The diced beef indian style was exceptional. The price too was very fair. Very glad we decided to dine here and would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for... More

Very good food and wine with excellent service all at a price that we were more than happy to pay. All the staff made us feel very welcome even though we had not booked, we will go back before the end of our stay.

I have not enjoyed a meal as much as we did here for a long time. The food ,service and ambience were outstanding. During the evening a magician came round each table and thrilled us with a few tricks... All part of the service.

Visited on our last day in Essaouira for an early lunch. Caravane Cafe could be hard to find if you're unfamiliar with the Medina, but its just off the street and removed from all the hectic life on the main street. Nice and calm! The cafe itself is beautiful, lots of paintings and arty decoration - you could never get... More

We took one of their booths/rooms for our group of 11 off the garden courtyard. It was perfect for hearing the music but being able to chat. Also we got our own 'magician show'. Food, wines and cocktails made it a special night never to be forgotten. Top service, Top rating.

Great traditional Moroccan food, great atmosphere, art and lighting. Go! it's a great place to meet and eat, or even celebrate! the live band adds to the exotic low light mood. Gently attentive, the hosts are so charming, we loved it here, went twice during our week in Essaouira!

Staff could not have been more friendly and the food was great. We arrived with no reservation,but were seated quickly and comfortably. Entertainment and music are the highlights at this great restaurant.
