Fodor's Expert Review Umia

$$$$ Essaouira Modern European Fodor's Choice

This chic restaurant tucked away along the skala is a real treat. The daily changing menu—prepared in an open kitchen—blends seasonal and local ingredients with French savoir faire. The airy restaurant draws in a clientele of expats and tourists with its muted dove grays, glossy white furniture, and quirky art touches, such as a gorgeous Gnaoua mural. Be sure to try the goat cheese from a women's co-op in nearby Meskala; you also can't miss the chocolate fondant with salted caramel ice cream.
