It took a bit of finding but it was worth it. Owner is really friendly and helpful, atmosphere is good; food is good value and music is very entertaining.

We visited Le Sirocco on 2 occasions during our 7 days in Essaouira, incl New Year's Eve. Food was amazing especially the lobster, fisherman's pot & chocolate fondant. The staff were very accommodating, friendly and helpful. We had a blast on NYE with live music and a very entertaining waiter who sublimely balanced serving, playing bongos, dancing & motivating the... More

Walked into the small little cozy restaurant of Le Sirocco. The music was great as was the service. My family ordered, chicken curry, fisherman pot and seafood tajine. The food was amazing and well priced. Overall great menu for a diverse small but unique menu. Make sure to reserve a table as it usually full.

Went due to other reviews, a mistake. Stood at entrance which was not staffed, lone woman on dance floor looking at us turned out to be owner. Finally condescended to attend to us. First brought wrong wine. Then forgot the rouille and croutons for my partners fish soup. His 6 hr lamb consisted of mostly fat and bone, very little... More

Really enjoyed a family dinner at Le Sirocco. Good service, excellent food, and enjoyable music. Both fish dishes we ordered were very good - esp the curry monk fish.

Cozy little restaurant, with nice live music which wasn't too loud! The music was great, they were playing bob Marley when we left. The fresh salad was very good and light and came with a nice dressing, a nice break from Moroccan cuisine. The monk fish curry was delicious, would definitely recommend. They serve a nice selection of wine as... More

My partner and I walked past and were glad that we stopped! The fillet steak was really good and perfectly cooked, the six hour Lamb was incredibly tender and very flavourful. Also, the Chocolate fondant was really worth saving space for! They have a good range of wines and for the quality of food it is very reasonable price wise.... More

The food first and foremost was great. Which is the first reason anyone goes to a restaurant. The atmosphere was very welcoming and the place had great vibes. The staff was super kind and courteous and the band was awesome! Loved watching the waiter jump up with the band and the whole restaurant was singing along. You can't visit this... More

Stayed a week and only place we went back for a second time, Ambience/music/staff/food all good, also chatted to a few other guests, which all made for an easy going enjoyable evening. Calamari (not fried) was pretty memorable.

Thank Dee C
