Sqala

Moroccan in Casablanca

Nestled in the ochre walls of the sqala, an 18th-century fortified bastion on the edge of the old medina, this pretty garden restaurant is a tranquil escape from the downtown bustle. Particularly popular for breakfast, it also serves briouates (bite-sized flaky-pastry triangles), tajines, pastillas (savoury pies) and brochettes. No alcohol is served, but there’s a good selection of fresh juices.
