This is not just my favourite restaurant in Essaouira ... or in Morocco ... but t's probably now my favourite resaurant in the whole world! We went there for our last night in Essaouira, at the recommendation of our Riad owner, as we were looking for somewhere a bit special with entertainment as well as food. We were not disappointed...

A unique establishment located through the main gate in the city of Essaouira, Caravane Café is not an average restaurant. Combining an art gallery, antiques, and entertainment with gourmet food, Caravane Café is not to be missed. The atmosphere is friendly, fun, and the restaurant décor is quirky yet visually stunning. It’s colorful, and with an eclectic mix of furnishings,... More

A great place for families. My son was wowed by the fire dancers, magician and we all loved the music. A little bit pricey and the menu is very french but overall worth it for the experience.

Caravane Cafe was just around the corner from our riad. We had read a few great reviews and thought we would check it out and I'm happy we did. The service was impeccable, the food delicious - the monk fish dish was amazing! Plus they gave us a little shot of fresh ginger rum at the end of the meal... More

We had good food, although for the price we would have expected more from the mains. Desserts were great though!

Having visited Essaouira twice before, surprisingly I had never eaten at Caravane Cafe before. However, it was recommended by our riad so my mother and I decided to give it a try and we were not disappointed - in fact, we ended up eating there twice during our four night trip! The food and presentation was top, Michelin Star, quality... More

This won't be your cheapest meal in Essaouira as prices are European, however the food is flawless, the cocktails are strong, and local music & fire dancing are often taking place which means a free show with dinner. We've had a small private room both times we dined here, which is really special. Overall good value for money.
