Best fusion Moroccan food in Essaouira!

We visited this place as recommended by the owner of our Riad. And this was the best recommendation that we are glad we took! The place is hidden in a small cobbled street next to the medina's wall, very intimate from outside. Inside, once you step in, you are entering another world. The decor, the... read more

This cosy restaurant with some sunken rooms makes for great atmosphere. The food is delicious catering to all tastes and especially vegetarian dishes! Friendly waitress looked after us very well and this restaurant was recommended for westerners with regard to good clean food and drinks. It is situated in the medina and so it's not far to head down into... More

Such a cool venue and the food is absolutely delicious. We had pumpkin + artichoke tagine and it was perfect -- and priced perfectly, too! Wish I'd eaten there every day when I was in Essaouira.

You walk into an aladins cave of wonder. Little snugs, tree houses and hidey holes. Music memorabilia decorates the walls. The owner is incredibly welcoming, very chatty and very passionate about the food. This place is perfect for vegetarians and pescetarians. Delicious fresh and flavoursome food, with good portions. Fantastic homebaked bread with slight hint of aniseed, gorgeous minted water,... More

Great special Saturday Triskala - what an ambiance emerged with the gnaoua youngsters and the femaile cooking-team playing music and singing after feeding the crowds - you rocked the restaurant and made the entire place dancing! The surprise - some creative and yummy "Easter" eggs for desert. Thank you! Die Triskala überzeugt immer wieder mit einem neu zusammengestellen Menu, das... More

I loved this quirky little place in a beautiful old building with fun and unique decor. Our waitress was very friendly and welcoming and the food was delicious, especially the bread which was amazing! I'd love to go back and see what their ever changing menu has next time. A lovely, affordable place for a good vegetarian (or fish) dinner.

Limited menu which changes daily depending on what is available though I suspect there are some semi-regular dishes from overhearing other return diners discuss the menu. I had avocado and spinach salad to start which arrived without the avocado but was still so delicious I was tempted not to point out the omission! I did, and it was swiftly whisked... More
