Fodor's Expert Review Dar Yacout
One of Marrakesh's luxurious five-course gastronomique experiences, the palatial Dar Yacout is in a house designed by Bill Willis as a One Thousand and One Nights restaurant. It has become an institution serving a traditional Moroccan feast, with huge servings, so come hungry to make the most of it. Its location deep in the medina only adds to its mystery. Aperitifs are taken on the rooftop with stunning panoramic views of the Koutoubia Mosque. Dinner, including drinks, costs 700 DH and is served in several different settings: beside the pool on the lanterned terrace; in a vaulted upstairs room; in an intimate glassed-in salon; or in the lush, cushion-filled main salon. Courteous, discreet waiters in white djellabas and red fezzes scurry about to fulfill your every need. This is an exotic experience in a magical setting and alcohol is served.
