Best tagine in Essaouira

This was well recommended and justifiably so. Small cosy and friendly. I opted for the beef tagine with prunes and fruit. It is quite a different type of tagine to the usual meat and veg built into a cone. It was a real mix of fruit and meat flavours.

Miyame is a cozy restaurant - as others described it too - it is a hole in the wall. The personnel was very friendly and the food good vs price. The restaurant was a bit off from where it seems to be on the map via tripadvisor.

It is well worth persevering to find this authentic Moroccan restaurant. This is a tiny little place with a really delightful charm to it. The menu is small, however everything is particularly well cooked and very fresh. We were crammed into a tiny space, but enjoyed this fabulous home-cooked fare more than anywhere else on the tourist route. We even... More

A gem of a restaurant. Small and intimate with a wonderfully warm and friendly atmosphere. The meals are unbelievably cheap whilst the cooking is superb. It's as though you are eating at a friends for dinner. You can also pop across the road fo the oldest Hammas in Essaouira where Orson Welles was filmed in Othello - years ago! The... More

The owner of the Tigme Mezine, the apartment we stayed in on our first visit to Essaouira recommended Miyame and after 3 visits and trying different restaurants it is still our favourite and the one we eat at 2 or 3 times during any stay. It's small, lots of character, lovely staff and excellent food whether tagines, brochettes, fish or... More

This little hole in the wall (literally hole, very narrow with only a few tables) is a big off of the beaten path and has charm oozing out of it. The menu was pretty basic, but they definitely put their own spin on it. For 113 dirhams we walked away very full and very satisfied... Best meal yet in Morocco!

This is a very intimate but relaxed little restaurant with a small menu of mostly fish dishes. While the service is a little slow the waitress was very sweet and the food was excellent. We had the two shrimp dishes which were one of the best meals we had in morocco. The restaurant is really well priced and we would... More

Delicious food! The mixed grill is second to none. Highly recommended and incredibly reasonable. There is a great atmosphere here but it is tiny and popular so get here early! No frills, no fuss but lovely food.

They serve traditional cuisine and we found it to be excellent value. I had the mince tagine, and my friend had the vegetable wok - both were delicious! It's tiny inside and we were lucky to arrive as some one was leaving to get a table. Very cosy, candle lit, grill out front. Very cool, would definitely go here again!
