The Nord Pinus Tanger is a real gem. It is within the original Kasbah in the Medina, the fortified Sultan’s castle in the old town. It affords stunning views across the Strait towards Andalucía, and is full of breathtaking originalMoorish features as well as some beautiful antique, vintage and funky Moroccan and European art and furniture.

The kitchen does a great job and dining here is a pleasure. With the markets almost next door, and the day’s catch landed within a few hundred metres, one is assured of fresh seasonal ingredients.

There is a roof terrace offering warming autumn sunshine for lunch or a view of the stars for dinner. In winter the inside dining room is more popular, full of ornately carved Arab arches and alluring candelabras.
