A touristy restaurant but one serving excellent food, and right at the centre of the Medina.
Don’t miss out on the sunset from the terrace!
At the heart of the Medina, very close to Rue des Consuls, is the almost secret restaurant of Le Ziryab, built in a restored riad that looks like a palace. Its unimpressive exterior, like most Moroccan architecture, hides an exquisitely decorated interior with half-moon arches, pillars reminiscent of the Great Mosque of Córdoba, and various different corners with distinct ambiences, so you’ll be sure to find the type of meal that suits you. It might be a business lunch in a private room, an intimate dinner for two, or a relaxing cup of tea on the sofas of the patio. Le Ziryab offers an authentic Moroccan experience, with waiters dressed in traditional clothing, live performances of local songs, delicious typical recipes and a roof terrace where can sit and watch the sun setting over the Medina. But don’t forget that this restaurant is firmly geared towards tourists, a factor somewhat reflected in the bill.
