Beautiful setting. But food did not live up to the surroundings. Certainly not worth the money. And service was on the rushed side of attentive. Children's food arrived within minutes of it being ordered. And their fish certainly didn't taste fresh (sad when you have to resort to chicken by the sea). But everything came at breakneck speed. My advice... More

We came to Essaouira last February for the first time and fell in love with the place, the people and the food. We come back nearly every month and our first call is to pop into Caravane Cafe to book a couple of evenings. We usually bring friends along on holiday with us and so far they have all loved...

This was our second visit to Caravane, 8 months after we originally went. We didn't book but managed to get a lovely table upstairs, which was very romantic. The space here is just so beautiful, so much "wow" factor art and the live music that their band play creates an incredible ambience. All the staff were great! Service was fantastic.... More

I think this was one of our favrouite places to eat where we did not feel we were being charge dextrotionate prices for mediocre food and service. The staff were efficient, the food great and the wine tasty and affordable. Really nice atmosphere, band playing and even a roving magician. Not many places seem to cater for kids but the... More

It's advisable to book in advance as this is a popular place. The food is excellent-my toffee chicken was delivered in a pineapple! The live band and atmosphere are just fabulous. We had a great night to remember.

We read about the Caravane Cafe online when looking for places to eat in Essaouira. It sounded quirky and just what we were after. We arrived about 7 pm which was quite early, and were led to one of the smaller upstairs dining areas as we hadn't booked. No one was there and we wondered what the atmosphere was going... More

John & Charles who own Dar Evening Star recommended Caravane Cafe and had arranged a private dining area for us for what turned out to be much more than a dinner. Warm welcome, good food, friendly service and the evening entertainment all combined to make it a memorable evening. The table magician was excellent and the fire dancer lively but... More

They had entertainment in musicians and a fire show which was a lot of fun. I've heard the food is lovely here. So I would eat here another time. The interiour is lush and cosy and... More
