“A little overrated but "très sympha"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2011

We live part-time in Essaouira and have heard rave reviews about it from other. We were a little disappointed by the food, especially since we found the prices not adequate for the quality. But that was compensated for by the lovely owners who would substitute this for that, would make special meals for special needs etc. We will definitely give it another try.

Arrived without a booking and luckily found a table for two. Service was very good and the food top quality. Definitely a must if in town!
WIFI a bonus.

“A beautiful dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2011

Not the easiest place to find but certainly the best dining experience I had in Morocco. The venue is beautifully decorated with lots of subtle finishing touches. The staff were efficient and friendly. And the food was amazing. Tender lamb with tasty vegetables and fluffy cous cous. It's what I went to Morocco for but I only found it cooked to this standard at this restaurant. Even the toilets are immaculate with indiviual hand towels rather than the customary tissues we found everywhere else.

If you visit Essaouira you really must eat here.

“excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2011

Wonderful place, the food is just so much better then anywhere we've been eating in Morocco, a combination of French en Maroccan cuisine, hidden in the north corner of the old town, just close to the Skala de la Kasbah. The owner is very friendly and knows his wines to go with the food!

The white wine from Essaouira, bottom of the list, was a real surprise!
