We fell into this place near our Riad and were not disappointed. The evening was a bit cold and we were placed at a table next to a fire, which pleased my girlfriend no end. The food was tasty and original fusion, if a little on the sweet side. After dinner a band came on, and we got relocated to... More

We sat on the ground floor which I'm pleased we did so we had a good view of the entertainment. This is not a restuarant to go to for a quiet conversation, but I knew this ahead so was no problem. Food was fine, more comfort eating than fine dining. Would still recommend people go.

This place is really a lot of fun. The food, especially the fish is really excellent. Light and fresh, with wonderful sauces. They have great music downstairs, and lots of private areas to dine in. The decor is loud and unique. Waiters were really friendly, service was great and the drinks are especially good. We went twice in one week!

Food and ambience was superb. Lots of private little niches to dine. We were a group of 6 and had our own little cozy room. The decorating is to die for only to be outdone by the wondrerful cuisine.

Wird ..wird ... wird comment indeed ... Specialy about our waiters beeing pushy ...which is far from the Marocan mentality , always trying to help and in good mood . Even worst ...never had problem with change , specialy on the ground floor where we can check everything going on . Why didn't you call " the manager " ?... More

Wonderful introduction to Essaouira, great live music and really lovely atmosphere in a tiny courtyard with lots of little rooms surrounding it. Fantastic food, really delicious Sea Bream and Calamari - very fresh.

Staying in Essaouira this was a treat one of the evening. Paid a wee bit over the basic but it was well worth it. Excellent choices that all our party could enjoy (a couple being vegetarians). Excellent entertainment...a magician at your table, morrocan band, and a fire poi entertainer. All supplied with no expectation of tipping. Also some freebies food... More

this is the place for a great fun night out..quirky/arty interiors in an old riad located in the heart of the old medina...great food well presented and cooked to perfection and served by very friendly efficient staff who also contribute greatly to the entertainment which is a combination of high energy local music and imaginative cabaret...to describe all in detail...
