Description: "This restaurant has been an iconic location of for over 40 years but has recently been totally renovated and is now sporting a fresh new look. Located in Casablanca resolutely stylish and refined setting, which offers magnificent views of the Atlantic. Chef Fabien Caboy reigns in the kitchen offering you a choice of subtle and delicate Mediterranean dishes. A lounge bar and a very exclusive club are two more reasons to revisit this exceptional place." Best Restaurant Maroc

“océan view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Very nice view of the ocean this haven of peace while meditating allows you to be diving into a pretty nice atmosphere BCBG
Warm welcome especially if it is Alexander who is present and who watches to satisfy the smaller details that are significant to me
Simple food and good
Reasonable prices (except for salads :) it's a little abuse in my view, enlarge a little more because it is riquiqui)
Good short nice place worth visiting

“Beautiful Setting.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Only went here for a drink but it is a wonderful setting. Very modern right on the water with sea below you. Full bar, excellent Kiwi Martini's. Service is a little slow but ok. This is a young crowd, loud music, kind of bar. We did look at the dinner menu but since we didn't read french we had a hard time with it. Decided against eating there. The drinks were 100 MAD each so definitely not a cheap place. Forgot to check out the bathrooms which other reviewers said were amazing.

“Cabestan is the best restaurant in Casablanca”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

The Cabestan is perhaps the reference for fine dining in Casablanca. With an excellent sea food menu, it is the perfect place.
This is however a classy restaurant and the prices are high/very high for moroccans, however for tourists who expect to pay, it is good value for money. A meal for two with drinks came to around 800dh, euro80, thats £35 a head.
Personally I prefer this place for lunch, with two lovely terraces and lounges.
Try the moroccan wine, White with fish. I would also recommend the Oysters followed by Lobster tagiatelle.

“Chic Casablanca Fooding & Peoplewatching”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Very good food for most of the menu, great view of the beach, comfortable "loungey" terrace and pretty good wine menu. Lots of jetsetters and wealthy foreign businessmen as well as the chic Casblancans - all worthy of peoplewatching.

“Beautiful Views, Very good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Very good food at a fraction of the price you would pay for it in London or Paris. Especially the oysters!
