“Dinner Elizir Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

You need to book. Relatively small but excellent menu. Really good fresh local food. Cost around E40 each which is pricey for Essouira.

“Phenomenal food in a great location~”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

My husband and I tried to get reservations here on a Monday night, and I now understand why it was difficult to do so. The restaurant is small and cozy (limited tables), but it was mainly because the food is supremely good and people were clamoring to get in. The house red wine is delicious, and the ravioli is the best I've ever had. The decor is very cool, sort of retro Moroccan chic, and it's a great price point. I highly recommend this for an intimate dinner while you're in Essaouira!

“Quirky and delicious chocolate torte!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

As others have said a quirky place with eclectic decor and seemingly bonkers menu! Yummy dips and tasty chicken tagine followed by sublime chocolate torte with pistachio ice cream though could have done without the cucumber juice accompaniment!!!

“Quirky Italian-owned restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We enjoyed our meal at this quirky restaurant. Lots of dips with good bread to start with: courgette puree, pumpkin, really fresh ricotta, aubergine and good olive tapenade - all on the house, glad we skipped the starters! For mains we had pasta with ricotta which was really good, great grilled sea bass with rosemary and couscous, really excellent. The lamb tagine was not as flavoursome as expected though and our only other problem was that we were in a small room with another table of people so we always felt we had to be talking to avoid unwittingly listening in - a bit too close for comfort. On the whole, though, a good experience.

“Fantastic restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Loved the quirky feel about the restaurant. Food superb. The gnocchi for the starter was excellent and the roast beef was cooked to perfection. The pride the owner has in his restaurant is very clear and made the experience more enjoyable. Our favourite restaurant out of the ten very good restaurants we ate at
