Restaurant Marrakesh in Epcot – A new fantastic sight to see!

Wasn’t sure quite what to expect when we walked in here – we happened to stop in on our search for Princess Jasmine — but it was beautiful, amazing, entertaining, and quite filling!! We didn’t reserve a table and luckily, there were plenty. The entrance is beautiful, with two hostesses in traditional Moroccan garb in a carpeted and ornate entryway – the children were fascinated.

Visitors have a chance to sample exotic Moroccan cuisine while enjoying Moroccan entertainment (see belly dancer, below – she even came over and invited the kids to dance!). The belly dancer performs once an hour all day.

Surrounded by scents from the mid-east, visitors can sample Bastilla appetizers (meat or seafood baked in a thin pastry with vegetables or almonds), traditional couscous and kabobs are also on the menu.

This place is really filling.

    I remember my first visit to this restaurant. It was back in 1986 or 87, and I went by myself – because my friend didn’t feel well and stayed at the hotel. I was around 19, I think, and I had not been exposed to some things like belly dancing. As I sat there eating my soup, this woman came out and started dancing to the music – I still remember my spoon falling out of my mouth 🙂
