Great sheltered position on the beach with part shaded garden. Really very good food at reasonable prices. King size brochettes, selection of fish dishes, steak,pizzas , home made ice-cream my favourite place to eat and relax during my 3 month stay!

The Ocean Vagabond serves a variety of lunch time snacks in a friendly and "laid back" style. particularly good were the four cheese pizza and the duck salad. There is seating inside as well as an informal outdoor area.

I spent a couple of afternoons here. Food is excellent, it's really sheltered from the wind, good lounging areas and right on the beach with great views of the comings and goings. Staff super friendly.

Ocean vagabond is one of several bars all in a row on the beach. Some sell alcohol, but not this cafe. The furniture is painted bleached wood and there is plenty of shade. The menu seemed a bit more imaginative than other places and the food was freshly-cooked and tasty. We would definitely go again.

This is a popular and relaxed place overlooking the camel guys on the beach. Food and drinks are a more little expensive here, but the trip out of the beach from the medina is well worth walking. They also serve good beer. The garden is definitely finest, overlooking beach and camels and horses you can rent for a short try.... More

Wonderfully relaxed restaurant on the beach. Good food - 'I love these chips, papa' - and cold beers. Not the place for a Moroccan feast or if you're in a hurry. But great if you just want to laze away a few hours staring out at the sea and the sand. Pity about the hordes of Quad bikes parked at... More

Self-consciously cool beach club full of French bo-bos relaxing with bottles of local wine - by far the best hamburgers, salads and pizzas in Morocco. A little bit of Cap Ferret (rich/bohemian Atlantic coast resort near Bordeaux) transported to Africa. French management but mercifully un-snooty.

It's a lovely Cafe Restaurant on the beach where you can sit and read or lay down and enjoy the sun🌞 The staff is very friendly, the food is not good though, but it didn't matter to us. We just chilled and had a cup of tea there!

Both the restaurant and it's staff are very relaxed and easy-going. Go early in the afternoon, lay down in a sun lounger, order some "goodies" and just wait for the sunset...
