Restaurant Naima

Tucked deep within the ancient walls of the Marrakech Medina, this tiny local eatery serves one dish each night. The plate, however, is perfect in every way. As advertised on the small sign indicating the entrance, the only food “Bon Couscous”. A bit more expensive than other couscous restaurants, but worth the few dirhams more for the attentive service. Details matter in this tiny eatery. While language may be a barrier, this family owned hole in the wall prepares a memorable family style meal replete with Moroccan flair. The food is simple and home cooked: a generous portion of falling off the bone chicken on a bed of perfectly cooked couscous surrounded by crispy chick peas and tender cooked root vegetables proved a belly filling, successful first meal in Marrakech. Mint tea is the only beverage on the menu—stop a few doors down for cold beverages and BYO bottled water or soft drinks.
