Myself and my partner are both vegetarian and we were very happy to come across this place. The food was great, the staff were very welcoming, friendly & genuine.

The staff are very welcoming & friendly accompanied by an amazing musician (that plays something similar to a guitar??) really really well throughout your stay.

we visited Ramsess 5 years ago, and had a memorable evening, so decided to try and find it again when we returned to Essaouira earlier this year- and I am glad we did. The place is run by a mother and daughter team using Grandmothers recipes, and the food is divine. The best meal we had in Morocco- and we... More

We had such a lovely dinner at restaurant Ramsess. The atmosphere is cozy, the food is delicious, AND they serve wine! The food is a bit more elevated than your typical Moroccan restaurant and their tagine was the best that I've had all week!
