This Spanish restaurant is nestled between 2 other restaurants, across from a popular parking lot that sits on the Atlantic with a lovely view of the Hassan II mosque (especially in the early evening), just down the street from a soccer complex. The restaurant has 2-3 different rooms (and a small bar), with the covered outside patio area (with a... More

We were recommended this place for the view of the Hassan II Mosque. Well, the mist had rolled in from the Atlantic on the day we went so there was no view of the Mosque or the ocean. However, the food and service in this place is excellent, so it was well worth the leisurely walk from the Mosque. The... More

Good surprise! A nice quite restaurant in Casablanca. Spanish food, good fish. Nice service. Beautiful view of the sea and of the largest mosque in Africa. Today improve: when paying with card, one cannot add the tip to the amount paid with the card. Not practical when in a business lunch: one has to pay the tip from his own... More

Well-presented upmarket restaurant, despite the slightly rough surroundings outside. Great food though and fantastic view of Mosque Hassan II. Their 'large tapas plates' are exactly that and very well made. Highly recommended

I went to this store for the first time with a group of colleagues for business dinner and I really enjoyed my food. Portions are good, the food variety is amazing. We went for seafood platter, soup, lots of delicious appetisers, and the best paella I've had ever. Even better than the one I had in Barcelona. The service is... More

I ate a beef in a red wine sauce and a Chocolate fondant and fresh orange juice. We had to wait a long time for the first plate, I thought that I was going to die, but the quality and the taste of the food was delicious and a good size. It's too fancy, so try to go with nice... More
