we happened upon this fantastic hotel when wandering around the medina, and found ourselves sitting down to dinner in the lobby (straight out of some romantic movie about life in the semi-tropics with huge plants and comfortable couches) - we were a bit worried about the cost but found that our dinner was extremely reasonable, especially given that it was...

Breakfast was included in our room tariff and was quite acceptable. Compared with other included breakfasts in Morocco this was a stand out.

We were looking for O'Bleue which is highly recommended in trip advisor. However, we ended up being directed here and later found out that where we were looking for was not open until later. Nevertheless, the location looked attractive and the food at L'Heuer Bleue was excellent

Rumoured to be the best restaurant in town, maybe food wise, but value for money, questionable. The restaurant is based in Riad Heurre Bleue, a very exclusive Riad so a very personalised service set in wonderful surroundings. The trimmings you get are as expected from a high end establishment and from the start it augured well, my starters sardines the... More

I saw this restaurant on travellers choice and we have been there for dinner. Dishes were great. The staff was helpful. I can suggest chicken tajinn and their homemade wines. Local live music was amazing.

Extremely helpful waiter, excellent serrvice, beautiful food presented most attractively. We chose the salt baked fish and watching the waiter serve it was brilliant - a real art form. We could not fault it at all. The atmosphere is lovely too. Not cheap but well worth it. Lunches here are excellent too.

the place and ambience correspond well to Relais & Chateau fine dining, , it's calm, clearly for Europeans (rather senior, rather slightly above avg income couples), which might not be bed as you can be pretty sure, that you will probably avoid "slippers", shorts, or "half naked" sun burnt europeans widely to be seen elsewhere. Service is pretty good and... More

As accidental passers by we walked past the relatively anonymius facade of this hotel and restaurant. Tired of the limited menus of the local Maroccan restaurants we where surprised by the the choice offered and the quality. Absolutely the best in town! Interior alone is worth a visit and yhe staff could teach their collegues how it should be done.... More

Sort out what is supposed to be ,according to many travel guides, the best eating place in Essouria.First impressions were very good, a beautiful setting,very green,attentive staff and nice eating area.Pity the food did not live up to expectataions.Overpriced menu,wines and slow service better valkue and food in other restuarants. Would not go back.
