Fodor's Expert Review Elizir

$$$$ Essaouira Mediterranean

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

Amid a collection of retro objets and mismatched furniture, you can enjoy a short but fine menu of Moroccan-Italian fusion cuisine. Diners are seated in a number of small rooms with kitschy decor—if you're lucky, you might spot a visiting celebrity. This is consistently a local favorite: the menu features the best steak in town, alongside some twists on Moroccan classics such as chicken tagine with blue cheese. Owner Abdellatif prepares the steaks himself, having spent nine years in Bologna; he claims Moroccan chefs don't do rare or medium-rare—only well-done. There is a limited wine list and the desserts are fabulous.
