Authentic Moroccan but also very quirky. A must to visit as it’s rather unique, in that it’s tiny, traditional and only ten diners at one time. The food was delicious and so very cheap. The service was warm and welcoming. Great for a chilled night.

It's only got 5 tables so can cater for 10 but we got a lunch table within 10 minutes. Friendly service from the two ladies who run it and a perfect small menu of a dozen dishes. Rice and green beans, fruit juices and bread...More

Me and my boyfriend visited here twice during our five day stay in Essaouira and tried to come a third time but unfortunately it is closed on Fridays. The place itself is very small and quaint, but that just adds to the atmosphere. The two...More

when we saw the place it really looked like a little hole in the wall, but later on it was much more than it. Good food, friendly women who run the place, great experience!

I dont know if they are open during ramadan, but they definitely do not serve alcohol - for alcohol you go to beach and friends, ocean vagabound or Taros (Also during ramadan)
