A place straight out of 1001 Arabian Nights. Getting there is a story in its own rights: the taxi drops you off literally in the middle of nowhere, in one of the tiny nameless medina streets, alive with the evening buzz. You don't have the slightest idea of where you are. And then a lantern-holding man in a caftan the colour of a dusty stone wall materialises from thin air and says: "Welcome to the heart of medina!" You follow, picking your way through the narrow streets and catch yourself wondering how on earth you are ever going to find your way back (no need to worry, actually: a guide is guaranteed after the meal as well). Foundouk is located on a spot where merchants once used to pass the night before travelling on to the desert, the mountains or to the North. From outside the entrance is as hard to notice as anything else in this city. A magnificent décor dominated by purples, a roof terrace lit up with lanterns - a background music (Robbie Williams et al.). A French Moroccan style cuisine. This is a restaurant that best embodies the spirit of contemporary Marrakech.
