Possibly the friendliest staff we encountered during our trip to Morocco. Great relaxed, slightly bohemian atmosphere, I would happily go here every night! Wish I'd had the time to try the food, however my partners' stir fry was perfectly cooked and delicious. Try the rum gingembre (a generous shot of rum mixed with freshly juiced ginger). My new favourite digestif!... More

For a special meal out, the Caravane is the perfect place. A varied menu and fresh wines served in a beautiful inner courtyard, full of plants, roses and portraits. When we were there , there was some live music by three very talented young musicians playing Touareg style music / so beautiful.

We were recommended by staff at our Riad and glad we found it. Its tucked away in a side street and difficult enough to find in daylight so we called in for a drink - yes you can just have a drink - and booked a table for the evening. Its a typical local Riad style property with rooms around... More

Lovely little restaurant tucked away in the streets of Essaouira. Such friendly staff, delicious food and fun atmosphere - with live music and fire dancers :) Definitely recommend a night dining here, would 100% return and reasonably priced!
