There is a dining room at the Kasbah for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Cuisine is Berber-Moroccan. At the mountain refuges, simpler dinners are provided, as well as picnic lunches during the trek.
Breakfast, available early for keen hikers, is a local array of breads, jam, eggs and nuts. In good weather, breakfast and lunch are served outside on the stunning roof terraces.
For dinner don’t expect haute cuisine. Usually breads arrive in a vast pyramidal basket, followed by a simple flour-based harira soup eaten with a wooden spoon. The main course is usually a tagine or couscous served on a central dish - less spicy than elsewhere, perhaps to cater for western palates. After a simple dessert, the meal close with a mountain herb tea poured from a particularly impressive height, and said to settle your stomach before bed.
Please be aware the Kasbah is not licensed for alcoholic drinks so, if you fancy a tipple after your exertions, you are welcome to bring some wine or beer with you from Marrakech.
