We are visiting Morocco for a family holiday and after looking at restaurant reviews on TA, hubby and I fancied this restaurant whilst in Casablanca, with its interesting and varied menu of duck and foie gras, so we planned to visit. We had the address, knew it was in Quartier Racine, and we jumped in a red petit taxi. It seems that taxis here don't have maps or sat navs and they don't know all the roads or restaurants either, not even the main boulevards sometimes! It seems that a lot of this area is a building site and we drove round and round for ages. Eventually, we gave up, got out and walked and asked a well-heeled passer-by, who knew the restaurant and the road!

We were glad to arrive at the restaurant, it was busy, bustling and felt friendly and welcoming, bright and sunny, with great food smells. Our children are small and I didn't see any obvious choices for them on the menu (they liked some pate/ terrine but wouldn't eat foie gras), so I asked and the lovely waitress, who I believe is the daughter of the owners, offered some pasta with cheese (actually a rich cheese sauce) and this was made especially for the children, which was very kind. We shared pate and a salad to start - both excellent. Then I had lasagna with foie grass, which was delicious - light fresh sheets of pasta with seared foie gras in the middle and some light shredded vegetables on top, no tomato sauce or cheese and no long baking for this one; it was rich, quite buttery and very good! Hubby had risotto with foie gras, which was also delicious he said. Afterwards, we shared homemade chocolate cake, which was superb. My eldest child had a strawberry cheesecake, which was very pretty and she enjoyed it. We also bought some homemade marshmallow to take away, which was really good, too. All the staff were very nice, very attentive and they brought a gift of a little sweet for he children, which was very kind.

We really enjoyed our meal and would recommend this restaurant.

If you are hunting for it yourself, there is a Petit Bateau shop (amongst other smart shops) on the boulevard nearby and the smaller road on which the restaurant is located goes off at an angle just up a little from here.

the one thing you leave this restaurant with is gratitude for the service and caring given to ensure your satisfaction, as well as the genuine interest of the owners. the food menu was interesting and the quality was good. Nice overall experience and one of the best as per local standards. the place is small but cozy.

So we are on this business trip to Casablance and are looking for a good place to eat. We open tripadvisor and are attracted to F.Kabbaj because it mentions so prominently "Foie Gras" and take a taxi to try it out. After an interesting taxi ride ( they all are interesting in Casablanca) we fins the restaurant and it turns out that they only serve lunch. My colleague speaks french very well and starts a discussion on food wit the owner and his wife while they try to think of a good restaurant in the neighbourhood. As they one they think of is closed and others are far away they decide to offer us a meal in the lready closed restauran.
So we end up with a meal starting with a lbeatifull salad, a foie gras lasagna which was just incredible delicious and an assortment of nice cheeses to top it off. This all accompanied with some very nice wines.
So this service was really out of the ordinary and I assume they don't do this every day but I really feel honoured and special that we run into a restaurant run by two people with such an incredible sense of service and love for what they are doing.
The only thing I can do in return is tell the world what a great place this is, what a wonderful service one can occasionally run into and what a delicious food one can sometimes encounter.
If you love food, like good service and happen to be in Casablanca there is really no excuse not to have lunch at F.Kabbaj.

F. Kabbaj, located in a sophisticated area of the city, specializes in duck and fois gras. My husband and I are addicted to the place. The food is cooked to perfection, served beautifully by a wonderful staff. Honestly, this is the kind of place with magnificent food that we could never tire of. We can't wait to go again next week!
