Having eaten here in April 2014 I am a little surprised at the number of effusive reviews it has on TA. The food is good, but not stunning. Service was a little slow, and the seating is a bit cramped. Food was tasty, but we did have fish and tagine dishes which you would expect to be good in Essaouira.... More

This restaurant really deserves to have a no. 1 slot on Trip Advisor. Maybe this review will help towards getting it there! The food was perfect on both occasions we went there - stuffed sardines, fish with orange butter, couscous royale and, yes, the apple pie....At lunch time we sampled the charming and gracious service and truly delicious cooking of...

We arrived early (7pm) to get a table as they can only seat about 12 people. We received a warm welcome and the service from start to finish was perfect. I had the Lamb tagine and the other half had the chicken one. They were both excellent full of flavour and good sized portions. At less than 20 euros for... More

This was a great surprise. Very friendly family run place. Like eating in their front room. Lovely, tasty food at a fraction of the price elsewhere. Get their early or book. Its very small and well known to regulars.

Loved the atmosphere and the food was outstanding. There is a starter with filled sardines that might sound a bit odd until you see it and taste it from somebody else's plate. Then you quickly change your might and order some too... I also had the tagine with meatballs. Very, very tasty.

This restaurant really deserves top marks for hospitality & attentive service from the lovely family who run it. It is an authentic, local restaurant, tiny, with only a few tables, seating around 10-12 people. Sad that I could not rate it higher, but the food was disappointing. The lamb chops with the cous-cous dish were dried out & tough, as... More

What a real gem! This little restaurant is fantastic in terms of quality of food, service with a family touch and value. It is a small place with seating for only 10 persons or so, but we did not book and just showed up just after opening time (in the high season you could not do that I suspect). Once... More

Spent 4 nights in Essaouira, and had my top 2 dinners at miyame. Price was great, food was delicious, and conversation with Aziz topped off a great time. Definitely stop by here for a great dinner!

Had not been here for a long,long time. Nice,pretty little restaurant. Food was slow to arrive but they were busy. My lamb chops were not as well cooked as I like plus tricky to eat because of their cut. Lovely fresh chips. Apple pie dessert very good. No alcohol. Good value for money. Could be a long time before I... More

Miyame is a lovley little restaurant. It has a great vib to it - friendly and unassuming. The interior is cozy and comfortable. The staff are helpful and friendly. But the best is the price- quality ratio. Brilliant! Good good food, always fresh and plenty of it, and at such a reasonable price. Definitely worth going to!
