Possibly the best place to enjoy a typical mint tea in the Moroccan capital. It usually comes with typical side dishes and all for only a little more than one euro!
I think a visit is mandatory if you're passing through the Kasbah to enjoy the views from this terrace and the Bou Regreg estuary.
This is a great place near Souika Street if you want to eat fast and cheap. We ordered three sets of different assortments of fish, with beans, bean soup, and with all that the grand total was only 7 euros! We were full and very satisfied with the quality of the food. The meal comes with chips, sardines, whitefish and some other stuff. You can order fresh water fish and sea fish, since they have the two next. Around the square there are several guys ve roasted the pesacdo, and also make fried eggplant, potatoes ... Accompany the dishes with bread and lemon. Open only at noon, close around 7 pm.
The Blue Berry is a tea room and ice cream parlor in Rabat. It contrasts with the traditional city that's close by, near the water, with leisurely views of the Sale port on the other side of the Bou Regreg river. It opened in June of last year. You have views of Oudayas Castle when you look up, too. It's a nice end to the day spent fishing. They serve French crepes, some Italian dishes, sandwiches and ice creams. High prices, almost the same as in Europe.
Venezia Ice cream is a Moroccan chain, with handmade products that are good. It can be found on the seafront in Rabat, opposite Salé Navy - Rabat and the river Bou Regreg. It's a lovely place, which is more expensive than regular ice cream in the city. UUN iced out 4 euros for two scoops, while in the medina it only costed 1 euro. For that reason do not see many Moroccans, or it is an upper class society who can afford it. Venezia Ice makes an incredible hazelnut ice cream, white chocolate, nougat , etc. The sorbets are also tasty. And there are little things to snack on, like paninis, club sandwich ... The coffee is 2.50 euros, with a bottle of water.
This cafe is situated in front of Bab Khebaz gardens. We were looking for shelter from the rain and ended up at this café with gardens in front, which is much nicer than the other side of the street, where there is another café overlooking traffic. It is cheap and alcohol is not served. Peppermint tea kindly comes with a small doll in order for you not to burn your hands when touching the kettle. Tea was 7 dirhams if I remember correctly. This place only serves drinks and some breads and rolls in the morning and you have to go behind the central market if you want to eat something. Inside you will only find men watching sport on a big screen.
The royal snack is in the heart of Rabat, behind the cinema. It's a tiny place with an inner room, and has no balcony. They were nice but slow to prepare sandwiches when rushed. You have to choose if you want a sandwich or ground beef, shawarma, chicken breast, turkey , etc. And then they add the ingredients of salad, tomato, olives and other vegetables. Here comes the sandwich served with rice and chips. They are big, but the bread was not fresh. At the end we were full and paid 3 euros per person, which is fair, but the truth is that there are much cheaper places.
