Mandarin Oriental, Marrakech, to welcome Le Petit Chef

Mandarin Oriental, Marrakech, will launch a deliciously entertaining pop-up restaurant with Le Petit Chef, a one-of-a-kind interactive technology and gourmet cuisine experience.

The space will be available from January 5th until April 5th this year.

Guests can take full advantage of this culinary journey by booking the Petit Chef package which includes luxurious accommodation, airport transfers and breakfast.

The two-hour Le Petit Chef dining show will use cutting edge 3D visual technology to take diners on an animated culinary journey across countries visited by Marco Polo.

During this enchanting experience, “the world’s smallest chef”, the animated character Le Petit Chef, will guide diners through the story on table-top screens that double as place mats, moving from one culinary delight to the next, making this a highly entertaining evening to spend with friends and family.


The concept and character of Le Petit Chef was created by Belgian artists’ collective Skullmapping, which was founded by award-winning filmmaker Filip Sterckx and Antoon Verbeeck, in 2010.

Visual Mapping, usually seen as huge video mapping projections at major events, has been made miniature for this more intimate environment.

Ingenious props, soundtracks and scents are added to enhance the experience.

Guests will breathe-in the icy air of the Himalayas one moment and feel hot and heady in an Arabic souk the next.
