Restaurant Review: Restaurant Marrakesh
Hello, it's Gabe here. This time I have a review of Restaurant Marrakesh in the Morocco pavilion at EPCOT!
Restaurant Marrakesh is one of two sit-down restaurants in the Morocco pavilion at Epcot, the other being Spice Road Table. Walking into Restaurant Marrakesh feels very much like you have stepped into a restaurant somewhere in Morocco, complete with the stylized woven rugs of the region and brass finishes. One thing to note is that the restaurant is at the very back of the Morocco pavilion, so it may be hard to find if you have never been there, or ventured into the Morocco pavilion much.
The menu is what you would expect at a Moroccan restaurant, featuring Mint tea, kabobs, cous cous, and baklava. The only thing I found to be odd was that the restaurant does not serve the Pomegranate Lemonade featured at most other Walt Disney World locations, including even on the Disney Cruise Line ships; I had figured that Restaurant Marrakesh would definitely have the drink since pomegranate is a very North African, Middle Eastern fruit and flavor. Barring that little hiccup with the drinks, the food was all excellent! On my visit I ordered the chicken kabobs, which comes with grilled kabobs that had pieces of chicken, bell pepper, onion, and mushroom; served with an olive salad of sorts, and cous cous that had golden raisins and I believe dates mixed through, although I could be mistaken about that one. The others in my party ordered cous cous bowls, which came with your choice of grilled meat, served over a bed of cous cous.

Overall, Restaurant Marrakesh provides a very good option for a good meal, complete with the authentic ambiance and flavors of the pavilion in which it is located. I enjoyed my meal here, and look forward to returning!
