Great food.

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.

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

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

We ate on the roof terrace above a busy medina street, the call to prayer provided the acompaniament to a lovely meal. The host was very nice as was the waitress. Toilets were the best some of the best we had come across. Fish and Pastilla to die for. Prices very good.

We dropped by to check the menu in the morning and ordered the pigeon pastilla for that evening - one of the most delicious meals we have ever had. The owner is very friendly and welcoming and was delighted to see us .

We found this restaurant by chance. We saw a tripadvisor 2013 winner sign at the entrance and were not disapppointed. We followed the recommendations of the chef de la cuisine and enjoyed an amazing dinner! The fish was excellent and the dessert a dream. Overall, it was a very nice evening and the food the best we had during our... More
