We had such a lovely dinner at restaurant Ramsess. The atmosphere is cozy, the food is delicious, AND they serve wine! The food is a bit more elevated than your typical Moroccan restaurant and their tagine was the best that I've had all week!

Lovely family-owned restaurant with delicious traditional Moroccan dishes at great prices! The atmosphere was very cozy - a small candle lit nook near the front of the restaurant right next to the live music being played that evening, which was a mix of Moroccan, blues and jazz. Zineb, one of the owners, took amazing care of us and even showed... More

I enjoyed escaping the chilly Essaouira wind to have a delicious meal in a cozy, little, candle-lit nook. Zineb, our server was charming and very helpful. When we were finished, my mom wanted to curl up and go to bed right where we were sitting.

this is a lovely restaurant - run by a gang of sisters and aunties all working hard but always happy to help with a big smile. We tried some authentic Moroccan dishes we hadn't seen in other places and they were delicious. Very good value and lovely atmosphere.

We ate here twice during our week in Essaouirra. Not only was the food fantastic but the service also. On our 2nd visit it was my wife's birthday and they went out of their way to make it a very special evening. There was live music on both occasions, which made for a great atmosphere. The home cooked food is... More

We happened upon this place by chance lured by the music and promise of her mom's homemade cooking:) It was the best food we had in over a week in Morocco - absolutely delicious! The setting was small, charming and authentic Moroccan. Great fresh seafood :) Excellent service

Ramsess is surely the best restaurant in Essaouira! The food is perfectly freshly made, and always delicious! This time I also attended the cooking class, and learnt how to make the special bread if the house, and the selection of Moroccan cooked salads. I totally recommend that you give this a go!

We ate here our first night in Essaouira and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere. Our waitress was French and lovely and helpful. There was a band playing what I would think was modern Moroccan music and they were very good. The food was also good and wine was able to be ordered. I would certainly recommend this restaurant
