This is an impressive building in of itself. Walking up the numerous flights of stairs to get to the rooftop gives you an idea as to how these maze like homes were built. I liked the vacation atmosphere of the place, I think it suits the young crowd. Seeing that we were there in mid afternoon we were happy to get a roof top table with a view on the sea and port. We had a plate of oysters which were very good. My mojito was not quite like I like it - far too bitter, I suspect there was no crushed or cane sugar and not as minty as I like - I learned to love mojitos in Havana so it might not be a fair comparison. The espresso coffee was very good. I am told that it can get loud in the evening.

The views are fantastic from the terrace. Looks like the evening has live music. We popped in for a late morning drink but it felt like we were an annoyance by not eating. The waiter barely made eye contact. We decided not to bother going back. The food looked great job judging by the other diners. They serve alcohol here too.

The only good thing about taros is the view but I still don’t think this makes up for the below average food. Ordered tagines thinking they would be a safe and even those were poor. The chicken didn’t come with any veg and the lamb was just oily. The drinks are also over priced. Maybe go for a coffee or drink and enjoy the view but DO NOT go for food when there’s so many better options in Essaouira!
