The reason this Resto does not have 5 is due to the time waiting to be served. Slow and the waiting times between the plates being longer than expected decreased the overall "performance ".

I have to this place at least 5 times. It's the first place I go for dinner in Casblanca, and it is always the same; great service, great food, great ambience. I love this place. The Paella is superb and the appetizers are just unbelievable.

This is a large restaurant with great service. The food is good but our meal was spoilt a little by being seated with smokers: which we do not like at the best of times but especially while eating.

This was a hidden gem in the ugly city of Casablanca. I was here for a conference and wanted to get out of the hotel. We shared a meat platter to start and then I had the monkfish with prawns. It was truly incredible. Great location across the bay from the majestic mosque

It's very well located, clean and neat restaurant. Staff is very kind. The place is Maroc style decorated Spanish restaurant. Sea food is very delicious, esprcially tapas. I ate grilled sole fish, very tastefull. Chef showed up sometimes, if you don't like aonething, you can tell him directly. Overall, it was quite satisfactory sea food experience. Try it.
