Description: Rick's Cafe Casablanca is a restaurant, bar and cafe located in the city of Casablanca, Morocco. Opened March 1, 2004, the place was designed to recreate the bar made famous by Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in the movie classic Casablanca. Set in an old courtyard-style mansion built against the walls of the Old Medina of Casablanca, the restaurant - piano bar is filled with architectural and decorative details reminiscent of the film: curved arches, a sculpted bar, balconies, balustrades as well as beaded and stencilled brass lighting and plants that cast luminous shadows on white walls. There is an authentic 1930's Pleyel piano and As Time Goes By is a common request to the in-house pianist

Not child friendly and rude wait staff. All they could say was no you can't sit here or there even though the place was empty. I came to relax and ended up almost getting into a fist fight. I am sacred for life. Will never go back.

Everything about this place takes you back to the great film, Casablanca. You can tell the owner wants you to have an experience that you will remember as first class for a very long time. The service is so special that everyone feels like a movie star, not some nameless face in a crowd. The food was all great but what you will write home about is the atmosphere. The piano player sits down at the vintage piano at 9pm and probably about half way through his set he'll play it again -As Time Goes By. It is really a very special moment.

I had been told "It's not about asking her to marry you, it's about her having the best story to tell all her girlfriends"... so with that in mind I set about organising a marriage proposal with the help of Cathy Kriger. Which is not easy to do from the other side of the World.

Everything was perfect, we were given a table next to the piano, they gave use our own copies of the menu for the night (with the date printed on them) and at exactly the right moment, Issam began to play "As Time Goes By". You couldn't get a better atmosphere, including excellent service, amazing food and just one of the best nights of our life. We genuinely felt like we were in the movie (except at the close of the night I ended up with the girl).

I can highly recommend anyone wanting that unique experience to visit Rick's Cafe, you will not be disappointed.

This property near the port is lovingly renovated to resemble the set of the movie "Casablanca" and manages well to capture the spirit of romance and intrigue. The decor is marvelous, and they even have a piano like Sam's. They could charge more for the experience of drinking and dining, but to their credit, the prices for both food and drink are reasonable. Book ahead - there only a few seats (at the bar) for drop-ins. The bartender is very friendly, helpful and informative. The ice cream desserts are spectacular, especially the Choc O' Chocolate.
