The riad experience
Did you know? The word “riad” means garden. This boutique hotel is its own Eden. The garden of this destination isn’t just in the quiet patios with palm trees. The same freshness is in the restaurant’s menu.
The cuisine is typically Moroccan and it features local, seasonal ingredients. You can choose between the menu à la carte and the made to order dishes.
One of the main courses is the Aid Mubarak, which in Arabic means “blessed feast.” It features lamb, seasonal fruits, honey, and toasted almonds. If you prefer the made to order, you should try the Beldi Couscous. It’s hand-rolled and you can choose between the vegetarian option or the beef one. The dessert list is a mix of French heritage and Moroccan flavors. Like the Choukran!, which translates to Thank You. It’s a shortbread pie with lemon cream and fresh raspberries.
To get ready for dinner, you can enjoy the hammam SPA. It’s always massage time in Marrakech.
