We came here last night. We had the crevettes pil pil and garlic calamari. We then had couscous royale (large portion) followed by crepe and fruit salad with half bottle of decent wine. Bill was 400D. Ambience very pleasant, service efficient and friendly. Music varied. Finally and most importantly food delicious.

We ate here 3 times. The food is delicious and tasty. The staff is friendly and welcoming and the restaurant has a nice ambiance. Calamari and the sole frite was amazing. The tajines are a good pick too.

Delightfully friendly staff with top restaurant quality food. The stuffed calamari tangine was incredible. Incredibly priced for the quality food. If you're going to Essaouira, make sure you have dinner here!

Amazing food (especially the pigeon pastilla and the harira), super nice service, very affordable. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

Having eaten my way through large chunks of the menu I struggle to choose a favourite. There is a large choice of delicious vegetarian dishes. Everything is exquisitely seasoned. The staff are charming and attentive. This restaurant is top of my list for the next trip.

A splendid evening, with great food and a very kind manager. It was a pleasure running into this small alley and finding M'riste Jouhar.

This is my first restaurant review on Trip Advisor and unfortunately not a positive one. My partner and I visited this restaurant based on other people's recommendations on Trip Advisor website. We arrived at 10 o'clock, and our waiter gave the impression that the kitchen was closing or that certain dishes weren't available. It wasn't very clear what he was... More
