My husband and I had dinner here last night, and we both thoroughly enjoyed our food and the service. This is a really special place - clean and welcoming. The owners welcome you, explain everything well, food is fresh. You can see the kitchen so you know the food is prepared well. I had the eggplant gratin and my husband... More

We chose this restaurant after reading other reviews and it was an excellent choice. We were greeted by the french owners who took time to explain the menu in detail and specials which were on for that day. The food arrived and was tasty and very delicious - my husband highly recommends the crumble for dessert! The family on the... More

Run by a very committed and welcoming pair, who explained everything on the menu clearly, lovingly and in a delightful accent. The pastille for main course was to die for. Desserts not quite so outstanding but still good. Highly recommended!

Welcoming family-run restaurant, cosy, easy to find and delicious food! We felt at ease and was one of the best meals we had in Morocco! Would thoroughly recommend it to anyone visiting Essaouira

Till so far, thuis was the best place to eat in Morocco. The owners were very friendly. We had the puff pastries to start with, very well seasoned. The fish from the maincourse tasted very fresh. Also the cakes For desert were delicious.

Delicious food, friendly people, cosy restaurant! Decouvert is a small restaurant runned by a french couple. I think the food was maroccon food made by a french cook which is an amazing combination. You can sit inside our on a small terrace.

We ate here with our three children and we really appreciated it. There was a warm welcome from Edouard and Frederique (We had taken an Eco-tour with Edouard earlier in the week). One of the things we appreciated was the explanation of the different foods on the menu, and the cultural relevance of different dishes. So we actually learned something... More

Had lunch here - Moroccan Specialities and Monkfish, both were good. A small restaurant but with very friendly staff. Food was good and plentiful. Definitely worth a visit. Also visited a small jewellery/carpet/odds&sods shop at the end of this small road on opposite side to Decouverte with avery friendly owner and interesting Berber items.

We actually ate here two of the nights that we were in Essaouira since we enjoyed the food and the experience. The first night we sat outside since all of the inside tables were booked. My boyfriend likes the cold and I had a sweater so it was fine but the couple sitting next to us borrowed ponchos in order... More

Came to the restaurant to book a walking tour (see Ecotourisme et Randonees), and decided to stay for the Royal Couscous with camel meat which is only served on Monday. Reservations are essential as there is only seating for 18 inside and 6-8 outside. As with most restaurants in the Medina, it opens at 6.30-7pm. Food (Moroccan cuisine) is fresh,... More
