Bô-Zin in one of the international restaurants in Marrakech, pronounced ‘beau’, or ‘beautiful’ in French, means the same as ‘Zin’ – ‘beautiful’ in Arabic. No modesty here then, which is just as well since it’s currently the place in Marrakech where beautiful people like to strut their stuff and flaunt their goods, taking over from older dames like Le Comptoir as the place to see and be seen. The restaurant is chic Parisian in style and boasts a comprehensive international menu (French, Italian, Asian, Moroccan) served in an elegant but laid-back interior. The terrace is particularly pleasant, although it’s worth trying to get a spot in the alluring (and surprisingly intimate) garden. Dim lighting and soft music add to the mood, but as the night wears on the tunes gets louder, belly-dancers emerge from nowhere, and it’s not unusual to see punters clambering up onto the tables. With great food and an atmosphere and service to match, Bô-Zin is very much worth the trip out of town.
