Live music, fire eaters, and even a magician! This is a lovely place with a very genuine atmosphere. Quirky, artistic and definitely a must. The food is quiet delicious; I had fresh crab gratin, which was out of this world, and ice cream. They made a wicked Irish Coffee too!

This restaurant has a fantastic atmosphere and full of interesting artworks and sculptures around a pretty garden - great live music the night we were there - drummers to die for, a fab fire eater and fun magician - everyone was very friendly and helpful and the food was good

GREAT music....food, eh, not so much....kind of dated food that would have been trendy in the 80s, but well worth going to regardless...AMAZING staff, so friendly and FANTASTIC MUSIC. Atmosphere there was a like being at fun party. HIGHLY RECOMMEND, despite the strange food.

We ate at Caravane Café several times for lunch and dinner and were not disappointed on any occasion. The food is a varied fusion of influences but is very good - our favourite was a Japanese inspired chicken with toffee & cashew nuts! The service was excellent - warm and quick too. The experience was enriched by some great live... More

We jumped over puddles in the torrential rain along the streets of Essaouira to find this place. Despite losing many of their table in the open courtyard due to the rain were invited to take a table inside upstairs. With a roaring log fire we took out seats and started to browse the menu. A great selecting of appetizing dishes,... More

I absolutely love this place. The atmosphere, the entertainment, the owners, the exciting menu, delicious food - incredible combination. Wonderful live music, talented magician visiting the tables and a fire dancer. If Didier could bottle the magic he would be a billionaire.

Our riad recommended this place when our first choice of restaurants was unavailable. We couldn't have been more pleased with our meal at Caravane Cafe. First, they accommodated an early-ish seating for us of 8:00 pm . Second, the charming owner/manager stopped by our table several times to make sure we were happy with everything. Third, the ongoing entertainment and... More

I know cafe is in the name but I thought this was a restaurant. I've never been to a restaurant where the food arrived so quickly. We were in and out in just over an hour.
