Place is not pretentious. Service is out of this world (owner greets you when you come in, each member of staff tries hard to smile, and joke with you). Food is decent and original, creative, fusion of Moroccan, Caribean, French. Setting is also out of this world, with a Carribean atmosphere in the middle of Essaouira's Medina. Entertainment is top... More

This is such a gem of a place. Food is fresh, delicious and varied, the ambiance great and service is friendly yet not too intrusive. What also really sets this place apart from the others is the dinner entertainment. We were thoroughly amused throughout our meal by magicians, fire eaters and a local band playing addictive traditional songs. The quality... More

We had a great time in Caravane Cafe. It's effectively a large riad, with the option to sit in the courtyard for the live music, or in the rooms off to the side for more privacy. It's colourfully lit and decorated in quite a European way, and the artwork on the walls is for sale. The staff were very welcoming,... More

Loved this restaurant. This is more than an evening meal, it's a night out in Essaouira. Top notch service, extremely helpful staff & a welcome to each table by the owner. The food was really good, Cajun style crab cakes so tasty followed by fabulous noodle dish which I asked for without meat - no problem & delicious! Great entertainment... More

Very nice food and drinks. In Moroccan, European atmosphere. Good service, hardly have to wait for a thing. That was a bit disturbing for me. Everything very much in a hurry......

Chose this place as read good reviews and the last evening. After a lovely earlier evening watching football on the beach we found the restaurant. We were welcomed and that warmth continued through the evening. The manager went beyond what is expected, he called the riad we were staying at for us and the taxi company all to reassure us....

We went to Caravane Cafe for dinner last week and it was such an enjoyable experience. The staff were lovely, very attentive and made us feel very welcome. The owner visited every table to welcome each diner to his restaurant which was a nice personal touch. The food we ate was mostly very good, especially the moroccan medley starter and... More

Food and entertainment ( musicians, fire dancer and 'at your table' magician ) were excellent. Fast service. Very attentive humorous waiters. Leave room for dessert!

Lunched at Caravane Cafe after having had a recommendation, but not knowing quite what to expect. The whole experience was fascinating, from the mixing of different art and interior design styles, through the choice of music played to the choices on the menu. We mixed local dishes with those from Indonesia - and everything was thoroughly enjoyable. Service was friendly... More
