Just back from first trip to Morocco. Marrakech is a really busy place, thousands of people and motorbikes, we were far from relaxed as our Riad wasn't great..... That's another story !
In an attempt to salvage the weekend my wife sent an email to MK in hope of getting a table the next evening. They came straight back to us, and fortunately had 1 left.
Arrived at MK at 7pm , welcomed with a smile and directed to the roof terrace for a drink . Walking through, you quickly realise the owners have spent 2 years and a fortune renovating and creating a top spec Riad.
(If you told me it was £1m it would not surprise me...could me more!)
Terrace very atmospheric, open air with fire pit and candles. Evening prayers were starting, so all the mosques were calling out across rooftops, just added to Arab mood and remind us where we were.
Drinks were particularly welcomed as 95% of old town is strict Muslim and therefore "dry". Moroccan wine is decent , and about 20 euros a bottle , a beer about 5. Bar staff very friendly.
Menus brought to us, whilst we had our drink, and a few canapés . It's a €55 a head 5 course, but you can choose 1 of 3 mains.
Escorted downstairs , dining room was nice, but dare I say a tiny anticlimax as the roof was SO nice. It's not a big restaurant, as obviously it's a small hotel of only 5 rooms, so atmosphere was provided by soft background music and just the four or five couples in the room.
Starter was a pumpkin soup.
2nd- an aubergine and melted Camembert "stack" (sorry there were other ingredients! Can't remember )
For main I had v fresh John Dory, Wife had Lamb. Both delicious.
4th - sorbet
Dessert - home made mint ice cream, with fig Tirimasu
Coffee & petit four
Bottle of Rose, and Bottle House Merlot.
I think it was under €160.
Ignore reviews about you can get it cheaper elsewhere in town or it's expensive. MK are delivering a top quality product. Go in with your eyes open, possibly spending about £100 for two with drinks and you can relax .
Will definitely go back if we are in town. fully recommend and next time we are going to stay!
Staff are a credit to the place, friendly, attentive without bring overbearing .
Saved my anniversary weekend after all :-)
