A wonderful little restaurant in Essaouira, fantastic service and delicious food! I would recommend making a reservation because it is quite a small restaurant, and try the duck you wont be disappointed!

“Good restaurant in the heart of the medina”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

We booked there following tripadvisor s advices and we were happy.
Food was great especially the duck breast (exquisite). A little bit pricey and doesn't accept credit cards (???!).
The lights and the music perfect and the service was professional and kind.
The only lack of style was the invite to write a review on tripadvisor.
I would have done it anyway since who writes reviews rely on tripadvisor who doesn't just get thereby chance.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

My sister recommended the place to me and for once it was good to listen to her.

This place offers absolutely fantastic fusion food in an intimate setting.
There are not many tables which adds to the distinct atmosphere.

The food was probably the best we've had in our two weeks Marocco. Especially the monk fish tartar with limes was outstanding.

If you want something different than the tajines and couscous this is certainly the place to go as the food is delivered with excellence and creativity hardly found elsewhere in Marocco.

If you are in essaouira - try it out!

“Awesome Restaurant”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

We spent two nights in Essaouira and we just did not want to try any other restaurants in town.
The Service and the food are one of a kind.

And..... the Moroccan Seafood Pastilla ???? is a must. ENDULGE YOURSELF.

“Great little restaurant”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Ate here twice during our stay in Essaouira- excellent both times (fusion of Moroccan and French styles), and attentive service but probably helps if you speak French. Veal in particular was excellent. Highly recommended and good value given the quality of the food. Also try it's 'sister' restaurant, La Clé de Voute, which is run by the wife of the owner of this restaurant.
