The restaurant is located in an old vault, nicely decorated. the service is friendly and attentive. We had very good fresh fish(monk fish) and an interesting starter. We liked especially the special of the day, grilled red mullets. A nice change from the brochettes and Tajines the days before.

The restaurant is near the fish market, and it is literally tiny ... It has 6 tables if I am not wrong. Food was very good, in fact, my chicken with prunes tajin was one of the best, if not the best, during all my vacations in Morocco. I think they close around 10pm so better be there early. Prices...

Tiny little gem, hidden behind the spice souk, see picture. Opens from 7pm for dinner, only has 4 tables, low cramped seating for those with long legs BUT worth it, lovely romantic atmosphere, make a reservation as it fills up quickly. Moroccon food including a grill, which is just outside cooking various meats. Family run. Starters from 8 dirhams and... More

We visited Miyame on the recommendation of our riad and we were not disappointed. It is situated down an alley just off the main shopping street so it's very central and the brochettes are cooked on a grill outside the restaurant beckoning the traveller with wonderful smells. It's a very small, narrow family-run restaurant with only about six tables and... More

Tiny homely restaurant down a backstreet in Essaouira. Great, fresh, home cooked food at very reasonable prices. 2 soft drinks, 1 salad to start & 2 mains came to 145MAD.

We had been recommended to go to this restaurant but kept trying to reserve too late to be told it was fully booked. When we finally got in it was well worth the wait. Delicious Moroccan dishes cooked from fresh local produce at a reasonable price. The place is run by a very smiley and friendly family, all of whom... More

This was well recommended and justifiably so. Small cosy and friendly. I opted for the beef tagine with prunes and fruit. It is quite a different type of tagine to the usual meat and veg built into a cone. It was a real mix of fruit and meat flavours.

Miyame is a cozy restaurant - as others described it too - it is a hole in the wall. The personnel was very friendly and the food good vs price. The restaurant was a bit off from where it seems to be on the map via tripadvisor.

It is well worth persevering to find this authentic Moroccan restaurant. This is a tiny little place with a really delightful charm to it. The menu is small, however everything is particularly well cooked and very fresh. We were crammed into a tiny space, but enjoyed this fabulous home-cooked fare more than anywhere else on the tourist route. We even... More
