Have eaten here twice in the last week, on both occasions the food and service has been superb especially the seafood tagine and the chocolate fondant. Different live music acts both nights which really added to the athmosphere. By far and away the best restaurant I have experienced in essaouira

Lots of locals eat here - a sign it's great and we were not disappointed. Ample olives and Moroccan bread followed by calamari for starters. Lamb tagine with figs, sultanas etc. The best tagine of the holiday! The live music added to the relaxed and happy mood and the decor was traditional. A must visit at fantastic value,

Had a lovely dinner with wife and daughter. Food was really tasty; there's plenty enough on the menu that makes you want to taste it all. Great ambience too. We were taken by time and couldn't go back, but we'll definitely do at the next occasion… One note though: would make it easier if the restaurant accepted payment by card.... More

We visited this after reading a recommendation in a travel guide. We were certainly not disappointed. There was live music which provided great entertainment. Everyone was very friendly and the service and food was great. I will definitely be recommending to friends.

We decided to eat here based on the trip advisor reviews and we were hoping to catch some live music. This place did not disappoint! The food was good and the live music was awesome. We stopped in earlier in the day to make a reservation and we got a table tucked in a wonderful and romantic alcove. We could... More

We had dinner here as all the reviews on tripadvisor were very positive and decided to give it a try. We weren't disappointed, it was the best moroccan food we ate during our stay here in Essaouira. The salads were amazing and the couscous too. Also, there was life music which made it a very entertaining evening. We will definitely... More

At the point of starvation we found this restaurant recommended by the hotel we were booked in...a really enjoyable maroccan cuisine with European touch in term of preparation and presentation of courses with the delight of the typical arabic flavours...a good wine chart and very well prepared and nice service..although there is no possibility of paying with card five stars...

Having been in morocco for a month I have had quite a few Tagine, but this one here was the BEST! We had the chicken and the beef and it was outstanding. Large portion, delicious, great flavour. Excellent service. Also, lovely ambiance, sexy place with great live music to enjoy and entertain while having dinner. Highly recommend!!

We are here last night and after a good few days of bland and repetitive Moroccan food we were excited to try this place. Oh my goodness, the meal was the best I have eaten in a long time and I regularly eat out. We had the 10 salads to start, perfect portion sizes and each little salad is an... More

We enjoyed our dinner at Le Sirocco, notably thanks to the ris de veau, a nice tribute to French cuisine. They serve wine. And had a very good musician that performed folk music. Very nice ambiance,
