“Very Good experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Bouayad is about the 3rd restaurant on the right after entering the blue gate, right next door to Hotel Cascade. They are open on Fridays. (Holy day). The service here is with a smile and they speak english and have an english menu. We had the vegetable soup this was excellent; a pumpkin soup with just the right amount of herbs, this came with fresh bread. Before the soup arrived they gave us a free plate of dahl which was delicious. My partner had the omelet which was very good and simple, these two dishes were perfect for someone getting over short term illness. I had the roast chicken this came with fries, rice and a little salad it was very good also and the chicken was well cooked so no fear of sickness. I also had the cream caramel for dessert with fresh banana on top this was very tasty. They serve fresh OJ. They have the option of just one dish for around 40 - 50 drm or a 3 course meal for 70 drm, value for money is excellent. Overall the food and service was faultless and we will return tonight to try the Moroccan soup and chicken, vegetables with couscous.

“Definitely would recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

We went to this restaurant (which is just a few shops down from the Blue Gate on the right in the Medina, so very easy to find) as they weren't very pushy, and we were getting fed up people grabbing us and shouting at us.

We're so glad we did. This was the best meal we had in Morocco. Tagines tend to be range from the bland to the flavoursome, and this was the best. We paid 50 Dirhams (they thought we were students so offered it for this rather than the standard 70, but it was so good we gave a 20 tip!) for a set menu for 3 courses, and they were all lovely. The soup was really nice, and the cinnamon oranges were different and lovely too. They even finished it off by giving us free mint tea!

Service was great, restaurant was clean and nice to look at, and it was generally ace. If this restaurant was in my home town, I'd go all the time.

Nice tasty food and good portions.
Good friendly service and quite cheap.

“Really good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

My first night in Fes the owner of the riad suggested this place for a simple light meal. The Moroccan salad course was flavorful and generous, and the tagine was yummy--all for the price I would have expected for the tagine alone.
