From the moment we stepped into the riad (and Gregy lent ne 20 Dhms to pay the porter) the smile did not leave our faces. The riad itself is well-deisgned, bright and airy and very pleasant (with a lovely open fire inside). But what makes it quite extraordinary is the welcome of the staff, and the quality of the food. Gregy's obvious enthusiasm for Essaouira and life itself is infectious.Having ordered a meal before we arrived, which turned out to be chicken tagine and was absolutely delicious, we did not eat anywhere else in Essaouira. Samira's coucous is exceptional and the grilled king prawns we asked for were also amazing.
