Delicious food, fun surroundings, very reasonably priced

Went here twice, once for dinner, once for lunch. The food is absolutely delicious. Lots of little bowls of this and that - all tasting fantastic. The value for money is amazing considering how lovely the food is. The surroundings are cosy and kitsch. The staff are very friendly, although at dinner... read more

A wonderful gem found on the back streets, the menu changes daily and is original. Brilliant atmosphere for a cosy meal. All of the employees we came across were super; even moved us when the balcony table, for 2, came available. A must when in Essaouira.

We arrived before the cafe had opened but they let us sit inside with our one year old, who was grouchy after an exciting morning running around the walls and harbour. The decor is eclectic but pleasant and the menu simple. We ordered one fish plate and one vegetable plate. Rather than the usual Moroccan discs of bread, they served... More

I was keen to visit this place after reading the reviews and I wasn't disappointed. After finding it in the higgledy piggledy streets of the medina very close to the stunning north bastion I was impressed with the quirky atmosphere and decor then even more impressed by the food. I am vegetarian and I was with meat eaters, everyone was... More

Wonderful place. Quirky and cosy. The staff were friendly and incredibly nice. The food was absolutely amazing. Incredible. Fresh and tasty. It was in fact an utterly brilliant experience that I would highly recommend to anyone. Fantastic through and through.

What can I say? 9 nights in Essaouira. 7 meals in Triskala. We tried other places but they just didn't match up. Wonderful hosts, great music and fab food that used local ingredients in very imaginative ways coupled with the Velvet Underground soundtrack and fantastic interior design. Fab.

My boyfriend and I went here today after searching Trip Advisor for good restaurant recommendations. They had two menus you could choose from: 1 fish plate & dessert for 60 dirham or 1 vegetarian plate & dessert for 50 dirham. We both chose the vegetarian option and it was great - I honestly don't really know what was on my... More

This was probably the nicest place we ate at while in Essaouira. They were very welcoming when we arrived and I immediately felt relaxed. This is not posh! So don't expect bow ties and polished shoes. The person who came to take our order brought a baby from another table with him they appeared to be looking after for a... More
