My husband and I went to the Caravan Cafe on a recommendation from a friend. We had a great time. The service and the food were both excellent. The decor is very nice and I loved the various Zen faces. There was some nice live music but we were a little too early for the magician. All in all one... More

This was recommended to us by the owner of the riad we were staying in, as his favourite place to eat in Essaouira. We popped in during the day to make a reservation for our last night before heading to Marrakech as we didn't want to miss out. We had a lovely table in a side room from the main,... More

We were told that Caravane Cafe was a great place to go for a fun meal and it didn't disappoint. The layout and decor is very unusual - for example we had a large red camel statue peering at us through some shrubs! During the meal, we also had a magician visit our table to perform tricks, a fire juggler... More

We had one meal at the caravane cafe and loved the laid back atmosphere in the courtyard which was cosy despite it being a windy night. The music on that night was very pleasant and didn't take over. The fire juggler and magician appeared strange to us but weren't annoying. Food was good, doesn't stand out for being super brilliant... More

This is an eclectic, fun place where you're made to feel welcome and can enjoy great international cuisine. Each table is different, and the way the restaurant is set up you feel like you're having a private party. We enjoyed "Eggplant and Mozzarella Mille-feuille Sorbet and Vegetables," as well as the Brick Cheese Goats Hot Honey Argan" as starters. Both... More

This is such a fun place to eat. Sitting in a courtyard with heaters above or I suppose if you book the little rooms off the courtyard. Good food and fun atmosphere.

Exceptional food (served from a delightful open kitchen); exceptional service (you are pampered by servers & management alike); exceptional décor (unique, must be seen to be believed); & exceptional entertainment (great live music & even a magician moving from table to table). Do not wait until the end of your Essaouira visit to eat here because you will certainly want... More

We ate well with very good food from a comprehensive menu and a decent selection of wines. Unexpected evening entertainment consisted of a small band that played well in the style of Santana and similar artists, a table magician and a fire dancer! The owners become friends as soon as you meet them, always keeping an eye on things and... More

We were a little apprehensive about the bongos but they are not there every night! Anyway the best places to eat are upstairs in the side rooms that are beautifully decorated and warmer if you visit off season. The food was excellent and the menu more varied than many places in morocco. Reasonable wine list. Personal service. Good value for... More
