Visited with my wife, had the lamb tajine and the gratinated spider crab. Both were very fine and delicious. Also the starters, seafood pastries and Moroccan salad, were pure awesomeness!

Essaouira has it's hidden gems and Caravane is definitely one of them! When you find it, you're in for a treat on all levels. Excellent food, very good service and the entertainment to go with it all. I don't want to spoil the surprise you'll get however, when in Essaouira, do make time (and a booking) for dinner at Caravane... More

Absolutely did not expect to find a restaurant of this calibre. Small, intimate and beautiful. Food was absolutely exquisite. Unfortunately, I was too early for the live music. Service was amazing. Cannot say enough about this restaurant. Note that they are closed on Mondays.

Lovely place, as other people have described. Service was a bit poor due to a large group dining at the same time as us but before they turned up it was great. You could tell that normally it works be perfect. More than made up by the fact we were served one of the best steaks I've ever had, it... More

I loved it! You get a genuinely warm welcome and a great evening including entertainment (live music + magic + fire eating). Service is informal and friendly but professional as well. The menu is eclectic and varied - probably too much to expect every dish to be executed perfectly. I had Tahitian fish to start followed by salmon and cheese.... More
