We went to the restaurant as a result of the good reviews from Tripadvisor. When we called to book, the staff very politely offered to send someone to walk us to the restaurant as it is not very easy to find (and also offered to have someone walk us back at the end of the dinner).The clientele of the restaurant was only tourists. As for the food, it was rather disappointing, having in mind the Tripadvisor ratings. The Kefta came in a very small portion and was nothing special (8 euro). The beef with vegetables was mediocre (10 euro). Overall,the price tag did not adequately reflect the quality-quantity of the food and this restaurant should definitely not be so high up in the ratings.

Thank you for taking the time to write this opinion. I am disappointed to read that you found the portions a little small for your appetite all. This is not the opinion of the majority of our customers are contrary to Najmat the dishes very tasty and filling. Our kitchen and the dishes we offer are not those of the traditional Moroccan cuisine, we strive to create balanced meals and healthy with quality products. The prices of our dishes are very moderate, between € 4 and € 10.
I am glad you enjoyed our friendly and we came up at your hotel and we have graciously escorted.
In a next visit and if you are particularly hungry do not hesitate to let us know.

The portions are small but the food is quite good. We ordered the Thai chicken which was very good although not big enough to satisfy, the chicken pastille which was served with icing sugar and cinnamon, which took away from the flavour (i am not a fan of sweet and savoury combined) the chicken tagine which was served in a more modern style. All in all the price tag is very reasonable (€30 euros for 3 mains and 2 big bottles of water)

A big thank you for your opinion. We are always very happy when our customers appreciate the quality of our cuisine and dishes that we offer both the traditional Moroccan cuisine or exotic dishes like Thai chicken that you liked. Pastilla which is a famous dish of the cuisine of Fes is always salty sweet with fines, cinnamon and covered in icing sugar.
Pastilla Najmat is very popular but you obviously love the salty sweet mixture. As you noticed our prices are very low.

We enjoyed our meal very much!!! We eat a very good lamb and a surprising good lasagne - all cooked in a modern morrocan style, we also loved the starters! We haven't found any similar for this price in the medina. The service is very friendly and helpful, nice ambiance - we discovered this place by chance, unfortunately at our last day! We can recommend this nice and very good restaurant!!!

Thank you for taking the time to write this review as laudatory Najmat.
We are delighted that you had a great time in our restaurant and have loved the dishes you have tasted the lamb shanks and lasagna are among our favorite dishes of our customers and that is not used in the restaurants in the medina. Our menu also offers some unique specialties such as our new dish, "Chicken Yassa" a specialty of Mauritania and Senegal that we will be pleased to discover during your next visit.

Just had a wonderful dinner at Najmat Souafine!
It is not very easy to find in the medina, but we were glad we made the efforts searching it. It has a nice terrace on top (inside also looked lovely, but weather conditions made us decide to choose the terrace), the staff was lacking the english language but was extremely nice and helpful, and above all the food was great (chose the chicken tajine with abricots)!
With also some locals on the terrace and some locals arguing in the house next to the restaurant it makes you feel in the authentic heart of the medina and not on a touristic spot... Recommend it!
