“Chaotic, charismatic, colourful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

This is the pace oriented mainly on tourists, but honest and thus very succesful. Maroccan street restaurant at its best. Right on the busy street of Medina. With cats sitting under your table, and donkeys walking nearby, sometimes flies trying to land on your food - you're in the middle of life. Waiters are most likely brothers - very charismatic and fast. And it is very decent and safe local cousine: fresh, spicy, good portions and prices - very good place to have a quick bite and get familiar with local cousine. Then you may go for upscale restaurants and compare the nuances of cooking in more luxury setting)

First meal in fes, the welcome was amazing so was the service from beginning to end with a complementary soup from the chef, which was delicious. Long live the morrocan people !

“Avoid this one”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We had a terrible experience eating here, and I find it hard to imagine how anyone can give this place such positive reviews. The food is below average and we waited almost an hour for it to arrive.

In short, it's an overpriced tourist restaurant with poor food and terrible service. You can do better.

“Cute little restaurant with a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

The prices are unbelievably cheap!! The tagine with prunes, toasted almonds and beef came out still bubbling and fragrant with aromatic Moroccan spices. It was the most delicious meal I've eaten in Fez the countless times I've been here. The three expert women who run this little hole-in-the-wall go out of their way to source the freshest produce (like ducking out to the bakery to get us fresh bread while we waited!). Their hospitality and incomparable food make this a place I will keep returning to.
