Good for cocktails

This is a perfect place to have cocktails with the sun setting behind you but the service and food wasn't anything special. The waiter was disinterested and didn't seem to care whether we enjoyed our meal or not. I'd go again for cocktails but there are far better places for food and service!

We went there actually for work and was finishing up the evening. We thought we'd all go out for a drink. Looked like we were walking into a bit of a hole in the wall. When we walked up the stairs the place totally opened up. Very big multi layered area that was built for dancing, drinking, and people gazing.... More

Perfect restaurant and bar on three levels near the ocean. Live music most evenings on the rooftop terrace. Music ends at 10:45 PM, which is perfect for evening hours. Full bar and delicious sea food. International clientele.

Its of course a tourist trap as many of the neighbouring places. Taros has a very nice roof terrace, they serve winr and thw food is ok. Service is slow and unattentive. Works fine for a drink or casual lunch

The view from this terrace is top notch and probably the best you will find in Eassouira. However, my friend and I were traveling through and had heard about taros, so had to stop. I absolutely Loooooove the terrace, however, the server was quite rude to my friend and personally offended her. Unfortunately it left a bitter taste in our... More

Went last week - what a place! Great service, great food and great drinks! The highlight is the live music - a real treat, with musicians joining in from the audience. The coolest bar on the planet......

with exquisite ocean views, this is the perfect place to chill after a busy day. As it can be breezy and/or chilly, bring a jumper or a wrap. The staff was great - even replacing a GnT after a seagull had the gall to make a direct deposit in it.

The perfect place to enjoy pre-dinner drinks watching the sunset and listening to chilled music. We went every night of our long weekend before going elsewhere for dinner. Food is served here but didn't look particularly great. However fantastic ambience and music for drinks. It gets very busy around 7 so best to arrive a bit before to get the... More

To be frank we went late and even with the blanket it was so breezy it was very cool, no actually cold and this rather spoilt the night. Nothing at all to do with the food . The grilled se bream was excellent as was the beef. Staff very polite but they were rather distracted by a large group. Great... More

Great spot for an afternoon drink or in the evening, they had great live music which was really enjoyable however the food is incredibly average. I would suggest going before or after dinner.
