Our Riad booked our table at this restaurant, located on the west side of the Medina and off one of the east-west streets. So eclectically decorated, with a mix of old-world Moroccan, New Orleans courtyard townhome, French, and world cultural art. The food is equally eclectic, and delicious. Good wine selection, too. The owner came by several times to check... More

Last day of the holiday and we poke our heads through the door at midday to ask if there's a table for four that evening? Not on the ground floor apparently, but we're offered something on the first floor balcony, away from the main action in the gladed courtyard below. We're tired and out of options and we accept. Good... More

We visited without a reservation on the off chance and were delighted to be fitted in for dinner - my husband and I and our two daughters aged 10 & 8. It was from start to finish a really lovely experience. The staff are all wonderful; humorous and chatty (a combination of our pigeon French and their English made it... More

loved this place. Beautiful art work on the walls, comfy arm chairs to sit in, live mellowed music, and beautiful food (beef fillet was gorgeous!) Just make sure you book, it gets busy

This amazing place deserves every one of it's good reviews and should be number 1 in essaouira I think! Incredibly welcoming staff, wonderful food, fantastic atmosphere, I am only sad I only got to eat there once!

There are few places which have the individuality of this restaurant. Hidden down a side street the entrance leads to a very unusual setting . The owner is a French artist who had transformed his traditional Moroccan home into a hugely popular (but small) restaurant with a reputation which means booking is essential. Diners either eat in the internal courtyard... More

How is it that we arrive at Chez Didier....feeling the heaviness of an Essaouira day and ALWAYS leave with high spirits, laughing and smiling without a care in the world!

Place is not pretentious. Service is out of this world (owner greets you when you come in, each member of staff tries hard to smile, and joke with you). Food is decent and original, creative, fusion of Moroccan, Caribean, French. Setting is also out of this world, with a Carribean atmosphere in the middle of Essaouira's Medina. Entertainment is top... More

This is such a gem of a place. Food is fresh, delicious and varied, the ambiance great and service is friendly yet not too intrusive. What also really sets this place apart from the others is the dinner entertainment. We were thoroughly amused throughout our meal by magicians, fire eaters and a local band playing addictive traditional songs. The quality... More
