The restaurant is in the middle of the Medina, It is the most Moroccan which can be expected, the service was optimus and the food not that spicy and for us at least, was the best in its kind. Also the size because most of the restaurants with one plate will do fine for 2, of course we are the... More

It is a good lunch spot if you want to grab a quick lunch in the middle of the touristic center of fez. The price is ok for the location. Food is good, but not as rich flavoured as other places we have been

Bit on the pricy side (that is probably why most tour guides take their customers here), but they do serve very tasty Moroccan food. We had the kefta tajine, which tasted great and the salad contained several very distinct dishes.

Had lunch with a G Adventures tour group when visiting the medina. The menu selection we were offered consisted mainly of lamb items cooked in tagines. Most of the group commented favorably on their choice, whereas I probably should have given more thought to lamb with plumbs. The meal came with shared appetizers, bread and fruit for dessert. No alcohol.... More

As a vegetarian, it was a little hard traveling Morocco where most their meals are tagines of meat and vegetables. They had a vegetable tagine and a vegetable couscous that was a HUGE portion. Was quite possibly one of the few times I could actually say I was full and satisfied in Morocco. The staff was wonderfully pleasant and the... More

We stumbled across this restaurant on the way back from the Tannery and was pleasantly surprised. On the day we went it was mainly filled with large tables of Moroccans. The offering was limited but consistent with our experience thus far. We started with an extensive Moroccan sale consisting on warm and cold vegetables which was all we probably needed.... More

We were taken here by our guide and found it a totally average (at best) experience with very expensive prices. The only other patrons were tourists, also looking a bit dismayed they had been lead here. We understand our guide would get a nice pay back for taking us there, but given the choice - AVOID The variety of salads... More

Our official guide dropped us off here only to find a room filled with other tourists and a fixed price menu offering nothing less than 250 MAD per person (approx $30.00 USD) for what was a standard moroccan lunch, chicken tajine with moroccan salad to start, and oranges dusted with cinnamon to finish. It wasn't terrible, just way too much... More
