Description: A bit of history about Le Salon Bleu and The Kasbah Neighbourhood This quaint traditional Moroccan house is situated directly in what used to be the ancient stables of the Sultan`s Palace, and for a long while it had also served as a home for visiting British diplomats. The celebrated 17th century writer Samuel Pepys was notorious for writing endlessy in his journal under the fig tree just next to the small courtyard. Francis Bacon had a painting studio on the same street and the Rolling Stones lived just a stones throw away. The Kasbah has long inspired writers and artists of the twentieth century: Matisse, Delacroix, Kerouac, Jean Genet, William Burroughs, Paul Bowles... so we`ve opened up this small salon and restaraunt so that you may drink coffee and enjoy the ocean view while resting in their proverbial ribcages. Le Salon Bleu has been highly recommended by the international press and tour guides: New York Times, Le Monde, Liberation, Le Figaro, Lonelyplanet, Guide du Routard, Guide Michelin, Elle, Marie-Claire, L'Officiel, Vogue...

This restaurant is nicely decorated and has some gorgeous views over Tangier Harbour. It was perfect for our first night there. We only had a light snack, salad and hummus, which was a little bland. How they had delicious fresh juices and the service was fine.

The only things I liked bout this place were the view from the kind of tower, and the mixed blue white design. The coffee shop needs some painting, seat are not comfortable except on sofa, which is always taken. The neighbors roofs need some cleaning .. the price Is reasonable, beverage like tea coffee in the 2 €, the waiter was kind of rude when he brought us a wrong order, then he made it up instantly.

After very bad experience in other restaurant in Tangier we decided to try Salon Bleu. Highly recommended and would come back again. Good customer service, nice food and environment. Lovely view too!

great place in the pinnacle of Tangiers and the Kasba, next to the mytical DAR ZERO. the people that work in this place are just the most fantastic friendly lovelly persons, its a great atmosphere, all the way uo to the top terrasse ,that overlooks the city. the food is homy and cosy morocan fare. and it is very strange that this place belongs to a very unpleasant , sour little french men , that owns also the DAR NOUR. just around the corner , but mercifully we never had to cross paths wit him at the SALON BLEU, and if you ever have the unfortunate encounter , ... well ... just run for the hills!!!! LOL!!!

I was really surprised by the quality of what they served us. Go there with no doubt, it's probably the best place to have diner at la Casba (the highest part of the Medina).
The views is absolutely beautiful and you might have the chance of being sit on a confortable sofa.
The funny thing is that to serve you, the waiters have to climb 3 floors: they must be incredibly smart not to break anything.
Just go there and you'll find out why.
A must. I shall go back there in every visit…
