5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were fortunate enough to have come across the restaurant almost by accident within the Riad. We booked to visit the following day and being a group of 9 persons, were welcomed like royalty. The service was impeccable and the food even better. I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone visiting Essaouira.

I booked a room at this riad/hotel, on the booking with the agency i chose a room for 3 but i had to check with the hotel if the room will have space for 3 beds. They informed me that they can provide an extra bed for a charge, I'm not sure if this was at the fault of the... More

This hotel is beautiful. They treat you very well and have a great location at the edge of the Medina and walking distance from the ocean. The room was huge and comfortable. The bed was great and had many different weights of blankets for different weather. Breakfast is served on the roof, overlooking the ocean - amazing. Our tour operator... More

Great fish dinner in a beautiful patio. We preordered 3,5kg fish which was excellent prepared with spices, vegetables and rice. Beautiful appetizers and desert (chocolate fondant). Odlična ribja večerja. Naročilo smo 3,5kg ribo dan vnaprej. Bila je odlično pripravljena na lokalni način z začimbami, sočna, s prilogami - riž, zelenjava, polnjeni lignji, malanzani, paprike. Krasne predjedi. Čudovit ambient v atriju.

And the best part were the prices sardines 60, dorada 70 and schrimps 150 dirhams. All dishes inclusive of side dish. Highly recomend. We were a group of 7 and all of us... More

Beautiful Riad close to harbour with a very large rooftop terrace overlooking the bay and the harbour. Good place to have coffee, although there's room for improving the cappuccino. Service is friendly and prices reasonable. Good place to have lunch.

Overall this is a very nice hotel. But there are a few issues. The only blankets they provide are thick comforters that I would use in the winter. The rooms tend to be warm so I ended up asking for extra sheets to get the right comfort level. There is no air-conditioning or heat in the room. All these issues... More

Good afternoon Bescolas, First of all, thank you for your comment. May I ask you in wich type of room where you? All our rooms have underfloor heating, except the ones located on the third floor, due to their position under the terrace they usually are warm enough. Climate in Essaouira is temperate almost all along the four seasons, that's... More

I had occasion to enjoy lunch on the roof top and dinner in the dinning room. The roof top views of the ocean are spectacular and the food is wonderful. The decor of the dining room is very lovely, the food excellent and the service first rate.

I have now been here 4 times and it just gets better and better. The whole establishment is excellent. The rooms are very good but do go for a "comfort room" or better a junior suite, not much more expensive to upgrade yourself and worth every penny. Staff are first class and very nice people, service is the tops. Food... More

Centrally located in the Medina of this seaport town in Morocco. They have great rooms and suites, but do lack central air. The town is known for its beaches, but also its windy conditions so you may not need to worry about ac. The rooms are nicely appointed and decorated with art and pottery, a nice sitting area, bathroom and... More
