We searched for a long time to find this restaurant expecting great things given its write up. I'm sorry to say that we were terribly disappointed. The food was microwaved and the chicken was very dry. We were freezing, and despite asking for the door to be closed it was left wide open for most of the meal. We ate... More

Coming across this restaurant near the end of a mile-long winding trek through the medina in the 100+ degree heat, I must must have stumbled in looking almost as bad as I felt- the hostess immediately ushered for me to take a seat in a large, comfy chair and brought me a menu to see if I would like lunch...

It was hard to find, nothing new in Fes. We asked for the terrace and a lovely woman said it was under renovation (ok, no problem) so we sat inside. It is a nice place, not a superb decoration but ok. We asked for a chicken and prunes tagine, my husband for a pastilla and we had two mint teas.... More

After being a bit underwhelmed by the food in Marrakech, we could not be more happy to have found the culinary haven that is Najmat Souafine. In addition to having the kindest hosts/servers, the food was exceptional, down to the seventh salade marocaines that we tried. The pastilla was absolutely incredible, and the sardines (offered as both a Tagine and... More

We just came across this lovely restaurant. Which has a aquarium with a lot of fishes (not to eat). The service was rest. They adjust a meal so it was vegetarian. And even took something of the price because I wasn't eating any meat. Our son even got a little present wen he left!

Nice restaurant with good food but very slow service (as in most restaurants in Fes...), sympathic owner and a fish aquarium for the children

Our choice to have dinner at this restaurant was based on Tripadvisor's reviews. I must confess that this was the only dinner in Fez that didn't make us fully satisfied! Service - yes, friendly. But food was nothing special - small portions, nothing to remember. We had two meat mains. We were not inspired to try their dessert. Atmosphere -... More

We went to the restaurant as a result of the good reviews from Tripadvisor. When we called to book, the staff very politely offered to send someone to walk us to the restaurant as it is not very easy to find (and also offered to have someone walk us back at the end of the dinner).The clientele of the restaurant...

The portions are small but the food is quite good. We ordered the Thai chicken which was very good although not big enough to satisfy, the chicken pastille which was served with icing sugar and cinnamon, which took away from the flavour (i am not a fan of sweet and savoury combined) the chicken tagine which was served in a...

We enjoyed our meal very much!!! We eat a very good lamb and a surprising good lasagne - all cooked in a modern morrocan style, we also loved the starters! We haven't found any similar for this price in the medina. The service is very friendly and helpful, nice ambiance - we discovered this place by chance, unfortunately at our... More
