La Table Madada is a former carob warehouse where the king's traders stored their goods in order to export them to Europe. Today this restaurant is renowned for its fish and shellfish, but other dishes are available as well. Reservations are essential.

The bar, both chic and relaxed, offers a different daily cocktail in addition to its already extensive drinks menu. There is occasional live music.

The Comptoir Madada sells a selection of furniture, carpets, crockery, and African crafts reminiscent of the days when Essaouira was an old trading port nicknamed "port of Timbuktu" for its trade with Senegal or Mali.

The hotel has a lovely terrace with a great view of the port.
