We were reluctant to try this restuarant but after our host and many other recommended it and we kept having bad dining experiences we thought we'd just go for it. We were not disapointed, immediately you walk in to a 60's 70s apartment with many things to look out. We ordered the pear tagine and balsamic beef and they were... More

We had heard of this place before we arrived I Essaouira. We considered it worth trying out and we were not disappointed. It's thoroughly charming, great but relaxed service. It's not overly pretentious or chic but stylish with a sincere Moroccan flavour. Came here twice and if we'd have stayed longer, would have come again. Lovely food and a bit... More

A good meal with friends here last week. Had the room with the fire o ourselves! Full of quirkiness! Good choice of food, slight disappointment with my sea bream, over cooked first time then under cooked.....owner was very upset but he was very gracious and meal was extremely tasty! Definitely worth a visit.

We enjoyed a really great dinner here on our first night in Essaouira. The food was absolutely delicious, the waiters were lovely, and the restaurant was beautifully decorated. Would definitely recommend Elizir for its authentic cuisine and special atmosphere.

I had read a lot of great reviews about Elizir Restaurant in Essaouira before my trip and decided that I had to go. It was even better than the reviews, from the quirky, but beautiful décor, to the gourmet quality food. We had steak and fish, and both were excellent and the sides and deserts were also wonderful. It was... More

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!
