3 rooftops you cannot miss when you visit Marrakech, Morocco

I know it has been a while since I last mentioned our trip to Marrakech, but (as you can probably see on both my Instagram and here), things have been pretty busy in Manchester and I’ve been wanting to cover everything immediately. So now that things are a bit more calmed, I’m sitting down to share with you my favourite rooftops in Marrakech.

If you saw my last two posts, specially the one where I talk about how we got lost in the souks, then you know that can be quite a chaotic scenario for anyone visiting Marrakech, but there’s a special beauty in these rooftop restaurants that give you the most amazing view at any time of the day, and here are my must see recommendations for your next trip:

We went to Atay on our last day and had some juices and dessert while waiting for the sunset. The view was gorgeous and the whole scene is incredibly peaceful. For a second you cannot even believe how is it that something so beautiful can also be so chaotic when you’re inside.

They have amazing prices when it comes to food, and I found it to be a great spot for pictures and a quick bite. I’d definitely recommend either doing what we did, or just grabbing lunch. You won’t regret it!

This place is also right in the middle of the souks, and gives you an amazing view of your surroundings, while still proving to be the perfect spot for lunch, which is what we did, or even for some cocktails later in the day, if you want to check the stars.

I promised myself that next time I visited Marrakech I was going to visit Terrasse des épices at night, because I’m sure it’ll be a completely different experience.

Trid with chicken, my favourite!

Food was delightful. We ordered some eggplant cannelloni with cheese as a starter, and then G had some chicken couscous, which was really yummy, but the star of the day was my trid with chicken. I can now say for sure that this is my favourite Moroccan dish, and I cannot wait to find a place in Manchester where I can get something similar.

Attention was amazing, and all the staff is really nice and helpful. If you want to have a delicious meal when you’re walking the souks, Terrasse des épices is a good place to do it.

Finally, if you don’t want to be right in the middle of the souks, or if you’re visiting the Tombeaux Saadiens or the Palais de la bahia, Kosybar is an amazing rooftop to visit for cocktails, or even for dinner!

We went here on our first night and loved the view and atmosphere of this place. We had some wine and then dinner, and it was one of the most magical nights. It’s nice and quiet, specially compared to the souks, and even if it’s not the most budget friendly places to visit, I’d still recommend it if you want to treat yourself to a nice dinner, or if you’re celebrating something special during your trip!

Attention was also incredibly nice here, and our server made sure that we were happy and had everything we needed at all times.

    Great post! It’s good to have food recommendations as when I went to Marrakech I ended up with the same chicken tagine every night! I need to try the eggplant cannelloni with cheese and trid with chicken. Also, handy to know which restaurant/bars serve alcohol…

      Definitely! I did some research before our trip to avoid that, and that’s why I thought it’d be so handy to share my favourite picks.

    If the sunset hasn’t swayed me to visit Marrakesh, the food and those smoothies certainly have! I love how you managed to find some calm and serenity in the hustle and bustle of the souks!

      You definitely need to put Marrakech on your list, Marianna. It’s the most enriching and amazing experience I’ve ever had!
