Good sunset spot with full bar and fun magician

Enjoyed meeting friends here for a sundowner. Widest selection of drinks in Essaouira and they make very good margaritas. The magician and the band were also really good. A must-visit.

The view from the terrace is really good! This is the main strong point of the place. The drinks there are expensive and so is the food. My friend and I ordered a fried camembert as a starter (to share but the waiter forgot to bring the extra plate). The main course (lamb with garlic crust) was way too fat... More

Good points: - Really nice view on Essaouira beach - Nice terrace as a whole, sunny and clean - Nice waiters, proposing you other places or hats if it is too much sunny Bad points: - This is clearly a restaurant for tourists: they have in total 3 Moroccan dishes on their menu, and a lot more which are typically...

Nice place to eat and party but a bit expensive than many others. Good service, nice dishes, nice live bands at night.

Located just off the main square and up a challenging set of stairs, we found this great place for lunch, offering a good view of the harbour and beach. Service was friendly and efficient. We had the artichoke and aubergine tarte tartin, and stuffed sardines, both of which were very tasty. A lovely way to spend a relaxing lunchtime.

Went for lunch... then went back for dinner as we'd enjoyed lunch so much. Think that's a first!! Really loved Taros. The terrace is fantastic, all white and blue seaside paintwork with terrific views over the port and the sea. We drank cocktails from a well stocked bar whilst the sun went down, with our taros supplied ponchos on to... More

Fantastic view from the terrace overlooking the main square and port. The filet St Pierre (John Dory) was excellent as was the duck. Oysters were tasty and fresh. Can get a bit chilly of an evening on the terrace but the restaurant provides ponchos for customers which is a nice, considerate service.

Perfectly good lunch - tagine de merlan (that's hake balls to you and me), good bread and olives, and a bottle of Casablanca beer - and reasonably good service, but what lifts this place into the fourth star is the roof terrace with its view across the Place Moulay Hassan and down past the port to the huge curving beach....
