The Foundouk in Marrakech is amongst the best rooftops in the world

Marrakech-based Le Foundouk restaurant has been ranked among the 14 world’s best sky-high and rooftop restaurants by the American network channel CNN.

It is now clear why world celebrities love to sprawl in the environment and goodies of the Moroccan marvellous city.

CNN describes Le Foundouk as a charming terrace above Marrakech’s frenetic medina and hails the service and food at the restaurant situated in the old town.

“Le Foundouk serves its take on Moroccan classics (beef fillet tagine, seafood pastilla) on a candle-lit rooftop overlooking the old town,” CNN commented.

Le Foundouk also catches eyes for its accessibility, CNN notes adding that the restaurant makes available staff to lead customers to the roof-top overlooking the city once they drop at the entrance of the glamorous restaurant.

“It can be hard to find, but lantern-bearing staff are on hand at the nearby taxi drop-off to guide diners to the restaurant,” CNN added.

Other top best-sky and roof-top restaurants include Duck and Waffle in London, The Ides at The Wythe in New York City, Sky on 57 in Singapore, Aroma, located in Rome, and Dos Cielos in Barcelona.

Ling Ling has arrived


Following its debut in Mykonos, Greece, last summer, contemporary Cantonese restaurant, Ling Ling, is now making its way to the red city. Due to open at Mandarin Oriental, Marrakech this Autumn, Ling Ling will be a destination for in-the-know locals and global travellers looking for a touch of refined decadence and culinary excellence.

Drawing inspiration from the Izakaya concept made popular in the East, where food accompanies the drinks and not the other way around, Ling Ling takes the Hakkasan DNA and bends it to create a restaurant and bar experience that reflects its environment but has signature elements from Hakkasan.

With reinvented presentations of smaller plates, Ling Ling encourages guests to discover Hakkasan’s cuisine differently, with the opportunity to share and try a variety of the Cantonese-style dishes. Cocktails are at the heart of the experience, offering intriguing and evolving menus curated by the award-winning team in London. The sound design is mastered and perfected by Hakkasan resident DJ in London, Pathaan, bringing eclectic, masterfully crafted playlists to Ling Lings across the world.
