Description: Le restaurant MB Fes a confie le design au celebre architecte Christophe Pillet, dont le talent est salue dans le monde entier : celui-ci a cree un univers enveloppant, mineral et graphique.Imagine comme une luxueuse terrasse interieure sur deux niveaux, le restaurant se veut vertigineux et vertical, avec des falaises de pierre naturelle grise. Ses murs et ses plafonds en miroir fume refletent, a l'infini, l'ensemble des perspectives et donnent a l'espace clair et lumineux une impression de demesure et de restaurant a ciel ouvert. Des jeux de volumes, de hauteurs et de contrastes architecturaux exceptionnels permettent d'y passer un moment inoubliable pour un dejeuner d'affaire, un diner en tete-a-tete, ou une celebration familiale.Le mobilier cree par les plus grands fabricants italiens (Harry Bertoia, Academia, Arper...) s'inspire de l'art contemporain : chaque espace a ete pense pour allier confort et modernite.Avec une capacite de 100 couverts, il s'inscrit dans la lignee de l'elegance et de l'excellence. Situe en plein centre-ville, en face de l'hotel Jnan Palace, MB Fes vous accueille aux pieds d'un immeuble contemporain aux lignes pures..

“FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2013

Picked out this restaurant from reviews. It is a great find for a bit of gracious, refined dining away from the Old Town and too many tourists. Good selection of dishes & wines in a hushed and modern setting.

“Hip Atmosphere, Good Food, Terrible Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2012

Really interesting hip decor. Our salmon tartar was outstanding, martinis were really good, wine was priced ok. We shared the steak with fois gras.....really good, but a bit on the small side....only two small potatoes included. We had to order extra vegetables which were just ok. Dessert was good. Asked for our coffee to be delivered with the dessert, but that didn't happen. Coffee came first, dessert much later. When we asked about that they brought more coffee but charged us for it. In general the service was terrible, inattentive and confused. We repeatedly had to ask for our wine to be refreshed. There weren't that many people in the restaurant, but the waiters kept pulling a disappearing act. To make matters worse the taxi ripped us off on our return to the hotel, asking for twice the price of what it should have been.

“International quality at Fes prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

Reading the other reviews of Maison Blanche, I can only conclude that the reviewers were not used to a very sophisticated cuisine or the restaurant is very unpredictable. My wife and I had lunch there recently and were stunned by the quality of the food, service and ambience. The room is hip and modern with a great sound track playing. We were served an amusee bouche of pureed beet, pomegranate and tomato which was out of this world. For a starter, I had a salmon tartare with very refined sauces with wasabi and soy flavoring. Absolutely delicious. My wife had the dourade and I have the bar Moroccan style for our main courses. Both were scrumptious although the bar had seasonings and a spicy carrot side dish that made it special. For dessert, we shared a complicated chocolate praline with a frozen raspberry gel. Again, very good. I had a glass of the house wine which was decent and cheap. My wife observed that we had a Michelin meal for just a bit more than the "European" or fancy Moroccan restaurants charge in Fes. Okay, maybe we got them on a good day but the care in the cooking and in the plating of the meals was very high quality and indicators of a first class restaurant. Similarly, the waiter stumbled a bit in English but was very professional and attentive. We have only praise and no complaints.

“Nice and cosy with good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2012

Really nice place to visit in order to take a glass of wine or to have nice meal in a cosy place. The bar is upstairs where you can smoke and seat etheir near the bar or in a nice cosy seats drinking your wine. Downstairs we had dinner in a non smoking area with is wonderful. Risotto with shrimps was delicious. Attentive and fast service is big plus for this place. Hope to come to this place again and recommed it very highly.
