Delicious and fresh home-cooked Moroccan food

Ramsess is surely the best restaurant in Essaouira! The food is perfectly freshly made, and always delicious! This time I also attended the cooking class, and learnt how to make the special bread if the house, and the selection of Moroccan cooked salads. I totally recommend that you give this a go!

We ate here our first night in Essaouira and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere. Our waitress was French and lovely and helpful. There was a band playing what I would think was modern Moroccan music and they were very good. The food was also good and wine was able to be ordered. I would certainly recommend this restaurant

Love Ramsess! A hidden gem. Would recommend the Ramsess Salad to start and the Meatball Tagine for main. Lovely staff make you feel at home.

Nice family owned and run restaurant. They speak English, which certainly helps when ordering. They offer a number of dishes I've not seen anywhere else, and all were delicious! It's more like eating in someone's living room than in a restaurant. We enjoyed the experience!

A delightful restaurant in the heart of the Medina. This small restaurant serves a varied selection of Moroccan dishes. The service is rather slow, but well worth the wait. You can enjoy a drink while you wait and enjoy listening to the musician as he plays and sings with an extraordinary voice. The food was delicious and much to our... More

A tiny little restaurant- very Moroccan in decor and a sweet little place. Food was really nice and wine was reasonably priced although a limited selection. Food was fresh and seasoned to perfection. There was a lovely young man playing a strange instrument and singing. When we first got there we were the only people in and it was a... More
