Dar Roumana

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.

Dar Roumana is a gem of a restaurant. Beautiful and calm, with French/Moroccan food - beautifully presented, cooked to perfection, excellent vegetarian options (a welcome change from vegetable tagine), great choice of wine and splendid desserts. A lovely evening in the midst of the Fez medina. Thank you!

Le restaurant MB Fes a confie le design au celebre architecte Christophe Pillet, dont le talent est salue dans le monde entier : celui-ci a cree un univers enveloppant, mineral et graphique.Imagine comme une luxueuse terrasse interieure sur deux niveaux, le restaurant se veut vertigineux et vertical, avec des falaises de pierre naturelle grise. Ses murs et ses plafonds en miroir fume refletent, a l'infini, l'ensemble des perspectives et donnent a l'espace clair et lumineux une impression de demesure et de restaurant a ciel ouvert. Des jeux de volumes, de hauteurs et de contrastes architecturaux exceptionnels permettent d'y passer un moment inoubliable pour un dejeuner d'affaire, un diner en tete-a-tete, ou une celebration familiale.Le mobilier cree par les plus grands fabricants italiens (Harry Bertoia, Academia, Arper...) s'inspire de l'art contemporain : chaque espace a ete pense pour allier confort et modernite.Avec une capacite de 100 couverts, il s'inscrit dans la lignee de l'elegance et de l'excellence. Situe en plein centre-ville, en face de l'hotel Jnan Palace, MB Fes vous accueille aux pieds d'un immeuble contemporain aux lignes pures..

The space is absolutely beautiful. I selected the restaurant because it was listed as vegetarian friendly, but selections for vegetarians were not plentiful. My vegetarian dinner, comprised of two appetizers, was the least satisfying of our group's. However, the fish dish was outstanding as was the snail appetizer. Our biggest problem was all the smoke from the diners around us. Wish they offered a non-smoking section.

Run, don't walk, to this restaurant to taste an exquisite, mouth watering chicken pastilla. By indulging in the several delicious salads beforehand, I failed to leave enough room to finish my order. Don't make my mistake. You can always eat those salads after the pastilla.
By the way, one of the owners will pick you up at your Ryad, for it's hard to find in the dark. Lovely family-excellent food! If I return to Fez, this restaurant will be my first stop!

What a disdasppointment. We had been recommended this place. First experience was to be met at the main square by a staff member.....good
Then downhill from there. Restaurant was at least half empty. staff did not know what they were doing and the food came out hot on the outside and cold on the inside. And it is also not cheap

We were not a quiet group (7 females) but that didn't bother them. We were treated with kindness & respect,nothing was too much trouble & they helped us organise trips outside the Medina.
The whole Riad is very pretty with hanging plants from the balconies,this where you eat breakfast & dinner.Rooms are clean & some are enormous with a couple of small ones,one of my rooms had an enormous round copper bath !
Great place to stay & the staff are wonderful too !

When arriving through the daedal, narrow streets of the medina, a door opens on the magic world of this enchanted city. Salim is the wizard which makes spells and transforms your dinner in a wonderful cultural and culinary experience. The location is the best riad you can find in Fez. Everything was delicious and dishes are huge! The fresh fruit at the end is simply spectacular. Highly recommended!

Reviewed By Ian L - Manchester, United Kingdom

My wife and I ate here twice in one day, first lunch and then dinner. This had been our first trip to Africa and we had chosen Fes. The medina guide had suggested this restaurant as being suitable for both Moroccan and International cuisine and so we went for lunch, which we had outside on the terrasse, and what a fabulous meal it was. We were presented initially with olives, cheese biscuits and home made potato crisps for nibbles. We then shared a fantastic dish of mixed kebabs, succulent pieces of chunked and minced lamb flavoured with herbs and spices. For mains I had ordered the recommended veal tagine which was to die for, the veal was melt-in-the mouth tender and very tasty and cooked with the most wonderful aubergines, done three ways. I found a piece of shin bone in the bottom of the tagine, put there to add flavour to the dish, which it certainly did. My wife had tagine of cous-cous chicken, which wasn't on the menu but which was no problem for them to make. Again, a wonderful dish, tasty and succulent chicken pieces with fluffy yellow cous-cous.
Staff were friendly and attentive, view from the terrasse over Fes medina is stunning and we were so impressed with this lunch time sojourn that we booked for dinner.

Table d'Hotes Dar Bensouda

In Fez, Marrakech Riads have restored one of the finest houses of the medina to its former splendour: Dar Bensouda (17th century) Situated within a stone’s throw of the colourful market of R'Cif where you can see the people of Fez in search of the best produce for their tables, the restaurant of this elegant residence is the ideal place to discover the inimitable art of Moroccan hospitality. The menu gives preference to the traditional recipes of Fez, displaying a subtle blend of sweet and sour; the inheritance of Berber, Jewish and Arab-Andalucian influences. Moroccan cuisine, of which Fez is the crucible, is not afraid of mixing ingredients. It's roots reach far back in time so prepare yourself for a long journey through the history and territories of Moroccan cuisine.
