Latitude 31, a gastro in the heart of the Medina


Here’s an address to keep for your next trip to Marrakech: Latitude 31, a Moroccan gastronomic restaurant in the heart of Marrakech’s Medina just a minute walk from Bab Doukala. Tested by yours truly, we are happy to tell you about this new thing to do in Marrakech unveiled by Marrakech Insiders as it surely is a winner!


Marrakech Insiders - Latitude 31


Both welcoming and confidential, you will be surprised like we were by its discreet entrance, its lovely interior court covered by cement tiles and its atmosphere which will take you to another place after wondering the busy Streets of the Medina.


You will be greeted like a friend would greet you. The Menu is where the fun is, you will find a panel of local dishes, which have been revisited, a vegetarian section has just been added to the Menu.


Our heart goes to the selection of contemporary Moroccan salads, followed by a gorgeous Madarebale tajine, a chicken with roasted tomatoes and honey and thyme flavoured potatoes. Impossible to stop there when you will have tasted their duo of crème brulee lightly flavoured with amlou and cardamom.


For the more reasonable people out there, we have also tested the beef filet with potatoes and seasonal vegetables or the spinach raviolis with cheese, dried tomatoes and its mushroom sauce from the Atlas Mountains which turn out to be perfect for vegetarians. As a bonus, the amuse bouche offered by the restaurant is to die for.


Marrakech Insiders - Latitude 31


A very nice evening in perspective which is surely worth your time and money. Expect to pay around 300 MAD per person for starters, main and desert. Latitude 31 is only open for dinner at this time (closed on Sunday) but we heard through the grapevine that things may be about to change! Stay tuned!

Marrakech Insiders, one of the best things to do in Marrakech



A few years ago, Rachel, born and raised in Switzerland, discovered by chance the ocher city. But what followed was in no way due to chance. Her curiosity was thoroughly aroused, she strove, in the course of her academic work, to reconstruct the puzzle of the architectural heritage of Gueliz. She went through tons of archives, interviewed the city's living memories and explored its sleepy nooks. Today, Rachel tells her stories on a shiny sidecar and published a book with Editions Sarrazines & Co retracing all her finds on the Gueliz.
