The fish grills has they are known are close to the port of Essaouira. They get fresh fish and seafood from the local fisher men that morning. All the different fish stalls will hustle you in to come into their stall. Stand your ground and try to get the best deal you can.You can get a big platter for two... More

Take the very good with a grain of salt Hard sell souk atmosphere - very friendly fast fresh. Expect fresh fish, grilled without further ado. No fancy flavoring, we had a negotiated price including one beverage a soft drink and fries. Very enjoyable experience of a absolutely no frills fish experience. No regrets if you go with the right expectations.... More

Great food, service and reasonably priced. The prawns are to die for! Nice clean eating space with views of the Place and Port. There was a mixture of people in too. Families with young kids, young couples and solo travellers like me. Very cosmopolitan atmosphere. Highly Recommended!

The chaotic, hard sell atmosphere can be engaging if you're in the mood. It appears that you can even bargain for the price of your meal. Beware - when the bill comes you may be asked to pay for "extras" like flatware and serviettes. Full disclosure - some members in our party were quite ill after dining here, whereas others... More

buy your own fish from the market first ( make sure you bargain fir the fish first, it’s a must! ) and then let the fish grill stall to grill it for you, you will pay for salad and drinks when you enjoy your fish!

Once we checked into our medina and after a 10min walk thru the busy medina we ended up in this little square for some local speciality. Now I've been here before so was expecting the what happened but bless my wife, it was her first time and it was hilarious watching all the stall owners (men) trying to convince (lightly... More

We are lovers of fresh fish and this was the best place to experience it! We picked our preferrd fishh ( shrimp,lobster, etc) and they weighed it and cooked it on charcoal grills right before our eyes. Absolutely delicious!

Once you get past the salesmen in their white coats, haggle hard for an enormous lunch of fish & seafood straight off the boats in the harbour. Prices constant across the market, but easy to haggle down on the cooking and service. Tip: take some wipes for your hands, as it is best to eat with your hands!

This won't be to everyone's liking, as it's a hard sell with the various grill stands competing for your business. Like us, you'll end up getting a mix of things you want, and things you ask about which somehow end up on your plate! We went to the first stand on the right, and had good fun with the g... More
