“The Best Pizza I'd ever had?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Last night I took a walk down the road with my daughter-in-law and a friend to check out an Italian restaurant a friend told me about. We were greeted by Chak, the owner who asked which languages we spoke. I said Swahili and he started talking Portuguese. What a character! After finally ordering 3-pizzas, he began telling us his life story in several languages and continued during our dinner. It was better than TV, although I hope I don't have to see a rerun next time I go there, which I fully intend to do because the food was GREAT!

Don't get me wrong about Chak, he's a really interesting and well meaning man who loves to windsurf, internet surf, and travel when he's not in his restaurant. So, if you're near Essaouira and don't mind driving 8-kilometers south to Raswa, you absolutely have to eat at the Chak Cafe if you appreciate good food!

“Best Italian Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

If you are looking for best italian food, Chak Cafe is the place to go. The friendly and helpful owners have lived for years in Italy and can therfeore guarantee genuine italian cuisine. This includes a variety of Pizzas, Pastas and seafood. But also Moroccan cuisine, particularly couscous is on the menu ( Friday). The restaurant is very clean, the prices are moderate and you get best value for money. Highly recommended

“Delicious Italian Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

We had great Italian food at Chak Cafe, the staff was helpful and friendly and the restaurant is very clean, not just for Moroccan standards. Would eat here all the time if I was staying for longer! Highly recommend it.
