Excellent !

We choose the salads and birouates. Then chicken tajine and veal tajine. It was simply perfect. It is expensive but in my opinion it worth the price. But don't expect a local experience : only tourists in such a place.

We found the staff well trained and friendly and the views are superb. We stayed at the hotel so we ate here a few times over ten days, including a very special birthday dinner. We ate from both the Moroccan menu and the International menu, which has a flavour of Morocco anyway. My husband eats meat and I eat fish... More

The restaurant is at the highest level but for example nobody come to us to takes care of your coat (unnecessary option for us in general but not for a restaurant that claims to be the best of Fes). We took a typical Moroccan soup (Harring) and a velvety vegetable, decent but nothing specia. What really surprised me was ordered... More

They had excellent food on both international and Moroccan menus. The combination of choices was high and the food was outstanding.

OK I read the other reviews (I'm a huge fan of Tripadvisor) and decided to try it myself. I'd been to the bar at the Palais Faraj several times for tea or cocktails (and the Internet). Nice views - I think Fes is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. From the start I was impressed. Excellent service... More

Our Riad recommended this restaurant and we decided to spend our final evening in Fes here. Briliant decision! Everything was great including the subtle, live music. Delicious food (we loved the salads), lovely wine and the dessert was amazing - very thin pastry layers, almonds, strawberries and ice cream. And we don't usually eat dessert. Special mention to Tarik our... More

I went for dinner with a friend at L’Amandier, expecting a unique experience of Fassi cuisine served in style. We sat at a table with a lovely view over the Medina… but quite uncomfortable ‘designer’ armchairs. We were handed the menu. Then a cheesy waiter came to our table every minute at least half a dozen times to check if... More

The view is the highlight, the rest was uninspired and disappointing. The food was bland, the service poor and overpriced. Would not recommend.
