The Port In Casablanca

By Bewildered in Morocco

September 10, 2017

The port of Casablanca is one of the main economic spots in the city, but the locals also know that they can go there for a Sunday lunch with the family or buy fresh fish from the fishermen.

There are a couple of restaurants and bars in the port, but to find the cheapest and most “local” place, you will need to walk deep into the port :)

If you like fancy and neat places – forget this one. A bunch of stalls, wooden benches and food prepared behind the truck – yeah, you’re not mistaken. The menu costs 2 EUR and consists of tea refill (atay b’n3an3a), bread (khobz), fried fish (friture), eggs with shrimps (m’kila) and hot harissa sauce.

I once took my friends there, Westfalia Digital Nomads, and they loved the place!

The port is super easy to find, it is on the main street in the city centre (centre ville) and just around the corner of Casa Port train station! You can get there by taxi from any part of the city. Read my guide to taking taxi in Morocco.

Here are some photos of the port:

  • I had shrimp and eggs for breakfast on the port in Casablanca in 2001. Aunt was one of the best breakfast I’ve ever had I constantly think about it and I constantly try to replicate it. Good good stuff.
