Not perhaps the finest of the Moroccan restaurants in Marrakech but certainly one of the best known, thanks to Alfred Hitchcock, who shot his film The Man Who Knew Too Much here. Mamounia Moroccain happens to be a genuinely attractive location for dinner too, with a main room covered in carved stucco and Venetian chandeliers, and another circular room set in Mamounia’s art-deco style at the back, surrounded by an expanse of glass windows. Mamounia Moroccain seats around 130 people between the two rooms, so on busy nights quite an atmosphere can be generated, especially when the music gets louder and the oriental dancers come out to play. The menu is à la carte, full of traditional favourites and reasonably priced. There’s a rather delicious mechoui available for two people at 700dh. If you come for dinner take a stroll in the hotel’s fabulous gardens first.
