We visited Essaouira yesterday and were making our way to Elizir. We were having trouble finding it, so we stopped and asked at at hotel and they alerted us the restaurant was closed- not sure if its a permanent closure, but wanted to share with any Trip Advisor adventurers heading that way!

My husband and I the pleasure of having dinner at Elizir. The food is perfect and so tasty. The atmosphere at the restaurant is cosy and fun, with all the different interior. Definitely not the last time we visit.

A nice house in a side street off the main road. Lots of little rooms - and we were in the first room on the left. Only two table sin here and a log fire - so quite cosy. Nice food and worth the visit.

We went here as a treat for my birthday meal a) as it looked a bit special and b) it served wine. I was a bit unsure looking at the prices, as we had eaten well up to then for a lot less, but we went in to see. The interior was quite bizarre - I think another reviewer compared... More

Having decided to try Elizir, we also chose it for our last evening meal before going home as it was our favourite and there are many good restaurants to choose from. It was such a lovely mix of brilliant decor, food, intimacy and service. Please go before it closes if you have a chance. Hoping it's not the last time... More

In the traditions of all the best restauranteurs, and after 10 incredible years, Latif is closing the doors on Elizir at the end of May 2016. We first came here two days after he opened and have had so many evenings here, all of them wonderful. Tonight's dinner was tinged with sadness at the news but joy that we had... More

I wondered in to this place and was blown away by the decor and style of the restaurant. To me it was like being on a movie set - very cool. The food is good, especially the black squid risotto.

We had one night in Essaouria and chose to eat at Elizir after reviewing the recommendations from both our Riad and also trip advisor and certainly were not disappointed with our choice. Food was great and the restaurant setting was very differs from your standard restaurant. Would definitely recommend.

Probably my favourite restaurant in Essaouira. Completely original decor. Crammed with retro furnishings and objects mean there is always something interesting to look at. Small but excellent menu. Food tasty and we'll prepared. Alcohol available
