Delicious

Very atmospheric with 60's music playing and veggi friendly food. Small menu but changes daily, fish bought fresh from the local market each morning. We just wish it opened for lunch too!

Popped in as it was supposed to be good for vegetarians/vegans. Not disappointed. Food was lovely; really fresh, full of flavour and served quickly. Music was ace as well. While we were there they played talking heads, the cure and the velvet underground; nice little bonus having a top soundtrack while you have your dinner.

The main dish was alright however a bit to the heavy side - needed "air" in order to be delicate. Dessert (the surprise) was a disappointment ...looked like skyr with some compote on top...something you would serve for brunch, again very heavy and the presentation looked lazy. Waiters very sweet." Bring your own wine"- bar. The vegetarian food could however... More

A bit nostalgic cafe with mainly vegetarian food. Going back into the sixties, nice music and great ambiance. We adored the food and we will back every time that we visit Essaouira.

Four of us went one evening for a vegetarian meal and the only place left for us was up a few stairs and in through a tiny opening. We sat on the floor with cushions and enjoyed a ginger and mango drink whilst waiting for our meal. The starters were incredibly tasty and very varied, the main courses were equally... More

Every day Triskala shops it's Biological Products fresh from the Zouk, 20 km from Essaouira on the country-site! Every day they come back with a new arrangement of fruits and veggies, so every day the kitchen of Triskala creates a full new menu. Starters, dishes and lovely desserts! What an adventure this place! The ambiance is lovely, a creative cave!... More

We arrived in Essaouira today from Marrakech, and was recommended this place by some danish couple, I'm so glad they recommended it. Best meal so far in morocco and the owner is so nice. The meal was amazing. So much pride taken in everything. Arrangement of restaurant, drinks, good. Must eat here if your in town!!
