“Two amazing meals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Amazing restaurant. The seafood tajine and kefta tajine were incredible. So good we ate he two nights in a row. Don't mess around when you find somewhere this good. After the meal they bought us a shisha pipe to smoke after everyone had stopped eating and gone home in the restaurant. Very friendly service and lovely atmosphere. Highly recommended.

“Awonderful welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

This little place seemed just off the main track of all the shops so a little hard to find perhaps but well worth the search. A really warm and friendly welcome and very tasty food, cooked freshly to order. Great value for money. You must eat here if you are in Essaouira.

“great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Great food in a rather European style. Nice familly-run restaurant. Certainly recommended for a quality dinner.

“Amazing atmosphere, food and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Restaurant Ramsess is just fantastic! Zineb was a kind attentive host welcoming us to her small intimate candlelit restaurant. The atmosphere was relaxing and romantic, with un intrusive yet prompt service and faultless food. Well priced and worth every penny. We think of ourselves as real foodies and wouldn't hesitate to return.

“New Year's Eve”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

There was a set menu for the evening, understandable and pretty filling too! A lobster bisque to start, then goat's cheese pastries, poussins with an orange sauce and then a pudding, followed by more cake at midnight. All the dishes were nicely prepared and tender. The restaurant is run by women - it is fascinating to watch them at work. The mother smiles rarely, one of the girls seems to do all the work, her sister not quite so much - leading to an argument - and if I have got the relationships right, every now and then the father wanders round asking everyone if they are happy! We had a lovely luth player during part of the evening and then a local band in between. It is difficult to judge a restaurant based on a fixed menu but we could not fault the food!
