There are quite a large number of restaurants where you can get a meal for less than 10 Euro. You just have to know which ones that have the best food, best service and the best ambience.

Besides our Top-5-Budget-List there are several other nice non-expensive restaurants also worth visiting, like Henna Art Café, Souk Café and Kui Zin.
And if you are adventurous you could always try the stalls down at the square Jemaa el Fna where you get tangines, mixed grills and even sea food for a few Euros. The atmosphere is magical here at night but be prepared of the being hustled by the numerous vendors who wants your business. Good tips are to go to the stalls where the moroccans go and always negotiate the price before sitting down.
So you see, you really don't need a silver fork to eat good food here in Marrakech!
Eat, drink & be merry,
