“Nicest food I've eaten yet.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

The other reviews are correct, the service is excellent, food is delicious and very good value. Starters 20-30 dh mains 40-60 . You leave feeling full but fresh. Cosy and relaxed decor, mixing Moroccan with a few retro pieces, the more you look the more you find to like.

“Cosy restaurant with excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

This small and cosy restaurant provides a relaxed and vaguely hippyish feel with a full and varied non-meat (vegetarian and fish) menu. There was a variety of seating areas, and the food was individually prepared, and delicious! We strongly recommend the chocolate cake for pudding, quote "one of the nicest chocolate cakes ever!".

“Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, simple and tasty food. Great value for money.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Healthy and fresh, a welcome break from bland and overcooked tagines. We had the goats cheese salad and tabouille which were both delicious. Prawn pasta was ok and the falafel mezze accompanied with raisin and herb bread was fantastic. We had both the chocolate tarte and apple tarte and they were both really great.

Fun interior design and really nice staff. Quick, efficient and polite.

Try the fruit juices too. Three course dinner for 2 for 220 dirham - bargain. Would definitely come back.

“Good value food, great ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Tucked away on the cobbled streets, Triskala cafe is a great find. The menu is hand written and is inexpensive, tasty and original. It definitely has a bit of a hippy vibe with bob dylan pictures and 60s/70s music, but that adds to the feel of the place. The juices are original and fresh (even if mine wasn't quite to my liking), and apparently the desserts are great although we didn't indulge this time. Would definitely go again.

“cool decor, excellent food, good value, great ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Returning to Essaouira after almost two decades we loved the authentic 60's decor which was stylish cool retro without the usual hippy slant. The food was excellent, presentation and content very pleasing, as were the prices. The service was friendly with minimum fuss so relaxing. We ate there twice in 6 days despite strong competition from such a variety of venues in the town. Definitely one to recommend
