Just back from a 3 night stay in Esswira, and we went to this 'art restaurant' twice for dinner. Didier and his parter put their heart and sould in their shining riad. To enjoy the whole experience, book ahead and enjoy the ride! Food is 'extraordinaire', some sort of word fusion made from the freshest and tastiest ingredient, we appreciated the diverse meatless possibilities and the vegeterian bouquet is the Millefeuille d'aubergine with a side of rosemary sorbet. The portion size reminds of dinners at the best Santa Monica places, a nice memory from the past! It is no problem at all if guests wish to share a starter. Caravan café is a place for happy moments made of great live music, good company, gastro food and that atmospheric 'je ne sais quoi' that is unique to Esswira. Well done Didier, parter, and team!

Ambience and the welcoming spirit of the waitstaff was a great beginning of a lovely evening. The dinner was interesting and well prepared. We don't eat dairy products and they were helpful in adapting their options for us.

My friend and I stopped by the restaurant in the late afternoon just to make sure they would be open that evening and spoke with the proprietor about dinner. We told him that we would likely be back for dinner, told him where we were from during a quick 2 minute conversation, then went back out to explore the city. When dinner time rolled around we mulled over a few options, then decided that we'd go back to the Caravane Cafe after all. When we arrived (a bit later than we said we would, by the way), the owner had set aside a beautiful table with a large flower arrangement and covered in rose petals in a corner of the main patio. The food was delicious, a small acoustic group played American (Jack Johnson and Ben Harper), French and Spanish pop songs, and the service was impeccable. The bill at the end wasn't small, but considering the quality of the food and the environment, it was well worth it. Would definitely come back.

What a wonderful eclectic place in the heart of Essaouira! Great food in a beautiful funky riad setting. Highly attentive service and fabulous live music too. Definitely recommend this if you want an out of the ordinary experience and an escape from classic tourist fodder.
