“Authentic and Genuine Cuisine in a Family Riad”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2011

The restaurant is set in the central courtyard of this Riad with a few tables, making it pleasantly quiet and peaceful. We have eaten here at this restaurant 3 times during our one week stay in Fes. The food is excellent, delicate & genuine. Highly recommended for lunch or dinner. The hosts will look after you well & will provide excellent service.

“Great family run restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2011

We visited the restaurant on a recent business trip and used it as a "working dinner".

Food was excellent and the choice was good. The hostess, Ghizlane is charming, full of energy and fun, generating a great atmosphere; whilst her Engilish is limited she has no problem communicating and making herself understood! Mark (her husband) is an ex-pat so speaks perfect English, French and Arabic so language is no problem if he's around.

If I had one concern it would be around the length that we had to wait for our meal however our party was 7 people and ....we all ordered different starters and main courses so it was a real "trial" for the kitchen - I daresay that as they get more experience the service will become more slick. Having said that .....the time that we were waiting was spent in good conversation, wine and relaxation.

For a genine taste of Morocco in a family run restaurant this is THE place to go.
