Reviewed By Iman B

After falling in love with Hotel Ksar Merzouga and the people we couldn't wait to go again. If you're in need of a relaxing fun filled exciting holiday this is is the place to be. Its tranquility and serenity are magical. The service and cleanliness in this place are wonderful. In 2013 we (parents, sister, uncle and his family) stayed for 3 nights and 2015 for 4 nights with even more friends and family that were extremely sad to leave. Most recommended place in the Sahara!

Not only is the Fatima a nice place to enjoy a meal, but it is basically an "everything store" for the Merzouga area. They've got meals, they've got rooms, they've got bikes for rent (cheap!), they sell souvenirs, they'll put you on a camel... whatever you need!
But, yes, the meals are nice. They've even got a vegetarian option.

Dar Restaurant Bab Rimal

Perfectly located at the entrance to the desert town of Merzouga, Dar Restaurant Bab Rimal truly is the gateway to the Sahara. Owners Abdou and Fatima cook up genuine Moroccan cuisine, including tremendous tagines, cous-cous, michwi, and Pizza Sahara.

The workers at this restaurant were incredibly friendly and made our meal a relaxing and enjoyable experience. The food was fresh and hot and the salad alone was worth the visit, especially at the price.

Nasser Palace Restaurant

Reviewed By Rodrigo G - Arlington, Virginia

This is not for the faint-hearted chap, the frail adventurer, or the flimsy swashbuckler. The Nasser Palace will indelibly and ineradicably impregnate on-and-in you the spirit of the Foreign Legion, the vastness of the never-ending sands of the Sahara desert with its whispering howling winds, and the fogey mettle of the Touareg people. Moreover, the dark and fat desert scarabs will bloodcurdlingly remind you of the 1999 film: "The Mummy". (I guess I am supposed to say here: Nhyyaaaahahahaaa!?).
Well, the Nasser Palace's restaurant is something much, much different. After a long day cruising the sands of Erg Chebbi on an even-toed ungulate dromedary's back (the ones with one hump are not "Camels", so you know...), you are certainly thirsty, hungry, and of course, silted; so the only thing you want is a cold shower and an heartwarming dinner. The Nasser Palace stands as a bastion seemingly constructed by the "Legionnaires du Beau Geste" (1924 novel) with a restaurant that emulates the history, ambiance, settings, decorations, and spirit of the place, crowned by delectable "gourmandises" for the selective, nomad palate.
I gobbled delicious chicken and lamb kebobs, I devoured delectable and aromatic olives, I guzzled Moroccan bread and briouats slathered in exotic sauces that made me sigh, and I engorged sardines and real anchovies with leems (pickled lemons). The service was inviting and affable, and the music performed in the background by the Rwais (Cheuh Berber musicians) it was superb! The desert desserts are a must: stuffed dates, chocolate marzipan, apricots, figs, and petite fekkas with nigella seeds (those last ones are cookies, silly you!). Dromedary milk is always an option, but I passed on it... The Nasser Palace itself it is something you ought to do before you breathe your last. The prices, the variety, the quality, and the service are notable and stately for a remarkably remote post like this one. I shall return!

Cafe Restaurant Merzouga

Reviewed By Zara K

We were brought here for lunch by our tour guide while driving through Merzouga. We ordered the Moroccan veggie soup and Berber pizza (essentially bread stuffed with meat). The soup was the best Moroccan veggie soup we had during our stay of 10 days! We absolutely loved it - I could have eaten it for days. The Berber pizza was flavourful but I personally would have preferred a regular pizza.

A restful dining experience with simplicity and charm with your toes in the sand. The food is prepared while you enjoy the view with Moroccan tea. Very kind and catering to every need. Yousef makes you feel ver welcome.
It's an experience in the desert without the camel.
