This was a very pleasant surprise....docked in front of the Rabat Casbah, this ship was built in India and shipped to Rabat. There is a lounge bar on the deck, a cigar bar downstairs and a very decent european restaurant in the back. The interior is all wood and very homely. Staff are friendly, prices are European.

It is too bad that such a beautiful place is not up to what it looks like. The place is exceptional for both the view and the boat... But it stops there. Service performed by young servers (even smiling) is awkward and very slow. And although orders are taken electronically, this does not prevent two people at our table to... More

The boat itself is lovely, but that's about it! The food is not prepared on the boat and brought in and the pricing is way over the top. We paid 10 euro for 1 can of sprite!!!! The drinks menu stated one price and the bill was double that. We were never told by any staff that it's double fee... More

Le Dhow has a fantastic gimmick - it's on a boat in the Rabat Harbor and is beautiful for sunset cocktails on the deck. There's a bar below (haven't been) that has themed parties. This is primarily about the restaurant. Of three visits one was great, one was so-so and one was pretty lackluster. If the first time had not... More

I thought we were in for a great evening...what a joke my two friends fillet steaks that were not fillets (stewing steak), were over cooked and when we complained they argued that was what we ordered, my meal was wrong so when it did finally arrive it was late. Food was over priced and very poor! DO NOT WASTE YOUR... More

for sure one of the most interesting place in Rabat , may it be for an aperitif, a meal and after dinner party. Decoration is just superb, food and service excellent and the atmosphere just calls for a good time.. Worth the trip on board

expensive by moroccan standards - (beer about £5) horrible shows ('lady nights etc). Nice to look at but we walked off again when we saw the prices of food and drink!

I walked by this ship on my way to the kasbah along the water. I was hungry but thought a restaurant on a boat might be cheesy. I was pleasantly surprised. The service was amazing and so were the views. The music was pretty great too and the decor was more modern than the outside! I had the foie gras... More

Restaurant located on a boat by the marina of Rabat, next to the medina, and overlooking la kasbah des Oudayas. Not a place to come for the quality of the food, but for the decor and the setting. Traditionnal wooden furniture with beautiful pillows and decoration make the tables outside very inviting for al-fresco dining or afternoon drinks or tea.... More
