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.

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Our first dinner in Fes was at Dar Roumana. What a wonderful experience. Excellent food enjoyed in superb surroundings. We enjoyed the Roast Bream & vegetables, goats cheese soufflé, poached pear & raspberry. Good Moroccan wine from the Meknes area.

“Fabulous food in Fez!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

Dar Roumana has a small intimate restaurant set in a stunning courtyard surrounded by fabulous Morrocan architecture. It is a picture perfect setting. The food cooked by Vincent was wonderful, using fresh ingredients he buys from the market everyday. I had the salmon which was cooked to perfection. The service is fantastic and Mohammed is very helpful. If you want to dine in style at a reasonable price then visit Dar Roumana - you won't be disappointed. You will need to book as they were full for the 3 nights that we stayed.

“Finest Dining in Fes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

Moroccan food is fabulous, but when you want a break from tagines and couscous for a night, the best place to dine in Fes is the restaurant at Dar Roumana. Set in the stunningly-beautiful inside courtyard of the Riad, the restaurant is both intimate and elegant. The food is French, with Moroccan flavors, and the menu is creative and the food beautifully presented. The restaurant also offers a nice wine selection, and solo travelers are given the option of being seated with other guests of the road -which is a friendly option. One could easily dine here several nights running, as the choices are varied and the venue so incredibly charming.

“Stunning food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

It does not get much better than this! Eating beautiful food in beautiful surroundings with excellent service was a great start to our holiday. We also ate in the riad again later that week but this time a meal cooked by the housekeeper. Both meals stunning but very different. I echo previous reviewers ecstacy over the creme brulee!

“Excellent food in beautiful surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

We ate twice in Dar Roumana, once a dinner that was sort of a mixture of Morrocan and Mediterranean cooking and another time a traditional Morrocan dinner (it is served on Mondays). We enjoyed both of them immensely, also for the reason that the small restaurant is located in a beautiful central yard of a riad. If you care for Morrocan wine with your dinner, that's also available.
