We were really disappointed with this restaurant. It was expensive and we did not really have a lot to eat, nor was it extra-tasty for the price. We paid two times what we paid in other restaurants during the week we spent at Essaouira. Maybe it's more for tourist looking for an easy place than for people who really want... More

We chose the restaurant because of the nice terrace overviewing the medina. Although we were alone in the restaurant, the food took a bit, but the taste was really good - a lot of fresh fish and seafood. It was not cheap for Morocco, but one cannot expect moderate prices in places like medina of Essaouira where millions of tourists... More

Well the restaurant was very nice very clean and the taste of the tagine was good. Small portion of chicken. The rooftop really doesn't have a view until you look over the side. It would have been great but my husband ordered a drink and got ice in it. I had a bottle of coke. We shared our meals. We... More

Super fresh fish! Not too expensive. Life singer. Food is excellent and worth a visit. Don't order meat here. But why would you in a fish restaurant. Loooong waiting time. Order some Bread in front.

We ate lunch at Restauant des Reves on our last day. It is not the sort of restaurant we would normally visit as it is a bit touristy. Even though we were the only people in the restaurant, the service was excellent and friendly and the owner came and introduced himself. The food greatly surpassed expectations and was one of...

We were looking for somewhere to sit out for lunch in Essaouira. Most places in the medina mean being inside or are quite big with predictable menus. My daughter remembered being told to always look up as there are often gems whose little side doorways hide a fabulous old building inside - we did look up and we did find... More

My son and I had dinner here on our first evening at Essaouira. The food was great but the service was special. Our waitress went out of her way to make our dinner special. The chicken pastille had a cinnamon spice which was surprisingly tasty. The Chicken Tangene had a lot of meat and was very flavorful. If you eat... More

As many other tourists before us we met this "random" Moroccon lady in the streets of the town and as we had little of time and the joint we were heading towards to was far away we gave it a shot even though we knew we could regret it. However, the TripAdvisor badge on the door calmed us down and... More
