We ate here last night - lentil salad, 'bricks' of goat's cheese, fish and vegetables, and a fish dish (lotte - not sure what it is in English) all delicious, accompanied by a decent bottle of wine and the bill was about £22. Excellent value. Friendly, welcoming owners and a very convivial atmosphere. Would highly recommend.

A little restaurant in the medina not far from main square, easy to find... where Ted, Fred and their lovely staff provide quick and friendly service and a delicious meal , at a very reasonable price........helps to book as the restaurant is small but usually busy...

It was your standard restuarant, it was small, the food was bland, but the staff were cheerful and gave a warm welcome, I wouldn't go to this restuarant again, but it was nice to try a different sort of style.

Very small restaurant indeed, charming French couple own. Wife (chef) comes out when you look at the menu and gives you more information on how she cooks it. Nice touch. Husband/man very attentive and likeable.

We had pastillas (2 chicken for wife & child 1, and one seafood for me) and a pasta with tomato and mince meat for child 2. Mine was nice enough, we've never had pastillas before and wife didn't like it at all, chicken with a sweet taste not for her at all - maybe she chose wrongly on reflection. Pasta and sauce looked anaemic and bland when it came, and tasted even blander. Not much evidence of meat at all and was eaten as a trial more than a treat.

Not a complaint, I think it just wasn't for us. But that pasta dish definitely needs a rethink or the elbow!

This was the best restaurant we went to staying a week in Essaouira!
The food was delicious, made from local ingredients as far as I could tell, served in a friendly and personal atmosphere.
We went there twice - first time, the special was Camel meat couscous - delicious.
The multi-lingual service (French, English and German) was very attentive.
