Had the opportunity to visit Le Carioca last night as had always wanted to sample the Brazilian-styled restaurant that opened just over a year ago. Unfortunately it appears to have changed hands very quickly. There is no Brazilian menu anymore, there is obviously a new chef and it serves exactly the same kind of food as can be found in countless other Marrakech restaurants nearby - a mix of French and Moroccan, plus burgers. I had also hoped there would be Latin music (as originally offered when it first opened), but instead an over-loud live singer performing Eagles and Ronan Keating covers to backing tracks. So alas, all the special elements that had been so promising when this place first opened are gone. But on the plus side, you can just go in for a drink or cocktail and smoke a shisha pipe. The margarita was good (80dhs).

new south american style eatery in the new town with a great value meat orientated menu which is very generous to say the least.Very efficient pretty staff which help create the buzzy atmosphere.Place really livens up around 21.00 when the house band plays. Mainly cuban the muscians are just fabulous and create a real party atmosphere which compares with most places we have visited on our world travels.For a fabulous night out and great food do not miss this one.

Begging the question why anyone would search out a Brazilian restaurant in Marrakech, our first visit was fun, bit like a canteen but good food. Second visit, VERY disappointing. Hardly any other guests so you would think the 6 waitresses would have been attentive, instead of standing around chatting. Food was so slow coming, sort of implying that you'd had your share, although the raison d'etre is great meat for as long as you can eat it.. When I commented on the lack of service and food, the maitre d could not have been less interested. Not again, then, with so many excellent restaurants around Marrakech.

We spent several days at this restaurant when visiting Marrakech for one week. We underline the good service from friendly people, all like a hugh familiy. The food was fresh and not expensive. At 20.45 the band began to play. Latino jazz. Nice!!! I recomend the seafish sword, with wine and a sigar at the end. Enjoy!
