Wonderful Experience

This is the first time we have tried Moroccan food and hence can't say that it is better than any we tried before. Eating with bare hands is not new to us. We have tried Malay food on several occasions needing to use bare hands. The 5-course set dinner consist of 4 fixed dishes and you are only... read more

I have not been to Morocco and therefore cannot comment on the authenticity of the food. But it was delicious! I went with the 5 course and loved the lamb targine with eggplant and the appetizer - a meat pie with paper thin crust. The lamb was juicy tender and melts in your mouth. We also ordered cuscus with lamb... More

We went there spontaneously and I have to say it was amazing. The food was great, the waiters friendly and the value you get for the price was great. The decoration was very beautiful and you felt like in Morocco. Another highlight was a belly dancer, which made the experience even better. I'd recommend that restaurant to anyone that wants...

I really enjoyed myself at this restaurant. Got a five course meal for $19.95. Plenty to eat and the meal was very good. The waiter was fun. I would go back again. Next time I go to Seattle it will be first place I go to.

We wanted to tr something different and had a wonderful experience at Marrakesh. you dine as if you are in a tent, with a belly dancer to entertain you while you dine. The dishes were all tasty and nicely presented, the wait staff attentive and courteous.

Definitely a unique restaurant with a wonderful atmosphere. The experience through all 5 courses was tasty and memorable. The prices are unbelievable for the portions and excellent flavors! We were lucky enough to catch the end of a belly dancing show. For the entertainment, the food and flavors, the overall experience - this is a fun, unique stop in Seattle!

After talking about it for weeks, we finally worked out schedules and together with four other friends, we got to try out the Marrakesh Moroccan Restaurant in Seattle! It was our first visit but definitely not our last. The menu is quite varied and interesting but in the end we all decided upon having the "Royal Feast" and it was... More

We were recommended this place before we arrived in Seattle, so we had to check it out. It was an easy walk from our hotel(Marriott Waterfront). We were seated at a nice table in the corner. Our server was friendly and explained the menu along with the house recommendations. Once we ordered we had our hands washed table side. The... More

Just finished dinner at Marrakesh. The staff were wonderful, very nice and helpful. The dancer was talented, and had a great personality. The food was good overall, I had the spicy lamb (not at all hot, but very flavorful. My wife had their best chicken dish...very plain.

This restaurant is in the Bell town area of Seattle on 2nd Ave and it can be hard to find parking nearby. After driving around for 15 minutes we paid almost $8.00 for two hours parking. Our reservation was at 8:00 pm on Saturday evening. We had to wait 15 minutes in the tiny entrance, crowded with other people waiting... More

Thanks for coming in and dining with us. Saturday nights are always our busiest nights and can be unpredictable when it comes to those that come in without a reservation. So we do appreciate you made a reservation ahead of time. As far as pricing, we believe that our 5 course dinner provides an incredible value at only $20. Very... More
