“elegant, great choice in Fes”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Wonderful rooftop view of Fes in a rather modern setting. The service was very accommodating and eager to please. The food was wonderful, with mostly traditional fare, but what we thought was a fabulous, different take on the seafood bastilla -- it was the best version we had on our trip to Morocco.

“Great view, fair meal”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

I and my spouse had our dinner in the restaurant terrace, astonishing view over Fez. The restaurant is the one of a very elegant and up market hotel, very good location and easily accessible both by taxis and own car.
Meal has been fair, not astonishig, very maroccan altough expected an international cousine.
Service has to be improved in some detail being an upmarket restaurant, too "hectic" waiters with some basic behaviour still too be adopted, like when/how fo serve bread, wine, etc.....without being requested. Very positive has been the management attitude to ask for improvement suggestions and overall feedback we have been happy to provide.
A very good and romantic choice for a dinner in Fes.

“A great night in Fes!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

My husband and I were looking for a romantic restaurant and this place was just the ticket! The restaurant has a romantic and elegant feel from the second you walk in! There is fantastic view overlooking the traditional medina of Fes! The food and service were fantastic! The next time we travel through Fes this will be a for sure stop!!

Went here for a group dinner with colleagues. Bar is nice. Brilliant views, nice place, average food and service. Was expecting more to be honest.

“a magic view.”
Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

I have to agree with the last reviewer, there was nothing extraordinary about this meal, which is a shame considering it has the best view in Fez. it should be a ground breaking, hip and happening affair, rather it dishes up food like a creme caramel for dessert? in saying that, it was not bad by a long way- my husband thoroughly enjoyed his lamb shoulder which was cooked over several hours.; but if you've experienced other Moroccan food up til now, you might be disappointed.
