Personally I found the restaurant a bit overrated by other users. The food was good and service was nice. The menu should be expanded with both non vegetarian and vegetarian dishes. Deserts are amazing. Recommended if you look for something different in Essaouira.

We had the Duck and Beef Wellington. Both were excellent. In fact, exceptional. Service was great and I definitely recommend if you want a nice meal.

Our lunch here was fantastic. Our favourite food in the medina. I had a clam pasta that was so delicious and the chocolate fondant was the best I've had in ages!! I wish we had more time to go back for dinner.
