A friendly restaurant with a great menu. The harera soup was superb and the chicken cous cous was cooked to perfection. I can't wait to dine there again.

We picked this restaurant randomly as we wandered the medina. You must climb three flights of stairs to get to the terrace dining area, but you get a great view of the medina. We arrived around 9pm and ordered the "Paella aux fruits de mer" for two. It took at least 45 minutes for the food to arrive, but it... More

Great location, on one of the long shopping streets. Inside is very clean and well presented. Terrace is basic, but pleasant.

What wonderful food and ambience, with excellent service. We had tried restaurants in Tangier and Marrakech - but Restaurant Des Reves in Essaouira wins hands down. The menu was full of traditional tasty food and the waiter was able to discuss all the menu items with us in English, which really assisted our choices. The fresh seafood in Essaouira was... More

We stopped for a casual lunch after shopping in Essaouira. The food was delicious and very well priced. Service was excellent and we sat on the terrace with a really nice view over the medina. We were also invited to see the kitchen and it was seriously one of the cleanest kitchens ive ever seen. Would definitley recommend!!

Had our last night here in this restaurant. Food was delicious - best tagines, best fish and great service. We even were able to organise a birthday cake for our guide Aziz - staff said no problem and then produced a lovely sponge cake with candles.

We had a good meal. The waiters were lovely even though we moved tables twice as it cooled during the evening. Food was good.

The food was good especially the fruits de mer gratin which was a stand out dish. The monkfish was well cooked but the vegetables as is often the case were overcooked and somewhat tasteless. The service was slow for both courses and was by Moroccan standards to be quite expensive.
