We had a fantastic experience dining at the Riad Rcif. First, it is obviously the place that is stunning : the Riad is truly gathering the best Moroccan craftsmanship can give, and we stay a long time admiring the different places and the great view of the medina.

The food was really excellent, all the menu beginning with 7 plates Moroccan salad. Then tajin and couscous cooked by Fatima, very tasty. The service was really nice, we had nice chat with Aicha and Adid, who took care of us.

Great experience that we recommend to all, perfect for a romantic time or a great meal in family.

Call them before to book and so that somebody can get you at one's medina door (located in the Medina, better to follow somebody to reach the place !)

Great food + friendly and funny staff = Best time

The location is not ideal, you will need someone to get you there

I wish my mum cooked like this !!! You will be amazed by the taste and delighted by the presentation. They don't skimp so be warned it is a 3 course experience.
First course is a selection of different vegetable dishes. This is classed as a salad, and is a true delight. My favourite was the green beans and potatoes..... In saying this the rest of the dishes were astounding.
Second course is the main Meal. In my case the couscous with chicken and vegetables was off the chart. Or for something a little different try the Berber traditional meal with lamb.
Finally the evening meal is finished of with a selection of seasonal fruits, and a fruit cocktail with rosé water. Don't be mislead this is not what you think. It is a combination of fine well balanced flavours which will refresh the taste buds while adding the desert aspect to the meal.
The Riad Rcif is a 5 star dinning experience. From the service to the atmosphere to the food, it is a place that let's you experience traditional Moroccan cuisine, in a traditional Moroccan setting. A must for any food lover, or romantic at heart.

The group that I was traveling with spent a fabulous evening on the Terrace at Riad Rcif. On a beautiful, balmy Moroccan night we watched the sun set over the Medina - the terrace is perfectly positioned above the rooftops, and the pinks and mauves of the sunset against the medieval city provided an amazing backdrop for our evening. At this time we were the only ones on the terrace, so mingled whilst enjoying the Moroccan wine (the rose is particularly perfect for the climate !). As more diners arrived we were seated and the culinary delights started arriving... each table laden with moroccan specialties - freshly prepared platters of vegetables, rice , bread, and delicious chicken and vegetable tagine on cous cous. And Mama Fatima's specialty chicken pastillas. A spectacular experience, enhanced by the amazing call to prayer ringing through the rooftops. We were welcomed and looked after by the warm and vivacious Aisha and her colleagues. The wine flowed, the food was fabulous, and laughter and a great evening were enjoyed by all. This is a beautifully restored riad, with spectacular Moroccan detail wherever you look, that coupled with the delicious, freshly prepared dishes, provides an unforgettably fabulous Fez experience.
