Heard good things but didn't expect we'd visit three times in three days (one for appetizers, once for drinks, once for dinner). It was one of our best casual meals in Morocco. Hummus and fish plate were favorites. Top drink was the watermelon juice. Tip:...More

We loved the meal we had here! The food is so fresh and delicious, and so are the cocktails ;-) the view doesn't suck either! You should definitely put this place on your list for dinner at least one night while you are in Tangier!

This is my favourite watering hole with a view. You can see Spain on the other side, plus sweeping views of the Tangier corniche. Watch the ferries and fishing boats roll in and out. I have only been able to experience a drink here, since...More

This cafe is right by the Kasbah Museum. It's built into the wall and the restaurant is on several levels. You have to walk up a few flights, one being circular, to get to the roof top area. But it's well worth it - the...More

A little blue place on the top of Medina near Kasbah with a stunning marina and sea view. The meal was very delicious, we had Chicken Tajine (maybe the best in Morocco so far) and John Dory fish plate. Total lunch price with drinks and...More

A short walk from our Riad, amazing views of the ocean and fortress walls. Food was good but not outstanding. Cute little place though but would recommend more for tea than a full meal.

The restaurant is spread over a few floors, so you get your own space. Very nicely done up in blue tones, with a washroom that is considered great by Tangier's standards! Excellent service - they are able to communicate well in English here. We were...More

Can't speak for the food. However, We turned up 2 times and this place was closed at times it should've been open for both breakfast and lunch. The other two times we were turned down because 'the kitchen was not ready' The view is stunning...More

The service at this restaurant has been among the worst I have ever experienced. I made a reservation the day before and received confirmation, then had my hotel call to confirm the reservation, which was confirmed by the number available on TripAdvisor. When we arrived...More

as others here have written, the view from here is marvellous, and so it's still worth going for that, if you have lots of time and are in a very relaxed mood. The staff is slow, mirthless and cold, though, and the food very ordinary.

Sorry, I can't recall. The food was very nice but the main reason for going is to enjoy the roof top dining area which has AMAZING views!

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...
