Beautiful food, great music, very good place to eat!

Welcome respite from the rain in an evening in August, warm and welcoming atmosphere and friendly waiters/hosts. A band were playing all evening who were fantastic & well worth a tip and suits the restaurant perfectly! The food was perfect, very well flavoured and portions just right! Good value... read more

A charming, characterful place with a fantastic French lady in charge and friendly waiters. The atmosphere with local bands playing gently in the background was great. The food was very good - not exceptional - and a caraffe of Moroccan wine went down very well indeed

Had dinner here in June when on holiday with my sisters. The place we planned on going to was closed and we then found this by accident but we absolutely loved it. My first tagine ever and it was just great. Lovely people and great service. Will be back for sure!

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

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).

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
