I'm sure his place is great for a party night out, but for dins it was a pretty poor effort. We both ordered tagine with chicken and confit lemon. It was not inspiring and we won't be going back...

Slightly run down rooftop cafe restaurant with overpriced food and drinks, slow and slightly unfriendly waiters. -Load music starting 2000h.-Reminds me of 'Costa sel Sol' - Nothing to do with the authenticity of the average resto/cafe in the town. Great view though. Don't go if you have a wig, the strong wind will claim it!

I ordered the minced beef steak and it was gorgeous. There was a demi-glaze that I couldn't get enough of. The waiter chuckled when I asked if they could post a bottle to the UK for me....I wasn't kidding! Service was brilliant, the waiters spoke good English so it was good when asking about the different types of fish on... More

Taros is the perfect place to have a drink overlooking the city. They have a large selection of drinks to choose from. The live music is fantastic!

During a stay just out of Essaouira for 5 nights we became obsessed with this place. The setting is lovely, an array of roof top terraces to pick from. Staff are amazing and the food is really good. Live music every night that got the party started. Highly recommend.

Lovely views over the sea and lots of drink choice. Staff were attentive and quick to bring drinks. Only had drinks before dinner elsewhere but would recommend.

We've spent the last week exploring Essaouira and the surrounding area. We had dinner and drinks at Taros several times during this last week and have enjoyed the food, ambience and wine. I highly recommend spending an evening or two or three at Taros.

We wanted to see sunset unfortunately was very cloudy... but we shortly forgot about that when the band started playing and we got tasty dinner with fresh smoothie. Place is clean and nice designed ideal to take pictures with super seaview.

Located close to the fishing port of Essaouira, facing the few islands (where the last season of the Game of Thrones was being filmed), the restaurant offers various levels and terraces where one can eat, drink, listen to live music or watch TV. We had a wonderful dinner on the higher terrace, watching the sunset: oysters and lobster. The view... More

Great little bar for drinks and music on the terrace at night. Packed with tourist, locals and expats but really chilled. There was also live music
