We went with 3 adults and 4 children. The food was nice enough, but the attitude to our kids was snooty at best. An acquaintance of ours was playing guitar and whilst waiting for the food the kids would go over to watch, the staff kept shushing them and ushering them out of the way. The restaurant was not busy... More

The place is really nice, in the middle of Essaouira. The food is very good, the owner and the staff are friendly and the environment is good. The only thing is not good is that you are allowed to smoke inside like most of the places there.

It's a nice little place with a reasonably priced menu but we were not impressed by the food. We had the seafood pastilla, the kefta tajine and an assortment of moroccan salads none of which were very good. For moroccan food, there are far better choices elsewhere in essaouira.

We ended up here by accident, as our other choices were closed! This was by far our best meal in Essaouira - Moroccan food, but with a creative twist. The wine was also very reasonably priced...the win we were drinking was 160 dh, where we had been charged 230 dh for it elsewhere. Def worth a visit!

The food here was fantastic. A mixture of Moroccan and seafood. The pastille and tajine were brilliant and the brioullets to start were superb. Live music also!

This place was recommended by our guide and it was excellent. The menu is typically Moroccan with some regional specialties and seafood. Beer and wine is available at good prices. There was a female vocalist who sang beautifully and unobstrusively. The atmosphere is very attractive with several side rooms with two or three tables. We ate in one of them... More

We went here with another couple for dinner. Food was good, but not the best we had. Also a bit pricey. But for a nice night out with some wine a live music good :) set menu price and wine list was good! The owner is a unique. She is quite crumpy but that's part of the experience, right?
