A really nice and quaint restaurant, serving only vegetarian food and fish, all fresh and local. Is the catch of the day from essaouira port good? Then it's fish on the menu. Is it not? Then there's no fish. The menu changes daily; two entrees, 3 or 4 mains and 1 dessert (mostly) and 1 juice of the day (I... More

We felt lucky to find this place and went back again for a few consecutive evenings. Lovely healthy and tasty food with smiley service. Homemade juice very good. Menu changes every day. Red mullet tagine was best ever.

We loved our evening meal at La Triskalla. A very good range of vegetarian and fish options which suited us. It's a limited menu, but done to perfection! Be sure to pop in and book ahead as there are not many tables and it's very popular.

I visited Triskala twice before and have previously written a review for TA. On my most recent visit to Essaouira a return trip here was on the to do list. Delighted to find that the menu is still just as good as ever, still serving veggie and fish dishes and the food is utterly delicious. I had samosa, followed by... More

I've been to so many lovely places in Essaouira already, this one is also memorable. Lovely, cozy decorations with books, pictures of Jimi Hendrix and red lights. They don't serve meat, they're not all veggie though! They serve fish. The dishes were all tasty and the juice of the day was amazing! They have a very nice home made bread... More

A bijou eaterie seconds from our riad. A peaceful solace from the medina alleys that feels like you are underground. Vegetarian biased menu which suited us perfectly. We opted for zuccini crumble for myself & falafel with a choice of salads in small serving bowls on a plate, they included cabbage, aubergine mash, potato salad & tomato salad. We were... More
