We had a very pleasant lunch on the terrace on the beach. The waiter was great and the seafood excellent with huge serves. The local white wine complemented our meal. The price was very reasonable for the food, service and location.

Situee en bordure de mer, juste au-dessus de la plage aux mouettes et goelands d'Essaouira, la carte propose une cuisine mediterraneenne typique. Crustaces, oursins, gambas, calamars, langoustes et poissons entiers sont a la fete. Les serveurs prodiguent leurs conseils sous l'oeil attentif de Jeannot, le capitaine du Chalet de la Plage. La salle est "non fumeur", pour votre confort.
