My wife and I have visited this traditional Moroccan restaurant on previous visits to Essaouira. Our last was almost 2 years ago so imagine our surprise when, as we were walking to the restaurant the owner moved towards us and greeted us, clearly remembering our...More

The lobster was delicious, fresh and really tender. Good food for good money, though nothing special.

Was planning to go to Caravanne - but looked expensive and entertainment off-putting. So found here instead and had a lovely dinner. Set meal at 80Dhm delicious: stuffed sardines, chicken pastille and crepes.

Really nice little family run restaurant with an owner that is well versed in catering for allergies ("Tolerance for intolerances"?). Lovely food. Ask for rice instead of couscous if required. No drinks menu but they did have fresh orange juice available.

Great authentic Moroccan food rustled up in a tiny kitchen by expert cook Rachida. Very welcoming owner who makes you feel at home. Seafood dishes especially good with fresh fish, calamari etc from the harbour. It is our favourite place to eat in Essaouira.

This is a small restaurant the gets busy quickly. The fish tajines main was superb and the sardine starters small and very tasty. Service very friendly
