“Tourist? - go for the Oysters”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

Ostrea is great for its range of Oysters, fresh, right side ingredients for a super treat. For the other dishes take someone local/ Freench speaker with you. English is not commonly spoken among any of the waiting staff. Although they understand. All that I have eaten here during any of the last 10 trips in as many months have been very good hence highly recommended if you can speak and understand French / Arabic.

“Great oysters, good seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2011

The restaurant location at the docks implies really fresh seafood and this seems the case. The seafood pasta was quite good, but the star was the raw oysters which wer super fresh, cold. Large, plump and briney. That's really why we went here. Had some decent wine from Meknes area. Atmosphere nice and we had a nice table by the window. Initially, the music was way too loud, but they toned it down with our request. All in all a very nice meal at a a reasonable cost.

A medium price restaurant with a fair service and good fish. The menu could be more complete.

“tourist trap”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2011

this is the deal. Whilst leaving the restaurant after paying 1780 Dhs for the three people I am asked to pay a tip. However the meal was average, the dessert was disgusting and the service was basic. Pay a tip for what?! This is why business tourists stay in their hotel. What can you expect? I said to the waiter "either I pay you a tip or I never come here again and tell everyone I know not to come here" ...he took the tip!!!!!

“For all the oyster lovers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2010

Ostrea is actually a romantic location, although the harbor surroundings are not. You’ll be served in a relaxing modern ambient on the first floor. Don’t expect too much attention to details. But the the courtesy of the service is assured. They speak a fluent French and you’ll feel as you were in a Marseille harbor based restaurant.
The food is fine. Nothing particularly rare by the way. Just good cared food, the French way. You can enjoy meat of fish. But there’s no reason for you to go to Ostrea if you’re not looking for a very fresh seafood or fish dinner.
For those who love oysters (as I do)… that’s your place! Choose your type and caliber and just enjoy. Top quality oysters.
The bill won’t beat you and you’ll you definitely find it fair.
