58 bis rue Touahen, Essaouira, Morocco, 4400

Serves meat, vegan options available. Cavernous atmospheric Morrocan 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 an 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 fresh 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. Open Mon-Sun 12:00pm-4:00pm, 6:00pm-10:30pm.

First Review by chelina

Hat meine Erwartungen nicht erfüllt - Edit

Sehr gemütliche, spezielle Einrichtung. Nettes Personal. Leider hat der junge Herr, der meine Bestellung aufgenommen, von vegan nichts verstanden und meinen Wunsch nach "no cheese, no eggs, no milk at all" nicht richtig weitergegeben, sodass ich erstmal Falafel mit Joghu
rtsoße übergossen bekommen habe. Ich habe dann nochmal erwähnt dass ich keine Milch esse und neue Falafel bekommen. Es war meiner Meinung nach immer noch eine Soße mit Joghurt dabei, die ich einfach habe stehen gelassen. Die Bissarasuppe war recht dünn, da hatte ich schon bessere.
Leider muss ich sagen, dass es in Essaouira veganfreundlichere Orte mit besserem Essen gibt.

Best in town - Edit

The best meal we had during our week in Essaouira. Three choices per night - one always seems to be veg and vegan. No vegan dessert the night we visited. Very high quality and a great price.

yum - Edit

This was the best place we ate in the whole town. There are only 3 starter and 3-4 main items on the menu (it changes every day) but the majority were veggie both times we visited. It was fresh and yummy! The bread was delicious, flavoured with carrot and cumin! Vegans might have an issue but it should be possible if you ask for the cheese to be left off. Very friendly and cheap. We like.

Cool place with good food - Edit

La Triskalla was a really nice surprise! The whole place has a really cool atmosphere and is a bit different than the usual medina restaurant. The people who worked there were extremely friendly and attentive. They serve filtered water in glass bottles instead of water from plastic bottles which is a nice little extra! As I understood it the menu changes everyday - when we came, they had three starters (around 25dh), three mains (around 50dh), one dessert (25dh) and one juice to offer and only one of the mains was with fish, the rest was completely vegetarian. We ended up sharing a leek and cheese pastry with a tomato salad and hummus on the side, filled courgettes with different veggies and a delicious apple and pear crumble for dessert and all of it was fresh and really tasty! The portions didn't seem huge, but even though we only shared a starter, a main and a dessert between two of us, we were completely full at the end of our dinner - will be back for sure if we get the chance!

Pros: Cool atmosphere, Fresh and local food, They care about recycling

Tasty food, nice atmopshere - Edit

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!? - Edit

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...

Amazing! - Edit

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

Extraordinary - Edit

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)
