Feels like the cheap copy of Elizir. But to be fair, we only had a coffee there which was really good :-) ...

Bohemian clientele, delights prepared from worldly cuisines, happy to see you. We lived it. Make a reservation and go while you are here. Best experience we had in Essaouira.

Enjoyed local fish here. Lovely courtyard with many shrubs and gas heaters surrounded by small dining areas, also a 2nd floor. Live music later in the evening but not overpowering. The owner/manager was very charming with perfect English.

A mixed menu so great if one of you wants something european and the other wants something more asian. One of the few places to serve wine (and nice wine at that) and the staff are lovely and friendly. The music gave the place a great atmosphere, perfect for a fun evening out and they give you extra treats to... More

The restaurant is located in a riad just off the main road. There are tables in the courtyard and in four or five "chambres séparées" around the courtyard, The decoration is completely wacky and provides for hours of conversation. The food is good, especially the simpler dishes such as the chicken with dry fruits while the "fusion" dishes tend to... More

We ate here on our last night in Essaouria, the staff were all very friendly and attentive. The decor of the restaurant is extremely distinctive and colourful. The food we felt was a little over fussy - fish came smothered in a buttery sauce that was probably not really needed and it's quite pricey overall. Having said that though it's... More

The food was wonderful and this was the first place we had good Moroccan wine. The live music - three local teens playing a mix of international slow jams - was a nice touch and the restaurant sent them up to serenade us personally mid meal. The kitschy decor is fun, if a little out of place in Morocco. Overall,... More

What a find! This place was recommended by our riad owner who told us this was the best restuarant in Essaouira and we were not disappointed. Set in a former riad the restuarant has a cool bohemian vibe with Moroccan, Oriental and Americana style decor. The food is a sublime Morocco/French/Asian fusion and my meal was one of the tastiest... More
