“You could do worse”
Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

This place was near our hotel. It was convenient. I asked for a starter and a main - both were off, no apology. But what I eventually ordered was okay. What my husband ordered - which was on - was also okay. Pleasant enough room to sit in. It was okay. What more can we say ...?

“Gave us stomach problems!”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

We went to the restaurant, as per travel guide's advise and got very dissapointed!
After a week of eating "rough" we wanted to treat ourselves to a "bonne table" and were served a food of questionable freshness at very high prices (please bear in mind we are reffering to a restaurant in Maroc!). Had big stamch problems the day after...

“Great restaurant and free wifi”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

El Minza was just outside of our Riad. We had dinner here 2 nights in a row. The menu is wonderful and the portions are very big. On both nights I wasn't able to finish the food on my plate.
The 2 gentleman who waited on us were incredibly attentive and very helpful. Definitely a must if you're staying in Essaouira

“The food was really nice”
Reviewed November 26, 2012 via mobile

The food was really nice on this restaurant but the the random cats coming in and out of the restaurant was off-putting.

“Always good value”
Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

Despite being under-staffed (one of the waiters looks like John Cleese and was off sick - we're sorry to have missed him) his colleagues did very well covering a pretty full house. Trusted Moroccan salad each, followed by a very tasty emince beef and chicken washed down with a bottle of Bonassia. Never disappoints and it will always be visited when we're in Essaouira. Grand merci!
