Went here on the basis of positive TA reviews. Nice, quiet place, very clean, with decent Moroccan food and a few international specials. Portions were large and prices reasonable. The owner was friendly in an unobtrusive sort of way. He told us that they had not been allowed to sell wine for a few weeks so it was soft drinks... More

the restaurant is small but very nicely decorated, Same owner than the cle de voute, this is a good restaurant, better decoration and more romantic, I recommend the tartare of sea bream, portion are good and food is good almost great. I refer the cle de voute but both are worse trying You wont be deceived.

My girlfriend and I happened upon this idyllic, quaint and homely restaurant whilst searching for a different venue. The host, Mohammed was most welcoming and immediately the hospitality struck us. We arrived during the ftour period of Ramadan yet they were so friendly and the service was second to none. Great fillet of beef for me and the GF loved... More

The food is excellent and cooked to order. The menu has a good range of options. There are not many tables but that adds to the atmosphere. The wine list had a good choice and the prices were reasonable. It is not on a main street but not that far from the ramparts. It is the quality of food that... More

The ambiance was very nice and the photography on the walls was very beautiful, capturing Essaouira perfectly. The staff was very friendly! The food was good, but not great; we've had better meals in Essaouira for the same price. I got the seafood couscous and while the vegetables were very good, the fist was hard to find and some of...
