I had lunch here with a group of 32 travellers with Insight Vacations. The beachfront setting is unparalleled. It felt like the Riviera...but with more hijabs and less pretension! The food was decent...not spectacular, but quite OK. I had a spicy shrimp dish (shrimp pil pil, which is kinda like... read more

The assiette de fruit de mer consisted of shelled prawns which were off, rancid and inedible. There was a shredded fish fillet complete with bones which were concealed under the fish itself. The squid was inedible with a texture of elastic bands. There was a large mound of white rice, some bruised and floppy lettuce and tomato slices. All of... More

Fish of medium quality and not well cooked. The menus were very basic fried fish. the service is very slow and they don't listen to your request at all or sometimes they reply many times "yes" to you just to don't listen from you again but without doing what they promise to do. The view is good, the food medium,... More

Impossibly fresh and delicious. A must. Try the oysters, the mussels and the langoustine - superb! Next time in Morocco I will stay here for a few days just to eat here!

A good location right on the beach and was one of the few places open during the day in ramadan when we went. The service was a bit hit and miss, sometimes prompt and friendly, sometimes surly (but I tried to be understanding as being a waiter during ramadan when you are not allowed to eat must really be hard)....

We just ordered the Paella, but they must have had lots of seafood to use up because they kept bringing out stuff for us, complimentary...two types of cockles, mussels, harira,etc. By the time our paella arrived we were already full!

8 o'clock on a Monday evening in early July but we were the only diners in this large,spartan restaurant (two tables arrived later) which affected the ambience somewhat.We sat on the covered terrace on the beachside which was pleasant enough.We ordered the 140 dirham (less than £12) menu -salad/fried fish fillets/grilled fish/dessert.Salad was decent, the fillets plentiful and not greasy...

We ate dinner here last night on hearing that this was the place to eat sea food in ouailidia, how wrong our recommendations were. From the outside the place looks nice & appealing, however, once we were seated the restaurant is dirty & shabby & in desperate need of modernisation. We ordered two "fruits de mer" which worryingly took no... More
