meticulously managed,impeccably lit and decorated,recent full renovation has brought it to another level,beyond what we imagined. The steak,seafood and daily menu surprises set this restaurant apart. An old Essaouira staple with a wonderful reputation continue to make d'Orient et d'Ailleurs one of our first choices whenever we are oit for a special evening in Essaouira.

We had been to this restaurant and enjoyed our dinner there and it was on our list for a return visit. This restaurant is owned by a Frenchman, but the kitchen staff are Moroccan women. We shared a chicken, almond and cinnamon pastille starter which was very tasty. I had a hunk of steak which was tender. Joan had calamari... More

Calling in by chance, we had an excellent meal in delightful surroundings. Service was swift and friendly. It rates for us as one of the best we visited over a two week holiday in Essaouira. Worth booking in advance as it is quite small. Alcohol is available by the bottle or by the glass.

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.
