Rabat-Sale-Zemmour-Zaer Region, Morocco Food Guide: 10 Middle Eastern food Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Rabat

October 3, 2019 Elouise Mccaul

Reviews on Middle Eastern food in Rabat, Rabat-Sale-Zemmour-Zaer Region, Morocco. Morocco's coastal capital since 1912, Rabat has just over a million people. Modern and even reserved by Moroccan standards, the city also has many fascinating historic sites, including the picturesque Kasbah of the Udayas, built in the mid-12th century. The unique Hassan Tower, begun at the end of the 12th century, was meant to have the world's largest minaret, but was never completed. Just opposite the tower lies the 20th-century Mausoleum of Mohammed V, another of the city's main attractions.

Very much enjoyed this restaurant and highly recommend. Good mix of locals and tourists. Great food and authentic, neighborhood atmosphere. Also, one of least expensive dinners that we’ve had in Morocco, which was a bonus. Call for reservations because it gets really busy. We missed our time frame for our reservation and had to wait in line for a while to get a table, but that was our fault.

EL Patio

Unwind at a contemporary Rabat restaurant inspired by a French brasserie. Light bathes the terrace with views of the garden and soaring palm trees. Seated at a cherry-red dining chair, taste Mediterranean dishes and sip fine Bordeaux.

Was recommended this place by a friend - right in town, very close to the medina. I had rice cooked with aubergine and meat - very delicious meal. Topped with their Moroccan mint tea which was just sweet enough. One of their staff spoke English so he helped me with the menu and gave me the rice recommendation. The other staff didn't speak English but they were very friendly and nice. Highly recommended and will come again if in Rabat.Thank you pleasure having you

We visited with a group as part of a tour. Our lunch started with a large plate of vegetables to share at our low stools and low table. The vegetables were a fresh start with carrots, lentils, zucchini and other things. They were followed by a tagine prepared chicken with rutabaga and carrots. Others found the chicken to be flavorful but the piece we shared was rather dry and bland. The carrots and rutabaga were wonderful. The next course was beef with couscous. It was followed by fruit and cookies. The oranges were beautiful and tasty, the loquats were delicious and the shortbread cookies were excellent. The service was abrupt. The food arrived when it was ready and without any warning. There was little interchange with the servers. However, we can appreciate cultural differences and we could appreciate that it might be very difficult for them to be serving food during the day in the month of Ramadan.

At first look, the room is attractive but the seating is odd and inconvenient. Some tables were so low that you couldn’t get your legs under them when seated. The restaurant wasn’t busy so we moved but few patrons didn’t help service. It was slow and inept. Our mains were eventually delivered before our starters, which the waitress denied we had ordered. The mains were removed and harira, which we ordered, was delivered. It was a thin, unappealing version of the national soup.When we finally got to the mains, they were just OK, no better. For example, I ordered a grilled lamb dish which was actually braised...a Moroccan version of oso buco. The accompanying vegetables were so overcooked they were reduced to a paste.

This restaurant is on the main drag in the medina and is a sanitised place to eat inexpensive street food. It is relatively clean and tidy with a glass front looking out on the street vendors. Service was good and the food is cheap and okay - nothing sensational.

La Koutoubia

Reviewed By DonaldLA

This restaurant at 10 Pierre Parent St is intimate. The menu is substantial, but they only prepare some of the dishes to keep freshness a priority. The usual olives and nuts were followed by... Tajines of beef and prunes seasoned with cinnamon, chicken with olives and lemon, Cous-Cous two full bottles of wine, a beer and fabulous bread for $90 for SIX ADULTS. Full dinner for each of us. Great and elegant service. The mint tea was perfect.

What a place! Amazing atmosphere and excellent food and as expected, a very good and friendly service! Slightly pricy (well below than EU standard) compared to other places, but absolutely worth. Carfeul if you just stop by for dinner, not AVLB all nights and reservation for dinner only is suggested.
