“An experience worth the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

The menu here is limited to a three course or four course option (500/350 Dh), the former including wine. The riad is beautiful with high ceilings and elaborate carvings. The salad course was almost enough for a full meal--eight different veggie "tapas". I was surprised, though, that the bread was stale (perhaps it had been baked in the morning and sitting in the dry air all day).
The pastilla (not included in the three c.ourse option) looked large enough for a whole meal, and the tagine was quite generous as well. The dessert of the evening was filo with rosewater cream and almonds. Nice and light after all that food.

The live music was a real treat, both the oud player and the gwana duo. It's a splurge but a wonderful evening.

“Traditional cuisine in a luxury setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

This is a very good traditional Moroccan restaurant in an old Dar, the sister establishment to Riad Maison Bleue.

“Romantic, phenomenal food, serenaded by two fantastic groups of musicians”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

We ordered one meal and shared it. It was absolutely scrumptious and more than enough for us (and I was pregnant!). We were serenaded by one musician playing a stringed instrument and singing, then by a pair of what I guess were berber musicians. I thought the music was absolutely magical. A very special night in a very memorable place.

“What a magical experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

I thoroughly enjoyed my evening at La Maison Bleue in Fes. The atmosphere is magical. The service is attentive and friendly. The food is amazing. If you've been to Le Yacout in Marrakech, this is similar and every bit as good.

“Go once.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2011

Worth it to have gone once for the BEAUTIFUL riad and yes, excellent food. It doesn't pay to be picky as it is a set menu.

That said--it IS overpriced, touristed, and not worth a repeat visit.
