“Exceptional world class cuisine in Essaouria”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

This is one of the best restaurants we have ever been to worldwide. We live in central London and eat out all the time and travel alot, so we know what we are talking about. In our opinion, it is worth coming to Morocco just for this culinary experience. The food is of an extraordinary high standard. The venue is both intimate and stylish. The hosts are two of the nicest people you could ever meet and we wish them all the very best with this venture.

“Great food, stylish place and amazing atmosphere”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

I have been 3 times in this restaurant within 3 days. The food is outstanding- french cuisine with a marrocan touch. The owners of the place are a french/marrocan couple and are really friendly. You feel at home at this place.

“One of the best experiences in Essaouira”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

A wonderful welcome from this charming French/Moroccan couple.

Cool, well decorated and extremely comfortable surroundings and a great selection of background music.

Unexpectedly, there was a delicious savoury pastry and a complimentary Japanese inspired soup that came as an amuse bouche.

The mains were a hearty shoulder of lamb with cous cous and dorade pan fried in a delicate saffron sauce accompanied by some perfectly presented vegetables.

No room for deserts, but they sounded wonderful.

Tea and coffee were of an equally high standard.

Thoroughly recommended. Go!

“Fantastic food and service.”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Wow, wine and a real steak dinner in Morocco! After being in morocco for 3 weeks we were thrilled to have this treat before returning home. The wine was a bright and cheery local Moroccan wine and it paired nicely with the rare steak. The host was super friendly and managed to find us seating even tho we showed up on a friday night with no reservation. This is one of our top dinners in Morocco for sure. The menu was small and seasonal, and the modern decor would make this boutique restaurant a goto destination in any city.
