It’s opposite La Decouverte, which is a great spot for lunch, serving daily specials of homemade dishes of locally-sourced ingredients.
Pause for a coffee….. at Ginger, run by an Argentinian couple and serving fresh juices, smoothies and salads (Rue Ibn Rochd in the Kasbah).
For something a bit more “local”, check out chez Bachir on the main square – his is the café nestled in against the wall and enclosed by a series of awnings. If mint tea isn’t your thing, order a nouss nouss (literally, half-half espresso and milk).
My favourite is Café Tamouziga. The pizzas are great and the sunloungers are free.
If you still have the energy, it’s worth the walk on into the village of Diabat: not to visit the alleged pausing point of Jimi Hendrix but rather the beautiful ruins of the Sultan’s Palace, slowly being reclaimed by the dunes. It’s a fabulous setting for sunset, but you’ll need a torch to find the road again and you might not easily get a taxi back into town.
If you fancy treating your other half to a romantic getaway, check out the roof-top Suite Chbanate at Riad Chbanate with nigh-on 360° views, including from the bath!
