We had a very nice time up here for a sun-downer and some snacks before heading for solid dinner elsewhere. The lights are cool and the music is funky. The views of Essaouira, especially from the very top are amazing. The mojitos are especially good, i thought!

The atmosphere was excellent, the menu was diverse, but our food was average and slightly cold when it came out. I'd come back for the atmosphere as there was live music, a nice drink selection, heaters for the terrace, and they offer poncho-style blankets for when it gets cold.

Taros has a great rooftop location, with excellent views, a cool vibe and good live music, but is frankly an average bar / restaurant flattered by lack of evening options in Essaouira. The fact we visited Taros three times in two days reflects more on dearth of diversion in the resort than the quality of the venue. An under-cooked lunch... More

This was a real find in Essaouira for a relaxing glass of wine and a cool beer over dinner. Perfect location overlooking the churning sea below and the locals strolling around town. Food was a refreshing change from tajines and cous cous and good value.

This is the whole Moroccan package. The terrace has amazing views of the sunset over the port. The food is fresh and delicious. The entertainment is really great - a magician and a hot band. And they top it off by given you Berber ponchos to keep out the stiff Essaouiran breeze.

English group of 6 (3 girls 3 guys). We spent most of the week in Marrakesh old town but took the 1.5 hour cab ride down to Essaouira. Unfortunately 2 of the guys were not very well but after a day in the apartment they wanted to get out for a couple of hours so on trip-advisor advice, we went... More

We were well aware that Taros was a tourist trap, despite this, we chose to spend an hour or two taking in the scenery and leaving the hustle and bustle of the Medina. We found a spare table on the terrace and waited a short while before heading the the bar to bet some drinks. The staff were busy tending... More

Taros ended up being one of our favorite places. We ended up there 3 times during our stay. Get there early (1.5 hrs or so before sunset) to get a nice table along the terrace edges. There are several levels and we preferred the upper one. You can also watch the activities on the main square if you get the... More
