Nice atmosphere but it is overrated. Our guide took us there and we had bass with garlic sauce and lentil soup. The salad was good, the bean soup was less salty and very good . The prices are very high though.

This is tourist style restaurant and a tad overrated. The food was fair. The service was acceptable. We had a group of 14. The fish seemed to be the winner on this day.

a little bit touristic; guess only tourists eat there; but the service was very friendly and professional. The food was better than expected and for once it was good to have a non-tortillas dinner.

If you are looking for pasta this is it. I order Fettuccine Alfredo and really enjoyed it. So you won't regret eating here.

this was a disappointment. Elegant atmosphere, so-so food. Overpriced, did not live up to expectation. Much prefer Guayjimbo restaurant for dinner, Chinita was excellent for lunch and dinner, best Chinese food I've had in a long time, even in New York City. Fresh ingredients, cooked to order. Also The Deli for breakfast, outstanding. I'm two locations.

We were 4 people, one Spanish speaking. Service was slow, One couple did not receive the first dish, I received an over done steak. And more. In short, bad experience.

Decent food, good service was but overpriced. Those in our group who ordered fish or pasta were more satisfied than those who ordered beef (beef was a bit tough) Regardless, we enjoyed our experience at casablanca.

We walked by several times and Casablanca was always full. Finally we decided to try it and we were very happy. Large portions, happy servers who really pay attention to their tables. The food is great. Loved the chicken plates but the sandwiches were great too. Definatley we will return

We enjoyed the food very much. The shrimp and fish dishes we tried were both very good. Prices are decent value for Panajachel. Service was friendly. We would recommend this to others and we will return one day.

Stop! Find some other place. Poor service. Pasta under cooked. Sauces below any reasonable standard. Pay extra for bread. With a name like Casablanca, they should stick to Moroccan foods like humus and pita bread. Find some other place.
