“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

My sister recommended the place to me and for once it was good to listen to her.

This place offers absolutely fantastic fusion food in an intimate setting.
There are not many tables which adds to the distinct atmosphere.

The food was probably the best we've had in our two weeks Marocco. Especially the monk fish tartar with limes was outstanding.

If you want something different than the tajines and couscous this is certainly the place to go as the food is delivered with excellence and creativity hardly found elsewhere in Marocco.

If you are in essaouira - try it out!

“Awesome Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

We spent two nights in Essaouira and we just did not want to try any other restaurants in town.
The Service and the food are one of a kind.

And..... the Moroccan Seafood Pastilla ???? is a must. ENDULGE YOURSELF.

“Great little restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Ate here twice during our stay in Essaouira- excellent both times (fusion of Moroccan and French styles), and attentive service but probably helps if you speak French. Veal in particular was excellent. Highly recommended and good value given the quality of the food. Also try it's 'sister' restaurant, La Clé de Voute, which is run by the wife of the owner of this restaurant.

“YUM!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

A lovely little restaurant we stumbled upon near our Riad and surprised us with its scrumptious food. We had the avocado and tomato salad for starters - divine and the fish of the day for main. My goodness me, it was the nicest most delightful white fish I've had with a simple lemony cream dressing on the side, well presented and prepared vegetables. The wine is very nice, local and well priced. Wish I could go back!

“Romantic ambiance, good food & music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We enjoyed a memorable dinner at this restaurant. Food was well prepared, service was friendly and prompt. The atmosphere is cozy, calm and romantic. We especially enjoyed the music, which the owner was happy to introduce us to. Would go back if we had more time in Essaouira.
