Agadir's restaurant scene is alive and well despite the influx and attraction of all-inclusive resorts. The three areas for dining, as with most things in Agadir, are the city center, the beach promenade, and south of the city near the beachfront resorts. Although there are plenty of restaurants to choose from, the range of cuisine is limited to European -- with one very notable British exception -- and Moroccan, reflecting the nationalities of the majority of visitors to Agadir. Dining in Agadir generally lacks the Asian ambience prevalent in Marrakech or the strong traditional atmosphere of many restaurants in Fes, but this young city has never been a follower and can be looked upon as refreshing rather than lacking.

All of the recommended restaurants listed in this guide are easy to locate and will perhaps require transport if you are staying at one of the beachfront resorts.

For those craving their burgers and fries, there is a McDonald's on boulevard Mohammed V, 500m (1/3 mile) northwest from the gardens of the Palais Royale. It's open Sunday to Thursday from 10am to midnight, and Friday and Saturday from 10am to 1am. There's both indoor and outdoor seating, and a fun play area for the kiddies. There's another smaller McDonald's on the beachfront place Bijaouane that's open the same hours.

No matter where you dine, finish your evening with a stroll along the beach promenade, perhaps partaking in an ice cream or mint tea at one of the many restaurants and cafes running along its length.
