L'hippocampe has probably the best vue to the lagoon and you will be able to shoot nice pics in their terrace. However, a coffee there is very pricey. We were three and ordered a mint tea as well as two lemon tarts. We ended paying 165dhs, which is overpriced by local standards.

This restaurant has a pleasant, rustic decor, reminiscent of a hunting lodge (complete with Wild Boar head mounted over the fireplace). It is located right on the lagoon, with tables on a patio where one can admire the view. But the service was odd. We may have gone on an "off" night. We ordered the brochette, and were told there...

Food can be excellent but service can be eccentric. Stick to seafood - delicious prawn cocktail, crab salad, sea bass, lobster, etc.. The position, overlooking the lagoon and next to the derelict royal palace, cannot be bettered. The cassis for the kir was off but the wines are fine.

Shrimp and octopus salads made for wonderful lunches. Fried calamari was tender. Grilled fish for dinner was simply but well prepared.

I love the beautiful garden and gorgeous view of the sea, but I think my favorite part is the oysters, which are raised here. They're large and briny - it really feels like you're tasting the sea. The other seafood is fresh too, but the oysters are my favorite. The salade variee of mostly raw vegetables is a nice complement,... More

The restaurant is nicely decorated woth candles but it completely lacks of atmosphere. Music was bad and the guy at the cash till was acting like he was making people a... More

We made two visits in a week to this attractive hotel restaurant and were happy with both experiences.The first time we were alone on a small covered terrace(it was chilly outside), but it felt like a private dining room . The owner , however, carried on an acrimonious mobile telephone call of increasing volume for most of the meal,whilst roaming... More

We had oysters, calamari, crab salad and fish. Everything was nice. You can sit outside to enjoy the lagoon during the day and sit inside in the evening as they lit a fire during winter. The staff were friendly.

We didn't stay here but went to the restaurant as we'd heard they had excellent seafood. We had the worse meal in our one month stay in Morocco. The waiter persuaded me to have the "special" that night - Paella. After waiting almost an hour, the meal arrived smelling burnt - which it was - the rice was totally stuck... More
