Super setting with great fresh food and attentive staff. This restaurant is the only one we revisited during our stay in Essaouira, a must visit place. Seafood is magnificent, much better than the stalls at the fish market.

Huge terrace overlooking the beach. Very quiet place where nobody will disturb you as there's a huge security guard!! :) Wonderful place where I could stay for hours looking at the sea. And the waiter is very nice! :)

Very good location. Friendly service. Get a table to the terrace. We had grilled Kalamari which was good, but the stuffed sardines were excellent!!! I think it would be a pity no to eat at least once at this restaurant.

Buit entriely of wood in 1893 by the Farraud familly, the Chalet de la plage has seen four generation of owners in its century in existence. without ever failing to live up to this reputation for excellence. wether run by the De Soto family, ,by the hoisnards or -as nowadays- the "Jeannots", the welcome has always been as warm, the view of the port and the islands as impressive, and the fish, seafood and shellfish as fresh and delicious on your plate. over the years the decor has naturally enough been embellished with a thousand and one souvenirs, and today's clients come from all over the worls - artists, sport enthisiasts, poets, or simply anonymous lovers seduced by the timeless charm of EssaouiraEn 1965, la famille Jeannot a repris ce restaurant ouvert depuis 1893 et en a fait une veritable institution a Essaouira et au Maroc. Situee en bordure de mer, juste au-dessus de la plage aux mouettes et goelands d'Essaouira, la carte propose une cuisine mediterraneenne typique. Crustaces, oursins, gambas, calamars, langoustes et poissons entiers sont a la fete. Les serveurs prodiguent leurs conseils sous l'oeil attentif de Jeannot, le capitaine du Chalet de la Plage. La salle est "non fumeur", pour votre confort.
