Great views!

Great place for a sunny lunch & rose wine! Menu was quite varied & there's a bar. Lots of terraces & 2 flights of stairs up from the street.

We had lunch here twice during our stay in Essaouira. Service was first class, food was good. An errant seagull took a dislike to my partner and deposited a little offering on her left shoulder. The staff leapt into action immediately with flannels and soapy water to repair the damage. It provoked much laughter and merriment on both sides. A... More

Reminds me of the hype of the original hard rock cafe in park lane. On the roof is a live band at night. Below is the restaurant. Tagine lamb was ok. A hock rather than cut pieces. The bar b cue rack of lamb caused some problem when some of the ribs turned out to be just that without the... More

Came here for lunch on a hot sunny day in March. Worth it for the fantastic views of the medieval walled harbour and bustling port. Sat high above it all, looking over the sea on a terrace which had a kinda grecian feel to it (blue and white painted wood) and ate a nice meal (mains 70-150dhms) washed down with... More

Fantastic location overlooking the main square – great for watching the world go by with distant views of the harbour. Food choice quite wide (I had magret of duck which cost 130 Dhms) not just the usual tagines and couscous and they serve wine. Staff friendly and attentive and pricing reasonable.

Nice stop to relax and have a beer or a glass of wine. Enjoy the view of the port which is extraordinary. If the wind gives you a chill (We were there in early March.), they will offer you a nice poncho to keep you warm. Enjoy.

Really nice atmosphere, service and food. Located in the medina, but be sure to look up for the sign- the entrance is not in the large square, so it could be easy to miss.

Upbeat, lively rooftop bar, beautifully lit at night. Licensed (unlike many cafes locally) so good for pre- or post-dinner drinks. Smart, efficient service.
