We stopped by in the afternoon and made a reservation for dinner. The couple who should have been gone from our table by the time we arrived stayed and stayed, so after a brief wait we got another table in an alcove but with a view of the musicians and the fire dancer. Complimentary cocktails were much appreciated. I wish... More

In the center of Essaouira - the owners have an art gallery opposite and a guest house just outside of town called Dar Caravanne (lovely gardens, swimming pool, great food as we ate there = very popular for lunch). Anyway, back to the cafe. A riyadh covered in artwork. Live music - but pretty subdued i.e. not too noisey. Staff... More

The cocktails were great, and the food delicious. The owners/staff are complete characters and it's obvious that they love this place and love interacting with the guests. Excellent music and nightlife vibe. Would... More

Had a wonderful friday night dinner here recently and would highly recommended the experience. I thankfully popped in during the day to make a reservation which was probably a good idea considering the venue ended up packed later that evening. Venue and atmosphere is amazing with tables in the open courtyard, upstairs and also tucked away in various other rooms.... More

We can't wait to return. Definitely our favourite... More

We visited this restaurant with our family. The atmosphere is wonderful with a lot of colour and art. The food is outstanding and the visit from the in-house magician made it a memorable experience for the kids.
