“Worth the search!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

The owners are typical quirky Brits producing a simple menu and really good food - especially the home made deserts! the smoothies were a favourite of my daughter, for me the chilli cheeseburger was a big hit. Hidden at the top of the Medina it is well worth the short walk to find it - you won't be disappointed!

“Back again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Back again for the umteenth time can't resist Sharon's wonderful food, my husband is very addicted to Sharon's chocolate cheesecake, don't know what we will do when Sharon returns to the u.k. In a few weeks time, will miss both Sharon & Sandra nothing is too much trouble for them & always cheerful.

“Tasty Mex-Burgers in Essaouira”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

We had some tasty Mex-Burgers here yesterday for lunch. The cafe is run by two very friendly and chatty British women. Quaint and cosy. We will return on our next visit.

“Lovely little corner restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We wanted to go here to eat dinner, but it only opened until lunch, shame... We all four had hamburgers and I tell you what, they were lovely, all of them! On the plate there was not only a hamburger but everything you can imagine! Salad, crisps, onion... Lovely owners and lovely food!
They also offer breakfast and brunch!
