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 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

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

After reading a review on trip advisor I decided to venture to Dar Roumana for dinner and what an experience! I'd absolutely recommend that when booking your table you ask for the restaurant porter to come and meet you outside the medina to take you to the restaurant. It's quite dangerous to try and locate the restaurant as it's in... More

Five stars is not enough. This absolutely gorgeous Dar is also home to one of the top restaurants in Fes. It was definitely one of the best meals of my life, no exaggeration! We started with cocktails on the terrace, complete with a dramatic lightning storm in the distance. Without any rush, we headed downstairs for our meal about an... More

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...
