This restaurant is at least as good as any other restaurants in Essaouira, but the choice is bigger and the prices are lower. My tajine aux légumes et au mouton was actually excellent. The banana and the avocado juice was not as good however as elsewhere. Still this restaurant is a very good choice at moderate prices.

It was late and I was hungry so we went here as it was the first place we came to. I wasn't expecting much to be honest. I only had a vegetable tajine, I've had a lot before and was surprised at how tasty this one was. I was very impressed and would return for a quick meal again.

The prices are ok, mid-range I would say. Food is not that great, but the staff and the service was great!

Delightful cooking of unexpected high quality. For 60dh you get an excellent 3 course meal consisting in my case of a fish soup, grill baby soles, creme caramel plus excellent olives and bread. Very happy!

I thought this place was going to deliver an authentic Moroccan experience but was all a bit touristy! Having said that the food was good an it is positioned so to can eat outside but avoid all the wind!!

I detest restaurants where I find nothing but other tourists. This one is no exception. Food is good but not great. My husband is a restaurateur, so we are quite picky. But for the price we felt we could have done better.

The dishes were a mixture of French&Maroc cuisine, really different from the usual food we had so far. Excellent use of maroc spices. Friendly service and Even wine to make this evening perfect. The prices are very moderate and the portions sufficient.

A cosy restaurant to eat original dishes! I live in Morocco and it the first time that i find a bricks restaurant. The couple who runs the restaurant is such welcoming that, even though I spent only 2 days in Essaouira, I ate twice in this place. Special word for the crème citron verveine, really nice. I even asked for... More
