    Ostrea: Excellent Sea Food and Oysters

    by Doctor38 Updated Jul 11, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the best sea food restaurant within Casablanca. It located inside the fishermen port. The location is very unusual but very very appropriate. The setting is very smart and romantic. If you are a sea food lover the place is for you. Weather you where after Calamari, or fish. Japanese oyster is this restaurants speciality as owner farm and grows his own oysters at his facility in Oualidiah, where they operate a resturant and a hotel (see my Ouladia tips
    http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/b5051/203518/3/#1880998 ; http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/b5051/203518/a/ ) People come to this place for it. I have been to this restaurant few times and I after mixed sea food dish and Paella. Don’t call it a night before having desert which a must.

    This place is very close to Casa Port Train station and about one km away. I recommend you come by your car or a taxi because the road between the train station and port is dark at night. As you exit the train station turn right immediately (walk opposite direction of the traffic light) and then turn left. Keep walking until you see the harbours gate, pass through it. You’ll see 2 restaurants, go to the one to your right. The other restaurant also supposed to be a good sea food restaurant which is cheaper and busier but I never attempted to try it.

    Rick's Cafe: For a piece of Cinema

    by anujalia Written Feb 12, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just for a Piece of the epic movie, this place is worth visiting. The ambiance is great, the food is good and they have a good selection of wine. And on the first floor, they have the movie running on a big screen. 'Drinks or Dinner' the guard outside asks you. The reply makes you fit for a seating on the first floor or a stool at the bar mostly. But just to soak in it, visit it.

    Favorite Dish: The lobster was pretty good.

    Marche Central: Unlikely restaurant

    by Doctor38 Updated Jan 16, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the central market and it is a very unusual place for a restaurant. You basically chose and pay the fish or meat from the market. There are 2 places where they can grill or fry your food. The restaurant will provide you with the salads and the bread. You can ask the botcher to prepare the meet as Kebabs or ticka and he'll add the spices for you. Your sea food choices range from shrimps to Calamari, to whatever is available on display as the catch of the day. If you don't know what kind of fish will be good just ask the sales person. Don't expect any thing grand or fancy but it is a good place to see the locals

    Needless to say that the market has all the fruits and vegetables you want. There is also a place where you can get freshly squeezed orange or lemon juices

    Al-Monya Restaurant: Excellent Moroccan Food

    by Doctor38 Updated Jan 16, 2008

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is probably where you can eat the best Moroccan food. The Harera is a must. You can order any thing from Bastella to Coscus. This restaurant is not cheap but it is worth the money you are paying. You can sit in the Garden in the shadow of a very big tree or sit inside the very Authentic beautifully decorated house. The service is very professional and friendly.

    The restaurant is located on Moulay Abdullah Street which runs Parallel to his brother Hassan II :-). It is located next to the offices of the prime minister and 100 meter before you get to the French consulate. If you are coming from The Hyatt and Bab Marrakesh you pass by McDonalds. Keep on walking until you get out of the walking district. You'll see the restaurant on you left hand. I am not sure that there is a prominent sign or not. The restuarant is open from 11-3 and 7 to mid night

    taverne du dauphin: the most perfect meal

    by call_me_rhia Written Jan 12, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It has not only the best meal we had in Morocco, but the best meal we've had in years. The Taverne du Dauphin is now one of our three favourite restaurants in the world. This restaurant has been around a very long time and it has a great reputation, which means that it is often full (so phone ahead and reserve a table). it is French-run, but luckily it has not been influenced by the "cover-it-in-sauce" posh French cuisine.

    Favorite Dish: We had so many different dishes, and all were delicious, that it's hard to pick one. Some things we ordered - some otherthings were ordered for us by some friendly Moroccans at the nearby table - yes, the same ones who tried to drink us under the table by offering us glasses of wine galore (tahnk you, guys...).

    Anyway - the seafood was all excellent, in particular the "couteau de mer" - among the second courses it's worth citing a dreamy octopus cooked in galician style and some simple grilled sardines... but grilled to perfection. We kept saying that we had been fed like king and queen

    entree... sardines octopus galician style

    le port de peche: fresh fish fantasia

    by call_me_rhia Written Jan 12, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A very popular fish restaurant inside the harbour - serving excellent fresh fish - not much seafood, though, you better go somewhere else for this (for example to Ostréa, just opposite). Always full of people, so it's best to phone and make a reservation, or else try to arrive early, especially at weekends.

    Favorite Dish: We had oysters as a starter (for about 50 cents of euro each) and then a huge "black" paella prepared right on the spot. Excellent, and worth waiting the forty-five minutes the waiter had announced.

