Rick's Cafe Casablanca is a restaurant, bar and cafe located in the city of Casablanca, Morocco. Opened March 1, 2004, the place was designed to recreate the bar made famous by Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in the movie classic Casablanca. Set in an old courtyard-style mansion built against the walls of the Old Medina of Casablanca, the restaurant - piano bar is filled with architectural and decorative details reminiscent of the film: curved arches, a sculpted bar, balconies, balustrades as well as beaded and stencilled brass lighting and plants that cast luminous shadows on white walls. There is an authentic 1930's Pleyel piano and As Time Goes By is a common request to the in-house pianist

Sure, the Rick's Cafe from the 1942 film Casablanca wasn't real, but thankfully, the owners of Rick's Cafe in the real Casablanca took the trouble to recreate it, right down to the table lamps. Ok, so, maybe it's a tourist trap. But, you're in Casablanca, and other than the Hassan II Mosque... read more

Had looked forward to this place as the highlight of our trip to Casablanca, even knowing that it is fictional in the film, but sadly overrated and overpriced!

If you must see this then go but this is only a tourist site. The food was good but this place is not somewhere you must go while in Casa if you are limited on time. This is NOT the site of the original movie but was created as a tourist attraction.

My friends came to Marrakech from the US for vacation and stayed with us. They wanted to visit the famous Ricks Cafe. I did to since I haven't been. The door men were very nice but the staff inside the restaurant were not what I would call customer service oriented. It's worth a visit just to say you were there,... More

You have to take it for what it is, a 100% tourist trap, but well executed. The film was of course filmed in Hollywood so this is a small scale replica of Ricks Cafe in the movie. Nice decor, attentive staff and ok food (not expensive). It is small and touristic but well worth a visit when inCasablanca for the... More

Ricks cafe is the place to go in Casablanca for a very good meal ( from a diverse Manu). The service was superb, the atmosphere fun, lively but not intrusive. The decor is enchanting. A gin and tonic at the bar before dinner is a must. For what has now become a tourist attraction, this Resturant has managed to creat... More

We were jet-lagged so we just sat outside the restaurant until it opened. So when we came the place had not yet filled up. Even then we could tell the atmosphere was fantastic. Beautiful place, greenery, courtyard etc. What's not to love? Even if it wasn't THE Rick's cafe from the movie, it's still worth coming. However one must know... More

Casablanca is a walking city, you will however be restrained a little/much by people and motor traffic but there is much to see. Don't miss Ricks Cafe and walk there if possible, not far from the mosque and fascinating local markets.
