    Set among gorgeous gardens and featuring a menu of local produce, Dar Zitoune is worth the visit from Taroudant. Serving a refined Mediterranean-style menu, it's a favorite with locals as well as with passing tour groups. Sit outside under citrus trees or inside in the large dining room and make the most of the opportunity to eat steak tartare or a Roquefort cheese–and-endive salad. The staff is courteous and speaks English well.  Reserve in advance, especially for special dishes such as couscous, mechoui (spit-roast lamb), or pastilla.

    A few miles outside town on the edge of thuya and olive groves, owner Abderrazak welcomes you warmly to his artisanal cheesery and open-air restaurant. Enjoy a fixed-menu lunch of salads topped with local goat- and sheep-milk cheeses, followed by (for nonvegetarians) a mechoui (lamb spit roast), and wine to complement. You'll find it hard to move after the feast.

    The passion in the name of this sophisticated restaurant is for Mediterranean-style food made from fresh, local produce. This means lots of seafood and pasta dishes, but also steak and stunning desserts. The experience starts with a generous plate of bread, dips, and an amuse-bouche and is further flavored with an extensive list of local and foreign wines. You can choose a cozy corner in the interior, or sit in the covered outside terrace with views over the marina. They'll even send a free shuttle to pick you up from your hotel.

    Taroudant's oldest family-run riad prides itself on its restaurant for good reason. While Habib greets the guests, his wife, Latifa, works wonders in the kitchen to produce a spread of salads, pastilla, tagines, or couscous fit for a king, not to mention the best pastilla du lait (a dessert of fine, crispy phyllo pastry layered with pastry crème) in town. Book in advance for lunch or dinner.

    This restaurant and bar with a Mediterranean menu is the place to be in the evenings. It's named after the wind that blows off the sea, which you can feel firsthand if you're having cocktails on the terrific rooftop terrace with views of the port. The menu includes seafood (try the Oualidia oysters when in season), hamburger, and roasted Camembert. At night a band or DJ plays on the roof to a hip crowd. On chillier evenings on the terrace, ask the staff for a poncho.

    Tucked away along the skala, this chic restaurant is a real treat, offering a daily changing menu—prepared in an open kitchen—that blends seasonal and local ingredients with French savoir faire. The airy restaurant draws in a clientele of expats and tourists with its muted dove grays, glossy white furniture, and quirky art touches, such as a gorgeous Gnaoua mural. Be sure to try the goat cheese from a women's co-op in nearby Meskala; you also can't miss the chocolate fondant with salted caramel ice cream.

    Behind a small blue door in an unusually buttressed wall, this quaint restaurant welcomes diners with a fig tree–shaded courtyard (hence the name) and Moroccan dishes, including a fish tagine, spiced chicken, beef brochettes, couscous, and pastilla.

    Fantastic camel tagines remain the highlight of the largely international menu at this beachside restaurant, as the name suggests. Like its neighbors, it caters to all audiences with candlelit tables, flat-screen TVs, live music, and a wine list. The restaurant also has a private beach area where you can rent a sun bed and get food and drinks delivered. It's not a great option for vegetarians, but everyone will enjoy watching the evening promenade along the beach.

    This popular, renovated riad filled with the artwork and collections of its host, artist Didier Spindler, offers an imaginative menu that is a fusion of Moroccan, European, and Asian flavors. The decor is an eclectic mix, with Buddha statues, pop art, and palm trees. There is nightly entertainment in the form of a band or fire eater, as well as a great wine list. The trio of desserts is the perfect sharing dish to conclude your meal (and often features more than three sweet delicacies).  It's recommended to make a reservation for dinner, particularly during peak tourist seasons.

    Set in beautiful gardens, Dar Caravane is a great choice for lunch and to escape the winds at the beach with a day by the pool. Like its sister restaurant (Caravane Café) in the town center, the menu fuses world flavors reflecting the travels of the owners, Didier and Jean-Paul. The menu is à la carte and the pool free to use, unlike many other similar properties, which charge a fixed price. There are also a few luxury suites for overnight stays, as well as a gallery, fashion boutique, and spa. Dinners can be arranged for groups and special occasions.

    Located in the heart of the medina, this unpretentious Moroccan restaurant is spacious and cool. Hidden among the extensive menu of couscous, tagine, and pastilla variations are a few refreshing surprises like a grilled zucchini short-crust tart or a marinated fish kebab.

    The French-style cuisine here draws mainly from what's fished fresh out of the sea each morning but changes regularly according to the chef's suggestion. The restaurant's panoramic views of the beach and the sea are an added plus, as is the great-value lunch menu. Located at the southern end of the beach, among the strip of resort hotels, it attracts locals, too, thanks to the French wine and pastries.
