I booked this restaurant hoping to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday in style during our trip to Marrakech, which was exactly what the setup at Maison MK allowed us to do. I should also mention here that booking the restuarant via email couldn't have been simpler and the directions given in the confirmation email were clear so we easily navigated the maze of streets to find Maison MK.
We arrived at 7 for canapes on the terrace and enjoyed the choice on the drinks list, after a week of rather 'dry' meals elsewhere in Marrakech. The view of the sun setting over the Katoubia minaret from the terrace was beautiful. This was obviously not a coincidence; as with the whole evening, it had obviously been well thought out by the managers.
Once all the dinner guests had arrived, we were passed the menu to peruse, but it was ony the main course (course 3 of 5) that we were able to choose. I personally really appreciated being cooked the chef's freshest ingredients, and it stopped there being any 'food envy' for all but one course.
Once all the guests had ordered food and drinks for the meal (the wine list included maroccan wines, we went for the sauvignon blanc at around €24), we were then showed to our table back downstairs in the dining area. We were given the lovely private area at the far end. Next began dinner: five courses of gorgeous food, each carefully and helpfully explained by the waiter so that we could be sure of what we were eating.
The ultimate 'nice touch' of the evening came after course 5, when the waiter brought out a chocolate mousse with 'Happy Birthday' written in chocolate sauce for my boyfriend. They must have remembered from when I initially emailed to book it. Apparently it was gorgeous - the chef hadn't lost concentration there then!
Finally, once all of the plates had been taken away, the chef came to each table to thank us for coming, and ask if we had any comments about the food, good or bad. I'm afraid we couldn't think of any construtive points to help improve it further, only that it was delicious.
In summary, this was probably the highlight of our week in Marrakech. It's not the cheapest meal you could eat in the city (head for the Jemaa El Fna food markets if that's what you're after - great at the opposite end of the scale), nor did we have any tagine or couscous during our meal, but what we did have was a truly enjoyable evening of great food, great wine and fantastic service. As it seats so few, I'd recommend booking in advance and then saving up ready to enjoy it!
