La Sqaia, located along the coast in the center of Casablanca, Morocco, in an old fortress, serves traditional Moroccan cuisine where tajines (North African stews), teas and breakfast/lunch are the specialties.  It is located in an 18th century fortress near the edge of the old walled city.  La Sqaia exudes tons of local atmosphere, highlighted by nice gardens and a courtyard.  Our dinner with friends was relaxing, away from the buzz of the central city.
