We ate here on our last night and were greeted by the friendly staff and musicians who played and sang some wonderful music while we ate. Great home cooked Moroccan food and good wine list. Music and decor are traditional and the place has a cosy and warm atmosphere. Will definitely visit again!

Cozy,small marocian restaurant, which is open daily till 12pm, serves alcohol and even has big shisha. I had lamb tajine with vegetables and cuscus. Portions are more than enough! Just delicious food. Service is great; friendly and cute waitress. Every evening from around 9pm to 11pm. You can hear live African blues and jazz. I recommend this place for everyone... More

We came accross this restaurant by accident, as nearby recommanded restaurants were already full. Such a nice surprise ! Lovely service with great family fish recipes (we had a perfect shark tajine and grilled squids with shrimps), a candles-cosy atmosphere and an outstanding live music band playing gnaoua songs among others to add this final key touch to what turned...

My wife and I visited Restaurant Ramsess because from the outside it looks interesting. It is tucked into a busy market street and had a "bodega" feel. Just like the decor, the people are warm and friendly. Also,if you're looking for wine with the meal---not easy in Essaouira---here's your spot !

On a day trip to Essaaouira we had previously made a choice of restaurant using trip advisor. Ramsess is not impressive from the exterior - don't be put off. Inside is charming, authentic and cosy. The restaurant is family run and staff are very friendly and welcoming. We were particularly impressed by Zineb and left with an impression of having... More

Had an excellent meal here on our first night in Essaouira, the place has a very relaxed atmosphere but they are passionate about their food. We probably went a bit over board in what we ordered but you would be able to have an excellent meal for about 120dh each. Definitely recommend

After a nearby restaurant search on t/a this came up with a decent ranking so we decided to try it. Despite the signage saying there was live music, we were sadly disappointed when none eventuated throughout the course of our meal. The service was very slow We were placed in the view of the entrance, I'd imagine it was to... More

This is one of those places you feel welcome and not only for your money. The women of this restaurant try to make you at home. With al the love and care they can offer. They don' t want tips only a good review on tripadvisor. And then only when you mean it. Well I really mean it when I... More

When staying in Essaouira we by fortune end up in this lovely restaurant. After being greeted at the entrance we were shown to a quiet and cosy table. While relaxing, the drinks we ordered where served and given all time to pick and order our diner. Especially the explanation about the food and ingredients used for it was a nice... More
