Wow on our 2nd to last night of a 2 week trip we stumbled upon this gem and was hands down the best meal we had all trip. The food is to die for . We tried a lot of different small plates my favorite...being the razor clams i had 3 orders lol. He monk fish wrapped in fig leaf is to die for and the marine beef is outstanding . The owners are the most welcoming warm friendly people i ever met they treated us like if we knew them 20 plus years . A must try…….More
My partner and I stopped in here looking for a drink on our first night in Essaouira and enjoyed the atmosphere and company of the owners so much we decided to come back for dinner the following night. The simple menu speaks to the freshness...of the ingredients and the food did not let it down. The fish soup and duck confit pastilla were both excellent to start, and then the beef Wellington and duck breast were terrific entrees. All in all this it was a delightful experience, the food, wine, service, and atmosphere making it the perfect dinner spot for anyone visiting Essaouira.More
I had two exceptionally good dinners at Umia while I was working remotely from Essaouira. The food is delicious, plus it's the kind of place where the owners, Jamal and Bebe, will take time to talk with you and make you feel at home.
One...evening I ordered dinner for two, to take to my apartment, and Jamal gave me a glass of wine and visited with me while I waited.
The fish in crispy pastry was especially nice!
Jamal and Bebe have a very good bar selection as well. They even had one of my very favourite rums - the 23-year old Ron Zacapa.More
Umia was a nice introduction to the city this evening for us. With its cool vibe and warm welcome it provided a wonderful meal as well as good conversation with the owner. The menu is small yet thoughtful, and we enjoyed everything (especially the roasted...pears/cheese/walnuts, mm!). Everything is made with care and presented artfully. The flavors are nicely crafted. Thanks for a nice dinner!More
This restaurant came highly recommend. It has a nice chic setting, a sense of ambiance and a warm welcome by the owners. Please be aware that one of our party is vegan and the restaurant says it caters for this diet, having booked a table...after a long sightseeing day we thought this was a perfect choice. The only option for the vegan in the group was risotto without the clams....no dessert and no non dairy milk for coffee. Not ideal! The monk fish was quite tasty as was the chocolate fondant. But please reconsider going here if you follow a strict diet, otherwise it’s ok.More
Location: excellent in medina near sea walls. Ambience: crisp and light. Food: beautifully presented sumptuous main portions (1 between 2 for main would have sufficed and we had no space for dessert). Lack of veg/vegan options (didn’t matter to us, as we ate seafood). Wine:...we didn’t indulge but presumably good as French owned. Price: mid-high European main prices. Recommended if you want to blow some cash on a high quality European style meal.More
High-quality cooking with great ingredients and good wine. Delicious. A lovely place to eat. Not cheap but well worth it. And a charming cat. Not a tagine place (although there may have been one on the menu - I can't remember). In high season booking...is recommended. Not a large place but airy, white and comfortable. we didn't go upstairs but that looks cosy. Go there.More
