“Surfer cafe”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

Stumbled upon this place on our first day in Morocco, beautiful cafe on the beach with greta food. I had a catch of the day fish spike which was delicious! Not a very traditional place but a stunning spot for lunch

“Perfect spot for sheltered camel watching!”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

It took us quite a while to find this place! It's further along the beach than we imagined - but only about 20/25 mins from the Medina and definitely worth the wander along the beach. This place has a really chilled vibe, funky music with deck chairs and a motto of "No new, No shoes" You really can kick back, relax and watch the world go by. And it is a truly fascinating people watching spot! So many camels and horses surrounding the fenced off area and then out to sea the veiw of the kite surfers - I went to read my book and ended up just absorbing the atmosphere! The outside area is also really sheltered from the wind so ideal for sitting on the beach without being blown about. It's not cheap, and the service is exceptionally slow, but I would say it's worth the higher prices, and the wait, for the chilled out vibe and respite from the wind. We only had drinks but the food did look, and smell, good!

“Escape the wind and watch the camels”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

The beach in Essouira is so windy that in order to Lounge you have to find shelter. This cool beach hang out is the perfect t place for some beers, some deck chairs and some people watching . From the cool kitesurfing crowd to the camel ride touts, it's all here . Lie back slap on some lotion have a tasty pizza or a really delicious (no chewy bits ) lamb kebab.
Just spent a whole afternoon lounging .....sweet
