Very bad service, food OK, but not more.

We were 4 people, one Spanish speaking. Service was slow, One couple did not receive the first dish, I received an over done steak. And more. In short, bad experience.

Decent food, good service was but overpriced. Those in our group who ordered fish or pasta were more satisfied than those who ordered beef (beef was a bit tough) Regardless, we enjoyed our experience at casablanca.

We walked by several times and Casablanca was always full. Finally we decided to try it and we were very happy. Large portions, happy servers who really pay attention to their tables. The food is great. Loved the chicken plates but the sandwiches were great too. Definatley we will return

We enjoyed the food very much. The shrimp and fish dishes we tried were both very good. Prices are decent value for Panajachel. Service was friendly. We would recommend this to others and we will return one day.

Stop! Find some other place. Poor service. Pasta under cooked. Sauces below any reasonable standard. Pay extra for bread. With a name like Casablanca, they should stick to Moroccan foods like humus and pita bread. Find some other place.

I've lived in Panajachel for many years and we have many restaurants to choose from. The Casablanca is the restaurant I go to when my family come to visit, or, when I want to go to somewhere special. The plates I usually order are the Avocado soup which is absolutely yummy and I always enjoy their plate of whole grilled... More

We're usually a little suspect when the tour guide only recommends one restaurant, but this place was terrific. Started with garlic shrimp sauteed in a garlic butter sauce. Perfectly done, succulent, hot, and generously portioned. The rabbit a la bressane, with cream sauce wine and bacon, was a real surprise. My boyfriend cooks rabbit and frequently orders it, generally, not... More
