Very small restaurant, hidden in the dark labyrinth of the Essaouira Medina, don't worry, even in the night small dark empty streets leading to the restaurant are safe. But before you head on, reserve! It's very small, 20 or so places. Menu is short, 3...More

We just had dinner in O'Bleu. We enjoyed each spoon from starters to main. Especially, the lobster with langoustine was to die for. Thank you Serge & the team. We will come back.

When planning our second trip to Essaouira a visit to O'Bleu Mogador was at the top of our list. And Serge and the staff certainly didn't disappoint. It's (in our opinion) an expensive meal for Essaouira, but the food/experience would cost a fortune in a...More

Very kind owners. Food is excellent but you better be 'super' hungry if you go there and take the full menu. Restaurant is located in a small dark street (but very secure). Price are a bit expensive but certainly worth!

I went with my girlfriend and was immediately impressed with the setting in the restaurant. It's very authentic, small and is filled with cushions! We had the mixed starter and then I had the monkfish main. The starter had some nice parts but there wasn't...More

Tucked away in a quiet old city street, the atmosphere is romantic. The menu rotates depending upon what is fresh. All dishes were excellent, particularly the roasted monkfish and lamb. A desert tasting included an outstanding roasted fig ice cream. Wine is available, which is...More

Usually I'm a skeptic when it comes to fusion, but Chef Serge delivered hearty, delicious and interesting food throughout. The place is very romantic and somewhat hidden. We didn't have a reservation and just walked in on a week night and got a table. Service...More
