We were attracted to this restaurant by its advert in the Essaouira town guide for pre-dinner tapas, after finding the typical tagine or couscous menus becoming a little monotonous. The tapas and accompanying wine were truly delicious and excellent value, so we decided on the spot to return the following evening for dinner. And were delighted. Food, wine, ambiance and decor were all original, distinctive and really good. Francoise Gasquet, the proprietaire, speaks very clear French and was happy to chat. She has been in Morocco for 13 years and and also runs a tea-room nearby (and somewhat easier to find) called Au Bonheur des Dames. Al Farachah is a relatively new venture and is quite tucked away down a side street, but well worth tracking down. For food of this quality it's excellent value - our bill for two people was MAD600 (€55) for three courses, wine and coffee. .
