If you want a beautiful view with no food than Mercat is your place. We waited for a half hour and we're not served in spite of other people coming after us. Can't comment on the food as we went across the street to Goss!p. Much better restaurant!

I went to Mercat on Sunday February 25th 2018, this was the first day of spring, which means everyone in Casablanca wanted a terrace overlooking the ocean. And I called late, and needed a table for one person. " Aucun problème Monsieur, soyez le bienvenu" (not a problem Sir, you're most welcome) good start...

On arrival a slim and elegant maître d'hôtel managed very professionally the crowd, including locals who tried to jump the waiting line in and got me in less than 10 minutes a first line ocean view on the banquette. In the meantime I had let fall from my pocket a 50 Dirham banknote, without even noticing. Guess what? A waiter came to me with a smile and gave it back...Frankly how often do you see this nowadays?

I ordered the shrimp cocktail in avocado as a starter, everything fresh and well presented on a dandelion salad in home made well balanced dressing. Yummy...
As there was no Semillant White left in half bottle, the same waiter suggested the half of Marces de Riscal, and that was good piece of advice; nice dry and fruity Spanish piece of wine.
As a main course I chose the grilled squid, they were cooked to perfection avoiding the typical chewy sensation you too often get, and were served on delicate mash potatoes, unusual but truly interesting combination.
As a desert I could not resist the crème catalane, again freshly made with the so nice hard-and-soft feeling as the sugar layer was thin and well grilled.
All this for 480 Dirhams coffee included.
You'd be fool to miss this place on a sunny day.

I had a long lunch at Mercat with family and friends and it was simply perfect — sunny views of the beach and ocean, fresh fish, white wine, and great service. It’s an amazing place to get away from the city’s bustling atmosphere and relax for a few hours.

The menu is impressive — from tapas and paella to Peruvian specialties such as ceviche and other “crudos,” as well as an amazing quinoa-avocado salad.

The service is very efficient and friendly too. Give it a try if you’re around the Corniche!

We had the calamari, shrimp(Moroccan style), Spanish potatoes, and the fish of the day a la maroucaine style and they were all absolutely delicious. The food was fresh, the staff was friendly, music was nice, and the view was very relaxing.

Located right next to the beach with a beautiful view over the ocean, the restaurant has a varied menu of fish and meats. It's refined cuisine and my group had mixed appetizers to start that were really good.
I had grilled salmon for main course and it was cooked to perfection.
Overall, it was a very enjoyable experience
