Restinga has tables set around a huge fig tree. The waiters cooed well with English, Spanish and French. The food is quite average but pleasant. The availabilty of alcohol is a boon for some.

The location is unbeatable and the staff is very friendly but the food is not exceptional. Not specially cheap, but the price ratio is reasonable.

We stayed in Tetouan for 2 days and we had once lunch at restinga. If you use maps, be careful to follow direction for 21 avenue mohammed V. The staff is really nice, the food ok

My girlfriend and I stopped for lunch and a beer here while strolling through Tetouan. We had some good fried calamari and fish. Excellent service and friendly staff. Good value.

Not easy to find, off the main road through a passage. Simple interior, but very tasty food and very reasonably priced, they serve wine. Try the crevettes!

After several hours getting wonderfully lost in Tetouan’s stunning Medina, what better than an ice cold “Flag” under the shade of the tree in Restinga’s beautiful courtyard. The superbly moustachioed MD seems to be fluent & charming in every language under the sun. Lovely, simply cooked, fresh fish. I wish I was there right now !

The food (soup and chicken couscous) was tasty and plentiful and the prices seemed reasonable to us. Our dishes were accompanied by a complimentary appetizer as well as free bread and olives. We ate outside... More

Tetouan in February is not the best place to find an open restaurant. The Restinga had good, freshly prepared food, & also served beer and wine (very hard to find elsewhere!) and lovely complementary olives and a warm chickpea starter. Service was good. You'll need to eat early, though, as it seems to close at 8.30 every evening!

The Restinga is in the mein street of Tetouan (Mohamed V).It is very close to the medina, so it is nice place to rest after a visit. I have never eaten inside; I think it is better to try the patio. The food is not exceptional, but grilled fish is very good (as in many places in this city). Do... More

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... More
