Although I have lived in essaouira for almost 12 years have never tried this restaurant. But took 2 friends there tonight (who used to live here but had also never tried it ) and we were all delighted with the quality of the food and the service. We all tried something different (fillet steak, monkfish, seafood gratin) and everything was... More

A surprise gem found down a backstreet in the medina. While we did look on tripadvisor to find this restaurant, it took us a good 15 minutes to track it down, but it is definitely worth finding. The inside is very authentic and cosy. The food was easily the best we had throughout our holiday in Essaouira, especially at such... More

Fantastic Moroccan food in a very comfortable, but yet very romantic and unpretentious restaurant. Perfect ambience, which made me feel relaxed and ready to enjoy the evening of the best Essaouirra has to offer. Muhammed, the waiter-maitre'd-host was extremely friendly and very professional. I loved the fact that we walked past the kitchen on the way in, and you can... More

This was our best meal in Essaouira, a very good chef and delicious dinner with 3 courses for just over 200 dirham each. We had a huge avocado salad to start and lovely fresh fish and kefta, finishing with a magnificent chocolate fondant. A quiet romantic atmosphere just off a side street from the Dar Skala.

The food served is easily the best we've had in Morocco. We had the monkfish and it was superb, as was the chocolate fondante we had for dessert. The presentation and service puts it way ahead of other restaurants. The atmosphere is quiet and subdued, making it a relaxing and enjoyable experience. They had a small, but good selection of...

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local after a day lazing on the beach, and it turned out to be one of the best restaurants in Essaouira . The grilled red snapper was lovely, not a bone in sight and the fish was large and meaty, the veg was great and my partner had the lamb tagine which... More

Stumbled across this lovely little restaurant looking for something a bit different. Service was good and food delicious, a nice change from the standard cous cous/tagine menus found everywhere else in the medina. Had a nice half bottle of Moroccan wine too!
