In Morocco’s commercial capital, it is really no surprise that the cuisine is varied and exotic, with everything from traditional Moroccan favourites to creative international dishes. All of this can be enjoyed in Casablanca’s beauty spots, thanks to the calm evenings and warm summers. Read on to find out about the best places in which you can dine al fresco.
One of the best restuarants in the city, Le Rouget de l’Isle, invites guests to relax in the magnificent 1930s villa in which it is housed, complete with period furniture, and in particular to admire the creative artworks from the very owner of the restaurant which adorn the walls. Importantly though, the restaurant boasts an equally charismatic and enchanting outdoor seating area, with dim lighting and beautiful greenery which create a stunning backdrop for the exquisite dining experience offered here. Guests can sit at inviting round tables in the garden, which are particularly beautiful by night, and feast on impeccable, and welcomingly light French food.
The stylish and modern Cabestan Restaurant has been pleasing guests for over 40 years. With a newly renovated look, the restaurant is attracting even more guests who flock here not only for the tempting range of Mediterranean dishes, as well as its exclusive club and attractive lounge bar, but for the exceptional ocean views. Whilst the inside is contemporary and refreshing, guests often choose to enjoy the outdoor seating area, where, protected by sun umbrellas, you have the chance to sit just metres away from the fresh and calming sea whilst enjoying a cocktail or a satisfying meal.
Very popular with the locals, this modern and welcoming restaurant also boasts excellent sea views, and a fantastic and fresh seafood menu to complement them. The seafood menu attracts repeat visitors thanks to the fact that it changes according to the pattern of the daily catch, meaning more variety and guaranteed freshness. Twice being awarded the Best Table in the Great French Cuisine African Continent award, A Ma Bretagne continues to blend the French with the African by combining gourmet French cooking techniques with fresh local products. Most popular in the restaurant has to be its inviting outdoor terrace which overlooks the Atlantic with some of the most stunning views.
With an atmosphere to match its vibrant name, Tahiti Beach Club invites guests to relax on a charming sheltered wooden terrace, feast on some alternative Italian cuisine, and enjoy relaxing pool and sea views. An exceptional outdoor dining location, La Terrazza offers a real taste of paradise, along with some of the most flavoursome and delicious Italian favourites, from pizza to spaghetti, and of course, ice cream. A fantastic alternative to the traditional tajines, and an ideal location right on the tip of the sea.
This restaurant-lounge bar is a truly international hotspot in Casablanca, providing an alternative to traditional Moroccan architecture and cuisine. With a unique and imposing interior, complete with white chairs, white and grey marble, and countless shiny silver mirrors, it certainly has a contemporary and even futuristic ambiance. What is particularly attractive about this modern restaurant however is the private outdoor seating area. Whilst it doesn’t boast fantastic sea or mountain views, the feeling of exclusivity makes it a friendly and intimate place to dine and enjoy a unique combination of flavours.
