Our best eating experience in Morocco. Serving simple Moroccan food that could turn anyone vegetarian. If you are in Essaouira this is a must - the atmosphere is unlike any restaurant I have been to before! The simplicity of the food, combined with the incredible taste and freshness of the ingredients will blow you away! Also, the fruit juices are... More

On arrival we were greeted by an informative Spanish waitress who was very sympthetic to our terrible French, and after explanations we found the menu varied and very appealing. All the ingredients are fresh that day and the menu changes each day.The meal was extremely tasty, filling, simple flavours with fresh ingredients always a perfect combination.

Great restaurant, fantastic ethics, new menu daily, we ate very well and the prices were very reasonable. We are vegetairan and the generous portion sizes filled us up, the home made bread was lovely, fresh juices were also very good. Couldn't fault the restaurant, even if we wanted to. Thank you :)

My favourite place in Essaouira out of the 10 (ish) places I ate at! Looked like a standard place from the outside, but then I went in and it was like a magical treehouse!! Tables on different levels and sweet music and cute decor! Food amazing, service from a lovely Spanish lady and overall a lovely place.

It's a quirky, fun place to eat. Cool not kitsch decor. Mainly vegetarian but the odd fish dish too. The food is full of flavour and filling. We climbed the three or four steps to sneak onto one of the mezzanine tables. If you enjoy crossed legged, bohemian but unpretentious dining, then this is the place for you.

Based on the reviews we had high expectations. We were greeted by a very informal waiter with little or no English. He was a friendly, polite man. When he took our order he could not explain the dishes to us so we ordered a little blind. We had the spinach pie for starters and it was really delicious. For mains... More

The regular chef must have been away when we went as the food was underseasoned, uninspiring and overpriced. Although the decor was interesting and the ambience was good, it did not make up for the blandness of the food. We were disappointed in the experience after reading such positive reviews.

It's a really cool restaurant with amazing food, I had a ocean tagine one night and a falafal the other, both were about as good as you can get it, the chocolate fondants were pretty awesome too. The menu is small (4 or so available choices each course), but its good for us, it forced our kids to be a... More
