Lots of fish to choose from the blackboard and we had a monk fish tagine and calamari...both were tasty. The set up is a cosy restaurant with a mezzanine where the cooking takes place. Friendly service make this a good choice.

We had a very good time with my friends. The staff was very kind and took care about everything. The Raviolis with crabs and the Brown-cookies were delicious! You definitely have to go there when visiting Essaouira

Attractive restaurant lit by candles at the end of an ally. Monkfish in cream sauce and Thai prawns followed by peach tart and apples in cinnamon washed down by house wine. All was excellent. Restaurant was nearly full by 8pm.
