A very welcoming and charming restaurant in the Medina. Good vibes, very friendly atmosphere and most of all a very simple concept: vegetarian, no plastic bottles, local veggies and fish and good karma. The owner will sit down with you and take the time to explain. Priceless. We will go back.

This was the perfect dining experience for us. The restaurant is very well laid out and furnished, with a great ambience and open kitchen. The service was prompt, friendly yet unobtrusive. The menu was small yet appealing and the food delicious and well priced. I can't fault this place.

I highly suggest making your way here during your stay in Essaouira. The atmosphere is wonderful. It's cozy, eclectic and romantic. The staff was really friendly, the food fresh, creative and delicious! The menu is switched up every day, but from what I found, you really can't go wrong. A wonderful option for vegetarians.

We have stayed in lovely Essaouira for the past 7 years, close to this Restaurant, and have never visited, although we would have walked past it every day over that time. So, this year we booked a table for 7pm. Arrived 10 minutes early to be met by what I assume was the rude French Owner, who was very unhappy... More

Vaulted ceilings with tucked away tables on different levels and interesting decor lent this restaurant a lot of charm. No alcohol is served but a bottle of water with mint is put on table on arrival. Menu was small with three/four choices to each course and I understand it changes daily according to fresh produce available. I had the leek... More

A great vegetarian menu that offered fresh and tasty dishes in the Medina. Funky decor created cosy corners and a very relaxing vibe.

The cafe has an amazing interior and the food was fresh, tasty and the menu changes every day. However the salad (knowing the price of food in the market) could have been a bit larger and more adventurous while the service was rude and blunt at times - we arrived a bit before service and they were very annoyed. Worth... More

The place was recommended by our hotel and we enjoyed every bit of the food, which was mostly vegan and vegetarian. We had a platter of Moroccan salads, which was delicious with the fresh juice we ordered. The only thing which we disliked was the permeating smell of fried food which we carried in our clothes for the next 2... More

After our lovely terrace with a port view meal at Resto Al Fath we five wanted a warmer place to have a simple tea. I had remembered the cafe from our previous night's wanderings so I headed there with gps guiding me roughly. We five arrived at 10pm roughly and explained to the French owner (from Toulouse) we had eaten... More
