DESCRIPTION

Windowless rooms with canopy-like ceilings set the scene at Marrakesh Moroccan Restaurant, since 1989 a casual and relaxing respite from the hustle and bustle of the hip, shopping-dining-nightlife of the Belltown neighborhood. Inside, layered rugs cover the floor, and exquisite tapestries hang on the walls. Diners sit at low tables on leather cushions while efficient servers in long robes attend to them, and beautiful belly dancers entice and entertain. The menu, like the atmosphere, is full of indulgent temptations — dishes spiced with an array of savory, sweet, spicy and sour flavors such as cinnamon, cumin and caraway. Order à la carte or choose a five-course, prix fixe meal. Recommended signature dishes include b’stilla royale (a buttery pastry wrapped around spiced chicken and toasted almonds) and tagine of chicken, which is braised Cornish hen served with preserved lemon sauce and olives. For a large party, there’s mechoui, a whole sheep cooked in a spit over a charcoal fire and seasoned with cumin and salt.

"The food at Marrakesh is solid, the flavors deep. Generous cuts of meat, complete with fat, are slow-cooked to soft perfection."
— Angela Garbes, The Stranger
ADDITIONAL DETAILS
Belly dancing Wed–Sun. Beer and wine available. Serving dinner nightly.
