We visited for dinner while on holiday in Essaouira. We have had a house in the town for eight years so we were looking for a bit of a treat beyond the usual tagines you find in the medina. If you are trying to find the place don't use the location shown on TripAdvisor. Exit the medina through Bab Marrakech,... More

The food is excellent and prices are very reasonable. Every things is fresh and tastes wonderfully. They have games for kids, which made it easy to enjoy our meal while our 3 and 5 year old boys played. The patio is super large and makes it easy to stretch and relax. Our kids enjoyed the best fresh juices. David and... More

Nice filling meal served in patio. Nice expat hangout. Can sit indoors. too. The weather in January is just perfect to enjoy an outdoor meal.

Had a nice lunch and coffee break here with a friend. A few Moroccan musicians passing by playing traditional Moroccan music with drums while we were sitting outside, which lent itself to a relaxing afternoon. Good food, inexpensive prices, great coffee, really friendly staff who were there to clean up every water drip from the glass.

Outside the medina walls, there is a large low white building with lots of arches surrounded by an ill-maintained garden space. On the building side away from the port is where you will find this small place that packs a big surprise. There is not even a proper sign outside to identify it - one of us was even reluctant...

La tete dans les etoiles is a nice cute cafe restaurant just outside the medina of essaouira. After 10 days travelling in Morrocco, I begun to be very tired of the tajines and couscous, especially because I am vegetarian and so have nearly no choice, so I was well happy to go to la tete dans les etoiles. They have... More
