Funky Rooftop Bar

We went to the Taros several times during our stay in Essaouira for drinks on the rooftop bar. There was always a lively atmosphere with live music playing. The rooftop terrace is huge and has plenty of seats over a few levels. Drinks are reasonably priced and the bar service is pretty good. The... read more

We attended this restaurant three nights in a row once we found it. Could not get enough! The food is absolutely outstanding and their is a wide range of drinks both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. There is a perfect mixture of traditional Moroccan cuisine and some fresh dishes that are perhaps more widely common. All of the meals we had were... More

Visited more than once in Essaouira for dinner! Can't recommend highly enough the blend of character, with the cactii/ponchos, the great live music every time we went, the fantastic food - but best of all, the view from the rooftop restaraunt is spectactular. You're missing out if you don't go here in the evenings to see the sunset! Highly highly... More

Amazing atmosphere, buzzing with live a band, we went for dinner on a Friday night, food was excellent, would recommend the lamb. Waiters were quite slow but this was understandable, seen as the place was literally packed. Would definitely recommend coming here for drinks, great bar and great cocktails. After the meal a fantastic magician was walking around entertaining the... More

I was there with my kids for lunch. apart from the very disappointing service and the overpriced price, they stole our mobile phones when there were no customers. waiters that have no training in the hotel business and the service turned us around like vultures. and when I complained to the manager, he said it must be a server and...

Taros is a great place to visit for either drinks or food. It has terraces on different levels with great views of the sea (gets a little windy, but the staff give you ponchos to keep the chill off). They make a mean cocktail, good wine list, and the food was very, very good. They have live music most nights... More

A central bar playing live music in the evenings. Great atmosphere with a backdrop of sea and stars. Dodgy cocktails but overall a great night out for two generations

Best parts of the meal were the view and talking with our waiter about Moroccan culture. The food was alright, but nothing special. I had tagine of sardines, husband had lamb. Wine was alright.
