“Very cheap, but hygiene on the edge”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

Hygiene was really on the edge, judged by the condition of the sanitary services (the sink wasn't cleaned for a couple of weeks), so if this is an indication of what happens in the kitchen...

“Quick, cheap and reliable restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

Finding a restaurant in the medina of Rabat is not so easy. There are the super-expensive ones (Dinarjat, etc.), and lot's of little street stalls, but finding a real sit-down place can be a bit tricky. Overall them tend to be on the medina margin (Ave Laalou, or Ave Mohammed V). At the southern end of Ave Mohammed V are a few real restaurants, and the Liberation does have a clean, inviting look. The menu (only in Arabic and French) is fairly expansive (soups, omelets, fish, couscous [apparently not always available] and some stews - in addition to Moroccan dishes also some more western items such as french fries and rice). Food came very quickly and was overall solid, and very inexpensive (mains between 20 and 35 dirham, mint tea only 4).
In sum, it's a no-frills but reliable place for some honest Moroccan fare.

“excellent value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

This is a gem right in the Medina. The price can not be beaten.....it is clean and the service is great...you will not find a better value in Rabat. I stayed in Rabat for a week and went a few times.....

“Perfect lunch spot with local character”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

Busy place, tight spaces between tables, elbow to elbow seating with an old style lunch caf feeling...the perfect place for a lunch break after the rue des Consuls shopping experience and before heading to the electronic medina.

“Cheap eats but not cheap on quality!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2008

This restaurant is on the main strip through Rabat's medina. Unlike a lot of cheap places this one doesnt look dodgy, it's clean and sooo cheap. We ate tagines and omelette there and enjoyed a mint tea for 3 dirham (20 pence!!). A fantastic find for weary backpackers, you'll pay 20 dirham for chicken couscous and its tasty too!
