“Hit and miss”
Reviewed June 21, 2010

My boyfriend and I made a visit to Yacout one night, and it was a hit-and-miss experience. It was absolutely full of Moroccans – we were the only Westerners there. This is usually a good sign, but here it did not entirely prove to be so. The menu was very cheap, with three set courses for 70dh (around £5.30). We didn't opt for the set menu but instead chose a pigeon pastilla (a Moroccan specialty) to share, while I opted for the chicken and lemon tagine and my boyfriend went for the lamb and prune tagine. The tagines arrived first, and they were a mixed bag. Mine was good: lots of chicken, lots of sumptuous slow-cooked olives, and an over-arching deep lemon flavour. My boyfriend's tagine, on the other hand, was about half the size and contained only a small scrap of lamb, though there were many prunes and almonds, and it did not have any depth of flavour. He was very disappointed. Next came the pastilla, which was thoroughly delicious: fresh out of the oven, the pastry was delicate and the flavours wonderful.

The service was also strange; our waiter was pretty moody and only raised a smile when we gave him a small tip at the end. There were cats everywhere, with kittens jumping on to the tables when we were eating, and while in other restaurants the waiters made efforts to get the cats away, here they were allowed to roam free.

I'm not sure about Yacout. It was a reasonable price and some dishes were great, while others were poor. You'll need to be lucky!

“Good value for money.”
Reviewed April 3, 2010

Had lunch here on our last day in Agadir. We came here especially to have some Pizza which was ok. Not too good & not too bad either. They never had fries to go with the pizza so we ordered salad. The salad bowl would have been nice if they did not put a chunk of fish on top of it. I think their other local food dishes would be much better than pizza. Overall a nice place & Good value for money.

“Try for pastries and coffee, skip for your main meal”
Reviewed February 23, 2010

Yacout is known by locals for their pastries and breads. It is a popular place for breakfast and coffee. Also excellent in the early evening for smoothies and harira (traditional lentil soup), but do yourself a favor and skip the tagines and couscous. The pizza isn't bad for a snack, but be prepared to wait awhile for it to be ready. You will be getting reheated food. There are other better places to have a traditional meal.

“Popular, inexpensive and relaxing”
Reviewed June 1, 2009

Yacout is a small but well maintained restaurant on Ave 28 Fevre, off Ave Hassan II.
The set menu comprises either salad Marocain or small chicken pastilla as a starter, chicken tajine or seven veg tajine with cous cous for the main meal and patisserie Marocain (sweets) or speciality of the house for dessert. There is an additional regular menu with, for example, kefta tajine with eggs. Given as starters are two large bread rolls which go better with Moroccan soup (harira).
Three courses will cost 65Dh and bottles of soft drinks are the cheapest in town.
I go here each time I visit Agadir. Staff appreciate tips no matter how small.
Yacout has an internal restaurant but in hot weather it is more pleasant to sit in the covered courtyard where there are strange creatures roaming the floor, not sure what it was, some kind of fowl almost like a turkey. Caged birds also adorn the place and a central fountain in the courtyard gives a sense of tranquility. Also in the courtyard is a chap making fresh pizza.
Next to the restaurant is a patisserie selling Moroccan and Lebanese sweets.
Closes round about 10pm.
