“Pasta great but bad service”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

This is a good choice if you're looking for something beside tagines and couscous, and was quite good value. The pasta was simple but nice and was just what we were after, however the service was awful. We were the first people to arrive at about 7pm and we had to ask a number of times for a menu and then to order, and finally for the bill. After 10 mins of waiting for the bill we went over to where the waitress was sitting and asked to pay. She handed us the bill and took our cash without looking at us, and didn't respond when we thanked her...did we do something wrong? Am not sure if she was just having a bad day but it definitely wasn't the kind of service we experienced at every other Moroccan restaurant!

“Nice place”
Reviewed 18 November 2013 via mobile

This was a nice place to come after some serious over-indulgence in hard-core Moroccan food. The pasta here is simple, if somewhat overcooked (but maybe that's my problem - my husband didn't notice or care). It's pretty fast food - not the kind of place you'll stay for long. But if you weren't planing on making an evening of it, this is a super little place. Note, no alcohol.

“Great value for a plate of tasty food.”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

We wanted a simple meal after a few nights of overindulgence. This little restaurant offers superb value. No great choice- but everything is home cooked in front of you and tasty. We had the pasta with chilli and garlic - amazing kick! And pasta with salmon and cream sauce. Both yummy. Bill with bread, oils, olives, two cokes and a large espresso was only £13. Liked the decor too. Ok we sat at a communal table but the stools were very comfy and we did not feel cramped.

“Best pasta in essaouira”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

If you're looking for a change to the Moroccan tajines, this is a great choice! 6 of us ate here and all were very pleased with their meal. Great variety, fresh ingredients and impressive interior and vibe of restaurant. Great value of money as quite cheap! Definitely heading back