    Taverne du dauphine: Fish restaurant

    by xaver Updated Jan 2, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Finding this restaurant was not simple, we did not take a taxi and we had to walk around the harbour area a lot before finally getting there.
    The effort though was definitly worth, it has been one of the best places where we ate in Morocco and the fish was excellent.

    Favorite Dish: It's mainly a restaurant fish and their grilled shrimps are delicious.

    A Ma Bretagne: The Best Restaurant in Africa (so they claim ...)

    by Conspirator Written Apr 8, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite Dish: ... and they well may be right.

    A Ma Bretagne is essentially a high class French restaurant transplanted to the coast of Africa. My meal there was truly sensational. It will cost you about 1000 MAD for the fixe prix 7 courses plus wine and it is worth every cent. The food is both seafood and meat, with a sensational fois gras.

    Getting there is a little tricky. It is at the very far end of Boulevarde de la Corniche (the esplanade along the beach west of the city). Get a taxi to drop you in front of Sidi Abderrachman, which is a little outcropping into the sea with some white buildings on it. The walk aong the Boulevarde another 100m or so and there it is.

    It doesn't open until 8pm, so another option is to watch the sunset over the Atlantic from somewhere along the main strip and then walk west for a few miles.

    I turned up without a reservation on a Friday night and had no problem getting a seat.

    At Rue Chaoui: The cheapest restaurants

    by matcrazy1 Updated Sep 22, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The cheapest, basic restaurants which served good local food (limited choice) I found in the two areas:
    1. around entrance to Ancienne Medina in Place des Nations Unies,
    2. in Avenue lala Yacout (popular among natives fast food bars)
    I have found another place close to my hotel: a few small and very simple "restaurants" in Rue Chaoui with tables on a street.
    I tasted delicious Moroccan couscous there: made in traditional style in special pots for couscous - it cost 2-3 US$ per person.

    Favorite Dish: Royal (with meat) or Fish couscous.

    Movable street stalls: Fruits from street moving vendors

    by matcrazy1 Updated Sep 22, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can buy fresh and cheap fruits (grapes and bananas in late September) from street vendors selling them from such vehicle as on the picture, oh they often move.
    I observed them from my hotel window, so it was not problem for me to catch them haha.

    Another notice: often children works as street vendors in Moroco. Prices are usually - but not always - fixed and marked.

    Bananas seems to be save to eat, grapes? hmm... better to wash them before eating, you can ask for water to wash them in any street bar/store, I'm almost sure they would not refuse you and would not expect any money for it.

    Favorite Dish: Grapes (green ones).

    At Rue Chaoui: Don't miss local bread

    by matcrazy1 Updated Sep 22, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Taste delicious and always fresh small or medium size round bread. It's often hot - how do they do it?
    I found a few bakeries or rather small stores which sold homemade bread and other food in Rue Chaoui, close to my hotel (Hotel Touring).

    Favorite Dish: Small home-made bread.

    Restaurant Port de Peche: Fresh out of the ocean

    by bodecia Updated Dec 21, 2005

    We asked the driver of a petit taxi to bring us to a good fish restaurant, and he brought us to this great place in the fishing port. This restaurant has a French colonial feel to it, but most of the people you see here are locals, having a bussiness lunch, or families enjoying a meal together. The service is fast and friendly and the food is delicious.

    Favorite Dish: All the dishes we had were fresh, delicious and well presented, but the fried chipirones and poisson et crevettes en mille feuille were a culinary experience!

    Al Mouini: Eating Morrocan style

    by besal Written Dec 8, 2005

    Found eating Morroccan style too cramped. We sat around small tables, jam packed, with waiters jumping over you to clear the table and place other dishes. Food came and came, no relentment. When we thought we had the main course, the main course arrived..and we all were just aghast. And after the main course, it was time for another main course.

    Eating in local style took over 2.5 hours.

    El Andalous: Arabic

    by TomorrowsAngel Written Sep 26, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We decided to try El Andalous because it offered live traditional Moroccan music and dancing, as well as dinner.
    The restaurant is dimly lit with Moroccan crafts on the walls and tables. There are lower set tables with padded cushions for large groups and smaller Western-style tables for couples dining.
    The music was tranquil and got lively and louder as the night wore on.

    Favorite Dish: We started with a Lebanese mezze, which came with fattoush, hummus, tabbouleh, moussaka, babaganoush, Lebanese foul and mutable, it was accompanied with the traditional fresh and pickled vegetables and soft warm Arabic bread.
    Our mains were: vegetable and couscous tagine, and a lamb with prunes tagine.
    For dessert we sampled mouhallabia, umm ali and fresh fruit salad.
    All the food was delicious and I’d definitely eat there again!!
