We arrived at about 7.30pm, without booking, and there weren't many other people there. We ordered our food and a bottle of French white wine. My friend had chick pea soup, and I had an aubergine and tomato 'salad' - both were very good, and promptly served. We then had a fish tajine and chicken couscous. Again both excellent, though...

Nice restaurant with several rooms. Amazing food with reasonable prices. The woman manager is very friendly and adviser. The waiters are kind and polite. The music played by a singer gave a nice atmosphere. Not to miss :)

Visited with friends on the recommendation of staff at our Riad. Great food, I had the local special Pastilla, excellent. Food was presented very well, and an issue with the steak was dealt with quickly and politely by the attentive staff. Throughout there was a great singer performing, could have sat there all night. Relaxed atmosphere nd no pressure to... More

My friend and I Fell in love with pastilla when we went to Morocco so we ended up hunting out the best one in each town we visited. This place certainly lives up to it's name. Off the main road, slightly difficult to find but totally worth it! Ask the locals for directions.

We were there for dinner, found it by chance because our hotel was very nearby. We were very positively surprised. The staff was very friendly and professional, and the food was excellent. They have a selection of Morroco wine. When asked about "grey wine", we could try it at no charge, even if we decided to go for red after... More

Loved this place. We were pretty much the first people there but we were welcomed in and took a table in the corner. The waiter was great. It was only his second day on the job but he was just brilliant. We had a lovely meal and bottle of red. The live music was great and we both thoroughly enjoyed... More

We enjoyed great food here on two occasions on our trip to Essaouira. The food was delicious AND it is one of the few places you can get a beer or wine with dinner. The staff was great and very attentive. My only complaint is that the live music is VERY, VERY loud-good but loud!!

We returned twice to this very enjoyable restaurant after a gap of 5 years. Food is imaginative using the best of local ingredients, staff are consistently attentive and charming and the live music sets the scene for a relaxed, fun evening. Both fish and vegetarian options are some of the best available in Essaouria.
