Restaurants

The people of Casablanca mix their African roots with their French heritage, and blend that with the bounty of the Atlantic to produce a cuisine unique to the world.  Dining in the evening does not start until the day has begun to cool though so restaurants generally don't open until sunset, perhaps 7pm or later.

From African restaurants though French fine dining, from patisserie and boulangerie to international choices from Asia and Europe there is no shortage of choices. 

Consider also the many great Street Food choices that enjoyed by the locals as much as by visitors.  As you walk through the medina and stroll the avenues of the city you will find stalls and small shops all around the city which offer great choices of authentic Moroccan food.  From the streets it is possible to order the famed soupe Marocaine or Moroccan Soup with it's unique blend of herbs and spices, a rich meat and lentil meal in itself particularly when served with some tasty flat breads.
