Set in an old 30’s courtyard-style grand-mansion the restaurant is filled with the decorative details reminiscent of the film: curved arches, a sculpted bar, balconies, balustrades as well as brass lighting and plants that cast luminous shadows on white walls. The food is a wonderful mix of international-French and Moroccan.

Although this restaurant had nothing to do with the movie it is a “must do” for dinner when in Casablanca.
