Live music every night, surrounded by works of local artists. Welcoming atmosphere, you are at home. The best way to enjoy the wonderful Moroccan cuisine. Marhaba !!! Welcome!!!

“My favorite place in Essaouira”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We had so much fun at this small restaurant. It is up two flights of stairs and well worth the climb. I had delicious tagine, hot and homemade. It was the music that made the place so much fun. More like a jam session then a structured entertainment and we were encouraged to join in. I wish I had discovered it before our last night in Essaouira so we could have returned for a second night.
