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.

We were looking forward to a nice meal out in Dar Roumana. We saw that we had to book in advance and as we had problems with phone signals in Fez we emailed them to reserve on the morning we wanted to go hoping this would work as well as a phone call. Having been out exploring for the day... More

We could not stay at Dar Roumana, because it was booked for our dates, but we made sure to have a dinner there. We were given directions to arrive by taxi at a specific city gate, where a porter would meet us for the walk through the maze of streets to the Dar. Once inside, we were welcomed into a... More

The restaurant is the courtyiard of the house. The food was good and the service was very freindly. They have one of the best terraces in Fes

They will pick you up and drop you off with a porter on foot if you are in the medina which is great although it is never clarified if you need to pay extra for this and despite us leaving a good tip/service charge at the restaurant the porter requested his own at the end which we found a little...

It is not always easy to find gluten free meals when travelling! Our family of coeliacs hit the jackpot when we stayed and dined at Dar Roumana. We had let the owners know that we required gluten free food and it was no problem. We had an incredible 3 course meal ( with more than one gluten free choice -... More

Having read all the Trip Advisor reviews we took the plunge and booked a table. We were not disappointed - the dar is gorgeous and the food was yummy. As a previous reviewer said it is for those who are suffering from Tagine Fatigue Syndrome! It is not cheap but it was great for our last night in Morocco.

To be honest, Dar Roumana wasn't even on our shortlist before arriving in Fes. But when we asked the owner of our Dar where she would go for a special meal, Dar Roumana was on top of her list. It's not easy to find, so a staff member of our Dar brought us there. The dining area itself is a... More

During our visit to Fes we ate at Dar Roumana and had an excellent evening. First of all the food is first rate. It also offers those who are suffering from Tagine Fatigue Syndrome the opportunity to indulge in alternate choices. The setting is lovely and tables well spaced. Service is friendly and the wine list while only modest has... More

I ate a pastilla here and have to live with the disappoint that I will never eat another pastilla of the equal quality again! Very charming waiter and sublime food.

beautiful riad tucked away, a real find, best meal we had in the medina, run by a lovely couple. If you can put together a group or join one, it's well worth the effort.
