Stumbled across this gem while wandering the medina. The amazing calamari tajine was a highlight! Pair it with the vegetables tajine and you have a winner!

Waited for 1h15 for food. Waiter just laught at me when I asked why it toke so long. Portions too small - I was hungry when I left. Food was mediocre. Frenched fries (cold) and soup were fetched from neighbour. Totally shameless.

We had a lovely Christmas Eve dinner here, having also visited the restaurant earlier in our trip. Its an intimate restaurant with with very good service which is excellent value. The food was delicious, including langoustine, monkfish, lamb tagine and the best Creme Catalane in Morocco.

We went here twice on our holiday. The first time I had the chicken and lemon tagine which was very tasty. My daughter had a chocolate crepe which she liked.

The Restaurant is decorated beautifully and has a romantic flair, so it's nice to eat there with your partner. The food was good, but not great. Service was very good and fast and people are really friendly and polite.

Didn't get the chance to eat here but the hostess was absolutely fantastic. We were looking for a restaurant that served wine and she arranged for one of the staff, who was really lovely, to walk with us across town to a seafood restaurant. Thank you so much for your incredible hospitality. It is experiences like that that make Essaouria... More

Just felt hungry and needed a break from shopping - came to this place and wow, definitely a hidden gem. We sat downstairs and it was very cozy. The service was good, attentive and we ordered the chicken tangine with lemon and a fish pastille. Both were better than we had before or have since! Chicken breast was a good... More
