We had a bit of a birthday feast for my mum here and it was great. We loved the starters (soup, salad and Moroccan stuffed pastries), the main meals (a tagine and a dish from goat) and the desserts (amlou, biscuits, Moroccan tea and a kind of ice cream). This is a really quality restaurant and a really nice way... More

Some random guide was trying to get us to hire him and we said we wanted to eat so he dropped us there. Skeptical but hungry we went in. To our pleasant surprise we had an excellent lunch in a lovely setting. Private corner, nice music, very clean. We ate the best chicken/prune/apricot tagine in Morocco and perfectly cooked calamari.... More

Good service and food in this small oasis. Breakfast was nice. Dinner had typical Moroccan choices, but all done very well. We brought some beer in ourselves.

The dinner was so good the first night we had dinner again the second night even though we had many choices of other restaurants. When we asked the owner if they served alcohol he told us about another riad about 100 meters away that serves wine and beer.

We spent almost a full month in Morocco, and this small restaurant had the best chicken tagine with preserved lemon that we ran across: forget Fes, Marrakesh - you'll find it here.

An elegant restaurant, tucked away in one of the blocks of the city, popular with tourists. It serves good quality food in a nice environment, inspired by the typical house of this area. You can taste traditional Moroccan dishes, with a triumph of bittersweet in many dishes of lamb; but also in the ones based on fish. The restaurant does... More

Having eaten at Riad El Reducto, we tried Blanco Riad and it was superior to our dining all over Morocco!! The waiter/manager is a lovely young guy who is very engaging, and wants to ensure you have a nice experience.

Eating at Blanco Riad was possibly one of the most unexpectedly positive experiences we had in a month of happy travelling in Morocco. The food was unbelievably good and would have been exceptional in London or Paris. It was certainly the best food we had in Morocco...and who would have ever expected it in Tetouan. Mediterranean food with a French... More

Blanco Riad is a hotel with 8 rooms and a restaurant. We offer breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. We have a nice terrace where to have tea and biscuits at any time of the day. Our kitchen is traditional Moroccan with some modern Moroccan dishes. We cook with local products. Eggplant cannelloni stuffed with seafood on olive paste and honey, goat tagine with caramelized figs or seafood pastela are some of the plates that we offer. The starters cost 40 dh (less than 4 euros) and main courses 80 dh (less than 8 euros).
