This place was recommended to us and it was certainly not a disappointment. The food was delicious and presented beautifully. The calimari was perfectly cooked! A lovely setting to eat in too - great asthetics, really well decorated. Live music entertained us and added to the authentic maroc/french vibe.

⁃ Location - Caravane Café is located inside of the Medina of Essaouira. You can acces the alley of the restaurant via the main street of the medina. You will pass a lot of shops before reaching Caravan Cafe but most owners are not pushy at all. ⁃ Restaurant - You might think "where the hell did I end up"... More

The Caravane Cafe was a great find in Essaouira. We loved the food, the ambience, the music and the staff. If you're looking for a break from the shops and hawkers in the Medina this is the place to go.

This is a great place to eat. The ambiance is amazing. It is just off of the main strip in the old walled city. You can eat in the lovely interior square with a live band (and outdoor heaters on cold days) or inside. The menu is a nice mix of French, Moroccan, Indian and West Indian fare. Each dish... More

Great atmosphere at this cafe/restaurant - great art and music, very friendly staff and owner. We went here first during the day time for drinks, it was quiet and great place to chill out. Went back in the evening when it was much more lively, with awesome live music.

This place was recommended by the Riad where we were staying. At first I thought it might be a bit too touristy and it is certainly there for us tourists, however, it is very different to other places. Beautiful interior with central courtyard and a number of dining areas within the two story building. We were seated in a beautiful... More
