    What is a great, non-touristy, maybe a little avant garde but authentic Moroccan restaurant in Casablanca with alcohol, fit for foodies?

    You are unlikely to find somewhere like this in the cities. More likely you will need to get to the rural locations. In my experience of Morocco this is the case, I have dined in the city and the rural areas and always without exception the rural restuarants and eateries provide by far the best food and authentic exerience. Avant Garde may be a little more difficult but Moroccans are resourceful and quite ingenious people with Avant garde type flare, so it may well be possible to find somewhere to match your taste. I would suggest exploring down the coast from Cassablanca or inland away from the main tourist areas. If you are prepared to travel down the coast you will find some beautiful places to dine and explore. I can tell you of one place in particular that serves some of the best food that I have ever tasted is. Hotel Aertih in Mirleft, there are others but this place does good food. over 5 years ago

    I am traveling to Morocco in January with my wife and daughter. Any suggestions on what to do or where to stay in Casablanca and Marrakesh?

    It depends on what type of holiday you're looking for. I can't really speak on Marrakech or Cassablanca, although I have driven past Cas and through Marr. I can say that Agadir is well set up for package tourism etc with great beach and some nice hotels, traditional markets around the city. However if you're looking for the real taste of Morocco and good winter activities, you should travel down the coast where you can visit Tiznit a beautiful town with a renowned silver market, further down the coast is Mirleft a small developing town where you can real feel the real Morocco, with some beautiful beaches and good surf schools. Also there are bicycles mopeds and quads for hire, for journey's up into the hills. Between Tiznet and Mirleft and about 20/30 min from Mirleft is a place called Nigel's Place. Nigel is a british expat who has beautiful accomodation and offers tandem paragliding flights, (my only interest in this, is that I am a paragliding instructor from Wales UK that spends time here twice a year, teaching students). In Mirleft there is a small intimate hotel called Hotel Abertih run by a french guy Damian. you can check out his website www.abertih.com Here also you can connect with one of his staff, a guy by the name Sliman he is Berber and can give you a guided tour of the area and his home village and camel market and the most beautiful Argan oil,(a real treat). There are tour minibuses that operate out of Agadir and maybe there could be a good base to start out from. Flights to Agadir are reasonable, usually around £150rtn, you could pay more but you don't need to and there are good deals to be had in some of the hotels around the beach area. If you'e a foody, then the best food will always be away from the cities and in the more rural areas in, fact generally the more rural, the better the food. Always haggle prices and always be clear on the price of things and be sure that you have agreed the price of your taxi before the journey starts. If you hire a car beware of speed traps and on the spot fines. If this does happen you can negotiate with the police on the amount of the fine, I would suggest opening negotiations with not more than £10. (cont over 5 years ago

    (continued). Don't be worried by any authorities in Morocco, be polite but be firm with them. They tend to have a very officious way about them but really are pussycats. I'm sure, however you holiday there, that you will have a nice time. Morocco and it's people are beautiful and hospitable. over 5 years ago
