Jour et Nuit is a restaurant on the beach in Agadir, located close to Bijaouane Square. In fact there are two restaurants of the same name, one on either side of the square. The Jour et Nuit has a first floor dining room, offering good sea views. We went during Ramadan, and it was a bit strange, as Moroccans come to the cafe to socialise, talk, sit and read the paper, but they don't eat or drink. At night it fills up, and people stay eating and playing cards until 4 o'clock in the morning, when the daily fast begins again. The restaurant has good prices, you can try grilled fish for 6 euros, with bread and salad.
Le Dome is a large beachfront complex that hosts a tea room, bakery, a restaurant, a nightclub, and rentable party rooms. The restaurant is cozy, has a terrace and an indoor room from which you can watch very beautiful sunsets. It's a little more luxurious than other restaurants with white tablecloths and fine china, but it isn't too expensive. The bakery is open for the day, and you can sample some of their delicacies in the restaurant, or sit in the tea room for a snack. To end the evening you can go to the club with an oriental atmosphere, serving drinks but also some small snacks. Some nights there are shows with dinner included.
Ibtissam is a neighborhood restaurant in the area of Talborjt Nouveau. It's in a nice pedestrian plaza, with a good sized balcony. It is full of tourists at lunchtime, with the locals coming later for tea and something to eat. The full menu costs 45 dirhams, or 4 euros, and includes a starter (a salad or soup) and a second course (Moroccan tagine with fish, lamb or chicken). There's also ground beef tagine with eggs that is also good. For dessert they offer fruit salad and local pastries. There are some European-style dishes if you're sick of Moroccan food, like spaghetti, burgers, and sandwiches. But these dishes always disappoint me - they're never as good as I'd like!
The restaurant is in the gardens of the same name, in the centre of Agadir. It is named after the Portuguese town of Olhao, which has been twinned with Agadir since the 1960's. The garden is a beautiful place, and the restaurant is a wonderful choice for a meal, because there's plenty shade. You can eat outside under the big trees, without worrying about the sun. There's a play area for children. Prices are a little higher than in the centre, but not as high as the restaurants by the beach. You can eat a full meal for 12 euros. The place is open at night only on special occasions.
This restaurant is in the Talborjt Nouveau area, in a pedestrian plaza that's very lively by night. There aren't big tourist parties - you'll find those on the beach - but it's a local neighbourhood with Moroccan inhabitants. The menu has been translated into several languages, and as well as the typical dishes of couscous and tagine, there's a set menu for 4 euros. It includes a salad or soup, plus a second course of grilled chicken, pasta, couscous or vegetable tagine. For dessert, there's yogurt or fruit, and mint tea. They are friendly and the food comes quickly.
Lauberge is one of the few hotels in the village of Taghazout, a fishing village located 15km from the centre of Agadir. You can get to Taghazout on bus 12 or 14, or take a collective taxi. I liked the people here, and if you're staying a few days in Agadir, this is a much more pleasant place to go and get away from the city. The name means hostel in French. There's a restaurant downstairs or a terrace upstairs to eat. The rooms are nice and clean, and there's a common room for guests. Surfers often stay here.
