Cute little restaurant in the Medina, amazing food and good atmosphere. Unfortunately this is no secret as you will find loads of people queuing there in the evening. Service is very friendly. Thank you for a splendid evening.

It’s making my mouth water thinking about what to write. Delicious food. Reasonably priced. I would have liked to have tried all the menu. Unfortunately they close on Sundays. Best chocolate mousse I have ever had.

Just finished a very enjoyable meal at the Loft. It was excellent and the best meal I have had in Morocco. I had the beef tenderloin with pears. Also recommend the goat cheese egg rolls. Interesting and fun atmosphere. I highly recommend.

My family and I went for dinner here when in Essaouira and were not disappointed. The food was superb and the atmosphere in the restaurant was excellent. The choice of music was particularly good.
