Description: The Fez Café is a charming Moroccan bistro set at the edge of our vast garden and topped by an immense rooftop terrace - perfect for a dinner under the stars. Under the careful guidance of Michel Biehn himself, a Provencal food connoisseur with three award-winning cook books to his name, our chef at the Fez Cafe crafts a market-fresh menu every day which draws its flavours from the Morocan tradition, the East, and the home-grown organic vegetables from our own garden. We only use fresh seasonal ingredients. Our bar and Foosball table help make it a fun Medina meeting place. Open everyday for lunch, and dinner. Michel Biehn is the author of several award-winning cookbooks published in France, Europe and the United States. For a few hours or a few days, Michel Biehn, aided by his wonderful Chef Hicham, the head chef of the FEZ CAFE, will be happy to share with their guests, their oriental recipies and secrets of Moroccan cuisine.The cooking class starts by shopping on the market with Si Mohamed, followed by the actual cooking of the selected recipies with both Michel and Hicham. Then, it will be time to enjoy the prepared meal. Price:80 € per person.

“Great Oasis in the bustling Medina”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

This Cafe/Restaurant is superbly located in the centre of the Medina - an oasis amidst the bustle and cramp of its surroundings. The food was simple but of a high quality and good value. The service was warm and efficient. The setting was stunning - in the midst of a lush and well tended riad.

“Good place for restful dinner”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

After long bus ride and the bustling medina, we were delighted to see the beautiful garden, tasted the refreshing wine. The restaurant does not have set menu, waiter showed us that night's offers on big blackboard. We had fish pastilla, which was not sweet and very good. We had leftover next day and it was still good. Would definitely visit again next time we are in Fes.

“A beautiful setting”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

Cafe Fes is set within a beautiful Riad garden, romantically lit at night. The food is very good, a modern take on traditional modern dishes and somewhat lighter, including excellent fish. The menu is short, around three choices for each course, and freshly cooked. Wine and beer are served. Expect to pay around £20/25 a head. The garden is a peaceful oasis in the medina and a beautiful place to eat. Recommended.

“Nice but overpriced”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

We went here with few friends during looking for a nice and getaway from busy Medina. It is nice Riad with a beautiful garden. We enjoyed food as well. However, we found the food overpriced compared to other places in Fes, while atmosphere was not as nice as we expected.

“An Oasis in the Medina”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

The recommendation to have a meal - which turned into the plural - was made by the owner of the Riad we stayed in.

It was like walking into a wonderland as we entered from the narrow street to be greeted by the guardian and escorted into the most beautiful garden imaginable. From then on everything was first class, to the welcome from the staff, and from Paul himself, to the excellent food.

My partner has dietary requirements, which were catered to without any problems, and he thoroughly enjoyed the meals we ate there.

We would highly recommend this restaurant, and will definitely be back when we return to Fez, probably next year.
