Nice pastilla for a little price. The restaurant is on a terrace with a lovely view of the square. The owner is very polite. Avoid the toilets which seems to belong to more than one restaurant and smell bad.

after staying several days in Essaouira, I wanted to eat something tasty in a non-touristic atmosphere. My Moroccan friend took me to this quiet and cozy corner in the middle of Medina. Moroccan food, such as Tagine, cous cous, pastilla as well as fish are...More
