“a gem!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

A gem of a restaurant in the back streets of Essaouira, near the sea wall. Intimate and warm
atmosphere and excellent choices on the menu, lovely food and friendly service from Lawrence and his staff. I have used this resataurant for several years now and it is thriving, so much so that Lawrence's wife Liliana has opened a new restaurant called Le Cle de Voute in the next street. I will be sure to try that on my next visit.
In a town where restaurants can be iffy I wholeheartedly recommend this one - good food and good value!

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

Small place but nicely presented. The 2 members of staff were amazing- this was without doubt the best service that we received in Morocco.

In the UK, I would rate the food as average, but by Morocco standards it was good. I had a seafood pasta which was nice, but nothing that you couldnt make yourself at home. My boyfriend was much happier with his goats cheese salad starter and his sea bass main course.

I really wanted to give this place 5 stars, because the staff were so fantastic, but the food didnt reach our expectations.

“interesting menu, delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

I have eaten here three times, and each dinner has been very good and the meat cooked as ordered. The kefta with cream sauce is a nice twist on a Moroccan theme, and the chicken pastilla and creme brulee (lavender or mocha) should not be missed. The prices are right, too. Enjoy!
