Chez Ali restaurant

Chez Ali, Marrakech, Morocco

A dinner and show package was included in our tour itinerary. Arriving at Chez Ali, you walk down a long corridor filled with musicians and dancers dressed in traditional costume in different groups. You pass them and sit in one of the many Arabian like dinner tents where tables are laid for diners.

For dinner, we were served couscous, tajine among others and fruits for desert. Dinner was good although nothing to write home about as we have tasted similar dishes in our hotel. During the course of our dinner, we were treated to a varieties of tribal music inside the tent by the cultural troupes we passed-by earlier at the entrance.

After dinner, an equestrian show started outside the tent in an open-air arena. Nights are chilly so better wrap up to keep warm. About 20 riders on horseback, some seems unable to handle their horses, did a handful of very basic acrobatics. Otherwise, they ran around the pitch shooting their guns a couple of times. If the food is nothing to write home about, the horse show is nothing to write more here.

All in all, this is commercial dinner and entertainment show.
