Quirky restaurant and great food

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.

We discovered this late one night and loved the atmosphere, music and decor. We only had a drink (very interesting blends of veg/fruits/herbs) and dessert (very tasty). But we would definitely come back for a complete meal as the food being finished around us looked very tasty.

We had a great meal here. There isn't a huge amount of choice but there is always a vegetarian option, and the food was delicious, the service excellent. The cafe has no licence but you can bring your own drink if you can locate one of the two shops in Essaouria that sells alcohol. The meal was great value and... More

The menu changes every night after what ingredients are best at that exact day. My friends and I went here for two dinners and it was amazing both times. Different and exciting combinations of ingredients and spices, in a really nice space with lovely staff. Would recommend this place to anyone going to Essaouira/Morocco!

Triskala is a quirky vegetarian restaurant with a menu that changes daily. We enjoyed our first visit so much that we returned the next evening. The food is simple but well prepared and the no plastic bottle or pre-prepared food policy is refreshing. There is a buzzy but laid-back atmosphere which proved popular, many people were turned away so booking... More
