Great rooftop views

Upbeat, lively rooftop bar, beautifully lit at night. Licensed (unlike many cafes locally) so good for pre- or post-dinner drinks. Smart, efficient service.

We stayed indoors because Essaouria was a little cool that night, but I do not regret the choice as Taros Cafe turned out to be the best meal I had in my time in Morocco. Bar none. The whole experience was fantastic.

We went to this restaurant on the main room, not the terrace. The ambient is nice, the food is very good but the main attraction was an excellent magician that moved from table to table performing great magic! My kids, 13, 17 and 19 years old, had lots of fun and we kept waiting for him to return. Note: My... More

Lovely lunch in the sunshine! Food was very tasty and waiters were all very helpful apart from the head one who was distinctly grumpy! Apart from that a great location to view the sea and the square.

We sat in the indoor part as the roof top was too chilly on the night we visited. Staff were ok, nothing special. Our waiter was a little miserable throughout. Food was ok, again nothing to shout about but acceptable. Decor was a little dark for our tastes but that is very subjective. Probably best for drinks on the roof... More

We dropped in for quick refreshment break and were guided to the terrace which was a great sun trap - seeing as it was December and 23c we were in heaven! The service was friendly and jovial. We only had a couple of drinks and olives but the view of the atlanticand the town square and harbour were spectacular!! A... More
