On one of these windy afternoons, we wanted to get some shelter and enjoy some drinks.
Empty glasses and coffee cups around our beach loungers.
Succeeded in getting a waiters attention to order some drinks after 45min. 30 min later still no drinks.
So we ask them again and get some room temperature rose wine..
The rubbish around us was never removed and it wasn't even busy.
Luckily some reggae music cheered us up, but it really seems that the management is not interested in their business, we would have spent 3x as much if they came round every now and then...

If you want a cocktail and a burger/pizza then this is the place. Great atmosphere and staff are friendly and food and drinks are lovely. A dj plays tunes in late afternoon and you can watch the world go by

Very nice bar, restaurant overlooking the beach! Really lively atmosphere, live music is played regularly, Would recommend having one of the pizzas on offer, perfect for an afternoon snack! Definitely the cool place to be in Essaouira!

We have been here three times this week and will go back over the weekend to watch the world cup final. The atmosphere is great, live music in the evenings. The last time we visited my son had a great thin crust pizza and I had the Vietnamese Salad and I can honestly say that I have never had a salad this tasty and filling. We tend to eat in the Medina eating mainly Moroccan food so this is nice change.

This week Beach & Friends held a free drinks / free food and FREE TOBACCO promotional event. Family oriented ?? We think not. They took loads of money from a British tobacco company and promoted make-your own cigarettes. The restaurant is overpriced and understaffed. The incompetent management is foreign and all profits leave the country in Euros so they contribute nothing to the local economy. They just employ Moroccans at below minimum wage. Avoid this place.
