Description: Rick's Cafe Casablanca is a restaurant, bar and cafe located in the city of Casablanca, Morocco. Opened March 1, 2004, the place was designed to recreate the bar made famous by Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in the movie classic Casablanca. Set in an old courtyard-style mansion built against the walls of the Old Medina of Casablanca, the restaurant - piano bar is filled with architectural and decorative details reminiscent of the film: curved arches, a sculpted bar, balconies, balustrades as well as beaded and stencilled brass lighting and plants that cast luminous shadows on white walls. There is an authentic 1930's Pleyel piano and As Time Goes By is a common request to the in-house pianist

“Great fun dinner in Casablanca”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We were staying at a gorgeous hotel (see other review!) but decided we had to leave and explore for dinner so we went to Ricks and all 4 of us had a different moroccoan meal,they were delicious. terrific atmosphere,lovely piano music, beautiful setting, an oasis in the hustle and bustle of Ramadan prayers. Would recommend to friends to visit. So much to look at and enjoy, Kathy,the owner made a point of saying hello and when select thanking us. nice touch. Great wait service, good fun evening with friends.

“Very nice place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

This is a nice place to have dinner or drinks. The movie was not actually filmed here (it was filmed in a studio). However, it is a nice place to relax from the chaos that is Casablanca. The food is good, the service excellent, and the atmosphere is great. The place attracts mainly westerners but I didn't mind.

“A bit of a let down”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The realisation that the movie Casablance was entirely filmed on set in the US of A and that the restaurant is based on the movie was a bit of a cold shower. Food is good if a bitbpricey.

“Worth Visiting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

While somewhat underwhelmed while vacationing in Casablanca, I did enjoy my dinner at Rick's Cafe. The food was above-average and the wait staff was accommodating. The owner was there and was kind enough to stop by and chat for a few minutes. If you are in Casablanca, it is definitely worth finding Rick's Cafe (somewhat off the beaten path), especially on Sunday night with great music.

“Everything We Hoped For and a Little More”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We visiting Rick's Café in Casablanca just before returning to Canada after almost 2 weeks in Morocco. We are movie buffs and were looking forward to good food, good music and a good time. We were not disappointed on any front. The food was fantastic, we all enjoyed our meals. The service was stellar. The Sunday evening jazz music was a real treat. Everything was great. I would go back on a heartbeat.
