Welcome break from walking he city

This small cafe / bar was a little more modern than most in the city and clearly still an experiment. Happy hour is about 5-9 and during this period was good value. Good service and a lively atmosphere even when less than half full . Welcome stopover,

We'd heard the portions were small so we weren't expecting a great deal, but SERIOUSLY, they are tinny. It all just comes across as very mean. We ordered a kofta and falafel, plus and extra portion of humus each. It came with bread (which was excellent) and salad. In the salad there was probably less than a quarter of an... More

Great felafel and hummous pita. Really tasty... Shame there isn't any other customers in the cafe... A bit soul less. Great quick lunch though.

I enjoyed Fez but I think it had as much to do with the city and overall atmosphere as it did the food. Service is a bit slow but nice. The best surprise were the hand painted canvas bags for 80S...gorgeous!

We were looking forward to something different and we decided to give this restaurant a try. We ordered the falafal and the kofta. The falafals were tasteless dry balls, the kofta was ok. The pita breads were stale... The whole dish felt like a half assed job at presenting something middle eastern. We had to order hummus separately to try... More

Went to Fez for some Falafel and enjoyed beers during happy hour. We also got some of their tacitos (filled with cheese) and guacamole. It wasn't on the menu but we saw someone else eat it and asked what is was. Cost 12 soles and was a treat! Really enjoyed our meals and the loungy atmosphere.

The menu at Cafe Fez is limited but beautifully prepared. The falafel was especially good. There's an upstairs nook for people-watching. When we were there a street musician treated us to saxaphone jazz. Service was excellent. And be sure to check out the unique restroom -- really inventive small space design.

We popped in here for a quick lunch after ourflight from Lima and were not disappointed. This is place is casual and fun. We enjoyed piping hot coffees, Mediterranean salad and Turkish with chorizo which hit the spot nicely.

We ate dinner at Fez and were overall disappointed. Service was a bit slow. Food was only so-so. The savory crepes were not very good at all. Sandwiches were OK.
