Very good

Very tasty, good vegetarian options, great value, service "relaxed". But TripAdvisor, why make me pad out to a minimum review length?

Traditional moroccan food served at low tables. A good selection of fish, tagines and couscous as well as other Moroccan foods and drinks. The owner is lovely, speak English, French, German and Arabic and reminded us of Basil Fawlty !. You don't always get what you ordered as nothing is ever written down and depending on which drink you order... More

The food and service was good, the bread was the best! The restaurant is close to the seaside, yet it was quiet enough. Beautifully decorated and clean. The owner was very nice, helpful and speaks few languages too.

We had a yearning for Thai food at Green Wok, just around the corner but they were still closed and I was roaring hungry (note to self - a Magnum is NOT really lunch) and we just wanted food and fast. We stumbled across Dar Al Houma, seeing a tiny room filled with people. We didn't realise that was just... More

Beautiful, cosy traditional restaurant. The food is the best we've had in essaouira and Marrakech. And at such a great price! The waiter/owner was so lovely and friendly. Very genuine. Definitely a restaurant you want to try early on in your stay as you'll most likely head back a second time.

Lovely late lunch had here - fresh calamari and excellent falafel and houmous. We only had half an hour and the owner quickly produced our food and was very welcoming and friendly. Loved the decor and would have been nice to return to try in the evening when it would have been busier but unfortunately we were leaving that day.... More

We've been to the restaurant twice so much we liked our first experience. We had the grilled sole, the Moroccan soup and the tea. Beautiful. I loved the great balance of spices, you feel them but they don't overpower the fish. The atmosphere is great, the host is exactly that, a host, and the experience is lovely. Recommended.

We had dinner here. Grilled shrimp is 60dh but there were only 10 smalls shrimps. And we ordered some grilled fishes. Taste is ok but side dishes like vegetables or salad wasn't very good. There is too much smoke inside and they ask us to go to the shop for having change and come back. Because they don't have 15dh... More
