We spent 3 days in Essaouira and enjoyed Les Alizes so much we ate there twice! The patron is really welcoming and the room very Moroccan. The menu is limited but the food is not only of excellent quality but is also very filling and very good value. The patron is from Casablanca and has been running the restaurant for... More

The restaurant was recommended by Lonely Planet, and we had a great course meal there. It was so quiet during lunch, which we liked. The food was very delicious and the service was attentive.

Very empty (at lunchtime) but very friendly with nice interior decoration. Set menu was very filling, lots of olives and bread offered. The soup was slightly bland, the meat tagine was very tasty, fruit salad a bit dull. Overall a good experience!

I would definitely return to this gem of a restaurant. The atmosphere is immediately welcoming and the service is genuinely friendly. The owner is also the server and host and it is very clear from the details that he has worked hard to create a popular culinary and social environment. The simple Moroccan dishes which you choose from a very... More

We found this restaurant through The Rough Guide. They weren't wrong with their review! The manager was incredibly helpful with the menu and guided us through the menu. We have been traveling Morocco for the last 3 weeks and we have tasted many 'Moroccan Soups' but trust me when I say this is the very best! Although it was a... More

I came back to this restaurant recently, having enjoyed such a good meal here two years ago that I have never forgotten it. I like the three course set menu idea; my boyfriend and I shared our two different mains (goat tagine and saffa with lemon chicken) and they were both absolutely delicious. The desserts surprised us; not sure how... More

We visited Les Alizes based purely on TripAdvisor reviews, in particular, a week review of Essaouira where they visited three times. What a little gem! As soon as we walked in, I knew we had found a brilliant little place. It is tiny on a small back street in the Medina. There is only space for about 15 people to... More

We visit Essaouira yearly and often eat here. Absolutely delicious tagine - we had the goat, saffa and lemon chicken all stunning. Excellent value for money, great host. The moroccan salad starter is an absolute must. We returned to try the giant pastilla and we were not disappointed - absolutely excellent, positively the best food we think in Essaouira. You...

We visited here having read good reviews but were disappointed as we were the only people there. We had a set menu costing 129 MAD. Wine was served but very discreetly! The meal was enjoyable, but not particularly memorable.
