We were in Essaouira for the day and came across this little restaurant near the wall and stopped for lunch. I had been unwell the previous evening and knew exactly what I wanted to eat to help. It was not on the menu but when I explained to the lady on the door she went to the chef and asked if it was possible, and it was. It was beautifully cooked and well presented. My husband had a fish dish also and he thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were attentive and helpful and I could have no complaint about the service or food.

Hello fellow travelers!!! Been travelling around Morrocco for the past 2 weeks and totally fell in love with Essaouïra!! The only thing missing to make it perfect was a place where i could relax, enjoy good food and a good atmosphere.... Then i came across Le Chrysalis... What a place! Friendly staff, amazing food, not pricey and great place to unwind after a long day out. Will definatly be recommending it to my friends, and will also most definatly come back!!! Make sure you stop there on your visit!! Loved it!!xxx

This newish restaurant set in gardens alongside Medina walls is a good newcomer to town. The terrace is nice to have lunch & inside looks good for dinner. Service was good. Choice of food was very good with meals that can't be had elsewhere in Essaouira. Black pudding always welcome! Charcuterie excellent, salmon dishes plus duck.
Bit pricy but a good treat.

The sole meuniere was as good as one would get in a top class European restaurant - straight out of the sea in a light batter with almonds. Service efficient and courteous. Price close to Irish prices for a good lunch - which wasn't cheap but worth it.
Well worth patronising - close to the Bus terminal and the beach.
