Best place for lunch in Marrakesh

Best place for lunch in Marrakesh

La Maison de la Photographie is about a 5/10 minute walk north from Jemaa el-Fnaa square. It is a rambling old riad hidden away down a back street that is full of wonderful old photographs of the daily life and people of Morocco from 1870 to 1950. It is a calm and serene space which can be a welcome haven from the cacophony of activity, heat and smells outside.

Up on the roof it has a delightful terrace cafe that serves lunch. It is a simple no frills affair that usually serves about three classic options at great prices. It is small so often you will have to wait for a space but in my mind that means its good! I have eaten lamb and prune tagine as well as preserved lemon and olive tagine which came still sizzling to my table. They do really good mint tea and a fruit and yogurt dessert as well.

There is a panoramic view of the old medina from the terrace a lovely place to while away an afternoon.
