Service is more european, white table cloths, napkins, good-looking male waiters - all is classy. Fresh fish, spanish cuisine - ggod but not exeptional. You can find better in Ceuta or Tanger. Maybe for M'diq it is high level... More

Very cosy place with the sea view. Tasty seafood. Attentive and helpful staff. I usually go there when I am travelling to Tetouan. It's my favourite place there.

Cocodrilo had just one flow for me and that was the interior - we were seated on the second floor and it had a weird greenish light... It didn't really provoke any feelings of cozyness. However, the food is truly delicious! They serve different types of fresh local fish including the so called "chupitos" - baby sepias. Morocco is one... More

While living in Morocco, this restaurant became a 'must do' every time we went to M'Diq. The service is faultless from their top notch maitre 'd. The food just the best. My favourites were squid and mussels, but also enjoyed the seafood platter. Also the complimentary tapas and samples of other things on the menu were a nice touch. Having... More

We were taken to El Cocodrilo by friends and promptly went back there the next night. The food was great and plentiful - not to mention the free tapas that came with it. The Moroccan wine and lager was delicious and the bill was very reasonable. The staff were excellent. We will definitely be going back. If you are in... More
