“Nice vibe, ok food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

Nice chilled out atmosphere, with lots of surfer types, but also families and young kids. There are loungers and outside sofas, as well as more typical outdoor tables and chairs.

The food was average, but what can you really expect from a beach cafe? In any case, makes a nice change to the type of stuff in old town essaouira.

Best place to stop if you are doing the walk from old town to the submerged ruins (jimi Hendrix, castles in the sand) around 2km out of town.

“Good chillout place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Nice place to chill out by the beach. Range of decent snacky moroccan and western options, and an ice-cold beer. Friendly service, on the day we were there.

“Zen!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Loved this place so chillled out either in the day relaxing in the sun or night by the outside fire on the settees with good background music or some nights live music. Direct on the beach with the local camel, horse rides mixed with the quad bikes and of ourse the kite surfers.

Good food and lots of variety a great change from the local food on your travels.

Essaouira is the place in Morocco for us :)
