There's a fair choice of dining options in Tangier, as you'd expect from a bustling port city. However, apart from two recently opened Asian-influenced establishments, finding something different from the usual Moroccan/international combination proves difficult. The majority of the city's best offerings continue to revolve around traditional and nouvelle Moroccan cuisine, and those restaurants influenced by Morocco's neighbors across the Mediterranean.

At last count there were almost 15 beachfront restaurants below the street level of avenue Mohammed VI. And though most aren't particularly renowned for their food, a lot of them offer a lively atmosphere during the summer months. Once the holiday season tapers off, however, some of them close their doors. Besides a notable exception mentioned here, it's best to simply wander along the beach promenade and see what takes your fancy.
