Description: Chefs-in-residence harry cummins and laura vidal from round-the-world tour PARIS POP- UP from november 15 to end- january. Restaurant n°7 is a chef in residence concept created by owner/designer stephen di renza, food writer tara stevens and chez panisse chef jerome waag where renown chefs have to use local produce either sourced from within the medina or from nearby farms. Ingredients-wise very much local and moroccan, however what dishes become in the hands of these chefs is likely to be quite different to what we understand as moroccan. Open for dinner only. Reservations appreciated. Closed monday and tuesdays.

“Paris meets Fez”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

This restaurant is absolutely superb. We (a group of 5 friends) all enjoyed our evening there very much. The food was really delicious – and so fresh! French dishes but with a Moroccan twist. The desserts in particular were out of this world. I also loved the way the owners (Stephen and Bruno) have decorated it, Moroccan but modern - mostly black and white. Stephen and Bruno also own Riad Numero 9 which is just around the corner.

“A welcome retreat from the craziness of Fes.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

Great coffee (and I'm not a Starbucks fan so I only like real coffee) it is worth a trip here just for the coffee.

We ordered croque monsieur which was lovely and came with a delicious pea salad and a morrocan soup.

The decor is a striking black and white concoction with a water feature to the side. It works very well.

The staff bend over backwards to help you and although they don't speak great English they definitely speak enough to get by and an impressive amount for a third language (after Arabic and French).

Should be on the to do list whilst in Fes.

“Hidden, but well worth discovering”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

If Numero 7 were a bar, it might be up there with some of the coolest in the world. The monochromatic interior gives you the impression you have quite literally walked straight into the 1920s whilst the jazz soundtrack and the location in the Medina only reinforce the notion that you've stepped back at least a few centuries. Of course, most important is the food, and it did not disappoint. We had a Moroccan salad to start followed with salmon for the main course and did not feel in slightest as though the meal was overshadowed by our surroundings. The chef, Bruno, comes straight out of Parisien culinary scene and there is definitely a taste of the city in each dish, however the does not detract from the distinctive Moroccan flavour imbued in everything we tried. A fantastic restaurant for a beautiful night out in Fes.

“This Place Is a Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

My husband and I were enjoying an idyllic vacation at Riad9 in Fes, Morocco when we decided to try the new adjoining restaurant, Restaurant Numero 7. Recently opened by the riad’s owners, Stephen di Renza and Bruno Ussel, Mr. Ussel is the Chef with an impressive culinary pedigree from years working in Paris.

The restaurant’s beautifully designed black and white interior is full of surprises. A waterfall makes peaceful background sounds, My husband had the lemon veal chops which were tender and succulent. I had pink atlas trout which was very fresh and extremely well-prepared. For dessert we shared a dark chocolate and orange tart which was memorable. If you’re in this part of the world, do not miss this gem.

“Fantastic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

An incredibly stylish restaurant in the heart of Fez Medina, where Moroccan tradition meets new and blends perfectly. Everything is black or white. Incredibly, the cutlery is solid silver - so stylish!

The food was wonderful. I had a delightful pea salad with artichoke.
