We loved it here from the moment we walked in. We were greeted so warmly and immediately felt at home in the restaurant. We both had the Moroccan Salad to start and then I had the fish of the day and my boyfriend had the chicken. Both were served with nice which the host told us is her mothers recipe - best rice I have ever had! The portions were very generous. While eating we were treated to music by the family band who played beautifully and chatted to us about their music etc. another couple were there who had been customers of the restaurant for 12 years. Overall I say make a point to come to this wonderful place for a night to remember on Essaouira.
