Good fish

buy your own fish from the market first ( make sure you bargain fir the fish first, it’s a must! ) and then let the fish grill stall to grill it for you, you will pay for salad and drinks when you enjoy your fish!

Once we checked into our medina and after a 10min walk thru the busy medina we ended up in this little square for some local speciality. Now I've been here before so was expecting the what happened but bless my wife, it was her first time and it was hilarious watching all the stall owners (men) trying to convince (lightly... More

We are lovers of fresh fish and this was the best place to experience it! We picked our preferrd fishh ( shrimp,lobster, etc) and they weighed it and cooked it on charcoal grills right before our eyes. Absolutely delicious!

Once you get past the salesmen in their white coats, haggle hard for an enormous lunch of fish & seafood straight off the boats in the harbour. Prices constant across the market, but easy to haggle down on the cooking and service. Tip: take some wipes for your hands, as it is best to eat with your hands!

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

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.
