“Little Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

We were very pleased to eat at this little bistro just off one of the main streets. The pigeon pastilla was excellent; crisp filo pastry and a good balance of sweet and savoury. My friends fish dish was also excellent.

“As fresh and local as you can get!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Delicious homemade food with fresh ingredients and friendly staff in the Essaouira medina. Frederique and her team greet you with a smile and a daily specials menu of dishes made from and inspired by local ingredients and cuisine. As much as possible of the menu is homemade and many ingredients are sourced from local farms, cooperatives and associations. We sat outside in the shade of the alleyway. Inside, the restaurant is small but cosy. The restaurant is also a good address to inform yourself about walks around the local countryside, visiting argan oil cooperatives and local Berber families. Wifi is available.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

I went back three times in one week to this tiny restaurant with its very hospitable staff. The chicken pastilla was the best I've ever had!

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Quite limited menu but good food, the pastilla was really freshly made and crusty. Room is a bit small and not set for a long romantic evening though.

“Nice food, friendly owners”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

The food is nice with reasonable sized portions. The pricing is reasonable and the setting is cute, not many tables though so you probably need to book if you're not arriving early. They have different specials everyday so the variety is good. Not just Moroccan food on offer....you can get spagetti and other specialties.
