Basic but cheap & tasty in the heart of the Medina

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... read 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!

Authentic local Moroccan food. Great atmosphere, good service and very well priced. The ingredients were all fresh and tasty. The portions are generous and the people are friendly.

We've had eaten here for two times, because the restaurant is just really good. It is located in the area of the medina and you'll find good Moroccan food here for a very reasonable price. (For example: two couscous with veggies and meat, two Moroccan mint tea and two sodas are only 90 dirham (about 9 euros)!! You'll also have... More

Food is very ordinary, but cheap. What made this place memorable is that it's bustling with local folks and is prime viewing for activities in the medina. I may eat here again tomorrow.

If you want to try the real "Moroccan experience" but are not brave enough to eat the street food (which I still highly reccomend to you!), you should take this place into account. It is a very basic restaurant whose busy waiters have just a hint of good manners, but the food is very cheap and tasty, as testified by... More

This restaurant definitely caters to tourist without feeling completely out of touch with locals. It's a great place to sip some mint tea and people watch or sit down for lunch or dinner.

Don't look at the atmosphere but just taste the food. Most locals just eat the harari soup (only 5 mad). But the meat and couscous tastes great. Worth while visiting in the Medina.

Liberation is on a busy medina street across from a mosque. It has a lot of tables covered in yellow plastic tablecloths and a mezzanine for dining that can be reached by a small staircase. The menus are Arabic on one side and French on the other. The food is basic Moroccan. Almost everyone gets harira (soup) to start their... More
