Took me a while to find this place, as it is situated in a unknown street for the taxis.
It was worth it, as the food was amazing and the dessert also.

Following the reviews on TA, we booked dinner reservations at La Cocina for our last night in Casablanca. We had already dined at Rick's Cafe and Key West Club 20-1 which were both excellent in food, service, ambience, etc., and since La Cocina was rated the #1 restaurant in the city, we were expecting something special. The restaurant was only a two minute walk from our hotel, The Kenzi Tower, and our first clue as to the accuracy of the #1 rating should have been when the Concierge did not know of the restaurant or where it was located - a mere two blocks away! He knew of and was able to direct us to Club 20-1 which was three blocks from the hotel. I made the reservations with Pepe, the owner, through the TA link, and he was very prompt and accomodating with his pleasant response. The service was very good, as was the red Spanish wine that Pepe recommended. The paella, sadly was very pedestrian, nothing special. We were in Barcelona in July and the paella there was authentic, much better. The atmosphere on the night we were there was more that of a local sports bar than a fine dining, #1 rated restaurant. The restaurant lacks ambience, and does not contain the physical space to rise to the decor standards of Rick's or Club 20-1, which are beautiful in decor and ambience. We only had the paella so I cannot speak for the other dishes, but we would not return when there are so many dining choices in Casablanca. Lastly, the signature desert that is pictured on the TA page was not available and the bar cannot make cappuccino.

This restaurant is a great find. Excellent food at really good prices if you stick with the menu of the day. The food was tasty - the paella wonderful - and the recommended Moroccan red wine exceptional. All staff were friendly and helpful.

For me it is the best restaurant in Casablanca. Everything is great (price, food, management,...) They have everything, paella, seafood, meat, pasta, salads, good wine.
The manager is a great guy, Pepe.
