When on holiday, we all enjoy one aspect more than the rest – whether you prefer to spend your time going to museums or exhibitions and finding out more about the place you are visiting, or would rather seek adventure at amusements and water parks, or whether you would simply appreciate dining at restaurants that serve really good local and international food at breakfast, lunch and dinner (like me).
If the latter is what you are interested in, you will find when researching and planning your holiday to Morocco that the dining options vary wildly from hotel to hotel and restaurant to restaurant. There’s large selection of restaurants to choose from that serve delicious traditional Moroccan food and others that serve European cuisine, meaning you will be able to try a wide variety of delicious food options while you’re there.
If you don’t know where to start your food journey, you could visit a different restaurant each night of your stay. Or, better yet, you could try a variety of food every night at one of these eight buffet restaurants instead, each offering high-quality dishes you’ll enjoy and remember:
Market Place Grill Restaurant at Mazagan Beach and Golf Resort, El Jadida
Step into The Market Place Restaurant, a sumptuous buffet (come grill, bar and luxury dinner restaurant) offering the colours and aromas of the Middle East, North Africa, India and Asia combined. Once you’ve had your fill of their grill buffet why not head over to their dessert counter where you will find a selection of all things sweet. Try one or two of their many Moroccan pastries, fruits, ices and sorbets to finish off your meal.
Les Jardins d’Ines Restaurant, Marrakech
For a spot of brunch on a Sunday, visit Les Jardins d’Ines Restaurant. Whether you’re looking for a lazy afternoon by the pool after a busy day exploring the streets of Morocco, or you fancy spending some time with your family catching up over a good meal, you can expect creative hot and cold food and scrumptious desserts that will fill you up and keep you satisfied for the rest of your day.
Le Paradisier at Movenpick Hotel and Casino, Tangier
Enjoy Le Paradisier’s gastronomic breakfast buffet on the terrace by their pool. They have a wide variety of mouth-watering foods that will have you going back for seconds (and quite possibly thirds). Start with a plate of Moroccan pancakes or a bowl of cereal, then go for the full English breakfast (with all of the trimmings) for your ‘main course’. You won’t want to miss out on this one!
ClubHotel Riu Tikida Palmeraie, Marrakech
Their main buffet restaurant has a lot to offer, with a huge selection of goodies for breakfast and dinner. They also have two themed restaurants on the premises that are buffet-style too, serving Italian and Moroccan dishes along with enjoyable themed entertainment. Their offerings change every day with plenty of choice at all meal times.
Brunch at La Mamounia, Marrakech
Greeted on arrival with a glass of champagne, Sunday brunch at La Mamounia in Marrakesh is one you’ll never forget. Expect to find fresh seasonal products (picked straight from their kitchen garden), a selection of seafood, tagines and salads on offer at their buffet – but of course, that’s not all. Satisfy your sweet tooth at the end of your brunch with a freshly baked pastry or two – because there’s always room for dessert!
Kasbah Hotel Chergui, Erfoud
Kasbah Hotel Chergui has a large restaurant on their premises with an indoor and outdoor buffet – weather dependant. They serve up traditional Moroccan dishes at their large buffet as well as European cuisine with something to suit everyone. If you’re the adventurous type, try some of their typical local cuisine.
Hotel Argana, Agadir
There’s something to tingle everyone’s taste buds at this delightful buffet. Their team of professional and international chefs use only the finest quality local produce to cook a delicious selection of food that changes throughout the week. The restaurant has a real Moroccan feel to it and specialises in both International and Moroccan cuisine with a wide selection of meats, fish and salads available. You are sure to enjoy your meal at this little buffet while looking out over the hotel’s luscious garden and crystal blue pool.
Solano at the Four Seasons, Marrakesh
Expect nothing but the best at the Four Seasons. Every morning they serve up an international breakfast buffet with meats, freshly bakes pastries, fruits, yoghurt and much more. At night, the space transforms into an exotic Moroccan fare with an amazing selection of local food to choose from. But what makes this spot special is the two bread ovens that sit centre stage in the middle of the restaurant. They make the dining experience at Solano interactive and aromatic. While you dine, enjoy incredible views of the rest of the resort from the terrace.
When looking for and choosing your dream Moroccan holiday from one of the many luxury Morocco holidays out there, be sure to try a buffet or two during your trip – you won’t be disappointed!
