Welcome! Sit back, relax and prepare for an authentic Moroccan dining experience. Once you step inside, you will feel as if you have been transported to an oasis of culture, color and taste. Enjoy live belly dancing while being catered to by the warm, attentive staff. Choose from a delightful array of traditional entrees such as chicken, lamb, couscous and vegetarian dishes, all served in the traditional Moroccan style. Opened in 1978, El Morocco has established itself as a fun, friendly restaurant with "the best Moroccan food around". The owner, Fadil Shahin, comes from a family with many musical talents. You might find him playing the oud and singing traditional Arabic songs or drumming his dumbek. His nephews own Marrakech in San Francisco, where they perform regularly as well. El Morocco is excellent for birthday parties, social events, anniversaries, special occasions, rehearsal dinners, or wedding receptions. El Morocco has belly dancing Tuesday through Sunday featuring the best performers in the region! Enjoy a royal feast as you are entertained by the mesmerizing dancing. Fridays and Saturdays feature three dance shows.

El Morocco is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 398.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service, good food, and entertaining dancers! We were treated like we were family in the owners home. I would recommend coming with at least 5-6 people. Fun and unique experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It was a quiet, rainy night so there were not a lot of people there. It gives one the feeling of eating inside a tent. When we came in the belly dancer was performing. I wish I knew her name. She was wonderful, graceful, and so friendly. She went from dining group to dining group getting people to dance with her. Looks easy, Really hard to move as she did. The food was good and fit the Moroccan feeling. The service was very good and it helped to have the food explained to us. All in all, a very pleasant night in the middle of the week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The 6 of us had a leisurely meal of many courses. We selected a variety of entrees as the food is served family style so we all have a variety to enjoy. My favorite was the lamb with prunes - although the hare and the chicken tangine were very close runners-up. Others in our group had different favorites and agreed that all were tasty. We also enjoyed the belly dancers and music. And the dancers were great in getting the diners involved.
