Where to Eat in Oualidia, Morocco

restaurant

Ostréa II

This unassuming restaurant is attached to the longest-running oyster farm in Oualidia, which has been luring in-the-know foodies since 1947. It is also one of the best spots to catch a sunset. As the sky bruises lilac and purple, slurp huge, succulent huîtres, washed down with a glass of crisp Moroccan white. The molluscs also come cooked every which way, from au gratin to tureen (soup) or a la ciboulette. If you've had your fill of oysters, opt for the spaghetti aux fruits de mer (with seafood) or the locally caught filet de sole drizzled in a tangy orange sauce.

restaurant

L’Araignée Gourmande

Full-length windows frame views of the lagoon and, beyond, the Atlantic Ocean here. The decor is simple - mismatched wooden chairs, white linen, tiled floors - but the food is excellent. Standouts include the lobster or crevettes, although the fruits de mer platter offers both these and more (think: oysters, sea urchin and spider crab). Ask after the catch of the day, which could be bass or bream, depending on the season. Expect large plates and low prices.
