The former home of the Pasha of Marrakesh and then of French fashion designer Pierre Blamain, Dar Moha was the first of many private homes in Marrakesh to be converted into a restaurant. It is now one of the city’s finest restaurants, serving nouvelle cuisine marocaine in a 19th century riad with a lush courtyard in which tables are sprinkled along the edges of a beautifully lit mosaic pool under the shade of large palm trees.
The lush setting is complemented by live Gnaoua and Andalusian music and an extensive tasting menu that consists of updated versions of traditional Moroccan dishes. The best of these include a gigantic spread of “Moroccan Salads”, the sweet pigeon pastry called Pastilla that is a specialty of Morocco, and the best fish tajine we had in Morocco, composed with sea bass. The chef, Moha Fedal, cooked for many years in Switzerland and his international bearing is evident in the preparation of the dishes. As with most restaurants in the Medina, Dar Moha is not very easy to find, but the effort is rewarded with an immensely satisfying dining experience in a romantic, elegant setting.
