This was some of the best food I've had in all of Morocco. Fanatic and worth it. Go grab a meal here.

We went for lunch to escape the heat as there are very few restaurants with AC in the medina. Food was good, although pretty overpriced. For one starter, one entre and 2 waters, total was around 400 dirhams. Wait staff was good and speak English, french and arabic. But upon leaving the hotel, literally the entire hotel was empty of...

This place one needs to come and have a sunset drink. A great view of the town and the Mt Zalagh from the bar. Then move to dinner and be delighted with local menu or a western menu. You can mix and match from both menus. I had a carpaccio and that was yummy then with local skewers. On my... More

Terrific food, wonderful views and a nice vibe. The service was very attentive, and a drink at the bar before dinner, with the views from the bar is a must.

My wife and I had dinner here for our anniversary, and the international menu was a refreshing change after several days of tajine and cous cous. The food was amazing and quite reasonable priced when compared to dinner for 2 and many of the riads. They will even send a driver to pick you up and return you to your... More

We ate there on two separate nights...one night as a group and one night as a couple. On the night with the group, they handled the fourteen of us promptly and efficiently with good food quality and great service. On the night we went as a couple it was quite special...great service, a wonderful meal featuring a seafood bastilla as... More

We had a dinner at this beautiful restaurant. The view and the riad are simply amazing. The food was really good (we had Moroccan dinner) and all the staff were very helpful. The prices were reasonable taking into consideration the place (150-180drh for a main course). All in all very nice experience!

If you want to eat somewhere that does good Moroccan food overlooking the Medina then I recommend this place for the experience. Definitely the best view for a restaurant in Fez and the only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because there are other restaurants in Fez with slightly better food and I also found this a little...

We stayed at Palais Faraj and we absolutely loved the hotel, and our special dinner at L'Amandier turned out to be an equally wonderful experience. The restaurant is on the top floor of Palais Faraj in a small, intimate dining room done tastefully and overlooking the city. While we had good tagines all over Morocco, this experience was more upscale... More
