By far the best lunch we have had in Essaouria and amongst the very best food overall. Bonheur des Dames is open 9 to 5 and is located In a lovely square, Place de Marche aux Grains in the heart of the souks. The food is absolutely wonderful and extremely good value - 3 course lunch came to a total of less than £20 (GBP) for two of us. Tables are outside, in a little sun trap. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The succession of local musicians in the square was an interesting additional feature. Would absolutely recommend - we will go back.

Had a lovely breakfast in the sun with my family of 4. Staff are brilliant. Food was simple but tasty. Excellent value.

Solid and professional approach of the waiters. We had a perfectly cooked vegan vegetable light tajine and a vegetarian pastilla. Tapas is granted, as starter, we enjoyed an excellent fresh juice. Well served, fresh, creative an tasty. A calm shelter worth visiting, next to the main market street.

We ate here a couple of times during a recent visit to Essaouira. Good reliable food, good atmosphere (we love playing with the cats; helpful staff); great goats cheese and mint tea (consistently great mint tea). Looking for a lunch spot in Essaouira? Give this a try. . .
