“Absolutely delicious meal”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

We dropped by to check the menu in the morning and ordered the pigeon pastilla for that evening - one of the most delicious meals we have ever had. The owner is very friendly and welcoming and was delighted to see us .

“Great dinner, very friendly service”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

We found this restaurant by chance. We saw a tripadvisor 2013 winner sign at the entrance and were not disapppointed. We followed the recommendations of the chef de la cuisine and enjoyed an amazing dinner! The fish was excellent and the dessert a dream. Overall, it was a very nice evening and the food the best we had during our 10 days stay in Morocco.

“Great place”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

We happened upon this restaurant by chance early during our wonderful two week stay in Essaouira looking to have a light meal. After a morning and afternoon in the sun, we were delighted to be indoors and sink into the comfy seats, a gentle breeze blowing in the window which overlooked Av. Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah. The owner recommended the fish, but being vegetarians, we opted for the lentil and pumpkin soups - both delicious and nicely flavored and served with bread and a generous helping of olives. We visited this restaurant everyday during our stay, sometimes for soup or the chocolate crepe and fruit, always for an afternoon mint tea, some of the best mint tea we enjoyed in Morocco. The family members who served us were always welcoming and kind and never seemed to mind if we hung out to talk, write postcards, or play a game of cards. The Restaurant des Reves was a great hidden treasure we're glad we had discovered.

“A place worth finding”
Reviewed 20 March 2013 via mobile

We too were brought here by a local Moroccan lady when we lost our way.
Our lunch was very good (seafood brique and calamar tajine) and they were very nice to our two-year-old - they rushed and brought out her plate of pasta very, very quickly.
I'm not sure I could have found the place myself, but it's worth finding.
While lunch wasn't expensive, I'm not sure it was a great deal by local standards.
Espresso was not so good, although I have a feeling finding good espresso locally is tough.

“Great fish :)”
Reviewed 29 December 2012 via mobile

Food was lovely, ambience not quite as good but really enjoyed it. We were led there by an ad hoc tour guide who promised good food and he was right, despite us being rather hesitant. I'm glad we went though. Wouldn't have minded to see the fish before it was cooked, but never mind
