Four of us celebrated an anniversary recently at the restaurant in this gorgeous Fes riad. I would have given it 5 stars except the sevice was a little spotty. It seemed as though there was only one waiter to serve the tables in the beautiful courtyard. He did the best he could but it definitely... read more

When we landed they served me a pretty good veg tagine with couscous. My husband too liked his grilled fish. But the veg snacks were mostly oily. One funky thing - they serve avocado "mousse" with bread. Add tomatoes, onions and peppers, and you have a great guacamole. Elsewhere too in Morocco, we were served complimentary fresh tomato "salsa" with... More

I didn't care for my first meal here. Since then I have eaten at Palais Amani twice and both meals were good. The 2nd and 3rd meals, the quality of the ingredients was exellent and the food combinations are well planned.

The food (dinner) at the Palais Amani is exceptional and creative. I ate a brilliant Avocado mouse and lamb tagine but unlike any other I have had in Morocco in over 40 years of visiting the country. If you are staying in Fes and want a night out visit the Palais Amani.

We enjoyed the restaurant of Palais Amani for its original menu, utilizing fresh ingredients and original recipes. The food is very good and menu changes are in tune with the seasons. Desserts were particularly savory, and the room is beautiful, with tilework, subtle lighting, and a serenity.

There were no shortcomings to the Palais Amani. It was a marvelous hotel, from the welcome we received upon arrival to the room upgrade to the beautiful large suite, to having breakfast outdoors on the third floor to lounging on the fourth and top floor. We were upgraded to a larger suite - always a good thing -- and were... More

The Palais Amani is right in the heart of the medina and it has the feel of a palace, yet it's homely and comfortable, wrapped around a lovely green garden decorated with tiles. The hammam is also superb and can be privately booked. There's a rooftop bar with great views over the city and the staff are super friendly and... More

This restaurant in the super-luxe Palais Amani riad is very underwhelming. The menu offered a fresh take on Moroccan cuisine, but the fresh take involved the usual food with fancy presentation (read: cooked but not served in the tagine).

Although you obviously enjoyed your time with us and found the exquisitely restored palace a wonderful environment to be in we are sorry you found the menu and wine list prices perhaps not up to your expectations.
