Perfect food and ambiance

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!

Wonderful food, best price for this high quality... Can't say anything more, you've got to go and try, everything was fresh and delicious, authentic food in Marrakech and Essaouria us often very uninterestingly seasoned, sometimes the ingredients are old; HERE it was all perfect!!! The merguez in this restaurant is the best i ever tried!

Good value, great food and a traditional (ish) restauant we found on our last day in Essa. Only seats around 12-15 people but this place was both the cheapest and best place we had dined out in Essa on our last trip 7 of us sat down to eat both starters and main courses, mostly the soups for starters which...

A small, intimate, unique restaurant offering excellent food. Booked by our Riad Baladin manager, Claudia, (booking is a must), we arrived to be greeted warmly and shown to our table. Three courses later - salad & soup starter and tajines and decided not to have dessert; just mint tea (ask for "sans sucre" if you don't want the tea too... More
