part was as we were getting ready to leave we learned they made Kibbeh... More

This restaurant has everything - atmosphere, interesting drinks (especially the non-alcoholic ones incredibly!), great food and the best service I've had pretty much anywhere. Angel, our waiter, made this a 5-star review! Will come back here every time I'm in Jacksonville.

One of the better restaurants in town, hummus...yummy, cucumber salad...yummy, salmon kabobs...awesome! Highly recommend Marrakesh for a change of taste from the other ho-hum cuisine in town. The wait staff have always been attentive and accommodating.

No, really...I could eat this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Everything is outstandingly consistant every time we go (which is at least once a week). The appetizers are all fantastic...we haven't made it through all the appetizers but so far, the kibbeh, labneh, spinach sleeve, and hummus have all been delicious served with fresh pita--ask for some tzatziki, it just...

Ok- we had another errand in Jax but eating here was worth me tagging along! The service was great. The decor was very very nice (not the picture shown here, but the other 1/2 of the restaurant by the bar was so pretty!!). Our food was amazingly fresh and perfectly seasoned. The salads were both the best we've had. Good... More

I came here a few months ago while visiting my sister. After reading reviews and their website, we decided to call and see if they have hookahs. Surely they did! We walked in and the staff were welcoming as we took in the decor of the place. Definitely something different and unique for Jacksonville. Jen was our waitress. She was... More

Marrakesh is a great change from all the boring chain restaurants that line the streets of Jacksonville! The food was fresh and amazing, the staff was friendly and ready to answer any question! I was unfamiliar with the cuisine and felt very well taken care of with my servers great suggestions. Bottom line I will definitely be eating here again!
