“Unexpected quality at a great price”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

We went here as it had great reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. The place was small, with only a small menu but everything we ordered was superb. The seafood ravioli and beef was just excellent. Two nights in essaouria and two superb meals! Tre bien

“Perfect lunch”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

We accidentally passed this lovely restaurant and decided to have lunch because the host was so friendly and the interior looked refreshingly modern and stylish. The food was cooked to perfection, also something different from the usual classic Moroccan or Classic French that most restaurants serve. The service was friendly and personal and much more attentive than in many restaurants we have visited. If you are in town, don't miss this.

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

During your visit to Essaouira you must visit Umia! This was probably the best meal I had in Morocco. The ingredients are fresh and skillfully put together. The service is absolutely lovely and the setting is romantic and chic. We hope to have another visit to Morocco and if so we will definitely put Essaouira on the agenda with a visit to Umia!

“Loved It!”

This was the best restaurant experience we had in Morocco. Absolutely lovely setting and atmosphere. Excellent service, amazing food. We had planned on eating somewhere else but the owner of our riad told us we should go to Umia. Wonderful evening.
