Was there with friends during an Essaouira Visit. The stuff is friendly and highly motivated. The coffee was good and the small cakes and pasties we're superb. On the terrace you'll have a nice view over the old town wall onto the sea. The prices are moderate and i would go there again. The food on the other tables also looked very good. It's very clean and fulfills western standards.

I have been here many times before and its simply the best place for dinner in Essaouira. The host is very friendly, the place is cozy, it’s warm, and the food excellent, for a reasonable price.

Les Arcades is in the heart of the shopping district within the Medina and the roof top terrace is a great place from which to watch the world go by. It's also a great place to eat. We had previously only eating inside on the ground floor so wanted to see how it would be 'up top'. I can only recommend that it's not ideal for anybody REALLY tall or really fat as the first floor ceiling is only about 5 foot 6 high with a big beam across that you need to duck under, and then the final stair case is quite narrow. But it's well worth the adventure of getting up to the roof.

I don't recall what we ate - we ate SO much this week - except for the ever outstanding apple crumble with ice-cream which we keep going back for.

We had lunch and dinner here. Modest owner and staff, modest place: you overlook it easily.....but the food is excellent ! Fresh vegetables; fresh meat; fresh fish. Pastries and sauces all sidedishes are homemade as well as pickled sardines. Very, very, tastefull.
The place is overlooked easily: it's small and modest. But if you go through the arceds, you really should try these Arcades as well ! Lovely roof terrace and also inside it's comfortable. We overheard returning visitors talking about the Apple Crumble, mentioning it the best in Morocco ....we tried it and YES it's delicious ! As well as the Fish Plancha, Seafood Pasta.......We were very glad to go inside and enjoy the food !
It's truly recommended. To staff and cuisine: big thank you !

(Note: there are no alcoholic beverages served....it's all about the food !)

We ate here three times a couple of weeks ago, lunch and two dinners ...always an excellent experience -very friendly service, great ambience, with a cosy ground floor restaurant and a roof terrace. All typically Moroccan, sensibly priced and, most importantly, excellent, beautifully cooked food ! Will certainly revisit and wish you all the best for the future...Paul and Vivien
