The smells, the colours, the culture … wow, just wow. This is Marrakech. These are the best tips for Marrakech.
Marrakech had been on my bucketlist of travel destinations for a long time. Earlier in 2019, I had decided to work a week remotely somewhere in the world and I had settled on Dubai. Later that year, several things coincided: I needed some time away from the office to focus on more long term strategy, I needed some focussed time after my Kilimanjaro climb and the hotel rates in Amsterdam were just insane. Plenty of good excuses to finally visit Marrakech; so here are the best tips for Marrakech – according to me.
My favorites in the beautiful city of Marrakech:

My best omakase experience in Marrakech
The Japanese habit of omakase (お任せ) when you’re ordering at a restaurant pretty much means, “I’ll leave it up to you”, inviting the chef to be innovative and surprising in the selection of dishes. I try to do it in every city I visit, and apply the idea behind to everything between how I pick my runs, how I pick my food, how I plan activities with my kids, how I explore cities and how I travel in general. So, I tried this in Amsterdam as well.

The best places for dinner in Marrakech – according to me
Food in Marrakech is just … wow. Food from all the colourful markets around town, street-food stalls and cafes is not only delicious, it’s often cheap, too – and a great way to Marrakech.
- Le Jardin
- Limoni Off the beaten track in the quiet Bab Taghzout neighbourhood, this charming Italian eatery is a real find, popular with locals and expats looking for cucina all’italiana alongside a modern, light interpretation of Moroccan cuisine, plus a good choice of vegetarian dishes. Adriano Pirani, an architect from Bologna, chose to renovate this beautiful riad as a restaurant rather than hotel, and the tiled courtyard of fountains, mosaics and lemon trees is perfect for a romantic alfresco dinner. Chef Valerio Arciona has clearly been influenced by local flavours, so try his tangy carrot veloute with ginger, powdered almonds and lemon zest, a classic seafood spaghetti using plump local clams or, for the brave, a juicy camel burger with orange-spiced onions.
