“Beautiful restaurant and good food”
Reviewed 24 October 2011

We were blown away by the atmosphere of this restaurant, which is situated not far from the Talâa Sgerira. The riad is a beautiful mix of the ancient marrocan and modern style. The tables around a interior small waterpool in the middle of the patio. You can choose between a few cold and warm starters and 5 main courses. We tried the briouats, pastilla and salads and they were all very tasteful. As main course we took only meat, we didn't try the fish. Service was good.

“High-end Moroccan”
Reviewed 28 February 2011

the restaurant is in a luxury Riad. Arrive early and have a drink at the bar, and soak up the atmosphere. The venue itself is worth visiting. But do you need to experience the pricey restaurant, too (at least 3 times the price for a set menu at a regular tourist restaurant). We'd say yes. Riad Fes had far and away the best Moroccan salads we tasted during our week in Fez -- and we tasted a lot! Two different kinds of quince, spinach, a cauliflower mash, broad beans and preserved lemon... all outstanding. Our main course of chicken with olive, preserved lemon and onion jam was better than most, but so outstanding. Nice desserts and good Moroccan wine.

“Mediocre food at a grand Ripoff”
Reviewed 22 December 2010

We went to this restaurant based on the reviews as well as the recommendation of our Riad and were sorely dissapointed. The food was overly priced with small portions and truly mediocre. My husbands lamb was burnt and my beef dish was swimming in oil. The service quickly slowed to the point that we were forgotten in our corner as more customers came in. The desert was really not worth it. The only good thing was the wine we choose.

I would stay away from this place, it just isn't worth it.

“Delicious”
Reviewed 30 September 2010

Sophisticated take on Moroccon food that was a refreshing contrast from the homestlye meals that other local restaurants serve. Beautiful setting. Expensive relative to other restaurants in Fes.
