Il Mare Essaouira Reviews
Great view and lovely food May 29, 2011
Il Mare is located inside the Medina, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. It´s a perfect place for watching the sunset.
You can dine inside or outside on one of the two rooftop terraces. It´s quite windy there, but a great place to enjoy a lovely dinner while the sun I setting. The menu is mainly Italian and seafood, but you can also get Moroccan tajines. If you don´t care for fish, there were some meat options. The menu was in French, English, German and Italian, so as you can see they do serve a lot of tourists.
Even though they did not have all the main dishes on the menu, they did have a good variety of fish. Pasta, gnocchi and pizza were of course also on the menu. Appetizers were just under €10, mains between €10-€25 and desserts €6-€9. These prices are not expensive if you compare it to Europe, but for Morocco they certainly are.
As an appetizer I ordered the fish soup, which was good, and a dorada as main dish. I´m not used to getting the fish with skin and bones in a restaurant of that quality, but it was excellent. I could not help myself and ordered dessert as well, a crêpe with apples in a calvados sauce. Excellent!
The interior was rustic, but very colorful and a live band was playing African music. The waiters were very nice, helpful and efficient. Il Mare accepts credit cards.
I would absolutely recommend Il Mare, especially for a romantic sunset dinner.
