Description: The Fez Café is a charming Moroccan bistro set at the edge of our vast garden and topped by an immense rooftop terrace - perfect for a dinner under the stars. Under the careful guidance of Michel Biehn himself, a Provencal food connoisseur with three award-winning cook books to his name, our chef at the Fez Cafe crafts a market-fresh menu every day which draws its flavours from the Morocan tradition, the East, and the home-grown organic vegetables from our own garden. We only use fresh seasonal ingredients. Our bar and Foosball table help make it a fun Medina meeting place. Open everyday for lunch, and dinner. Michel Biehn is the author of several award-winning cookbooks published in France, Europe and the United States. For a few hours or a few days, Michel Biehn, aided by his wonderful Chef Hicham, the head chef of the FEZ CAFE, will be happy to share with their guests, their oriental recipies and secrets of Moroccan cuisine.The cooking class starts by shopping on the market with Si Mohamed, followed by the actual cooking of the selected recipies with both Michel and Hicham. Then, it will be time to enjoy the prepared meal. Price:80 € per person.

We had a nice dinner here on the recommendation of the staff at our riad. Nice meal but a little on the costly side and not the best dinner we had in Fes. My partner's fish was over cooked and the risotto was not very good. My chicken and mashed potatoes was quite tasty. Pretty but lacks warmth. The gardens... More

oasis in the heart of the medina. Lunch is a good time to go - vegetable tarts, pastas and dish of the day change every day. We had excellent fennel tart, lemon zest pasta, salad of the garden. Didn't have a bad dish and we went three times. The rose wine is good too. There are fish and tortoises in... More

The garden is like a little oasis in the medina, it's worth going just to have a stroll. The cafe is colorful, its whimsical décor is amusing and pleasing. The food was delicate and delicious. They made a special order of pasta for my kids, who were longing for a bit of familiar comfort food. The menu is simple with... More

I had lunch at the Fez Café and I simply can't believe how beautiful and serene the garden is. The owner was around and so welcoming and generous with his suggestions to discover Fes in more depth. The food was really healthy and I enjoyed the homemade quiches and tartes. You should go for lunch or dinner and they have... More

Had an enjoyable mellow meal here in October. The restaurant has a bit of a central american decor aesthetic. Service was good, they serve alcohol, food was tasty but not the best meal I had in Morocco. I'd probably recommend this as a lunch option to friends as the gardens are impressive and probably better enjoyed in the light. Still... More

We found this beautiful garden restaurant and were excited by the serene feeling created. Unfortunately the service was horrible. We were told very roughly we couldn't sit at any of the many empty tables along the front porch. No reason was giving as to why. (later I saw they were setting up for a big group but it would have...

For Fez "old hands" escaping the dark and winding streets of Fez to find a peaceful oasis of culinary calm is an art form . This garden-hotel-restaurant is nice enough. But the buzz of enjoyment is absent. The food is too clever. Prices are arrogantly high. All in all- an oasis of beautiful loneliness with average food.

So happy to have come across the restaurant, we were able to order alcohol and enjoy cool beers in the garden.
