Excellent food in a wonderfully atmospheric environment. The experience of getting here somehow adds to the mystique, as it is tucked away in the medina with just a small plaque on the outside, almost like a speak-easy - we'd never have found it if our hotel doorman had not taken us. Turns out they also have rooms, one of which... More

Is it the romance of the location or the food that makes dinner at Dar Roumana so special. The answer is both. The food was sensational - a modern take on beautiful Moroccan food. Our entire meal was absolutely delicious but the rabbit main really stood out. We were also lucky enough to be there on a Monday night when... More

We were staying at this riad and knew that it's reputation for food was very good. It was very fine food indeed. Although the head chef was away at the time the meal we had was world class. We choose rabbit and it was fantastic Wonderfully presented and well served Fine wine too. If you want fine dining in the... More

We stayed in Fes during our honeymoon, and we had dinner at Dar Roumana our final night in Fes. We were also staying there and had seen people having dinner there at night for a number of nights, and we knew it was going to be spectacular based on what we'd seen. The ambiance is fabulous, the staff is wonderful,... More

We had a fillet of fish that was so fresh, was matched so perfectly with its accompanying flavours that we have not been able to get it out of our heads in the weeks since. Pudding was just as good: mango with mint, yoghurt and peeled ginger. Fresh and delicious in equal measure. This is very high quality food (and... More

The chef has learned his trade in France and it shows in his inventive cooking (I've eaten everywhere, but smoked eel fritters with a beetroot puree was new to me) The menu is basically French, but there's a touch of Morocco in some of the flavours, particularly in the entrees We went there twice : my wife had fish each...

When we stayed at the Dar Roumana we were the only ones in the building the night we had dinner, so the chef essentially was cooking just for us. Despite this, the entire diverse menu was available, and we ended up enjoying a lovely and romantic meal. In short, tremendous menu, wide range of drinks, excellent service, beautiful setting.

Original menu full of taste. The view from the terrace is also amazing, I totally recommend it for a dinner in Fes.

Had a nice evening here with two couples. Has the ambiance of a beautiful Fassi Riad but without the traditional Moroccan fare. All the food is gourmet quality and everyone in our group was very pleased with their orders. If you have had your fill of tajine, this is a must on your visit to Fes. Prices were 275 dirhams...

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.
