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.

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.

In Fes for 10 days for the Sacred Music Festival, tagines and couscous get very old and it is iffy whether salads are safe, given the water contamination and poor hygiene at many restaurants. Our British friends suggested Jardin Des Biehn. It was very challenging to find, and we almost gave up, but a local Fassi workman, with a wheelbarrow... More

We went to the cafe for drinks and wanted to stay for dinner. We looked at the website and it stated they would create vegetarian options for you, yet when we arrived and asked, they did not oblige. We had a few drinks but left hungry as it was late and did not want to spend time wandering the medina... More
