Visited with a friend. Had the vegetable tagine it was delicious, very flavorful. Oysters served with harissa sauce, amazing. The ambiance was interesting. Curtains dividing tables for privacy and to create the "Moroccan look". A belly dancer sashays through the restaurant dancing around the tables. I would return for the food.

If you're seeking something a bit different, have I got a place for you! Sit in a Sultan's tent with belly dancers shaking by while devouring a delicious lamb shish. Be sure to make reservations because this place gets really busy! Not the least expensive restaurant but 9 out of 10 times I leave feeling like I got my money's... More

The decor is quaint. The wait staff is very friendly and attentive. I ordered the Meze for an appetizer of hummus, olives, eggplant and pitas. Very tasty. For the main entree, I ordered the Frites*8 oz. tenderloin, mushrooms, truffle pommes frites, black truffle sauce steak that was cooked exactly right for me. The baklava was excellent. I went down stairs... More

Moroccan food is great, but most Moroccan restaurants are mediocre. It's a shame. Tangierino is mediocre, barely. DECOR: Ridiculous. This isn't 1975. It should be INSPIRED by Morocco, not a cheezy reproduction of the casbah. The worst are the tacky, dust collecting, red table curtains. Get rid of them. NOTE: The chairs look comfortable, but the seats are actually very... More

I have eaten at several great Moroccan restaurants & have to say Tangierino Brasserie is one of my 2 favorite Moroccan restaurant. The other one is in Paris on the 13th arrondissement. Tangierino is a must visit for great dinner, food & entertainment in Charlestown Boston. It's with in walking distance from the Navy Yard pier. Tangierino's tangine, couscous, eggplants... More

I have been experimenting with cooking Moroccan style tagines and other dishes and wanted to experience the real deal. The atmosphere was set with lush red walls, Moroccan photos and best of all curtains between booths. I was worried that the Hookah bar would render the restaurant with a bad odor but it did not. The belly dancer was fun... More

This is a Moroccan French place. Gorgeous, richly appointed dining rooms decorated in Moroccan themes. They prepare and serve their food carefully. On this (our second) visit we tried and loved: Appetizers - shrimp tagine (small portion, nicely spiced) - chicken b'stilla (terrific!!!) Entres - Cassoulet (vegetarian, very nice!) - Baked pasta (sweet ricotta cheese, nice touch) Dessert - Tiramissou... More

Had dinner here with a business associate. I thought the restaurant was great. Wine list is appropriately priced, the cocktails mixed well. I had the fried calamari, the hummus and the tuna tartare for appetizers. The lamb royal couscous was superb. I would return.

I had been here once before and had a good experience. We came back for tagine and couscous. The waitress immediately tried to impress upon us that it is also a French restaurant, and tried to get us to order cheese and wine. We did not want either, and I do not drink wine with Moroccan food. She proceeded to... More

One of our colleague is from Morocco, he booked the table for our IT team dinner: he cannot choose a better restaurant. The arrangement of the tables is amazing and private surrounded by colored fantastic curtains. Food is great: well presented and well cooked.

Staying in Charlestown

Neighbourhood Profile
Charlestown’s hilly roads, narrow streets and gaslight lamps, make it an enticing neighborhood to visit. Follow the Freedom Trail over the Washington St bridge from the North End or take the scenic water locks to Paul Revere Park. Walk through City Square and stroll down cute Main street, wandering up the windy residential streets to Monument Square, where you can learn about the city’s history along with a great view of Boston at the Bunker Hill Monument. While it’s not a huge area, there are some excellent restaurants. Find your way to the Charlestown Navy Yard, which is a developing area with lots of condos and an additional site for Massachusetts General Hospital research centers. Here you will also find the USS Constitution Museum. After you’re done, hop on an MBTA ferry at the dock on Baxter street and zip on over to Long Wharf and the New England Aquarium.
