REVIEW

Le Tobsil

One of Marrakech’s most distinguished restaurants, Le Tobsil is situated in an old palace deep within the tentacles of the Medina.  Its opulent, old-world interior is warm, romantic and very stylish.  The faded yellow-ochre walls of the courtyard set off beautiful pale green doors and bold red table skirts and rugs.  The white tablecloths are strewn with rose petals and everything glows through the illumination of sensuous candlelight.  Live Gnaoua music plays softly in the corner. 

The sumptuous interior is complemented by the banquet-style feast that inexorably follows.  Tobsil means “dish” in Arabic, but your meal is likely to begin with about 15 different dishes of Moroccan salads - mushrooms with cheese and shallots, zucchini, celery and garlic, cauliflower, olives with lemon, dates with cheese, red pepper with raisin, sweet tomato and cheese.  Meals also include two tajines, generally chicken and lamb, followed by fruit and pastries for dessert.  Le Tobsil is regarded by many as the preeminent restaurant in Marrakech if not all of Morocco and it’s not hard to see why.
