Taverne Du Dauphine, Casablanca

Fronting the Atlantic Ocean, Casablanca is naturally one of Morocco's cities where seafood shines the brightest. Taverne Du Dauphine ranks among the most-respected seafood specialists, reputedly run by the same family since the 1950s, promising highlights from Casablanca and beyond, including Moroccan oysters cultivated in the Western Sahara desert town of Dakhla (!), fresh umbrina fish from the local market, and deep-sea carabineros cardinal prawns, fleshy and flavour-packed.
