The restaurant is nicely decorated in Moroccan style. The seafood were fresh and delicious. We tried the octopus salad, which is the daily special. The vegetable was fresh and plenty, the octopus was tender and tasty. We also tried lobster bisque and grilled king prawn, both were great. Services was good as well! I highly recommend this restaurant.

I am always a little reluctant to climb the stairs to an unfamiliar restaurant ( something to do with a reluctance to leave if you don't like what you see ) This time I'm so glad I did. I had the Lobster Bisque followed Sea Bream dish with calamari and vegetables. Wow sensory overload! That plus the live Moroccan Music..Great... More

My husband and I ran into this place close to closing time. They still accepted us and we were the only people in the restaurant. It was kind of cool. Our waiter was so great and we ordered way too much food. The soups were fantastic and giant. We were already so full by the time the main plates came.... More

Great position and atmosphere, waiters attentive, tasty nibbles provided. The goats cheese and Beetroot salad was fresh and delicious. However, out main courses disappointed -the calamari sizes varied so cooked to different levels, John Dory a little over cooked and dry. French fries didn't arrive for the meal despite promises they were coming. More expensive than expected for quality of... More

A local Moroccan friend takes me to this lovely restaurant hidden away off the lane way inside Medina, they have a very good rooftop terrace offering some views, food is lovely and large volume, mixed fish fry and seafood salad both were very enjoyable. Mixed juice or avocado juice is excellent, overall, it is nice atmosphere for a reasonable cheap... More

Service was slow. Slow to order, slow to get appies, main meals and the bill. A friend tried to cancel dessert because it was getting late and we just wanted to get back to our hotel. My other friend wanted to pay by credit card, but it took so long, she ended up paying cash. We were there for 3... More

A lovely atmosphere and good location in the hub of Essouria. The menu has a wide selection. Food was fresh and moderate sized portions which I prefer over being too large. However not as tasty as I would expect for the price. I ordered fish cooked with ginger but barely tasted the ginger.

A friendly restaurant with a great menu. The harera soup was superb and the chicken cous cous was cooked to perfection. I can't wait to dine there again.
