Fascinating restaurant. It's upstairs, set in several rooms. The decor is weird, owing much to the '60s - old radios, old ornaments. old posters etc. The food is good and a bit different, but with plenty of choice. Service is friendly and helpful. I loved this restaurant, mainly because it is a bit different than normal.

Great food and a lovely atmosphere. The owner is obviously passionate about his restaurant and it shows in all the food we had. The tagines were very tasty and I can highly recommend the lemon sorbet for afters! The staff were very friendly and helpful and the decor is very chic. A definite must go for anyone visiting essouira.

Elizir is THE restaurant, how a restaurant in my opinion should be. Everything just suits, they SERVE you without being humble but rather sympathetic, the decoration is recognizable but unique and the food is delicious and you never have the impression you could make that yourself at home. It comes in generous portions and the presentation is a big surprise... More

This was one of the most exceptional meals we've had in a long time. The restaurant has quirky decor, but your eyes are then drawn to the stunning Faces of Morocco photos on the wall. Service is polite and understated. The atmosphere in the place is such that you end up chatting with other tables discussing the meal and your... More

Elizir is an exquisite address. Everything about our dinner experience here was flawless. The restaurant is beautiful, artfully decorated with old, artistic and glamorous artifacts that give the place an aura of life and history. We were greeted warmly by the owner Abdellatif, seated at a comfortable table and served delicious complimentary appetizers. The food was innovative and sublime. The... More
