We arrived early for our 7:20 reservation to find a packed waiting area, and were told we'd be seated "soon" which is apparently 35 minutes. Our expectations were dropping with every minute we stood waiting in the cold, but once inside, it felt a world away from the craziness of Epcot. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. The live musicians and belly dancer were entertaining (although perhaps the reason for their inability to maintain reservation times - the dance was long so if people stay to watch, it would easily add 10 minutes to their schedule). During our entire meal, we only saw her dance once so I can definitely see that some people might extend their dinner to see it. Not sure what to tell you except to make reservations, go early, and be prepared to stand. They don't have pagers, either, so you have to listen for your name... A little old school, don't you think? I say get some pagers, add more dances, and the wait for reservations problem is solved!

We have been scared to try this restaurant because of the type of food and some of the other reviews BUT this last trip we just made reservations and didn't debate it. It was great... one of the nicest servers we've ever had at WDW. We tried the Royal Feast (for the variety) and it was soooo good. All three of us loved it. During most of our meal they were playing music and the belly dancer performed also during our meal. If anyone is like we were and semi-scared of the type of food... set that aside, you're missing out! We all decided before we left that we will be going back to Restaurant Marrakesh. Incredible food and incredible service!!

We ate here on New Year's Day and had a wonderful meal. It was pricey but well worth it. The kids even tried hummus, coucous, & goat cheese! The service was superior and the entertainment included live musicians and belly dancers! The whole family said it was their favorite!

Food was delicious and servers were typically Disney friendly and attentive. Decor was nice and the tables weren't crowded together as in some other restaurants.

Located in the Moroccan Pavilion at Disney's Epcot Centre, it's a long walk from the entrance - the opposite side of the lake, so it doesn't matter which side you walk around to get there (you can always continue on the opposite side of the lake, after your dinner). Typical of most Disney World establishments, food was varied, well presented, service friendly and efficient, atmosphere and decor makes you think you are there (in Morocco). Entertainment is a Moroccan musical group and belly dancer - nothing risque and she does a good job of trying to get the little ones up to dance with her, so bring the kids. You can make reservations, which are always a good idea during a busy time. We had no problems getting the date and time we wanted. The restaurant was about half full during the entire time of our meal. We have been here on previous visits (the kids got up and danced when they were little - couldn't convince them to go again this time - late 20's - must be an age thing) and would return again.
