Description: Grilling dishes on glowing embers was at the base of all cookery, and is an art our Chef Mohammed has mastered perfectly. Here on the second floor of the Riad Zahra with an ocean view Mediterranean cuisine is to the fore. Paëllas, lobster or prawns, sea fish, shellfish, meat ... At the heart of our cuisine are the superb natural products, which give out all their savours under the embers' influence, sharing their aromas with the grills and the products cooked on them. Jofre will help you choose dishes that are just right for you and will help you choose wines to match them. There's also a wide range of wines for you to enjoy.

“Amazing food!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We ate at this restaurant a couple of times during our stay at the Riad Zahra. The food was delicious! The steak was amazing and the seafood very fresh. All at a very reasonable price and the service was great. The views are stunning! Highly recommended!!

“Lovely Riad and great food”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

This restaurant was real little gem. We messed around with the menu asking for a small main as a starter, also as there was no lamb chops the chef provided my husband with the most amazing piece of beef. The young man serving was fantastic, great personality and definitely an asset to the restaurant. Try it

“Fresh!!!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

This delightful restaurant is located on the beautiful Riad Zhara, which contrary to the other riads we stayed in our 1 week trip to Morocco, the sorroundings were very nice. The restaurant is located on the 3rd floor with large windows that overlook the ocean (dont miss the sunsets up there, since Esauira is on the west coast, the sunsets are magical). As per the food, Fresh!...I had a word with the owner, as he strolled by the tables making sure everything was perfect, and he personally overlooks the quality of the seafood to make sure it is of highest quality and meeting his own safety standards, which are a tier higher than then country's standards. The chef's are Moroccan but the spanish presence was felt which created a delicious fusion..The staff was able to acomodate any request we had and it was certainly the best dinner experience we had in morocco. The desserts are to die for...

“Great food! Great view! Great people!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

I had the pleasure of dining at Zahra's a couple of months back and it is by far one of the nicest place to grab a bite in Essaouira. The view is stunning (you get to enjoy a great ocean view without all the hustle and bustle of the medina), the ingredients are super fresh (the seafood is to die for) and their creative chef is always coming up with new and interesting food combinations which make everytime you go there a different yet equally enticing experience. The staff is really friendly, professional, and always available to give great tips about things you can do while staying in Essaouira. Highly recommended.

“Amazing food, service and food”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

What a place to find! One of the most amazing views of a beach sunset in Essaouira with the food to match. I had the fish of the day which was monkfish and was cooked to perfection. Will definitely be going back for our final night. Service was impeccible too. Do yourself a favour and eat at this place!
