A cosy restaurant with genuine Moroccan dishes at reasonable prices. The host is very friendly and the girls doing the cooking delightful. We ate lunchtime and evenings and you can have a glass of wine!

We always lunch here when in Essaouira. Food is excellent and all freshly prepared to order. We always have the special pastilla dish and the camel couscous. Delicious

I have found this place by coincidence. It is quite small but very cozy place. The owner takes care of every guest and explains the mysteries of menu. I was positively surprised with the food which was really nice and reasonably priced. Worth visiting for...More

Tiny restaurant with good food and a very cute, attentive and friendly service. The menu offers special dishers, which you can't find often in other restaurants.

A cozy spot with a limited menu but everything we tried was excellent. Definitely worth a visit. Their specialty is tea - skip the coffee!

This was the best dining experience we had in Essaouira. It was an intimate affair, and felt very much like eating in the proprietor’s front room. The small menu adds to the homely feel, and the food I ate (a vegetarian gratin) was delicious. The...More
