Definitely the best restaurant we went to in Essaouira, with excellent food and exquisite wine. The restaurant is run by the French husband and wife who also run La Cle de Voute. The service was very good.

Really outsider in comparison with Elizir, Triskala cafe and Caravan cafe. Food was ok, but I'm not sure that this is a place you want to visit in a company of friends. They tried to create a romantic atmosphere but failed.

We had high expectations of this Franco-Moroccan restaurant, given its no2 ranking on T/A. After an afternoon of exploring the mdina and its ramparts we were the first customers to arrive at opening time, although only two of its 9 or 10 tables were not already reserved. The menu is not extensive but is sufficiently varied to have something for... More

There is not a single issue against 5 points! On the contrary - this is the perfect place to dine. Situated in the old center of the town, a nice stroll through cobblestoned alleys from the maingate away, it has all what you might be looking for: Excellent food and wine reasonably priced, cosy interior and a sympathetic patron fluent...

We loved it. The ambience is warm and relaxing (unusually good choice of music), the food was excellent and the service helpful and unobtrusive. The gilt-tipped sea bream with a rosemary and lemon sauce was a particular hit. The wine choice is good (although the "gris" cinsault was a tad tart and one-dimensional, that was our choice and no disgrace... More

You will see here many favourable reviews for this restaurant; and I will also say that the positives you have seen are accurate (nice interior, good food choices of both French / Moroccan favourites etc.). This is without doubt a good restaurant and I would certainly return. To try and find something helpful I have added the following comments: 1)... More

We ate here on the last night of our trip - it was recommended by our hotel and (importantly for us!) sells wine. The place is quite small and very intimate - it was full when we arrived but we didn't feel our privacy was encroached at all. The decor is nice and the lighting is subtle - the ambience... More

Came to this place guided by good reviews, only to be disappointed. My fish was far overcooked, as well as the duck breast ordered by my friend. Inability to master the basic cooking techniques is therefore the reason for poor rating.

We took our baby for dinner and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We had a delicious avocado salad and the vegetable tagine & filet minion for main. All were excellent! Our waiter was very attentive and helpful. One of our best dinners in Morocco!
