Restaurant Casa Aladdin

First up on where to eat in Chefchaouen, we have Restaurant Casa Aladdin. Located at the Northeast end of the main square, you’ll find this multi-story restaurant that serves up amazing Moroccan dishes.

The inside of Casa Aladdin is decked out in Arabian décor. While you may want to sit inside, don’t! The views from their rooftop terrace are beautiful!

Once at the top, you’ll have the main square of Chefchaouen’s Medina in front of you (where you can hear live music) and the blue cities stacked houses behind you.

Restaurant Bab Ssour

Located not too far away from Restaurant Casa Aladdin, you’ll find Restaurant Bab Ssour.

Restaurant Bab Ssour is tucked away, down a side alley, leaving it to be not as crowded as the restaurants you’ll walk past in the main square.

This was our favorite restaurant in Chefchaouen and it should not be missed by you.

Like Restaurant Casa Aladdin, Restaurant Bab Ssour is a several-story café that boasts unbelievable views of Chefchaouen from its terrace balcony. Try and do your best to time your meal close to sunset and the views are even better then!

Make sure to sit at the very top and enjoy the views of the blue city. The food is unbelievable and if you’re with a group, get things to share!

When: Dinner | Order: Goat cheese, tajine, and lentils | Price: $ – $$

TIP: Restaurant Beldi Bab Ssour also promotes a cooking class. While we did not get the chance to take it, it could be something you look into during your time at Chefchaouen.

Mester Juices at Veranda Cafe & Restaurant

How does a Chefchaouen rooftop cafe with fresh juice and scoops of ice cream sound to you? Amazing? Yeah, that’s what we thought too!

Mester Juices is located on the Northeastern side of the main square of Chefchaouen tucked behind the main café fronts. You’ll have to merge off the main drag and head down a small street to find it.

We actually stumbled upon Mester Juices by happenstance and what a treat it was!

Plan to head up to their rooftop, order something sweet, and take in the wonderful cityscape as the sun’s last light illuminates the sky.

When: Post-Dinner | Order: Mint tea, juice, or ice cream | Price: $

Chefchaouen Main Square

Now, I know we said that rooftops should be part of your restaurant list when visiting Chefchaouen. However, if you want something easy and to be in the hustle and bustle of the town, the main square of the Chefchaouen Medina is perfect for you.

There are handfuls of cafés that line the square, all offering delicious meals. Our restaurant suggestion for you is either Café Restaurant Marisco Twins, BILMOS, or Good Ben Jaamae. All of which is right in the heart of the main square of Chefchaouen.

However, there are LOADS of cafes in the main square so you can always opt to head to the main square, pick a cafe that speaks to you and enjoy.
