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

A place very much living of its name. Neither service nor food justify a visit.

About the movie but has nothing to do with the city.
It's hang out for American tourists and local business man. The cocktails are good but the food is just average.

Unfortunately, the owner of Rick's cafe has decided to cash in on the movie - yes, the restaurant looks nice inside, there's a piano, and a TV playing the movie. However, food is average, service is VERY slow (why does it take 15 minutes to get the bill??), and the place was full of 50-somethings wanting the nostalgia factor.

To eat at Rick's cafe, you need to book - the reason for this is that 1 table is booked for the whole evening! So you can't just turn up, unless you only want drinks or a dessert.

I don't really understand why this place is Number 1 - I guess it has something to do with the lack of good places to eat. Seriously, there are much better, unknown places to eat. Also, this place closes early, around 11pm, when everywhere else is open at that time.

We were part of a large, good-humoured group which is maybe the best way to see Rick's Café. The cocktails were excellent, sipped whilst watching snatches of the film on a large screen (sub-titles, no sound). We had a nice table overlooking the atrium so the nostalgic music wafted up pleasantly in the background. The food and wine, although maybe undistinguished, was certainly adequate for the occasion. The American lady owner was there to greet us as we left. Altogether a very enjoyable outing in a city which has clearly seen better days and has otherwise little to commend it.

Ok you have seen the movie and now you want to eat in Ricks. I felt the same way and I am glad I did the place is nice (compared to the rest of Casablanca).
The food was good, but not great. The atmosphere and service was brilliant in it and we got some great photos but try not to make it the highlight of your trip!!
