It didn’t take long to identify La Giralda as one of those “go to” places for eating and drinking. There are many reasons it gets high marks. The incredible view is one of the main ones.
La Giralda is located on rue de Pasteur directly overlooking the Terrasse de Paresseux. The large windows open to let in the nice breezes and the cigarette smoke out, gaze on a postcard like vista of palm trees, terraced gardens, and the sea.
The dining room is sumptuously decorated with a beautifully carved ceiling, tapestried curtains, upholstered seats, and columns. You will feel like you are in a place much more expensive than what you will pay for the pleasure of tea, coffee, breakfast or a light lunch here.
The menu is made of up an assortment of breakfast items, crepes (both sweet and savory) and some sandwiches. Tea, coffee, and juices are offered for beverages. You can eat a large brunch for two for less than 10 euro.
I like to order omelets with cheese and mushrooms, toast and coffee. The plate is always decorated with some cucumbers, tomatoes, and olives. Fresh squeezed orange juice accompanies most orders. There are some Moroccan specialties on the breakfast menu such as dried beef with eggs that you should definitely consider.
All types of juice drinks are popular in Morocco. You can usually order whatever combination you like depending on what is in season. For example orange and banana, banana and strawberries, or my favorite, milk, and avocado are all good choices. It sounds peculiar but it’s absolutely delicious.
With the cooler weather, this is the perfect spot for Sunday brunch and we take advantage of it often. The service is splendid and I assure you that you won’t be disappointed on any front. I’ll take you here when you visit Tangier.
