    The forks were dirty or old looking . The cucumber salad was mushy and the room had a musty smell

    The food was awesome and it’s quite close to Trocadéro so we walked over to enjoy the Eiffel Tower light up. The restaurant vibe is also very cute.

    Very nice dinner in Paris for us. We had heard that there were good options for Moroccan cuisine in Paris and found Essaouira through Trip Advisor. We were promptly seated at our reservation time and the service was good. The staff appears to be a husband and wife team, with the husband working as the chef and the wife working as hostess and wait staff, so as the tables filled the service slowed a bit, but we never felt ignored and greatly appreciated their efforts and patience with our terrible French (she spoke much better English than we did French). We ordered different versions of the lamb tagine and all were very well prepared and quite tasty. Fresh bread reminded us we were in France, as well!

    Picked this restaurant as it could accommodate vegetarian and gluten free. Really enjoyed it, both food and service were really good.

    We'd never had Moroccan food before, and found this a great introduction. Delicious! We didn't know what to order so left it to the waitress and she brought us way more than we could eat, but we enjoyed it all. Wine selection was average. Would recommend.

    The decor was so beautiful and ornate, the service was attentive and made a great wine suggestion for our dinner. The food, oh my goodness the food! Out of this world! The couscous was so savory and delicious, the lamb tajine was so tender, no knife necessary. All of it was flavorful. Great expierence. And if you time dinner right you can walk around the corner and see the Eiffel Tower light up.

    This was a disappointing experience. Our booking was not really acknowledged although we were the only people in the restaurant at 7.30pm. We had to ask for a wine list and water (limited and expensive wine list), and the service was inattentive. The tagine and couscous were nothing special - my partner said I make better at home! We will not be back.
