Amaia is a small restaurant in a modern style situated in the new town area of Marrakech. We had to traverse road works to enter after our taxi dropped us off but once inside the journey out there proved very worthwhile.
The menu was French influenced but with Moroccan choices as well. We chose two Moroccan wines from the wine list which we found very drinkable. The owner, who was affable and attentive, is a Scicilian raised in France which is reflected in the menu and indeed in reverse by us starting as we did with a pastis and ending with a grappa and espresso.
The Rum Babas for dessert were a particular hit. Oh dear, this is sounding a bit like we consumed nothing but alcohol while we were there which is largely true but I can confirm that we did actually eat as well and that it was superb.
An excellent value for money evening for what was probably a third less than you might expect to pay in the UK for the same quality. I highly recommend it.
