Well worth a visit

A little gem of a restaurant serving French Moroccan that deserved more custom on the night we visited. The food was very good, reasonably priced and served with attention. It was a shame that we were the only ones dining there that night but well worth a visit if only to look at the interesting... read more

A little gem of a restaurant serving French Moroccan that deserved more custom on the night we visited. The food was very good, reasonably priced and served with attention. It was a shame that we were the only ones dining there that night but well worth a visit if only to look at the interesting photos adorning the walls!

I'd seen good reviews for this restaurant so decided to visit one night, looking at the menu outside I wasn't sure as the prices seemed a little steep but since we were on holiday I thought we could treat ourselves. Inside is cool, relaxed and elegant, there were several other people dining when we arrived but were shown to a... More

Essaouira has a fantastic range of restaurants … more tagines and couscous than you can shake a stick at. Much of the traditional Moroccan fare is quite standard (though good) and many of the better restaurants are quite influenced by other cuisines. Which is all a very good reason to visit Essaouira. d'Orient et d'Ailleurs pitches perfectly at the quality... More

My friend and I pretty much stumbled across this lovely restaurant, we were hungry and indecisive, but there was something about it when we looked and just so so glad that we gave it a go - because it was the best food we had in Essaouira and far better than the modest price we paid would suggest. Eat there.... More

tried this by chance as our first choice was closed and we were so glad we did. We had the set menu of 3 courses which was reasonably priced, so we expected average food - but no! This was far above average, from the amuse bouche to the dessert. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

We were a group of friends and someone recommended we eat there and we were so glad we did. The food was really good, I had the prix fixe which was quite good at a really good price. The decor is simple and elegant, great pictures taken by the owner I believe. Overall a very nice experience

Very very good food. Traditional moroccan food with a choice of moroccan wine and delicious starters and desserts. I can recommend the kafta and tajine.

Like its sister restaurant (La Cle de Voute) this restaurant was a delight. Excellent food (mix of Moroccan and European), lovely surroundings, smiling staff and a good wine list. We would go back again if we return to Essaouira.

I booked this restaurant having seen the reviews on tripadvisor. The booking process via email was easy and efficient. The food was good and the prices reasonable but unfortunately when we went there were not many people in the restaurant and with the typically low lighting made it look quite dark and gloomy. The service was very good, the starters... More

Having been to Le Patio and being taken aback by the prices, Restaurant d'Ailleurs came as a very pleasant surprise. I couldn't resist trying the pan fried Foie Gras but was not expecting much. It was nothing short of superb to match the best you could hope for in a top French restaurant. Similarly the seafood gratin. Amazing quality. My... More
