Marrakech And The Michelin Stars.
Last night we dined out with some friends at La Pavillon Du Golfs new restaurant Dar Ennassim, and ate the most delectable food created by chef Fabrice Vulin.
Set amongst the Palm groves of the famous Palmeraie area to the north of Marrakech (which has the most expensive real estate here in Marrakech, one hector can be sold for as much as 5 million dhs depending on access). La Pavillon Du Golf is a newly constructed super deluxe boutique hotel with luxury suites situated around a golf course and an extension to the long established resort The Palmeraie Golf Palace.
The restaurant is constructed in colonial style and with contemporary interiors. The exterior has views over the lake and beyond lies the golf course. The Sunday lunches served on the terraces next to the pool come highly recommended.
I am certainly not a food critic, but having been lucky enough to have experienced the of such restaurants as Le Gavroche, Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons and The Waterside Inn back in England, it seemed comparable to some of these legendary restaurants. Fabrice Vulin is a member of the Academy of Cuisine France and has been awarded 2 michelin stars for his talents in the Restaurant du Parc Eaux Vives in Geneva. The guide Best Restaurant Maroc can be quoted as saying that this is the best restaurant in the Kingdom of Morocco. We are very lucky to have such an esteemed chef here in Marrakech
The menu was varied. I sampled the lobster as I love seafood dishes, along with this came combinations of fresh succulent baby vegetables. Everything was delicate but rich in flavour, cooked to perfection. (Even the bread is heated to a perfect temperature.) As each plate was served we all spent time admiring the artistry of the food’s presentation. The service was excellent, as was the selection of wines to accompany each dish. Not terribly expensive compared to European prices and worth all the stars in the sky last night. This restaurant is perfect for all those very special occasions .
