Romantic and special meal

Interested in views on the restaurants we are considering for our one extra special meal in Marrakech next month.

Looking for a romantic setting and high quality food.

We won't be able to go to more than one of these, so tough deciding.

1. Les Jardins de la Medina

Looks very pretty, we wanted to stay here but out of our budget.

2. La Sultana

Love the rooftop setting and the idea of having a tour of the lovely building pre-dinner.

3. La Maison Arabe

Looks romantic, love the idea of fusion French type cooking.

Anyone been to some or all of these and can compare ???

We will be eating in each of our 2 riads as well and we are going on a 5 day trip inland so I think we will have had many tagines and traditional food, so the fusion French and fine dining options appeal for our other night in Marrakech .

Of course you can look up the many reviews of restaurants here on TA but have a look also at Dar Marjana,, Dar Moha and Le Tobsil. For a romantic and authentic meal I would recommend the latter.

I did not understand your comment about travelling inland - Marrakech is in the centre of Morocco.

What I meant was travelling beyond the city. We are going to Ait Benhaddou, Ouarzazate, Erg Chigaga and Agdz . On this trip we will have had our fill of tagines and traditional cooking , so I was looking for somewhere in Marrakech to have one meal not of this type .

Of your 3 choices I'd recommend La Maison Arabe though this is only my personal opinion. Book a table by the pool.

Thanks for the explanation UnaW. For cuisines other than Moroccan you could try I Limone (Italian), the Kosybar (menu includes Japanese sushi and sushimi), or Cafe Arabe (Italian), all of these being in the medina. In the new town, Guilez and Hivernage, look out for Azar (Lebanese), Bombay (Indian), Le Comptoir Darna (fusion menus), Le Grand Cafe de la Poste (French, excellent veal liver!) or Katsura (Thai). Loads of choices!

Dar Marjana, La Sultana, and La Maison Arab are the highlights to enjoy a special meal in Marrakech.
