One of the top restaurants

Loved the atmosphere of this restaurant. It was a brisk March evening and we sat by the fireplace. The food and service very good. Enjoy!! I tried the beef and calamari dish

I always seek out Didier when I've had a long day in town. His cheerful welcome and kind service support a staff that he has personally trained to be the same.His exotic menu choices never disappoint as well . The magician, the fire twirler, the acrobats,the music make for a transporting experience that is unparalelled in Essaouira. One could be... More

We ate here once. Probably wouldn't go back because we like really good food. This place is about atmosphere which is important but you need to tick every box. The food was mediocre-i had to send me fish course back because it wasng cooked. I think they're trying too hard with their menu and it gets confusing and the quality... More

The restaurant centres around an open air garden, filled with trees and plants and tables and heaters - it's really beautiful. And the food is sublime: fruity lamb tagines, toffee puddings oozing with sauce, a wine list of great local options. I would highly recommend this as value for money and the perfect place for lunch or dinner as the... More

This restaurant is good but not as good as it thinks it is. Prices are expensive for Morrocco - cost us around £100 for 2 mains, 2 dessert, bottle of wine and one drink each which is around the cost of a very well rated place in the UK. The food was very good and shows imagination and skill. The... More

Visited twice with friends in February on the advice of our Riad staff. What a little gem. Food was delicious and a good variety of styles on offer. Well presented and prepared. The local band playing were excellent, as was the magician who wanders around visitng each table with close up tricks. We sat outside under the heaters and the... More

We went to Caravane for our last night in Essaouira, and certainly ended the trip on a high. The live music, fire dancer and incredibly friendly waiters made for a party atmosphere. The food was lovely and it was so nice to sit in the open courtyard. The only tiny complaint was that we felt slightly rushed during the evening,... More

We found it quite hard to find a busy, decent restaurant with a cosy atmosphere in the Medina but it might have been because it was January and low season. We were looking for a restaurant with live music where we could have wine with our meal and were recommended this one. We ended up having dinner here two nights... More
