Description: Le Casablanca has great, homemade fresh mediterranean cuisine which has never disappointed us in the years we have had meals there. We have have lovely, tasty, and unfussy North African couscous there, as well as Tagines, lovely vegetarian meals as well. You can bring your own wine, so this also makes the evening quite reasonably priced. Jo, the owner and chef, is always attentive to details and makes sure you are happy and having a good time. This personal touch adds to the homely, relaxed atmosphere which has made us go back again and again over the years.You'll eat very well, you'll be welcome, and you will feel that you've had a relaxing time with friendly people around you! Highly recommended.

“Good restaurant but menu could do with an update.”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Been to Casablanca many times over the years and being able to bring your own drinks is brilliant and saves a fare few pennies if you're a wine guzzler with your meal. Atmosphere is always good and you don't have to whisper or feel self conscious if you talk a litte louder. Tagine meals are excellent and the Dolma starter is my favourite. My only niggle is if you've been coming here for years, you could store the menu in your memory as it never changes. Went couple of weeks ago and there were no specials board visible which made me wonder if they are using 'in season' produce when they get the chance. Either way, its generally a good evening and reasonably priced. The waiting staff have also improved from my last visit.

“Excellent”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Reserved a place for a party, but had to re-arrange and went for a romantic meal instead. Turned out it was only us eating there that night and the restaurant was open just for us! Felt like a prince!! Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Embodies all that is best about Aberystwyth - unique, local, friendly and just good! You will not find a comparable place to eat anywhere in the UK.

“Superb”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Have been to Casablanca a few times with family and fiends and have always had tasty food with a friendly service. The restaurant is small, cosy and comfortable but yet big enough for those personal family parties. I like the idea of taking your own alcoholic drinks. I will be happy to go to Casablanca anytime. And will be happy to recommend the restaurant to any one.

“Great menu and food!”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Recently visited here on a trip to Aberystwyth and cannot wait to return. The food was cooked perfectly and wasn't expensive. All of the staff were attentive and friendly and very well presented.
Our meals were all well cooked and to our specifications, which we were very grateful for.
The restaurant itself is very well-decorated and cosy and makes you feel very much at home.
Will definitely be visiting again should I return to Abersywtyth - plus learning that you can take your own alcohol is definitely a bonus! Thank you.

“Nice supper”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Enjoyed a nice supper ... the lamb dish was a bit thinly cut, but the lamb tagine was superb (very tasty). You need to bring your own alcohol - which I think is a bonus!
