Excellent seafood Spanish style. Good choice of wine and very friendly professional service. In the new marina which makes for pleasant stroll per or post lunch/dinner.

“Improving”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

I recently visited the restaurant two times in a row for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Compared to last year it is improving both in terms of menu, and professional staff. Since last time the Japanese restaurant next door has closed and is being recoverted to an Italian style restaurant. Meanwhile the staff is working in Al Marsa (Spanish) and it may have given the incentive to improve a winning concept. The restaurant is located on the Sale side if the Bouregreg river inside the impressive new marina. The view from the terrace is very nice and lends itself well to the seafood specialties of Al Marsa. The food is excellent and the wine list adequate. The portions are almost too copious, but that's a minor issue. Let us hope it keeps improving and we will have one very good place for lunch in Rabat/Sale. And with the opening of the Italian restaurant next door we will have a true Mediterranien atmosphere in the Marina.

“Great in every aspect”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Great location (on the river banks), great views (on the old city, the medina and the ocean - ok view of the ocean is distant but yet it is there in the corner!), great seafood, great bread (olive bread just delightful), great service (very professional - army of waiters / waitresses - yet very friendly), great selection of local wines... an ideal place to end a visit of Rabat. A reservation might be essential over the weekend as this place attracts lots of local families / friends (or come early for a good table). This is definitely not your normal street corner restaurant so yes it is pricy for Morocco but honestly offers great value vs restaurants of this stature in Europe.

“Wonderful seafood!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

After touring Rabat there is no better spot for seafood than Al Marsa in the new marina! Superb quality and great Moroccan wines complemented our lunch. I felt good value considering how nice our experience was!
