Moroccan
Morocco is a country of contrast, magic and timeless wonders. It is blessed with rich, nourishing land and mountain snows; beaches, deserts and lush oases.

Casbah's are in harmony amongst this backdrop. It is a sanctuary for Moroccans.

In this dining room you will witness authentic architecture, carvings, tiles, paintings and crafts which result from twelve centuries of Moroccan art.

The cuisine is presented in a fashion that enhances it's surroundings and is considered by culinary experts to be among the top three cuisines worldwide.

This is one of our favourite places to eat. The ambiance is matchless with the Moroccan theme throughout. The food is authentic and delicious. The owner and his family are friendly and helpful with quick service. We love it!

Amazing atmosphere with decor that will make you feel you are in a different world. Very attentive service with many food options for all dietary needs. The Tour of Morrocco was the best way to go for our table of 5. Flavorful, tasty, and filling, we did not leave hungry! The mint tea to finish was delightful. Would recommend for great night out with friends, family, or date night!

From the moment you walk through the swagged doorway you feel as though you’ve been transported to Morocco. The food choices are varied and everything we tried was delicious. We will definitely be back next time we’re in YYC.

I felt as if the food lacked flavour, I also felt like it was very expensive for what it was. The decorations inside are nice but I don't think I would recommend anyone to go there.

I would recommend this restaurant to try only but would not be rushing back any time soon and would not be a regular diner here. In particular, some of the dishes were very salty and did not have much flavor beyond that. The overall value of these dishes were not very good - the base would be between 18-22 dollars (rice or other grain and some veggies) and you would need to add a meat for about 10 dollars. This often ended up being about 4 fairly small cubes of meat.
The ambiance is quite good though as you are seated away, almost in your own room, making it easy to converse with your party.

Our server was exceptional she was friendly and the perfect amount of attentive to my mother's and I visit. We could not stop commenting on the food it was sooooo good! My mom loved the hot sauce so much they gave her a small container extra to take home. Will absolutely be taking my friends back there. This place is fantastic!!!

Definitely a must try place. Tucked away, this place does not make you feel like you are in Calgary. We tried to sample as much as we can and glad we did. Everything was cooked very well Service was a bit slow

It was my fiancé’s bday and we had a great time eating at this place. I thought it was going to be a bigger place but fair enough once you are comfortable you will forget about the space and focus on the service and the food. Met all our expectations and I am going to be back soon. The food is incredible and the waitress explained everything related to the food culture and its history. Recommend 100% the seafood.

For ambience there's no place better - the restaurant is cozy and warm and the atmosphere is great. The service was great and the staff were friendly and efficient. I went with a larger group and three of us were extremely disappointed with the quality of beef we were served. It was over priced, tough, over cooked and not seasoned. Unfortunately the value isn't there for what you get as far as the beef is concerned. The actual dishes themselves were tasty, however not worth the price they charge for them.

This is such a gem! The owner greets you and makes you feel so welcome. The decor is exotic and beautiful. Lots of small spaces curtained off in flowing fabrics. Candles everywhere. The food is incredible tagines and couscous in various versions that can be vegetarian or with lamb or chicken. They offer my favourite - Bistella - chicken with a dusting of icing sugar - delectable. A decent wine selection available. Love this place.

This restaurant is great! The decor is stunning I just want to sit there for hours and feel like I’m in Morocco even for awhile. I have my favourites. The Coucous Khoudra being one of them. I don’t eat lamb but I even like their lamb. It’s so tender and nicely spiced. I found one of my favourite wines there even recently. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Casbah and I believe it can satisfy all pallets.

Very unique, hidden gem to take guests. Nothing like it anywhere in Calgary.
We had Couscous with Lamb Medallions and they were so tender and perfect !
Looking forward to coming back again.

Amazing food! Our server was great, answered all our questions about the menu and when I told her it was my boyfriends and my first time checking the place out she made it an unforgettable experience. The atmosphere was like nothing I've been to before. Made us feel like we were on a holiday away from the city. Definitely recommend but I'd plan for a date night for two people to be roughly $100. So worth it though!!

My wife and I took some friends to the Casbah for their first time. They couldn’t believe how good it was . Great food and service . The Casbah has a warm and intimate Moroccan decor that never disappoints. A must do for anyone that is tired of regular restaurant fare.

I have been to Casbah a number of times over the years. It never fails to disappoint. The helpful service and exceptional food keep me coming back. With all the super loud venues in Calgary, Casbah is a welcome respite where one can actually here dinner companions.
