Looking for a good place for Sunday brunch in Marrakech? Our recommendation is Crystal Restaurant Lounge, at the end of the Boulevard Mohamed VI, an area of Marrakech that features new hotels and nightclubs. While it may be best known for its vibrant nightlife, we like going late on a Sunday morning. Fati will greet you at the entrance and seat you in the beautiful outdoor terrace; and don’t hesitate to ask for Ludovic, the general manager, who is always on site.
Some of our favorites are the carrot gazpacho with courgette and feta, the star anise-flavored braised quince and the saumon en croute (salmon with olives and vegetable in a pastry shell). There’s a sinfully attractive dessert buffet to top it all off. We didn’t indulge, but the chocolate macarons look decadent.
The well-chosen music – contemporary afternoon lounge – adds to the relaxed chill out atmosphere. The pool is available for a dip, making it a great place to bring the whole family.
