Fantastic restaurant. The food was spot on - tasty tagine and one of the most perfectly cooked sea bream fillets I've tasted in a long time. The owner was humble and charming, and made us feel extremely welcome, whilst the waiter was attentive without being over bearing. The owner's got it right here.. Hopefully we'll have time to check out the sister restaurant nearby.

Highly recommended, that was a lovely evening!

As much as we have thoroughly enjoyed traditional Moroccan cooking we were craving something different. Having consulted trip advisor and seen the superb reviews this restaurant was getting we decided to take a chance and turn up. The welcome was warm, and we were given beautiful dates and caramelised onion as a little appetiser. The menu had good choice but was not overwhelming with extra dishes of the day. We started with a beautifully balanced avocado and orange salad ( totally delicious), followed by red mullet and fillet mignon with curry and rice. Both these dishes were outstanding....2 very clean plates can testify to this. These wonderful mains were topped by a mocha creme brûlée and a fantastic prune, chocolate and Armagnac base topped with a very delicate vanilla ice cream. Absolutely Devine. The ambience was lovely, staff very helpful and attentive and the food was to die for. We absolutely recommend for anyone looking for a special meal .Good value for money.

One of the problems in all towns and cities you go to is filtering out the 100s of restaurants that are just trying to make a quick buck form tourists from those that are actually there to serve great food.

This restaurant is one of the great ones!

Found it on Trip Advisor as being highly rated and we weren't disappointed. I had the special of prawns and rice and my girlfriend had the duck and apple - both were fantastic, I would happily have paid 4x the price in a London restaurant for it!

Add to that a great atmosphere & service and a killer soundtrack playing (Mr Scruff was dropped in there) - defiantly worth visiting.

Essaouira has many good restaurants serving local cuisine. Many restaurants are reasonably priced, clean, with friendly service. The one issue, if you spend more than one or two nights in Essaouira, all these restaurants serve exactly the same salads, mains and deserts; it gets monotonous.
Finding something different is not easy unless you want pizza, so discovering d'Orient et d'Ailleurs was a treat. The avocado salad was a welcome change from the typical Moroccan salads. I had the seafood pasta, with the recommended chilli sauce. My wife had the duck with sauté potato. Both dishes excellent, abundant, well presented and different from the standard fair.
The restaurant is easy to find, clean and comfortable; service is friendly. It is upmarket compared to the typical Moroccan restaurant but worth the extra.

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!
