Description: Set in the ruins of a courtyard house in Old Fez. We serve Tapas at lunch, street foods, also cakes and pastries, fresh juices (eg watermelon or cucumber & mint or date and orange blossom milk) and Modern Moroccan dinners (*7 hour lamb 'Mechwi' or Pigeon B'Stella order in advance*) When it is hot there is shade and sun hats, when cold or wet there is a salon with a log fire. When wet or during high season (Christmas, Easter, May & October) reservations essential. We are situated 5 minutes from Talaa Seghira & the same distance from Batha, there are some painted signs. *No alcohol I am sorry to say* We offer an escort service to & from your accommodation within the medina, call in advance to arrange this (20 dirham) All tips and gratuities go to the staff. There are cats living in the Medina of Fez, they are stray and are pest control for the city, please do not feed them in the garden. We feed them in the street outside and make sure they have water, as do all Fez residents.

food was great and they were really goo with being flexible to accommodate food allergies. They had their staff meet us at our Riad and walk us back so we wouldn't get lost which was very nice and definitely needed if you weren't familiar with the Medina.

Amazing food, great service and absolutely stunning garden restaurant with fountains and foliage and old ruined walls. This restaurant would definitely suit those looking for a romantic meal.

The ambiance and food was beyond expectations. You felt like you were in a secret hide away. The manager sent an escort to our Riad to navigate us to the restaurant and return us to the Riad. Would go back to this restaurant!

You can't do better breaking up a busy day in Fes than by stopping for lunch at the Ruined Garden. The setting is lovely and comforting. The menu is well done and offers unique twists on many dishes as well as clear alternatives to the usual fare seen elsewhere. There will definitely be something that you will like regardless of your food tastes. Service is good and food reasonably priced. Highly recommended

we ate here twice for lunch, really loved it. Great place to chill out inside the Medina but away from the commotion of the streets outside. Highly recomended.
