Today we visited the newly opened Babel a short drive from Essaouira.Babel is a short distance from the Route Marrakesh,down a benign piste,and next to Les Jardins de Villa Maroc.
We were really impressed-the food was very good indeed(the weekend barbecue-sallads,other starters,fine grilled meat,as well as cheeses from Meskala and smashing desserts-fruit sallad,fondant,mousse,gateau).Really very well done.The reception from Brigitte and Jamal was cordial and friendly,just right in tone and style.The service was very good measured by any standard,and outstanding for Essaouira-the waiters were kind,attentive and highly professional.
The Babel exterior with the big terrace around the pool and with olive and argan trees as well as lots of other plants,flowers and shrubs is delightful.
The interior is very smart and tres chic-elegantly furnitured with a great sense of style and humour,with unusual and clever combinations of designs and materials.Like the living/dining room of your best aesthetically gifted friend!
We are lucky to live only four kilometres away,and shall return many times.
