We got real nervous when we realized we were the only people there. But the food was great. I had the seafood pastilla, and it was fresh and flavorful. The service was good, and the atmosphere lovely. Other places in the neighborhood wall fully reserved, but this gem was a nice escape from the crowds and a really great Moroccan... More

I stopped at Le Mogadorien because I saw the tripadvisor certificate of Excellence stickers, and wasn't disappointed. I had the aubergines salad (called "zaalouk") and it was light and well prepared, and since it was Friday, I also had a couscous, the veggies and the meat were well cooked, the sauce was kept on the side, so the couscous wasn't...

We wanted authentic Moroccan and found it! Delicious food in a warm and friendly environment. Small enough to be cosy but felt light and airy. Service was friendly and efficient with such lovely people. The card machine wouldn't work and we were told we could come back today and pay after getting the cash out of the bank. Well worth...

We had read some reviews on Trip Advisor which were OK so we thought we'd give it a go on our first night. It was dreadful. First of all three of the dishes we chose from the starter menu weren't available so we chose a Moroccan salad to share. It would be hard to find a more boring tasteless selection... More

What a lovely little place. It feels properly old school, surviving by doing a traditional fair at a decent price. Nothing blew my head off here and everything could have been seasoned a lot better but.......it's just simple, honest with excellent service.

My partner and I had another lovely lunch here. We last visited a year ago on our last trip to Essaouira. The food was as good as the first time. The service was attentive and friendly and the décor and background music was tasteful and delightful. This time it was a cold and extremely windy day so we opted for... More

Visited after reading other reviews and not disappointed. The Pigeon Pastilla was excellent and the Veg soup was veg soup. Somewhat surprised that the Sole Meuniere was 4 small fish rather than 1 large one (but that is probably just the local translation) anyway they were very tasty as were the chips that, although not on the menu, they russled...

We stopped in this restaurant during our visit to Essaouira. We were looking for fish restaurant, and this was by coincidence in the place. We ordered three fish meals and all three were excellent. Service was very friendly and customer oriented. Price was very reasonable. We will be back to this place again.
