Great position and atmosphere, waiters attentive, tasty nibbles provided. The goats cheese and Beetroot salad was fresh and delicious. However, out main courses disappointed -the calamari sizes varied so cooked to different levels, John Dory a little over cooked and dry. French fries didn't arrive for the meal despite promises they were coming. More expensive than expected for quality of... More

A local Moroccan friend takes me to this lovely restaurant hidden away off the lane way inside Medina, they have a very good rooftop terrace offering some views, food is lovely and large volume, mixed fish fry and seafood salad both were very enjoyable. Mixed juice or avocado juice is excellent, overall, it is nice atmosphere for a reasonable cheap... More

Service was slow. Slow to order, slow to get appies, main meals and the bill. A friend tried to cancel dessert because it was getting late and we just wanted to get back to our hotel. My other friend wanted to pay by credit card, but it took so long, she ended up paying cash. We were there for 3... More

Very good food and service. You can dine inside or on the terrace. Plenty of special dishes and variety to choose from.

A lovely atmosphere and good location in the hub of Essouria. The menu has a wide selection. Food was fresh and moderate sized portions which I prefer over being too large. However not as tasty as I would expect for the price. I ordered fish cooked with ginger but barely tasted the ginger.

A friendly restaurant with a great menu. The harera soup was superb and the chicken cous cous was cooked to perfection. I can't wait to dine there again.

We picked this restaurant randomly as we wandered the medina. You must climb three flights of stairs to get to the terrace dining area, but you get a great view of the medina. We arrived around 9pm and ordered the "Paella aux fruits de mer" for two. It took at least 45 minutes for the food to arrive, but it... More

Great location, on one of the long shopping streets. Inside is very clean and well presented. Terrace is basic, but pleasant.

What wonderful food and ambience, with excellent service. We had tried restaurants in Tangier and Marrakech - but Restaurant Des Reves in Essaouira wins hands down. The menu was full of traditional tasty food and the waiter was able to discuss all the menu items with us in English, which really assisted our choices. The fresh seafood in Essaouira was... More
