This won't be to everyone's liking, as it's a hard sell with the various grill stands competing for your business. Like us, you'll end up getting a mix of things you want, and things you ask about which somehow end up on your plate! We went to the first stand on the right, and had good fun with the g... More

Had lunch a few days ago. 25 euros approx for 2 persons - includes bread, salad, water. I didn't know what to pick so sales guy made a selection on a tray and then told me the price . Its hard sell but still plenty of banter etc and good fun. Couldn't afford it every day but should be experienced... More

The sales guys who try to drag you in are argumentative and put off many clients. I was charged 120 dirhams for a small dorade, french fries, an excellent simple salad, and a large bottle of water. The grilled fish was marvellous. The female cook was very pleasant. Perhaps they should have more women and less testosterone at the front... More

There must be something wrong with the food here, because they are desperate to try and get you to eat here, blocking your way as you pass by. This put me off so I didn't eat here. Maybe it's ok but I suspect you would be overcharged.

When visiting Essaouria a trip to the grills is a must , choose the fresh fish from a display stand and it will be grilled for you served with a lovely salad and bread, Negotiate a price first and im sure you will have a memorable meal.

When I was last in Essaouria 10 years ago this was quite different and a really cheap place to eat and enjoy the fruits of the sea. They are now set up as permanent "restaurants" with every owner after your Dirhams. The seafood it self was great and nicely cooked but I did think it was very overpriced unfortunately, pity....

We dhad lunch at the Grill a week ago. The food was OK, excluding grilled squid, which was excellent. Service was quick, unintrusive and professional. Howver, $120 for the lunch of 3 was way too expensive.

With all the fresh fish around it is a must do. However the hassle encountered is off putting. You get a soft drink, salad and bread with your choice of fish, freshly cooked on a BBq type grill - makes a nice lunch stop.
