Cavernous atmospheric Morrocan bistro/cafe attracting both locals and travelers and is located in an alleyway near the ramparts of Essaouira. The menu is largely un-Moroccan and served by the young and modern English-speaking staff. Miso or bissara (fava bean) soups, fresh and crunchy salads, omelets, and specialties such as vegetarian lasagna are joined by delights such as buckwheat pancakes. For something sweet, try the daily fruit tart, perhaps accompanied by a freshly squeezed juice or one of a large selection of herbal and chai teas. It's Wi-fi connected, and on selected nights they set up the DVD player and screens various environmental, wildlife, and cultural movies. Reported open by happycow member Mar 2013.

Tasty food, nice atmopshere

This was a nice place to eat, but I'm not sure if it should be listed as 'vegetarian', as they definitely served fish. Other than that, the food was great - I had delicious soup and unusual bread (with raisins and caraway seeds in it, I think) for starter, followed by falafel with loads of tasty salads. My friends had an even yummier starter, a pastry filled with lovely tomatoey stuff with a side of hummus.

The staff were clear and helpful about describing what was vegan or not, but I was accidentally given a salad with bechemel sauce on it (luckily I didn't eat it!), so it might be worth double checking things.

In general, it's a nice place, but a lot of the food is reminiscent of what you could get in a veggie restaurant in the UK so if you're looking for something a bit different there might be other places worth trying first. We still really enjoyed it though and the atmosphere was nice and chilled.

Pros: friendly staff, tasty food, nice atmosphere
Cons: serves fish, mistake with vegan food

Not really vegetarian!?

We, a young couple, didn't eat there; just saw the menu and decided to search something else because there was almost nothing vegetarian as main course listed. They could be categorised under veg friendly but lots of other restaurants in the town have more veg options than this one. On this day there was one vegetarian main dish only: Falafel. The rest was sea food! Disappointing...

La Triskalla is a hidden gem! So different from other places in Morocco, it's themed around rock and roll. A very cosy little place we sat on a 'top bunk' table and the owner was our host. He was happy to sit with us and explain the menu (all fresh and locally sourced including cheese from a nearby women's cooperative).

We had fresh juice, cheese and seafood for the carnivore and vegan options (falafel, vegetables and salads) for me. All delicious and reasonably priced.

I definitely recommend.

Pros: cosy, friendly atmosphere, vegan options, unique decor

Very friendly staff and delicious food. Something unique. They mostly have vegetarian food and fish and seafood. Might be hard to find, but look for signs of The Art Restaurant and Triskalla is right behind. It is not closed :o)
