What a fantastic restaurant. We were very lucky to stumble upon this place. The food was excellent, very tasty and reasonably priced. The service was also excellent. We had lunch here and I can honestly say that this was the best meal we had eaten in the six days we had been in Morocco. I would strongly recommend this place.

Delicious food and the owner and his staff couldn't have been more helpful. Wine is available, but served in glasses in the kitchen so bottles are not on display. A great relaxing place in Essaouira

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here and would recommend the food very highly. No wine or beer but my partner had an alcoholic mohito that he enjoyed! Very well presented dishes and we had a great conversation with the waiter about all manner of world affairs!

Absolutely first class food and really nice server, nicely decorated with photographs which is part of the theme of the place as they do offer photography courses. Very fairly priced for the quality of the food you get, highly recommend.

So this place no longer serves beer or wine (stringent licensing it seems), but who needs booze when the food is so amazing. And of course this is a Muslim country so good to conform. An 'amuse bouché' in place of the usual plate of olives sets the scene. French owned and decorated with images of Cuba, food here offers... More

We spent New Years Eve in Essaouira and didn't have a clue where to have dinner. We stumbled into a small street and looked on the menu of small restaurant. The fact that the Waite didn't pressure us to com inside was very pleasant surprise. Inside, we found a very sweet little restaurant run by a French photographer who also... More

We had a super Christmas Day dinner here. The service was excellent, very relaxing ambience. The food was delicious, with highlights being fish couscous, pastilla and chocolate fondant.
