“Great family run restaurant”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

We came accross this restaurant by accident, as nearby recommanded restaurants were already full. Such a nice surprise ! Lovely service with great family fish recipes (we had a perfect shark tajine and grilled squids with shrimps), a candles-cosy atmosphere and an outstanding live music band playing gnaoua songs among others to add this final key touch to what turned to be a magic evening !

“Very nice people. Great atmosphere.”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

My wife and I visited Restaurant Ramsess because from the outside it looks interesting. It is tucked into a busy market street and had a "bodega" feel. Just like the decor, the people are warm and friendly. Also,if you're looking for wine with the meal---not easy in Essaouira---here's your spot !

“This restaurant made our day in Essaouira”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

On a day trip to Essaaouira we had previously made a choice of restaurant using trip advisor.

Ramsess is not impressive from the exterior - don't be put off. Inside is charming, authentic and cosy.

The restaurant is family run and staff are very friendly and welcoming. We were particularly impressed by Zineb and left with an impression of having being invited to dine with the family.

The meal itself was delicious and freshly cooked to our order.

In short - an absolute delight which made our day.

“Go and enjoy their food.”
Reviewed March 6, 2014 via mobile

Had an excellent meal here on our first night in Essaouira, the place has a very relaxed atmosphere but they are passionate about their food. We probably went a bit over board in what we ordered but you would be able to have an excellent meal for about 120dh each. Definitely recommend
