“Good for a chill-out but average food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Ocean Vagabond on the beach shares the same name as a boutique hotel much nearer to town but I've no idea whether they're connected. There's absolutely nothing pretentious about this place and it serves reasonable food to lots of people in a relaxed, chilled setting right on the beach. The paninis we had were fine but nothing to write home about.

“Great place to hang out by the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We came here every day of our five night stay in Essaouira. Great, informal lunches with lots of choice and daily changing specials, usually including some nice fresh fish. Wood fired pizzas also good. Nice relaxed atmosphere and plenty of seats for relaxing in the sun before or after a meal (or in our case, before and after!).

“Chill out place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

This is a great place to relax in a beach chair and watch the scene on the beach. There are horses, camels, kite surfers and more to view. The food was good and the staff were friendly.
