The Patio restaurant was recommended to us by our Riad owner and we were not disappointed. Maybe the lighting level is a bit on the low side but the decor is atmospheric. They have an extensive menu, majoring with fish, and also have chalkboard specials. Everything we had was of high standard with attentive service, but not overbearingly so. We... More

There are quite a few places that don't serve booze in Essaouira so if you like a drink & a smoke you can do both here. There smoke didn't bother us due to where we were sitting. The ambience is great: dark & cosy with live music. The food was fantastic. I had the set menu: Squid, Chicken & cous... More

The most fancy restaurant I visited in the Medina. Had a three course dinner of: 1. goat cheese and tomato mille-feuille - super good, the cheese was creamy and the tomato super ripe. 2. Fish tajine with pears - nice combination of sweet fruit with fish. On the side there was some couscous with cinnamon on top that gave it... More

The Patio is a very stylish restraunt, dark and cavern-like, candle lit, and quite romantic. We had a stupendous meal here. The Millefeuilles starter with fromage du chevre and tomatoes was exceptional, as was the pear and chocolate tart for dessert. So why not five stars? Three things. Firstly slow service - for example my friend who opted to not... More

My husband had fish which he thoroughly enjoyed. Nice to have wine with our meal - good quality and very reasonably priced. One of our... More

This is a place full of atmosphere. I've been here in previous years, and the ambience is just as good and the food maybe even better. This is an ideal place to invite for a romantic evening. They have live music some nights. A large menu on the blackboard is presented with candlelights. Our choice this time was salmon roll... More

Be prepared to pay Western price, other than that the place is excellent. Wonderful seafood, great atmosphere and wine if you want it. Not much more to add, more European than Moroccan for those who are not so adventurous when it come to local dishes. A safe bet when there's so much to choose from.

First dinner we had out of 7 in Essaouira and it was because we both enjoyed the atmosphere, band started up towards the end of the meal and it was like stepping back in time.

This restaurant is conveniently located in the medina. It serves good food and wine at reasonable prices. We came here during a rain storm and very glad to find a comfortable and relaxing haven.
