Food and entertainment ( musicians, fire dancer and 'at your table' magician ) were excellent. Fast service. Very attentive humorous waiters. Leave room for dessert!

Lunched at Caravane Cafe after having had a recommendation, but not knowing quite what to expect. The whole experience was fascinating, from the mixing of different art and interior design styles, through the choice of music played to the choices on the menu. We mixed local dishes with those from Indonesia - and everything was thoroughly enjoyable. Service was friendly... More

We called in here on the recommendation of our Riad, and we're not disappointed. The food, service, atmosphere and overall experience was brilliant. We had a starter, main course, drinks and coffee to finish for 45 Dhs. A meal of this quality in UK would easily have been £100+. Well worth a visit

Very good fusion food, mixing local ingredients with modern kitchen, fantastic service and attention, a creative decor you wont't forget, a fantastic atmosphere and even with a 'non-invasive' entertaining. Fantastic evening that fully captures the spirit of Essaouira!

The food is wonderful and different, the service is unmatched and most of all the creator of Caravane Cafe , Didier Spindler, has contributed in so many ways to the spirit and breath of Essaouira. Didier knows exactly how to make everyone feel comfortable,welcome and a real part of his rich palette of color, art and food at Caravane Cafe.... More

I found the service at Caravane Cafe to be good considering that I visited with a large group of students, some of whom were very underdressed, and some who did not eat due to being ill (we were on geography fieldwork, long story). The atmosphere was lovely and the trees in the main courtyard of the restaurant, along with the... More

We have just had supper at Caravane Cafe on the recommendation of a couple of fellow tourists. The staff were extremely friendly, providing excellent service and delicious food. The perfect end to our stay in Essaouira!

We were recommended here by the owner of our Riad and weren't let down. We hadn't booked a table but were there early enough to be seated straight away, my husbandme and our 12 year old. We all loved our meals, my son particularly enjoyed his crab served in the shell. The entertainment was great as per the many other... More

9 of us ate here (incl 5 kids aged 7 - 15) on our last night and weren't expecting that much based on other restaurants we'd tried that had good reviews but the service and food were excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the entertainment - drummers and magician were great. Compared to Elixir which was supposed to be one... More
