Clean and serviceable for a lunch or dinner at good prices. It is just up from the central market in the medina.

If you're looking to experience some traditional food where locals eat cous cous, this is the place to go. It is quite simple, yet authentic cuisine and we had a chance to try it off the very first day of our arrival to Rabat. Plus the staff was so friendly and helpful, great people.

Restaurant de la Liberation is extremely popular among Moroccans, who make up almost the total of its clientele. The place is clean but basic, a series of wooden chairs and tables, so don't expect anything fancy. Testimony to the quality of its food, the place is constantly busy, the staff is courteous, fast and extremely professional. Prices are super-cheap, we... More

We went to Restaurant Liberation for Friday couscous. We were served very quickly and the food was hot. The couscous was served separate from its vegetables--the vegetables and meat came in a bowl and the couscous was served on a plate for the sauce to be ladled over.

Really Low quality food. Everything was bland, dry and lazely cooked. Took a look At the kitchen and it was disgustingly dirty. I am moroccan and felt embarrased having brought my norwegian visitors here !!!

This is a basic cafe rather than a restaurant. Nevertheless, if you are looking for cheap, sit down food in the heart of the medina that is also tasty and filling, rather than somewhere fancy, then stop here. We enjoyed chicken on skewers and tasty merguez sausages both served with chips, rice, and salad. As with most non-tourist places -soft... More

Just after arrived in Rabat we came across this place. The stuff is really lovely, local food and atmosphere ! The roasted chicken was amazing and we tasted fresh fruit salad. If you are looking something more local and less touristic definitely visit this place! You will feel welcomed. All the best to lovely Sir that served us today.

It's nothing fancy but a really good place for a cheap eat. There are lots of locals so I guess you can't do much wrong. Would return there anytime!
