Much the most expensive meal we had but much the best. A proper chef creating a few lovely dishes. It was hard to choose but I expect all were gorgeous. My fiends fish was large, perfectly cooked and looked a picture, my lamb tagine was less dramatic but several notches above the normal fare. Puddings were beautiful and superb. Funky... More

Loved the lamb and apricot targine and the mint gnocchi! It feels like your dining in someone's extraordinary house the way they seat you all privately in little alcoves and rooms. LOVED this place!

The food was amazing, the decor was fun, and the owner was very nice and friendly. We all got the beef, and we all loved it. The desserts were scrumptious, and we would recoomend this to anyone who travels to Essaouira.

The fish of the day was John Dory, extremely fresh and tastefully prepared. There was an English menu that listed about 4 starters, 5 entrees, and 4 desserts.The restaurant consists... More

What a gem! Of the various restaurants we chanced upon in Essaouira Elizir ranks high and above the rest as the best eatery in town. Tucked away in a little side street on the first floor of a nondescript tenement. On entering you are transported to another age of 1970's kitsch with vinyl records on the walls, space age televisions... More

For a restaurant with very quickly decor I was surprised at how good the food was! A limited menu of 4 dishes for the entrée and 5 for mains to choose from but Im sure everyone can find something to delight, including vegetarians! If you're a wine snob though you might be disappointed because there's no wine list, just red... More
