There are many small seafood stalls in a line just outside the harbour and they all offer the same thing, you just have to decide on one. It is a good idea to ask what you can get for a set price then you will...More

The best place to eat fish not just in Essaouira but anywhere ... other reviewers complain about the aggressive salesmen but there's a simple way to turn their enthusiasm to your advantage. Pick a price you want to pay - in our case, 20 euros...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....More

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...More
