best food - good memories!! A MUST

We came here several times because the food and service are excellent! Anything you wish for is possible. The staff remembers you and what you like/dislike. The couscous royale is the best I have ever had, same goes for the vegetarian tagine (only 35 Dh). When you want to have an authentic... read more

Simple food excellently prepared and good value. A memorable meal. We were taken there by a local but it was full so we had to book for another evening. The assorted fish was flavoured in a way I have never come across before and I will remember the rare pleasure it gave me. No wine or beer; good value.

Good food, simple and tasty and great service and atmospheric surroundings. A lovely place to try local cooking and experience an intimate medina setting.

My wife and I came across this little restaurant whilst wandering around Essaouira and went in as it looked so enticing. It is charming and the food is very good. I ordered small prawns that were so delicious that I ate them with their shells on. My wife had wok fried vegetables with rice that were also delicious. Simple food... More

Tucked away in a quiet section of the medina, this tiny restaurant is pure charm. The two person team in the kitchen are great hosts and serve up superb dishes. The decor and seating relax the senses as soon as you walk in. Not to be missed!

We stumbled upon Miyame while exploring the medina and came back for dinner one evening (tip: come early as it fills up quickly). The decor was charming, we loved the tiles on the walls and the soft lighting, it was quite magical, in a simple, understated way. The service was warm and friendly, we chatted and laughed with the cook,... More

A very pleasant surprise. Excellent traditional , tasteful, fresh cuisine by people who really know what they are doing. The briouates were crisp and savoury with a fresh salad. The sardines were fantastic fresh, cooked just enough and seasoned to perfection. For dessert the apple tarte was delicious. A very pleasant meal for a very honest quality/price ratio.

We stumbled into Miyane after my wife rebelled, frustrated from my poor map reading ability and not willing to venture further, after a long day of exploring Essaouira. A fortunate stumble it was as our dinner was quite enjoyable. We ordered a minced meat tangine that was very flavorful with figs, prunes and almonds that created a delicious sauce, perfect... More

Not flash, just good cooking. As other's have said, there's only seven tables so book ahead. It's very reasonably priced. There's only one guy serving and he was being pulled in every direction. We weren't in any hurry and when the food arrived it was so worth the wait. No alcohol served here. Just good Moroccan food. Enjoy!
