#2 le jardin
This oasis of peace inside the Medina was around the corner of our Riad. It’s tucked away in between the tiny streets and souks of Marrakech, bending your neck to walk in the tiny door you step in to lift up your head into a different world. Their green hallway is filled with tiny mirrors on the wall leading you to the garden in the middle with lots of tall green plants, marble tables and moroccan touches. They even have their own little tortoise strolling around the garden. They serve traditional moroccan and middle eastern cuisine with a modern twist. We went here 3 times even, once for lunch, once for a refreshing drink and once for dinner. It’s so nice to have such a serene place to go to after being in the hustle and bustle of the Medina for the entire day! We loved their Moroccan carrot salad and their sweet mhhanncha with frangipane and pistachios. We also really recommend trying some of the mezzes, especially the carrot hummus and baba ghanoush bruschetta.
