We had a terrific meal celebrating the seafood being caught in the Atlantic just off Essaouira. I ordered a half dozen oysters which were very tasty. I was surprised that the tops were served along with the oysters in the shell. Three of us enjoyed three small grilled sole, a very generous serving. The other had a mixed lightly fried seafood plate which he very much enjoyed.
We were seated inside at the window overlooking the beach.
Musicians passed by playing music which was a treat.
There are tables outside as well with umbrellas if you wish. Prices are quite fair.
We enjoyed some Moroccan wine with the meal.

My chicken was chewy, my fries were greasy, and my chocolate lava cake was served chilled. It did not seem like anyone in the kitchen had any real skills in preparing food. Our table on the patio was on the edge closest to the beach so we got solicited by vendors and performers throughout our meal. The service was quite good. Noticing that I had eaten very little of my lunch, our waiter offered to get me something else. He was also attentive throughout the meal.

I am certain that you can find somewhere better to eat.

This restaurant is used by coach companies when on a day trip from Marrakech, we’ve been taken here twice now. If you are on a coach trip you are likely to get faster service, it’s sometimes a bit hit and miss although the staff try to get around to everyone as best they can. The sea bream was nicely cooked and very fresh. The toilets are clean.
