Restaurant Marrakesh what do you think of it?

I have scheduled an ADR for our upcoming trip for lunch. Four adults. We have never eaten here and I am looking for some honest reviews.

We love Restaurant Marrakesh! We have eaten there many times and everything we have had has been perfectly prepared and delicious! My favorite is the couscous...either vegetable or lamb. The bread they serve is fantastic as well. A musical trio and a belly dancer perform at regular intervals. It's a fun place for a meal. Enjoy!

We have eaten here a few times and LOVED it! It is unique and the food is really good. I think it is a very underrated restaurant!

Our Ratings of Restaurant Marrakesh: (3/16/2012)
. . . food price value: C
. . . food quality: B
. . . food quantity per serving: C
. . . food prep speed: C
. . . food selection: B
. . . seating quantity: B
. . . seating comfort: C
. . . eatery atmosphere: B
. . . eatery convenience: C
. . . staff friendliness: B
. . . staff attentiveness: B
. . . character interaction: n/a

NOTE: Restaurant Marrakesh serves flavorful specialties, using
a long list of herbs and spices including saffron. A favorite appetizer
bastilla (fried pastry) has layers of pastry with chicken seasoned
with Almonds, sugar and cinnamon. During lunch and dinner, a belly
dancer entertains with live Moroccan music (sensual, but not at all
risque). If you like new things (spicey) it is a good change of pace.

I like that it is hidden away. I visited the real Morocco in march 2012, and had an authentic Moroccan meal in Tetuoan. I enjoyed the meal. I think restaurant Marrakesh is on par with that meal. So for authenticity, it is great. We had dancers in Morocco too, but not a belly dancer. The Marrakesh atmosphere also rings true.

Give it a try.

I have to ask -- Why would you think anyone would give other than an honest review? .

We love Restaurant Marakesh. We have been multiple times and everything has been great. It is a beautiful restaurant, with warm friendly servers, excellent food and fun entertainment.
If the menu appeals to you, give it a go.

I very much liked it. The food was good although a bit toned down for middle eastern cuisine.

Service was excellent. The place itself was very nice. The decor was terrific.

I recommend it

DH and I ate there in October. The decor is very nice and the atmosphere is unique. There is entertainment at scheduled times, musicians and a belly dancer. The food was very good. Some items seem a little odd but they were very good. We would go again.

Tried it for the first time last year at dinner (2 adults) and we were pleasantly surprised; enough so that DH wants us to try for a walk-up lunch if we can get to the park early enough on our arrival day next year (not making an ADR for that meal because it's just begging fate to give us a whopping big flight delay).

Hi, we dined at Marrakesh last week for the first time and it ended up being one of my fav meals. I chose the Cous Cous M'Rouzia (sp?) which sounds weird on paper but it was gorgeous - I cleared my plate which was almost unheard of on our 18 night trip Our eldest DD went up to belly dance which she enjoyed. I tried the mint tea which was refreshing, our waiter was attentive and the atmosphere of the restaurant lovely. Would definitely visit again.

Yes, that's what I had too! If we get to go to Restaurant Marrakesh on our next trip it will be at lunchtime and this particular Couscous is not on the lunch menu, but I am definitely going to ask (beg?) for it.

It is one of our favorite restaurants at Epcot. Fairly easy to get a reservation and oft times can even do a walk up.

As others have said, the decor and atmoshpere is nice, but not for families with kids. You are just adults so you may like it!

Really? Not for kids? They took our daughter up on stage to show her how to dance. My girls really enjoyed this restaurant.
