Dar El Medina

Dar El Medina in the heart of Rabat’s old town offers reasonably priced Moroccan cuisine. Enjoy different kinds of couscous, tajine and mint tea in an authentic atmosphere before or after a long stroll through the medina.


Moroccan food is – in many ways, like the country itself – rich in flavors, aromas, and colours. Its scents and sweet-and-sour combinations are famous around the world. A meal requires all senses and is complemented by the scents of saffron, cumin, and coriander. You can taste the international star everywhere: couscous, or rather a whole range of couscous. Try a pastilla: a delicate pie that wonderfully combines finely chopped pigeon, parsley, hard-boiled egg, almonds, and honey. To top it off, it is sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. The famous tajine (meat, chicken or fish stew) accompanied by vegetables and fruits, is traditionally cooked in a covered terracotta dish.
