Spent 2 nights here during my recent short break - the atmosphere (live music in the evenings) was great and the waiters were very friendly - even offering blankets after sunset as the temperatures started to fall away. They were one of the only places in the Medina that was serving alcohol (currently it is Ramadan which might be skewing... More

Seated high above the crowds with a wonderful view of the harbour. You can't get any fresher seafood unless it is still swimming. Straight off the boats as they arrive back from their trips. Good service and extremely reasonable prices.

Popped in here for a drink before dinner elsewhere. Went to the very top roof terrace which had fab views over the fishing port. We only stayed for one quick drink as it was very chilly and windy up there and neither of us had jackets or cardigans. A band was just setting up so can imagine it is quite... More

With great views from the roof top of the town and atlantic this is a wonderful place for lunch. We were there with two small children and the atmosphere is relaxed with very friendly staff and good food to add. Very good seafood, freshly caught that day, and caters well to children.

Despite my initial hesitation that this may be something of a tourist trap, I came, I came again and I loved it. Perfect location between the medina and the port, sea views, great vibe (hate that word but what the hell!), super friendly and accommodating staff, good (reasonably priced) drinks and the best tagine I've ever had (though menu not...

This restaurant is very good if you are looking for somewhere with a great atmosphere and good music. It is a series of rooftop terraces overlooking the harbour - great views but can be a little chilly so bring a wrap/jacket. The food and service were very good and wine was reasonably priced compared to other restaurants. There was also... More

Make this one of the first restaurants that you visit in Essaouira because you will want to come back. The live bands give it a really great atmosphere, it has a good bar and excellent food - the views especially at sunset are the icing on the cake!

Went for dinner and drinks, Food was good, live music gave a great vibe, trendy setting and a great view across town. Sunset was fantastic from the roof terrace, great wine and cocktail venue. A nice touch was when they came round with traditional ponchos when it got a little chilly in the evening.

As mentioned by others, the views from the terraces are breathtaking and the food is pretty good too. We visited in the day and were given a sun hat to keep out the strong rays - a nice touch in a lovely restaurant.
