This is a lovely little café the décor is great, food is tasty. We had a variety of dishes and everyone enjoyed them. The chocolate cake was amazing, the crapes where Moroccan pancakes not French but they are very tasty and would recommend people trying them as they are like flat crumpets. The only thing was the water was filtered not bottled. All in all for the price it was worth a visit and it appears to be popular as it was really very busy. In short would go again but would bring my own water.

We really enjoyed nice decor and relaxing atmoshere at Triskala as well as very friendly staff (fluent in French and English). Menu was simple but original (not only couscous and tajin like at many other restaurants). Service was efficient ad helpful — we tried starters (salad with goat cheese) and main: falafels and sardin fishballs. It was very tasty and well cooked - and comparing to other restaurants - cheap. As a dessert we had chocolate fondant, strongly recommended and worth trying! BTW - if yu want to have a glass o wine bring your own bottle as they don't serve alcohol in there

We arrived to a very nice greating and were initailly impressed with the decor and atmosphere however this changed when we received our food we had a prawn gratin that had shrimps in that certainly weren't fresh and the rest of the dish contained overcooked pasta that had collapsed and melted cheese slices that were being passed of as behcamel sauce there was also a complete absance of breadcrumbs ! The ocean tagine also only contained sardine meatballs which seemed strange as essaouria has an abundance of fresh fish ! We stayed in essaouria for a week and trust me there are far better places for food in town! We also made our grevences known however the staff just smiled and gave us our bill ! Overall to much focus on art house style and little focus on cuisine !

The other reviews are correct, the service is excellent, food is delicious and very good value. Starters 20-30 dh mains 40-60 . You leave feeling full but fresh. Cosy and relaxed decor, mixing Moroccan with a few retro pieces, the more you look the more you find to like.
