Very reasonably priced for what you get. True silver service. Great if you want a break from the usual Moroccan fare available down in the Medina. They were very happy to accommodate us even though we were not staying there - Check on availability of hotel transport when booking. If there are 2-3 diners, ask for a window table overlooking...

Been here for dinner. This restaurant is really good, offers both typically Moroccan dishes together with mediterranean cuisine (mostly Italian). The view on the Medina and surroundings of Fes is just wonderful. Warmly recommend the place.

This was the exception for us who rarely eat in the hotel where we stay. The combination of the fine food , great service and stunning view made it our first choice and the best option we found in Fes for fine dining. We tried and loved others but none came close to the overall experience offered by Said and... More

We were staying at this hotel/riad/palace and decided to have dinner our first night. We ordered the couscous with vegetables, brouchette (which are similar to kabobs), chicken tagine, 1/2 bottle of wine and a dessert for a total of $80. Each item was absolutely delicious. The couscous was so flavorful and the vegetables were perfect. The chicken and brouchettes were... More

This is NOT Fes dining - thank God - its fantastic! If you visit Fes, you have to visit Fes - it is quite an experience and should not be missed. But frankly its a pretty dirty city and I had a hard time eating, even in the best/cleanest restaurants inside Fes. We stayed at the Palais Faraj and normally... More
