Also known as Chez Frères Acherar. One of the quieter places to drink in Algiers.
Another good modern cafe with plenty of pavement seating, and one that’s not threatened by the concept of female customers.
Women will feel comfortable at this lovely cafe spread along the shady riverbank in the park. It's known for its good milkshakes.
Set deep in the palmeraie, this is a great place for a sheesha under the palm trees, or a coffee or cool drink...
Tables are set in a pretty shaded garden; it's very relaxed and popular with couples and families.
A step up from the street-side cafés, La Grotte, à la its name, is fitted out to look like the inside of a cave, albeit a cool, air-conditioned one. It tends to draw a younger crowd of men.
This busy café spills over onto the street and can get rowdy in the evenings but it's pleasant enough if you don't mind the choir of all-male voices.
A cut above the rest in terms of décor and service, although again it's mostly all men. Sheesha cost around TD1.5 and they have a real live coffee machine if you're craving an espresso or cappuccino.
Jutting into the lagoon at the far end of Mohammed V, this island cafe is a welcome bit of maritime focus in an otherwise concrete forest...
Look no further, this is Melilla’s bar zone, with 12 different options grouped side by side on the waterfront. Enter through the car park next to the courthouse.
With its long wooden bar and brass fixtures, the classy bar inside the Melilla Puerto follows the hotel's nautical theme...
This café-bar on the pleasure-yacht harbour is an exceedingly pleasant place for a drink in the late afternoon, particularly on its wide sunny terrace on the waterfront.
This small bar in the lee of a grand church has a local clientele happy to sip a beer and keep an eye on the plaza.
