Marrakech Moroccan Las Vegas

As soon as I walked into Marrakech Moroccan restaurant we were greeted by the owner Tariq and the environment and mood made me feel alive! The belly dancer was working her way through the tables of patrons, the music was captivating and I was ready to eat, enjoy the show and dance!

We had the Prix Fixe 6 course menu. Every dish was tasty! Loved the shrimp with lemon/garlic sauce, beef & chicken was so moist and dessert was divine!

Just when I thought I couldn’t eat anymore the next dish would come out. I ate EVERY last bite. It was too good to pass up! I didn’t care how full I was…and that’s where the belly dancing came in!!!!
