With exposed brickwork, colourful tiling and a palette of deep, earthy reds and yellows, Tanger is more a treat for the eyes than the taste buds. This upscale Moroccan restaurant, recently relocated to an increasingly restaurant-packed part of Vila Madalena, serves an assortment of mezzes, tagines and couscous dishes. The Royal Couscous, a signature dish of succulent lamb, is particularly good, though the set lunch menu can be more miss than hit. The busiest nights are at the weekend and on Wednesdays, when there’s a live belly dance performance.
