A "Must Try" in Rabat

Seafood specialty, of course. Very heavy Spanish/Italian influence. Well worth the trip. A surprisingly impressive selection of wines to complement your meal. Easily could be a higher rating...presentation was excellent..however, the food gave me the impression that the chef was "playing it... read more

+ Excellent Spanish food + Professional service + Very nice view on the Bouregreg river and Hassan Tower - Booking is mandatory (we happened to visit the restaurant with no prior booking, but the manager was very nice and asked the staff to prepare a table for us) Tips: book a table with a view on the river

The best and finest seafood restaurant in Rabat. You can't have enough of their dishes. The restaurant is on the river Bouregreg across form Rabat (in Salé) and the view from the restaurant is breathtalking. Book a table on the terrace overlooking the riverside.

Seafood specialty, of course. Very heavy Spanish/Italian influence. Well worth the trip. A surprisingly impressive selection of wines to complement your meal. Easily could be a higher rating...presentation was excellent..however, the food gave me the impression that the chef was "playing it safe" and not exploring the full potential of the meal.

Just hours after arriving in Rabat, my host asked if I would like to have lunch at a "seafood restaurant." Certainly, and off we went. Al Marsa is tucked away in a lovely marina area. Nothing special from the outside. Clearly, this venue is not self-absorbed and overly focused on the physical structure. Certainly nice, clean but not some monument... More

Visited the Spanish restaurant in the summer for a delicious fish meal and have just visited the twin restaurant for a sumptuous Italian. The grilled steak was meltingly soft and presented beautifully. Service was commendable and delivered with a smile. Its a great location for either the day or evening as you have a view over the busy estuary and... More

This was my 3rd visit to Al Marsa. My two earlier visits left very good taste so naturally I was very happy that my host offered it as our place for dinner. We were a party of six and we decided to share our first courses by ordering Tapas, and after that each will have his own main course. The... More

The Al Marsa is shown as an Italian style, situated in The Marina du Bouregreg Sale ( Port) . Its almost opposite The Golden Tulip Hotel, but across the river. My Colleague and I both chose an excellent fish starter and main course, which was excellent. Visiting in November meant the restraint was quiet but I would certainly recommend a... More

I have now requested al Marsa for several large (10-15 person) business dinners and the food is always extremely fresh and well prepared. Relative to many restaurants in Rabat, service is prompt and attentive. Finally, the setting on the water looking over into Rabat-proper is unique. I would recommend for couples or business dinners. On cool nights in Rabat the... More

Just spent a lovely evening at Al Marsa which has a great view of the Hassan Tower and fashionable port. The fish was beautifully presented and perfectly cooked, simple and tasty. This was our first night out in Rabat and a high standard has been set.
