I'm a little disconcerted that our dining experience at La Menora is so widely different from the other reviewers. We were the only diners during our entire meal which is in itself a telling sign that doesn't bode well on the culinary front, but we figured that it was mid-week and low tourist season. But our concerns were justified: my... More

At last, after a string of mediocre meals, we found a good restaurant in this city. It took a bit of research on Trip Advisor, but if you notice this is the restaurant with the best reviews left by people who regularly review places. A lot of other restaurants have stellar reviews by users who only seem to ever have... More

Fine food, very nice atmosphere. But as the host of a small group of people, I found it extremely odd that the owner refused to make eye contact with me or speak to me at any point throughout the meal. He told others at the table of the daily specials, greeted them and checked in with them, but blatantly ignored... More

The food is fine. The interior is beautiful. Very good starters. I recommend the fried fish starters.

I would say this is the best restaurant we have been to in Rabat so far (we are here for a couple of months). I mean restaurant in terms of a more formal affair and where you can purchase wine rather than cafes and snack places where you can of course get lots of tasty food as well. The ambience,... More

This is one of the best restaurants we have ever been at. The owner is there every night and welcomes the patrons. He also visits you table several times during the meal to make sure everything is great. The restaurant is in a completely restored Riad or house. Very lovely. Food was superb. Service was great. Not a lot of... More

I was in Rabat for almost a month on business and ate at La Menora several times. I found the food to be very good and the staff to be excellent. The owner was there each night and made us feel very welcome. Good atmosphere, great food, and a hearty welcome - that's what kept us going back. Well worth... More

I consider La Menora the restaurant that has the best Moroccan food with a very reasonable price. Above that is the warm welcome you receive from the manager and the nit service from the waiter. I recommend it highly for anyone who was not there. Give it a try .. You'll love it!

We visited Morocco with a group of friends in juli to make a big trip. Our host recommanded us to eat in 'la Menora'. It's a beautiful space located in the city center. We had a really nice experience. It is true that we had to wait a little bit, but is was worth waiting as it was one of... More
