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

I'm not a great movie buff, but who hasn't seen Casablanca. I was disappointed to learn that Rick's Cafe was a Hollywood set and not even set in Morocco, but it didn't stop me. They are open for lunch and for dinner and drinks. The lunch menu has about 10 starters, 7-8 "specials," 7-8 meat dishes... read more

The food here was spectacular. Each dish we've tasted is worthy of remarking. We loved it so much that we couldn't resist not going there for dinner on the following day. Ambience is more than pleasant and the service was genuine. One of the few restaurants/cafes in Casablanca with English-speaking staff.

The food was good overall. Nice ambience, nice bathroom. Just there is 1 host or manager who was not smiling nor friendly. I hope that person will be more friendlier next time.

Had such a positive experience. My expectations were low. They have managed to create something genuine and with a high ambience in such a tourist place. Well done!! Great food and good service!

Food was good, ambiance nearly perfect and the waitresses were all very friendly. The only downside and what nearly ruined it was one of the staff that was wearing a black suit. Not sure if he was the manager or supervisor but the waitresses had to double check with him when we asked for a table of 5 instead of... More

We were there twice during our stay, once for dinner and once for drinks (beware that during ramadan they dont serve alcohol to muslims). The food was awesome as well as were the drinks.

Service was excellent and the food was good. Obviously it's cool hanging at the bar and having a whisky etc. Visited it in the middle of the day, would like to see it of a night time and hang out a have a few drinks. Not the actual one from the film obviously, but as close as you'll ever get... More
