Dar Roumana is in a beautifully restored riad. The dining room is quite handsome, and the food lives up to the setting. There's an interesting choice of dishes and very careful service. The experience feels consistent from beginning to end.

We were craving for something different after being all tagined out! To get to the roof top for pre dinner rinks was quite a hike and felt sorry for the waiter who had to bring our drinks to the top. It was worth it though! We had the rabbit and the veal steak for main course which was delightful and... More

I had cauliflower soup with chicken liver, a lovely fish main and creme brulee, chocolate mouse and pear sorbet for dessert. I was with 10 people, everyone left happy and full. I would say the service was a bit on the slow side.

Positives: Beautiful Riad. Porter was very friendly and helpful. Negatives: Very over priced. My girlfriend had a vegan option and they still charged the same (28 euro) for two courses. I had a tiny portion for my main and then saw another guest with a much larger portion after I had eaten. The food itself was old fashioned, little Moroccan... More

Dear Backpacker_123_11, We are a rather perplexed by this review! Your girlfriend notified us when she made the reservation that she was vegan and we said we would be happy to prepare a special meal for her. We did this - shopped for and prepared an alternative three course meal especially tailored to vegan dietary requirements which due to their... More

My husband and I had dinner at Dar Roumana on April 19th. The setting, the service and the food was incredibly good. This evening was one of the highlights of our trip to Morocco. Had the wild rice and quinoa salad and the veal chop. Superb. My husband, the shrimp bisque and the trout. The orange, almond Sephardic cake was... More

We came to the restaurant on the recommendation of "1001 Restaurants You Must Experience Before You Die," an unnecessarily morbid title but nonetheless an interesting compendium of up and coming eateries. It showcases the gamut from greasy spoon hamburger joints in Madison, WI, to foam and emulsion chemistry labs in Bilbao, Spain! It's take on Dar Roumana (one of two... More

Description
An intimate dining experience in a beautiful setting, dinner at Dar Roumana's restaurant is a must-do for any visitor to Fes. Our talented French chef serves Mediterranean food with a Moroccan twist, and can be described as French/Moroccan 'fusion'. Changing daily, the dishes on the menu reflect the produce that's in season and bought fresh from the markets every day. Start with a drink on our roof terrace with spectacular views of the ancient medina of Fes, then dine in our courtyard restaurant. Decorated with colourful zellij tiling, carved cedar wood, a beautiful hand-painted bartal and intricate plaster, the restaurant is breathtakingly beautiful. In the winter, reserve a table for two next to our open fire, and in the summer be cooled by the splashing sound of the central fountain. Adding to the romantic setting is the attentive but discreet service. Allow us to transport you to a world of fine cuisine for the evening. We look forward to welcoming you to Dar Roumana. Reservations essential.
