Cute, buzzy, healthy and welcoming. Tucked away is the tiny Triskala cafe. I jumped in and ordered an orange and fennel smoothie, smoked sardine salad with avocado and a mint tea. All were delicious, simple but perfectly executed. Pop in and chill the F out!

I stayed in Essaouira for 6 weeks this winter and returned to Triskala regularly bringing along groups of friends. The food is consistently great and very reasonable. It's an ever changing menu depending on what's fresh but my highlight was the swordfish with quince tagine. I love the fresh juice and the fact that they are no plastics, you won't... More

We traveled with our son who is vegan throughout Morocco, he found this restaurant for our last night in Essaouira and it was a good choice. The restaurant was vegan friendly with a eco sensitive attitude which I really appreciated. The group ordered a variety of food which we all enjoyed.

We (a couple) walk into Triskala. Amazing ambient, Pink Floyd playing, pictures of Jimi Hendrix on the wall, candles lit. Simply amazing. The owner greets us and leads us to our spot. No questions asked, just a nice gesture. The waitress brings us the menu. There are 3 starters, 4 main dishes and 1 desserts to choose from. We liked... More

The cooking here really stands out in Essaouira. It is unusual and very carefully done. The decor is unusual to say the least, and the night we were there the music was great if you like Pink Floyd - which I do. We are going again tonight and it is the only place we are visiting twice. Enough said?

We were advised that this was a good restaurant for a vegetarian and we were not disappointed. It is also good for fish dishes. Each night (closed on Sunday) it is a different menu using fresh local produce and fish. The dishes are beautifully presented and consist of extremely well complemented ingredients. The flavours are to dream for. The surroundings... More

A really nice and quaint restaurant, serving only vegetarian food and fish, all fresh and local. Is the catch of the day from essaouira port good? Then it's fish on the menu. Is it not? Then there's no fish. The menu changes daily; two entrees, 3 or 4 mains and 1 dessert (mostly) and 1 juice of the day (I... More

We felt lucky to find this place and went back again for a few consecutive evenings. Lovely healthy and tasty food with smiley service. Homemade juice very good. Menu changes every day. Red mullet tagine was best ever.

We loved our evening meal at La Triskalla. A very good range of vegetarian and fish options which suited us. It's a limited menu, but done to perfection! Be sure to pop in and book ahead as there are not many tables and it's very popular.

Thank Geranibub
