My little niece was insistent on something particular and chef was fabulous, went out of their way to make us welcome, even let little one make her own special pizza. Portions were generous and great value.

I have been dining chez Pinot for years now. The food is always good with a varied & varying menu. Desserts are few but good. Aicha is always a busy waitress but works without fault. Pinot always a genial host!

High end for price - low end for value. As a regular Tripadvisor users we chose Silvestros for our last evening in Essaouira and I have to say that the negative reports for this restaurant were correct. I chose the fettucine with courgette and prawns....More

We went twice. First we took pasta and ravioli which were tasty. The pasta with shrimps, courgettes and saffron was particularly good. Second time we took pizza and we couldn't believe they were made by an Italian: the dough was so hard to cut, the...More

I only had pasta so nothing overly creative but it was quite basic. Good portions and the drinks were very nice. However, service is verrry slow and we waited an hour for a main, I think everyone did! Not the biggest issue if you're able...More

Quelques marches à grimper et vous voici totalement dépaysé. La vue des antipasti, fromages et vins d’Italie ouvrent l’appétit. Silvestro, en chef italien qui se respecte, veille jalousement à l’authenticité de sa cuisine. Les pâtes sont faites maison, les pizzas croustillantes, cuites au feu de bois et les produits tels fromages, prosciutto, huile d’olive et café importés. Cela donne une carte riche et variée à savourer dans l’atmosphère chaleureuse d’une salle toujours pleine d’une clientèle fidèle
