Had pre-dinner drinks on the terrace watching the sun set over the Atlantic. As it got chilly they offered a warm poncho. Great service. Had dinner in the restaurant. Very pleased with the service and entertainment.

If you've been having withdrawals and desperate for a wine this is a pleasant venue to chill on the rooftop patios and enjoy a glass of reasonable Moroccon wine while watching the sun set. You cannot dine upstairs but you can take your bottle downstairs to the restaurant. Food average. Our lamb tagine was not very tender but the calamari... More

A wonderful cafe hidden out of the way- a must if you are visiting Essaouria. Really lovely food, great service- we've been twice and would go back again and again.

Not sure if it was here or somewhere else, but within 24 hours of drinking cocktails here - I forgot the no-ice rule, I had raging D&V, when I got home, went to Dr's and discovered I had a serious campilabacta infection. Cocktails were overpriced, good view, good atmosphere, took a while to get served, pay for ghoing where it... More

A wonderful restaurant, with beautiful food and lovely staff. We have eaten here many times and never been disappointed. Sometimes they have their resident magician go round the tables and perform magic tricks. Lovely cocktail bar on the roof terrace where they do live music gigs under the stars

In a town where fruit juice squeezed freshly on all the street corners and costs 4-6 dirham- and tastes amazing .. To come to a rooftop terrace bar and pay 30-40 dirham for juice out of a bottle that tastes very average- is the epitome of getting ripped off. It's a great spot for sundowners and there is live music... More

Good food and a view that's hard to beat. The crowd was almost all European on the two nights I went (they have a decent local wine, Medallion and nice desserts). Seafood was a real winner each time, the duck was just good and lamb was tasty. They have a fully stocked bar and it's a nice scene when you... More

The restaurant is beautiful, the staff are pleasant, the food is good and the view is great. However, if you want to experience Morocco and it's people this is not the place for you. It's filled with tourists, with the food and music targeted to foreigners. Additionally, traditional Moroccan food is charged at a premium.

It's one of the in places in Essaouira, a place to see and be seen. But apart from that it's also a fun place to have dinner or just drinks with friends. The food is good and the service very friendly. And they have life bands at play. There is also a bar and lounge area ist you just want... More
