After the success NOMAD, LE JARDIN and the famous Café des épices knew, Kamal Laftimi opens LE KILIM in the center of the city, close to everything. Inspired from the glowing red of Marrakech and the artistic vintage Moroccan decorations, the classical dishes and international flavors, we managed to create a restaurant, not only modern but true to its Marrakchi roots.
LE KILIM is a loft like space decorated with vintage and modern artisanal pieces. Hanging in one of our walls, we have chosen to honor one of the most iconic kings of Morroco, Mohamed the 5thwho reigned in the 20s until the 60s, getting out of the classical portrait, the painting is a minimalistic perspective with the red Tarbouch, an item representing the Moroccan culture at best. A restaurant that was decorated by Anne Emmanuelle Favier, with cooper traditional bucket lamps hanging on the ceilings that brings originality and an artisanal touch to the space, adding to it oversized braided straws lamps with warm lights at night. The Zellige in the ground, in variations of red, is a signature of the Marrakech Gueliz restaurant . As the art of the Zellige was born in Morocco in the 10th century inspired from the roman culture, we have chosen a modern aspect to it by keeping the Beldi-chic decoration with the red of the city. KILIM also means a particular type of rugs, an originally Turkish art that was also used and made in Morocco and North Africa. We chose to cover all our chairs and cushions with Kilim rugsin order to keep the unified red and traditional look.
The day starts with an exquisite breakfast where we serve a mix of homemade Moroccan dishes such as Shakshouka, with local and simple products that you can eat in every Moroccan house and can enjoy with a hot mint tea and homemade bread. You can also enjoy your morning coffee with stuffed crepes with ricotta, house granola or yoghurt pancakes to start your day. With the help of our best chefs and the international chef Tomas Roger, we have gathered meals that will take you away with each bite. Original sandwicheswith falafels, crispy chicken, sometimes served as toasts garnished with eggplant caviar and herbs or avocado particularly made for our vegetarian guests. Staying true to the roots, we suggest the Moroccan Marrakchi classics;Kefta and eggs, lamb shank or an exquisite grilled fish tagine, and many other surprises, but be careful to leave room for dessert. To end your meal, you can enjoy a soft cheesecake with fruits or a semolina cake with yoghurt and for the sweet tooth, a chocolate and orange tart.
