“Good, but not great.”
Reviewed 7 February 2014

A nice setting, good service, really good pita bread appetizers. The roast chicken was tasty, but a bit dry, and the french fries mediocre. The best dish of all was the ravioli, excellent!

“Shocking is putting it mildy!”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

Our trip in Africa so far has been unbelievable and I have posted lots of wonderful reviews to date but sadly his is not the ADR with fez. Our dining experience was a disaster. The food was bland as can be and not as advertised. We were expecting Moroccan but got a mottled mix of Japanese/Italian/Thai. There were four of us dining and all had equally disappointing meals. The table next to us all ordered sushi and were told 15mins after they had ordered that they all had to chose something else from the menu as there was no way the kitchen could manage!?
The owner was rude and not at all interested in our polite complaints.
The most authentic thing about Fez were the fez hats worn by the wait staff. Owners need to pick up their game in a major way!!

“A little bit of Morocco”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

We had a very surprising evening at this small but unique restaurant in White River. We had a very good meal and the staff and management were very helpful and friendly.

Can only really saythat we were somewhat disappointed after all the hype generated about Fez. Service was friendly and the restaurant atmosphere was very pleasant. The kids tucked into sushi platters which went down really well, didn't leave me a taster, so can only assume it was good.

For starters tried the snail spring rolls with chili jam. An interesting twist, and while not exceptional was quite tasty with the chili jam probably taking top honours. We also had a crab and avo salad which was tasty.

For mains we targetted the moroccan inspired items, a baby chicken with moroccan rub and the lamb and couscous dish. The lamb was exceptionally tender. I was expecting more moroccan inspired spices, however it tasted more like a lamb tomato bredie and was extremely salty. The chicken was quite average.

For desserts we tried the baklava, which was excellent and probably the highlight of the meal. The other dessert was the cashew nut pie which was again very disappointing being to dry and overall quite tasteless.
