“Have a local take you there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

We were guided through the medina who by a guide who ended the tour at restaurant dar hatim which he called a clean, family restaurant. That was true but so is a whole lot more. This was the best meal we've had in Morocco by far! The salads were delicious and varied. I had the pastilla which was delicious and my partner had the couscous which he said was the best he had eaten. The fruit was refreshing.

The setting is beautiful with lovely carved and painted cedar ceilings, tiling and beautiful hangings on the walls.

I would never have found this place by myself and if I had I probably would have passed it by and I would have missed out. The guide said that they will arrange to pick you up and take you back to your hotel. We had the server point us in the direction we wanted to go and we found our way .

“Relaxed, delicious food, good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

The night before eating at Dar Hatim we ate at La Maison Bleu, which is a celebrated restaurant with a prix fixe menu of about $50/pp. Dar Hatim's prix fixe menu is about $25/pp and - although the restaurant styles are completely different - I thought the food was just as good. In fact, I prefered Dar Hatim's salads.
This is a great place for a relaxed, casual, and delicious meal. The owner, Karima, is about as charming a restauranteur as I've ever met. She will make sure you're happy and well fed.
Reservations are suggested. Alcohol isn't served, but you may bring your own. Karima and her husband were happy to send someone to escort us to and from the restaurant to our riad.

“This is fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

Our Riad Fes Aicha host recommended this place. A family owned restaurant. A great experience. Fantastic food (Moroccan cuisine). super friendly staff. The owner comes to the hotel to pitch you up and brings you back home in the evening.

“Our new Fes Family. Yummy.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

We traveled as a group of 10, two families, with 6 children ages 2-11. This was absolutely perfect. From the moment we were picked up at our Riad and welcomed into their home, until the moment we left; the experience and the food made for a night we won't soon forget. The Pastilla was our favorite! And to know it is the very special recipe of the family, was so heartwarming. The children enjoyed rice and cous-cous too. We recommended the Pastilla to another group that entered the restaurant and they later thanked us for the recommendation when we randomly saw them again at the airport. We would happily recommend Dar Hatim to anyone in the area and travel back there ourselves! Thank you to our new family in Fes, Morocco!

“Wonderful ambience and service, but disappointed by the food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

The meal started with the owner picking us up at our hotel and walking us into the restaurant. The wife was gracious and wonderful. The salads were delicious. However, we were very disappointed by the main courses (we got the Pastilla and the lamb). Though tender, the lamb was very bland, as it was boiled with spices to add ourselves. The chicken pastilla was also not noteworthy.
Overall, the experience in someone's home was memorable. But if you're a foodie like we are, I might suggest somewhere else in Fez for the food. For us, we would not return if we were in Fes again.
