Bagatelle French Restaurant Marrakech
If you’re in Marrakech and looking for some wholesome French home cooking, then Bagatelle probably fits the bill. Bagatelle is a “brasserie” – defined on wikipedia as a type of French restaurant with a relaxed setting, which serves single dishes and other meals. The word brasserie is also French for “brewery” and, by extension, “the brewing business”. Bagatelle has a well stocked bar including beer on tap.
Bagatelle is a veritable Marrakech institution. Opened in 1949 by Helene Collumb, it was hugely successful for over half a century, known for its passion and love of classic, traditional French dishes. After a closure of 3 years, it was reopened in new premises a few metres from the original site in 2010 by her grandson and his business partner.
Bagatelle boasts a magnificent dome that sits above the main restaurant area, a fireplace for cosy winter evenings and a spacious terrace covered by a beautiful vine.
The new restaurant has stayed true to the original Bagatelle – on the walls a black and white photo gallery is displayed, tracing the history of Gueliz over the last sixty years. On the food side, tradition has been preserved – Bagatelle still serves its customers the great classics of a Parisian brasserie: mimosa eggs, snails, veal tongue, steak with green pepper sauce, duck breast with apple and many other festive dishes.
