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.

We were not staying at the Bar that the restaurant was located in but had a wonderful meal there on our last night in Fes. The menu was very appealing, especially to my husband. However, I am a closet vegetarian and asked the server if the kitchen would be willing to prepare me a vegetable plate for an entree. Chef... More

Although staying at Dar Roumana, we ate here after 2 days of exploring other restaurants. That gave us a good benchmark. This was our best meal in the city. Food was very good, tasty and perfectly presented by Chef Vincent. Paired with a good bottle of wine recommended by Vanessa.

We started off with some robust cocktails that got us into a very good mood early on in what is a very attractive setting. Unfortunately, despite being first into the restaurant, all the tables then appeared to have been taken. We were set up for dinner where we had our cocktails, near the fire. Whilst this was a charming and... More

We stayed here, and I can't tell you how lovely it was to step from our room to dinner and back, after climbing in the medina all day long. Husband had octopus appetizer and declared it the best he'd ever had. I had the fava/artichoke appetizer and the cheese souffle, both delicious. The firs night, we both had veal chops,... More

All the meals were made with locally sustained products. We ate everything on the menu and kept going back for more. We did not want to eat anywhere else as we wanted to eat everything they had to offer. The cooking was superb and the service was always very friendly.

We were looking for some nice place to have dinner in Fes and ended up going to Dar Roumana. Food was a bit pricey but good there although we expected more after reading all the TripAdvisor reviews. For the appetizers we had salad with pumpkin and tahini source and cheese soufflé. Nothing special I might say. For the main course... More

We travelled in Morocco more than three weeks, this is definitely one of the top 3 restaurants. When they opened the door, a non-smoking sign on sight! I like it immediately. It might be the only non-smoking restaurant in whole Morocco. The courtyard where the restaurant is has really high ceiling, beautifully decorated, traditional Moroccan style. They play smooth classic... More

We ate in Dar Roumana twice, both times the food was of a high standard. It is French but with a Moroccan twist in some of the dishes. The ambience is genial, not overly fussy but calm and subtly lit by candles. I would highly recommend eating here at least once on a trip to Fes as the food is... More

A stupendous location, beautiful interior. We only met one member of staff , the waiter during our evening meal so can't comment about the overall hospitality. But shouldn't forget the local lad who came to get us from our accommodation and walked and chatted both there and on the way back through the windy streets of the Medina. The meal... More
