“A lovely spot for dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

This was a lovely place to have dinner. We were staying at a nearby Riad & wanted somewhere close by for dinner. While the location could have been a little hard to find by ourselves, the staff from the Riad were more than happy to meet us near the Gate Ricf & walk us to the location. The food was very nice, there was a decent selection of wine & the view of the Medina was wonderful.

“A must go dining experience while in Fes.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

We were welcomed like Family into this Palace and the quality of dining is well worth it. This is home cooked food and the Chef must be one of the best in Morocco. You must visit the rooftop and sit under the full moon during the call to Prayer, you will be lifted. Hassan escorted us back out if the Medina with a skip in his walk and a smile on his face. Hospitality is top class at Riad Rcif. Marg & Val.

“A must if your visit is for a few days”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

Lovely interior, attentive staff, enjoyable food........but you must pre-book so that you ensure you are met by a runner, as otherwise you have no chance of finding it.

“Authentic Moroccan Feast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013 via mobile

Such a feast for the price, a new found love for Moroccan food and a real education in regards to quality and flavor.
Will be attempting many a beef tagine myself to chase the experience I had here at Riad Rcif.

“Fantastic hostess, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

We went to the Riad Rcif based in the reviews on trip advisor and were not disappointed. We organised to be met at Rcif (near Cinema Amal) as it can be tricky to find and they walked us to the Riad.
We were greeted by the hostess who was extremely welcoming and friendly. After choosing our meal we were helped through the wine list and given some useful information on the different types and qualities of Moroccan wines. The Moroccan salad starter was good although quite extensive (you will probably need to pace yourself and save room for your main course) and the tagines were very good. For desert we had some very nice banana fritters which was served together with fruit. However, the real highlight of the meal was the hostess who chatted with each of the tables throughout the evening and held good meaningful conversations. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.
