/ Hotels in Marrakech
Does anyone know of any circa 4 star Riads or restaurants out there that would serve English type food? I know that sounds a bit silly but Sister in Law is equally silly about her diet 80( She's happiest with fish and chips, egg and chips or, if she's really adventurous she'll have a (non-meat) pizza.
Thanks for any help.
There's a KFC at the train station and a very nice italian pizzeria in the new-town on the main road from the old-town (Guelitz?)!

Meanwhile, this might sound daft but is your sister-in-law dead set on coming along? I imagine that she really might struggle in Morocco. I'm feeling rather envious because I really want to go there on a stuffing-my-face trip ( :-) ).

We've just got back from Marrakech two days ago. I can utterly recommend Riad Layla Rouge - it's a hostel that is in the medina just outside of the souks. I don't know what their evening mealas are like as we ate at Toubkal on the square most of the time - cheap, can do western and is clean. It will be almost impossible to eat only western, unless you want to remain cooped up in an expensive hotel. Riad Layla Rouge is findable on tripavisor, internet generally an hostelbookers did us well in booking it.

Just don't reply.. what are forums for if not to ask questions..
The amount of tripe posted on here about inane rubbish and people gripe when you post about the actual hills... sad little people who I reckon are just envious..
Never been to the Atlas mountains, may try and head over one day soon..
We had two nights here: http://www.riad-maipa.com/index.html at the end of a trip to Taghia. It's French owned. We ate there one night and ate out the other night. A fabulous calm oasis about 2 minutes from the Place Jemaa el Fna in the centre of the city. Not sure about the egg and chips...
Any of the pop up restaurants in the main square will do salads and fairly plain barbecued meat. I'm veggie and managed perfectly well, although tbh I can't remember what I was eating. Surely part of the experience in going somewhere different is the food as well as the mountains and scenery. Sure, if you don't want spices or traditional food, you don't have to have tagines etc. However to expect the same food as you'd get in the uk is unreasonable and I can't see how a non spicy barbecue and salad can be offensive to anyone.

That's not the way sister in law sees it :0( She almost says the trouble with going abroad is that you meet loads of furriners!
Leave her behind Pyrex. You know it makes sense.
I am afraid your sister in law may starve a little though. The food there is amazing, but not always british standard. The risk of food poisoning is minimal, I have a delicate stomach and it didnt twitch once while I was there, even on the market stalls.
She might like the flat bread though, think of it as a bland pizza
You've soldiered worse!

I lost 3 Kg in as many days after returning from Marakesh.
