Riad Fes consists of five old houses joined together. The central hall is a magnificent chamber in the local style. However when you pass to the restaurant the setting becomes anonymous and modern. There are not even local objets d'art to relieve the bland decor. Despite the Relais et Chateaux cachet, there was mechanical disco music pumping through the restaurant throughout our meal. The fixed price menu at 45 euros costs almost twice what is charged in other excellent Riad restaurants nearby. But the food is not twice as good and the setting is dreary. The appetizers are delicious - an array of subtle salads, making good use of local spices and vegetables. The main courses, however, consist of unadorned hunks of lamb or beef without originality or special flavor. The deserts are dull. It is as if the restaurant and the cuisine were designed by a committee which could not quite make up its mind what style to adopt - modern or traditional. Pity, as the Riad itself is beautiful.
