Description: Buit entriely of wood in 1893 by the Farraud familly, the Chalet de la plage has seen four generation of owners in its century in existence. without ever failing to live up to this reputation for excellence. wether run by the De Soto family, ,by the hoisnards or -as nowadays- the "Jeannots", the welcome has always been as warm, the view of the port and the islands as impressive, and the fish, seafood and shellfish as fresh and delicious on your plate. over the years the decor has naturally enough been embellished with a thousand and one souvenirs, and today's clients come from all over the worls - artists, sport enthisiasts, poets, or simply anonymous lovers seduced by the timeless charm of EssaouiraEn 1965, la famille Jeannot a repris ce restaurant ouvert depuis 1893 et en a fait une veritable institution a Essaouira et au Maroc. Situee en bordure de mer, juste au-dessus de la plage aux mouettes et goelands d'Essaouira, la carte propose une cuisine mediterraneenne typique. Crustaces, oursins, gambas, calamars, langoustes et poissons entiers sont a la fete. Les serveurs prodiguent leurs conseils sous l'oeil attentif de Jeannot, le capitaine du Chalet de la Plage. La salle est "non fumeur", pour votre confort.

The food is correct and fresh, could have a bit more touch. Friendly service gives a general friendly atmosphere.
Nice view in front of the sea outside the Medina.

A restaurant near the port. Seafood fresh daily offering an excellent choice. Portions are generous. Try the soupe de poisson - a meal in itself.

Enormous plateful of sardines to start. And red snapper as main. Got to hear the little birds sing in the roof before the rush!. Great view of the sea.

We ate here at lunchtime twice during our six day stay and loved both the food and the ambience. The restaurant is right on the sea, almost like being on a boat. Friendly service and delicious fresh fish.
