"Very good Moroccan food"

It is not too difficult to find this restaurant and it is well worth a visit. Very good Moroccan food served by attentive staff in pleasant surroundings. It was so good we returned a few days later. Dishes of note were the sardine tagine and calamari starter (which was large enough to feed two).

The atmosphere in the place was okay, and the wait staff were very attentive and helpful. Unfortunately for me the food let it down. I ordered the vegetarian tagine and found that it was just so, so incredibly salty that there were parts I just couldn't eat. There was barely any other flavouring to it bar that of excessive salt.... More

Came here for a family dinner on Sunday evening. It is a lovely restaurant and the staff gave us a warm welcome. We ordered a variety of dishes including calamari, pastilla and tangia and they were all superb abd went well with the President Rosé wine. The chocolate fondant pudding was equally excellent. To make the evening really special their... More

The restaurant came highly recommended from our guide and we arrived with very high expectations and its so nice to say that we were NOT disappointed. Looking back at our 2 weeks trip through Morocco - this was one our best meals! The menu is local Essaouiran with a French flair (as I understand the owner is French). The restaurant... More

We were recommended the restaurant by our hotel and after reading reviews online we had high expectations. Unfortunately we did not go on a night with live music so the restaurant was lacking any type of ambiance and was mostly empty the entire time we were there. Nevertheless the menu was extensive and the food was tasty and reasonable, especially... More

Le Sirocco has so many good reviews, there is not much more to add. We didnt go on a music night, which from the comments here seems to add to the experience. The service was variable. For 10 mins non-one came to take our drinks order, and then 2 at almost the same time. The cause could be the Maitress... More

We visited this gem a couple of times during our week in Essaouira., introducing some friends who joined us on our last night.Any, ably supported by Vicenta and the boys ensured you had a wonderful evening. We tried both set menus and each was superb with very generous portions. The highlights for me were the slow cooked beef and chocolate... More

Excellent service & typically great French hospitality. I had a very tasty harira soup with dates whilst my husband had bouillabaise, both were delicious. To follow we ordered seafood tagine and lamb Tanjia. There was half a lobster in the seafood tagine and the lamb Tanjia was tender and delicately spiced . Chocolate fondant with orange cream rounded off nicely!... More
