Did these people go to a different place! My friend and I are still laughing about the "green soup". It was certainly green and peas were present. But it tasted of nothing! I'm a cook myself and make a lot of vegetarian and vegan food and would be ashamed to serve anything as tasteless as our meal. Vegetable tagine was... More

We are here 3 times during our 5 day stay in Essaouira. Wonderful intimate areas for eating, eclectic decor, beautiful lighting and the freshest food we ate in Morocco! Menu is slightly different every night and as vegetarians we were more than pleased each night . The fish dishes sounded great also. Something very different as the owner is French... More

Great little spot with a very cool interior. Great food on a very unique menu. Great service. Menu changes every day, but when we went all options were vegetarian or fish based.

I've been here twice and both the times were excellent. You better go and choose the courses for dinner already in the afternoon cos they cook fresh food and that's an important 'detail'. The food is great so are the people who work there and the place itself is very stylish and interesting. And yes... 'less is more', I agree!... More

The picture of Jimi Hendrix on the column across from our table was one of a few countercultural touches in Triskala Cafe, and the interior was the coolest we can recall in any restaurant we had been in for a long time. The night's menu of fish and vegetarian dishes reflects what the chef liked best in the morning market,... More

We love Triskala and been there a few times. They seem to serve more fish these days than previous years, but still have vegetarian choices available. The food and service is very good with the only down side being they open at 6pm, wish they were open for lunch.

A charming little place with great local food. I highly recommend - prices are also very reasonable. No wine though. It's in the Medina.

Great quirky little place with fun decor and nice comfy seating areas etc but the food was a tad average and not so tasty, portion size very generous,we definitely found nicer places to eat.

Cute, buzzy, healthy and welcoming. Tucked away is the tiny Triskala cafe. I jumped in and ordered an orange and fennel smoothie, smoked sardine salad with avocado and a mint tea. All were delicious, simple but perfectly executed. Pop in and chill the F out!

I stayed in Essaouira for 6 weeks this winter and returned to Triskala regularly bringing along groups of friends. The food is consistently great and very reasonable. It's an ever changing menu depending on what's fresh but my highlight was the swordfish with quince tagine. I love the fresh juice and the fact that they are no plastics, you won't... More
