“Marseilouiara”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

You need a good map and a good instinct of direction to find this place. So the words: a hidden treasure is in this case not a platitude but reality. Where do you find a real cook, a real cuisinier in the kitchen anymore? Most of the times it is hobby-cooking. But this is the real craftmanship or better said: cookmanship!
Go and sit and enjoy the taste of Marseille and try to discover the influence of Essaouira. We love the place. Only 3 month in town. Hope it will stay there forever.

“Most enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Not as difficult to find as other reviewers suggest, follow directions not your instinct. Authentic French food, well served and delicately cooked. We were spoiled to be the only diners with the chief cooking and his wife serving. Glad Essaouira has a new restaurant. Food was good, wished it was better. The service superb.

“A real treat - what else do you expect from a "Maitre cuisinier de France"?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

It is a tiny bit tricky to find the place if you do not know Essaouira but when you call they will send someone to fetch you. And it is absolutely worth any effort to get there! The food was to die for (and worth every dirham though it is not cheap), the owners (she serves, he cooks) lovely people, the ambiance cosy and orientally romatic (including the little alleyways which lead to there) - I wish this outstanding new addition to the culinary scene of Essaouira all the success they deserve! Go! I will definitely return!
