Yes, the Fez Lounge looks hip, the sort of restaurant you might pop into in a smart part of London or Paris. This is the triumph of restaurant's marketing department. It's a pity the kitchen department didn't play along. I ate in this restaurant the last day of June and was the only customer. I chose a chicken tajine, which was sizzling hot, but uncooked. The meat was as tough as a soldier's boots. The idea surely behind a tajine is to cook meat slowly over a couple of hours until it is really tender and tasty, not shove it in a pressure cooker or microwave for a few minutes?

This is a good place to get salads and a break from the many tagine and meat dishes. I tried the friend cheese "spring rolls", a goat cheese and fresh tomato salad and the tabbouleh. More importantly though, the people here were very kind and went out of their way for me. Highly recommend it. It was pretty expensive for Fez, but the ingredients were fresh and delicious.

My son and I looked for a place that served smaller dishes than the usual tajines etc. and came across this small place that advertised tapas. It was not exactly Spanish tapas, what would a tapas place be without Jamon Iberico! However, the food was rather good and the portions were tapas size. I can see that some reviewers consider this an expensive place because a full tapas meal would add up quickly. We had the Pastilla (very good, unusual combination of flavours), the Meat Briouat (small portions, similar to Vietnamese spring rolls), the Goat Feta Salad (very fresh, wonderful flavour, could have had more olives and olive oil) and the Sliced Orange with Cinnamon and Mint for desert. With Espresso and two beers, the bill came to about 320 Dirham. Not cheap, by souk standards, but if one looks for something that is a bit different from the average couscous or tajines, it is a place worth giving a try. The owners are friendly and speak English.

While visiting Fez with my family, we stopped for lunch at Fez Lounge. We ordered the daily tagine, moroccan salads, and the burger, with citronade for drink. All was tasty, especially the aubergine salad and the tagine which was very flavourful.

I came in Fez Lounge by chance, not knowing much about the place. It is a nice alternative to the traditional riads of the medina. I ordered chicken pastilla which was exquisite. The milk shake was rather chocolate milk. The music played in the Lounge was very pleasant and so was the service. Clean bathrooms, fair prices, good coincidence.
