"Absolutely magical, the setting is magnificent, authentic Moroccan architecture. The Riad Essaouira is the ideal place to escape and recharge your batteries, the sound of the waves tickles your ears and brings serenity and peace to your soul. The service is top notch and the staff, Karim and Hasnaa, are very friendly, welcoming and attentive."
Bar and Restaurant
The Riad's restaurant is perched on the roof and offers a magnificent view of the ocean, the ramparts and the medina. It is the only restaurant in the medina to be so high up. A large terrace and a covered dining room with bay windows welcome gourmets who come to enjoy the Moroccan (but also international) specialities prepared by the chef.
Seafood and fish are also given pride of place. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served inside and out. The decor is sober and classic, with black wicker furniture, wrought iron chandeliers and a wooden ceiling. No alcohol is served in the restaurant.
Breakfast is served in a rooftop restaurant with a terrace overlooking the ocean.
" Magnificent restaurant in a very good location on the edge of the ocean and in the heart of the medina. We are delighted and recommend this establishment for its setting, its friendly, attentive staff and its cleanliness." -Jone Doe
Moroccan cuisine is considered to be one of the richest in the world. It is characterised by a huge variety of dishes: couscous, tajines, pastilla, mechoui, soups, spices, olives, salads, teas, pastries....
In addition to the diversity of these dishes, the originality of Moroccan cuisine stems from a multitude of influences, such as Arab cuisine dating back to the time of the Abbasids, Berber cuisine, particularly for couscous, Morisco cuisine for stews, tajines and the sweet and sour mix, sub-Saharan African, Jewish or South Asian cuisine, as well as all the cuisines of the Arab-Muslim world.
We have listed the most typical Moroccan dishes that all Moroccans know and love. If you're not familiar with these dishes, some of them on this list are well worth a visit, as you should try them at least once in your life.
