This riad serves an excellent dinner. In Fez itself it is very difficult to find the nice restaurants, therefore after 2 failures, we decided to have dinner every evening in our riad. It was a very good add-on to our stay in this very good riad.

We ate dinner here two of the nights during our stay. We had the best chicken, lemon and olive tagine we had in Morocco and the lamb and pear tagine was really one of our favorite meals ever!! Delicious. And great people. I would absolutely stay here again and would eat even more meals here the next time.

There's only so many times during your visit to Morocco that you want to eat local food as eating tagine every day like many of them do gets boring but the tagines cooked here are exceptional...I have eaten them many times before but never as good as the chicken, lemon and olive one cooked here. The meat was so soft it flaked from the bone and the vegetables and sauce were mouthwatering good. The starters which were several different types of dips were also great flavours. Sweet course was a lovely thick chocolate mousse the first time and a fruit crumble the second. We finished everything on the table it was all so good. We ate here twice, the second tagine was lamb, also very tasty. If you want to eat here you need to reserve in advance. Let them know at least before 12 midday on the day you wish to eat as their tables might already be booked by staying guests of the riad and they also source their ingredients fresh every day depending on how many people are booked to eat there. Dinner is usually served from 8pm. It's a stunning courtyard to eat a meal in too, with beautiful carved and tile decorated pillars up to the second gallery landings, gorgeous tiled floors, a soaring ceiling height, palms and hanging vines...stunning and the best we saw in Morocco, They have patio heaters for the cooler months like January. The staff are attentive, kind and friendly...and very helpful with any requirements you may have. They serve alcohol. We also stayed here for 7 days in one of the suite rooms, it was a great experience.

We ate here for two of the three nights we stayed at the Riad (we decided to try somewhere else another night and we're hugely disappointed so went back for dinner at the Riad the last night). The food tasted beautiful and traditional (authentic). A delight.

We enjoyed our three course meal in this beautiful riad in the medina. We really enjoyed our cauliflower and eggplant starters and the lamb tagine was really nice. We had a few tagines on our trip and this was our favorite - nice poached pears went with it. After our meal we were allowed to walk around the riad. It really is quite pretty and is one of the taller two story riads we saw.
