It was definitely Morrocan or Mediterranean food. the ambience of the restaurant was really nice. We had a salad and a main dish which we found was way to sweet for our tast. The owners were very friendly and very attentive!

Loved it. The atmosphere is familiar, the food is really delicious. I have several allergies, and they could prepare it to my taste with no extra charge and the food is not only delicious, is safe (I can't eat anywhere without getting ill). I'd return...More

There are some Spanish comments about the service and in fact the waitres was quite serious and cold in service not what we expect being in a restaurant and specially in Mexico City where service is very good. I took time to let her know...More

About as Moroccan-Algerien as you can get, and always great food, whatever you order.. The new location in the Roma neighborhood has a more "modern" Mahgreb atmosphere (and more space, perhaps later on a rooftop option, with more Arablic pastries) than the former one on...More

We visited this restaurant on a Wednesday evening in the hope of finding some Halal food in Mexico City. Despite being the only customers, the waitress was more interested in her phone than serving us. She also informed us that the food isn't Halal after...More

Everyone at La Casbah tries hard and succeeds in making a meal here a delightful experience. The food is great and never fails to please. The cous cous with lamb is delicious and the bastellas are wonderful. They have moved to a new location nearby...More

I really liked this little place. They had excellent harissa, the merguez were also delicious. I had chicken tagine which didn't actually arrive in a tagine which was a bit of a disappointment, but the food was certainly delicious, if maybe not exactly authentic. But...More

Known for its constant cultural and gastronomic
developments, Roma, is a beautiful neighborhood that
was once the place for poets such as Kerouac and
Ginsberg to call home. Galleries, museums and even
private residences are on beautiful display when
walking through Colima street to do some necessary
shopping or when going to the classic Cine Tonalá to
enjoy a delicious dinner and a great film. Top notch
