“Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, simple and tasty food. Great value for money.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Healthy and fresh, a welcome break from bland and overcooked tagines. We had the goats cheese salad and tabouille which were both delicious. Prawn pasta was ok and the falafel mezze accompanied with raisin and herb bread was fantastic. We had both the chocolate tarte and apple tarte and they were both really great.

Fun interior design and really nice staff. Quick, efficient and polite.

Try the fruit juices too. Three course dinner for 2 for 220 dirham - bargain. Would definitely come back.

“Good value food, great ambiance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

Tucked away on the cobbled streets, Triskala cafe is a great find. The menu is hand written and is inexpensive, tasty and original. It definitely has a bit of a hippy vibe with bob dylan pictures and 60s/70s music, but that adds to the feel of the place. The juices are original and fresh (even if mine wasn't quite to my liking), and apparently the desserts are great although we didn't indulge this time. Would definitely go again.

“cool decor, excellent food, good value, great ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

Returning to Essaouira after almost two decades we loved the authentic 60's decor which was stylish cool retro without the usual hippy slant. The food was excellent, presentation and content very pleasing, as were the prices. The service was friendly with minimum fuss so relaxing. We ate there twice in 6 days despite strong competition from such a variety of venues in the town. Definitely one to recommend

“Wish we could have sampled everything on the menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

Triskala is a stylish, relaxed and ambient cafe that's full of quirky design ideas and intimate little spaces. Service is exceptional, background music is awesome and the food is such a welcome break from the usual vegetarian tagines and cous cous. The menu changes daily, so we ate there twice and loved every mouthful. Awesome place!

“Amazing desserts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Super comfy and cool, this place is a nice break from the exclusively Moroccan food found elsewhere. We loved the desserts, especially the apple tarte and the chocolate fendant. Service was warm and friendly.
