We had a great time in this restaurant and I can only recommend to have dinner here if you are in town. I personally loved the Kefta. The prices are vert reasonable.

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

Lovely little restaurant with very tasty food and good wines. Enjoyed the seafood pastilla and the vegetable couscous was sublime.

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...

You get great value at this restaurant as not only do you get wonderful food with friendly service in a tastefully designed restaurant but you are also surrounded by the superb and inspiring photography of owner Lawrence Quammu. Of the many restaurants we tried in Essaouira this was one of our favourites and meeting Lawrence and talking about his photos... More

We dined at this restaurant twice and had excellent food each time - in fact the monkfish dish I had was one of the best I've ever had anywhere (including the excellent Le Gavroche in London). The decor is warm and relaxing and the service welcoming and friendly, but at the same time, highly professional. We wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant.
