Description: An intimate dining experience in a beautiful setting, dinner at Dar Roumana's restaurant is a must-do for any visitor to Fes. Our talented French chef serves Mediterranean food with a Moroccan twist, and can be described as French/Moroccan 'fusion'. Changing daily, the dishes on the menu reflect the produce that's in season and bought fresh from the markets every day. Start with a drink on our roof terrace with spectacular views of the ancient medina of Fes, then dine in our courtyard restaurant. Decorated with colourful zellij tiling, carved cedar wood, a beautiful hand-painted bartal and intricate plaster, the restaurant is breathtakingly beautiful. In the winter, reserve a table for two next to our open fire, and in the summer be cooled by the splashing sound of the central fountain. Adding to the romantic setting is the attentive but discreet service. Allow us to transport you to a world of fine cuisine for the evening. We look forward to welcoming you to Dar Roumana. Reservations essential.

I was very disappointed when the highly recommended restaurant, Dar Roumana had no room for us when we tried to make a reservation during our recent trip to Fes. I contacted Vanessa and "begged" her to try to fit in two more. She wrote back the loveliest response stating that indeed they would accommodate us. How lucky for us that... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the owner of a bar near The Royal Palace. She was kind enough to make the reservation for us whilst we were there. The interior is typical Morrocan very clean and smart. The food less, so but was very good none he less. A good selection of Moroccan wine is also available. The... More

We ended up eating twice at Dar Roumana. After a long stay in Morroco it was very good to have a different style of food. Delicious salads and vegetarian options. Served in a lovely setting.

If for nothing else than the gorgeous dining room and it's marvelous 1920's atmosphere. Service was a little faster than in other Fez restaurants and unobtrusive. Food needs a little help: both of our salads could have been fresher and the flavors a little cleaner.the goat cheese seemed to have been cut quite a while earlier and had formed a... More

We were staying in the Medina, but at some distance from the restaurant; we made a reservation and they sent someone to lead us there; it was a very interesting walk. The dining room in the Riad was lovely and we sat down for dinner. Reviewing the menu I found it predominantly French and ended up ordering a Veal dish... More

This was a really lovely experience. We booked ahead and so there was vegetarian options on the menu, it was just brilliant. We were picked up from our Riad and walked to the beautiful Dar Roumana. We had a fantastic meal, really tasty and top choice. What I would recommend is that you book! Great people running the place. After... More

We had a dinner at Dar Roumana during our stay in Fes. We found it absolutely delicious. The Three courses menu was perfect in term of quantity and variety. the desserts were also excellent. It's a very good quality / Price relation.

This was a wonderful experience all the way around. I proposed to my then girlfriend on the terrace, and after enjoying the views of Fez, we sat down to a lovely meal. The food is energetic, interesting and a fantastic blend of French and Moroccan. Our hosts were lovely, and the Dar itself is a piece of art. The details... More

When looking into having a nice meal for Valentines Day all the hits on Tripadvisor lead to this restaurant so we decided to trust it. It was a sour and expensive mistake. The riad itself is beautiful and one can't stop admiring it albeit the absolutely non existing lighting. It's almost borderline pitch dark in there and if I like... More

Dear Sir, As you can imagine we were surprised to receive such a negative review ten months after the fact. However, I am sorry you found the experience of dining with us so unsatisfactory. In the interests of balance, I would like to address your complaints. We did a special set menu for Valentine's Day - five courses plus a... More

On the second day of our trip in Morocco, we were headed to Fes and our driver,out of the blue, told us that we should go to Dar Roumana for dinner. This was an unsolicited referral and we agreed to try it ...at some point. When we arrived at our Riad and were settling in, the owner recommended the same... More
