On a organised tour of Morocco, we had plenty of time to explore restaurants and was recommended this place. This was one of two of our best meals in Morocco. (The other place was Marrakech Restaurant in Fes). I chose the "taste of everything" platter and it consisted of a standout pastilla (pastry) containing chicken, nuts, cinnamon, saffron wrapped in...

We've been to this place 2 times when in Essaouira and our impression is slightly different. Our first dinner was great - welcoming, friendly and attentive staff, cozy outdoor seating, delicious dishes for a reasonable price. We've returned in a few days for a lunch as we've really liked this place, and on this 2nd visit things seemed a bit... More

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!

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
