One of my favorite places to stop and enjoy lunch in Marrakech is the poolside restaurant inside the Dar Rhizlane hotel. This quaint spot serves international and Moroccan cuisine done in the most beautiful and elegant manner. The stunning hotel, with its ivy and flower covered exterior, is the perfect backdrop to bubbling fountains and white, puffy sofas – creating an indoor/outdoor living space. The food, which was Moroccan on the day I was eating at the restaurant, is phenomenal.
Lunch consisted of local specialties like zucchini, eggplant, cucumbers, chickpea, expertly prepared chicken tagine and more. Homemade bread was the perfect starter to the main event. I paired the meal with a cold glass of rosé – a wonderful match. This is a restaurant that feels chic, local and truly special.
