We visited this restaurant last year and a year on it is still as good.

Food delicious and authentic and service efficient plus they are licensed to serve wine.

We went for lunch having seen a positive review in the Rough Guide, and were disappointed. The tablecloths weren't very clean, and we were the only diners. We ordered a few things from the tapas menu, including some garlic prawns (didn't really taste of anything), saffron rice (ditto), and a couple of vegetable dips, which were fine. Food took a long time to come. We thought the waiter was quite unfriendly. At one point, they brought over a large fish dish that we definitely hadn't ordered, which was awkward. Just before we left, I could hear someone sneezing and coughing in the kitchen, which was a real turn off! All in all, a definite no.

We have visited Essaouria many times and eaten in different places. We stumbled on Dar Loubane this year and are pleased we did. The food in Morocco can vary greatly, with some tagines lacking in flavour. The food here is excellent with a greater choice than in many The restaurants. We ate here four times, as a family of five, and there was something for all tastes. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the restaurant is decorated in a very interesting way. We will certainly return!

Interesting environment eating in the middle of an open courtyard. We were ready for a break from tagine and really enjoyed the tapas for a change, but I also had a great fish tagine. Saturday night music had a mixed review from our teenage children. Sadly our daughter was suffering from too much sun so we had to leave early. We need special catering to avoid serious allergic reactions and our host in this restaurant was fantastic. He listened, understood and was really helpful. I would definitely go there again. It was also one of the few occasions that we seemed to be eating alongside locals.

We went to this place because we heard some people speaking well of it. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent. The beef brochettes, were of the highest quality. Also the fish soup (the starter), was a generous portion. Notwithstanding the wine! Alcohol! Note well, alcohol is hard to come by during Ramadan, however the wine is good value (particularly the moroccan wines, which are very good). The patrons are emmensely welcoming. The riad is of a beautiful, ramshackle nature. But the overall impression calming. I will be returning.
