good veggie Moroccan food

4 Posted on 02 / 12 / 2014

We didn't have high expectations going here since the food we'd had up to that point on our trip has been very unimaginative and bland. This place was different though as there was plenty to chose from for veggies and vegans alike.

There was the usual veggie tajine and couscous dishes, but with a variety of ingredients and flavours including tajines with beans and lentils, which is not so common in our experience. All the food was freshly prepared in the small kitchen by the friendly owner who was happy to hear that we found him on HappyCow.

If you're in town, I'd say this is your best bet for Moroccan veggie food

Pros: friendly owner , freshly prepared, interesting variety

I struggled not to cry...

The place is a sympathetic one man business, but despite the fresh ingredients and an hour long waiting, the food was absolutely tasteless. Moroccan cuisine in general is nothing for spice lovers, but usually the food is edible with some milder tastes. This one was just horrible. Unless you really really love the taste of over cooked carrots and plain couscous, I strongly recommend anything else but this.

Pros: Fresh ingredients, English spoken
Cons: Tasteless, Small portions, Very slow

We arrived with anticipation, as had heard about this place, but all the lights were out.. They had lost electricity, but the guy welcomed us with open arms and said he was still open.
We are so happy we chose to eat there, in candle light! Amazing lentil tanjine and the best olives I have eaten in morocco. Very impressed and portions almost big enough to share for 3.
Highly recommend, can't wait to return.

Pros: Quaint, Nicely decorated, Friendly helpful staff
Cons: Small

Really, really lovely!

We ate at several nice places in Essaouira and Marrakech, which did decent vegan food, but this was definitely our favourite. We were told that it was 'all fresh' and it definitely was! From the fresh veg and fruit smoothies to the tagines, it all seemed to be made there & then (we even saw the owner bringing veggies back from the market, then cooking them straight away for our food).

I had a tagine with preserved lemon and olives and it was delicious, we also kept getting brought lovely local bread to go with it (whenever we finished we were given more for free). It was also very relaxed - we sat there a long time each visit, and didn't feel hurried along at all. The food took a little while, as it was all cooked from scratch, but it was definitely worth it. Highly recommended if you want a fresh and tasty meal.

Pros: fresh, delicious, friendly, un-pushy staff
Cons: takes a little while (but worth it!)

Simple but nice

We found this restaurant easily, it's colourful and our waiter was friendly.

I had the daily special for 50DM, which consisted of a tomato salad starter and a choice of either vegetable cous cous or tagine for a main. I chose the cous cous. The portion was large with chunky vegetables but not much flavour.

Pros: friendly service, lots of choice, colourful decor
Cons: food lacked flavour

Best vegan food in Morocco

5 Posted on 02 / 03 / 2013

After several weeks of tagine and couscous of varying standards but often with the same ingredients this place offers a pleasant change. A wide range of vegan tagines, couscous and salads using fresh and varied ingredients all prepared in the small kitchen directly in front of you. Expect to wait a while for you meal as this is a one man show and the food is all prepared upon order. However, the restaurant is set in a quiet, sunny courtyard so we had no problem with the wait and the food was definitely worth waiting for.

Pros: fresh ingredients, wide variety of vegetables, great setting
Cons: none
