“One of my favorite restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

I've been going here since they were in their old Concord location. Always great food and service. The exotic surroundings and bellydancers really take you to a different place. Dinner here is like a 2 hour vacation. Highly recommended.

“Excellent Moroccan food, warm hospitality, fun entertainment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2011

I've been to El Morocco several times over the past 15+ years, and it is still a great Moroccan restaurant very worth going to. We went again with family and friends, including several former Morocco Peace Corps Volunteers and their kids. The $29 (1/2 for under 12) prix fixe dinner menu is extremely generous, everyone agreed the food was excellent (we nearly all had varieties of lamb - tajines or couscous), the bstila (chicken cinnamon sweet pie in phylo crust) was fabulous. The entertainment (belly dancing!) was fun for the group to join in and try it out, and very entertaining. The hospitality from our host was very warm and the service was very atttentive. This rivals any Moroccan restaurant in the SF Bay Area. A great time was had by all!

“Excellent value and wide range of food choices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2011

You can't beat the value at $29 for a full meal including salad, appetizer, main dish, and desert. No utensils until the main dish, so wash your hands! It would be nice if they had nights without belly dancing, because sometimes you just want to eat, and don't need any entertainment...
