“Delicious and authentic Mediterranean cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

Marrakesh is by far the most enjoyable restaurant in Jacksonville, NC. Every detail of your experience at this Mediterranean haven will bring you sensory satisfaction. From the aromatic entrées to the cultural decor, you will feel as though you've left the States far behind.

A large group of my fellows and I visited Marrakesh for a celebration. The management allowed us to use the entire back room for our event and ensured that our every requirement was met.

The menu appears designed to cater to a variety of tastes.
Every member of my party who commented had high praise for this establishment's food. After multiple visits, I have not found anything that I haven't thoroughly enjoyed.

If you have been looking for authentic Mediterranean food in the Jacksonville area, Marrakesh is the location to visit.

“Simply Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

If you are not a fan of Middle Eastern food before you try Marrekesh, you will be when you leave! The food is so superbly done that it will not matter what cuisine you like - it is that good! If you are a Med or Middle Eastern food fan, and something is not on the menu, then talk to Aram and he will probably make it for you on your next visit. Well priced, generous portions, and an atmosphere that is something between Casablanca and Ramallah. A first in any restaurant - the stuffed grape leaves are made fresh and served hot.

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

In this town filled with chain restaurants, this family-run business is a must try for date night or a family dinner; there really is something for everyone. If you are not familiar with Lebanese food, it could make you a convert. Tonight there was a belly dancer and henna artist who come once a month. The food is very good, that staff is very friendly, and the atmosphere feels genuine.
