Description: La Cantina Essaouira is an English cafe serving delicious home-cooked English and international food, juices and smoothies.

“Good food, welcoming staff.”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

Just had lunch at La Cantina, two cheese jackets, chicken stir-fry and a burger, all freshly cooked and nicely presented followed by chocolate cheesecake that was worth a visit on its own. All the above plus two teas and a large bottle of water for £20 (290 Dirhams). Excellent value and pleasantly tended to by Jan and Agnes.

“Easily the best burger in North Africa”
Reviewed June 15, 2014 via mobile

Was getting a bit bored of tagines and cous cous for every meal so I was happy to have any thing other than that. Turns out the burger is excellent, one of the best I have ever eaten. I also finally had a proper cup of earl grey.
