We stumbled on this restuarant by accident, while walking through the Medina in Essaouira. It's tucked away in a corner down one of the many streets. As best described, it is near the Western wall of the Medina close to a rampart.
While the restuarant seats only about 20 people, the atmosphere is cozy and open. The decor is traditional and the service was excellent. All food is prepared to order and is tastefuly presented. Mint tea is almost manditory and comes already sweetened. If you would like it unsweetened (Ido), simply ask and they will comply.
Having my camera around my neck, the waiter, offered to take several pictures of us (without the shakedown you get in Morocco when taking pictures).
I enjoyed prawns (about the size of a VW Beetle) and steamed vegetables. For dessert, I enjoyed a large crepe with chocolate drizzled over it. The cost for two meals amounted to about $20.US. By far the best foof and bang for your buck.
