“gloomy but serve fresh beer!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

the only merit of this cafe is to be located in the central area and to serve beer and wine.
other than that, it is in a courtyard which is rather sad and gloomy, and it s really a pity that the owner does not invest to make it elegant and inviting!!
I had a plate of grilled fish (not friture) which was not bad and I did not fall ill!!

“Wonderful place, lovely food and drinks, tremendously friendly staff, great location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2011

My fiance and I have been living and teaching in Tetouan for 3 months in winter 2011, and we've come to love Restinga as our favorite spot in town. It's near to the medina and the pedestrian streets, so it's very convenient to walking around the most interesting part of town. Most of all, the staff speak many languages, including English, and are gracious, warm, and extremely capable. The prices are very reasonable, too. You can dine for anywhere from 15 dirhams (for a nice bowl of hearty harira) to 125 dirhams per person (for, say, awesome grilled swordfish, soup, and a bottle of wine). The food is always good, and there are always little extras at the beginning of the meal - olives, chickpeas, bread, etc. Plus, it's the only affordable spot in town to grab a good ol' Flag beer (it's meh-beer, bottled in Tangier) or some very nice wine (also Moroccan, and honestly very good). There are always different kinds of people enjoying the open-air courtyard where food is served, and you can usually see locals and visitors alike relaxing and chatting here. It's by no means "fancy," but it's certainly comfortable, and offers much famed Moroccan warmth and hospitality in its modestly decorated ambiance. Honestly, if you're in Tetouan, it would be a mistake not to try this place. Try asking for recommendations from the owner or manager–you can't go wrong that way. The shish-kabobs are excellent (chicken and lamb), as are the fried fish and calamari. But you couldn't go wrong with anything there. Highly recommended.
