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.

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.

Good food, great atmosphere and service. It was our 33rd wedding anniversary and our table was quiet and secluded, perfect for the occasion. It was our first time there and we will be returning soon.

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.

Had a lovely experience here, food and atmosphere is fantastic and feeds all the senses.
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!!

Loved the decor! It was like stepping into Morroco. Very cozy yet exotic. Food was superb, but on the pricey side, especially the appetizers, 2 pieces for $12.

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.

The place was so cute with great decor and great staff. They washed our hands with warm rose water and were very attentive to our orders. The food was good but not worth the money., it was expensive for what it was.

My husband and I honeymooned in Morocco so I was excited to try out this restaurant. Bad idea. Our meal felt rushed, the gentleman who seated us was extremely rude and arrogant, very condescending in his demeanour. It was hard to speak to him because he was always rushing by, almost as though he did not want to be bothered by customers. We are not returning, ever. Food was just OK, we have had better, but the main reason we are not returning is because we want to dine where our business is appreciated. I am not one to give negative reviews lightly, but feel the experience was bad enough to warrant sharing our disappointment.
