Restaurant Marrakesh reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Restaurant Marrakesh, a table service restaurant in World Showcase - Morocco at Epcot.
Written by Robert Niles
Morocco was a later addition to World Showcase (in 1984), but is the only national pavilion actively built and still sponsored by its host country. In the the pavilion's table service Restaurant Marrakesh, there is a replica of the letter sent from the King of Morocco to George Washington congratulating him on independence, because Morocco is one of the United States' first allies. In deference to Islamic practice, the pavilion does not light up during “Illuminations: Reflections of Earth,” because of the religious nature of some of the art and architecture in the pavilion, including the main tower, which is a replica of a prayer tower.
At lunch, Restaurant Marrakesh serves couscous, kebabs, and lemon chicken, for $15-20. A four course "Taste of Morocco" option is available for $28. Dinner prices go up $5-10 for entrees, with the addition of roast lamb and a fish tagine, for around $28. There are two multi-course "Taste of Morocco" options at dinner, for $42-45.
Kind of hard to find, but often does not require reservations. Food was very good (and I can be a bit picky, too) and the entertainment (belly dancing) was fun, too. I'd actually say this is one of EPCOT's hidden gems, since I am not sure everyone knows about it. 8.5 / 10. - Tom Nikl
I ate here once and I wasn't impressed. The food and service were OK but the restaurant doesn't compare to the other restaurants in EPCOT. I wouldn't consider dinning here until you've been to Germany, France, Canada and Mexico. - Mickey Black
