Café Restaurant Samarkand

Seafood in Dakhla

This waterfront cafe has views of the white cliffs of Africa from its Silk Road–inspired pergolas. The menu features fish and other dishes; order in advance for couscous or fish pastilla (savoury-sweet pie). An upstairs pavilion is a great escape from Dakhla's dusty streets, and Samarkand is one of the town's only cafes where the clientele regularly includes both men and women.
