Restaurant Oumnia

Moroccan in Meknes

Thank goodness for this low-key restaurant, which is one of the only places in Meknès to eschew the standard Moroccan menu in favour of more unusual dishes, and will serve them alongside local beer or Meknès wine should you be hankering for it. The beef is particularly good, such as kamama (beef with tomatoes and honey) and kababe mardoure (beef kebab with egg).

You can also get méchoui (slow-cooked lamb) here. It is less a formal restaurant and more like a few rooms of a family home converted into dining salons, with an emphasis on warm service. Another bonus is that it's easy to find, off Rue Rouamzine.
