Great atmosphere, live music, attentive staff :) The live flame juggler was good fun and had the whole restaurant smiling. Food was of a good standard.

This place is just magical! Even just for a tea or a drink of their hooch (if you dare) is an experience. The food is fantastic (though we only had desserts in our visit, the menu looks great). And the decor is just stupendous! All sort of different rooms to dine in all with fantastic art work and artefacts. The... More

Oh my gosh, the dinner was phenomenal to say the least and i just fell in love with the whole concept, the decor, the magician (come on, that is so original)! What a great place for artists and most and foremost the food is truly amazing. I LOVED it! You shouldn't miss it!

So good that my wife and I went twice during our four nights stay in Essaouira. Book a table outside in the ground floor courtyard and enjoy the atmosphere.
