Quirky atmosphere and great food.

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.

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

We were recommended this restaurant by our Riad owner and we were initially wary as, even though the ambiance of the restaurant was lovely, the menu options were very limited and did not include meat. However when we visited this restaurant we were not disappointed. The owner explained the menu to us explaining they have different dishes every evening with... More

I'd seen some great reviews for this place so it was on my list of restaurants to visit, just not so easy to find when you first arrive in Essaouira and are navigating all the back streets!! When we finally did stumble across it was for lunch when they serve a set menu - veg option is 50dh and the... More

My husband is strict vegetarian and we looked forward to dining here. What a wonderful, tucked away quirky gem of a find! Everything beautifully and freshly prepared with flavours that excelled! I opted for the vegetarian tagine which was superb ~ a lovely addition was that it came with a side dish of stewed apricots and other fruit which was... More

You have to hunt this small restaurant-cafe out, down a small street near the ramparts. But worth it, whether you are a veggie or not. Went with my wife for a 3pm lunch - a plat de jour was on offer- veggie or fish. We went veggie - very tasty! Cost was 150DR in total for two. About £10. Can't... More
