The food was absolutely delicious! Our family enjoyed the buffet and was able to sample many different fresh dishes. Our favorites were the lamb, beets and baklava! The people treated us very well and made us feel welcome in their restaurant. We will be back the next time we are in Gatineau!

We had a wonderful dinner last week at La Fatima. We were welcomed by Fatima, asked if we had any questions about the menu and treated to wonderful food and great service. We ended up trying the buffet because we could not choose one thing and wanted to try many dishes and were not disappointed. Very family home environment, tasty,... More

I was never a huge fan of Moroccon food myself, but I had to try this place because of how much I'd heard of it. And I'm glad I did. The food was really tasty and genuinely felt like a home cooked meal. The chef herself was EXTREMELY nice and friendly making sure everyone was enjoying their food and had... More

We were warmly welcomed when we arrived and the menu was fully explained to us. We started our evening with a pastilla with chicken and almonds. It was exquisite and highly recommended. For main courses, 2 of us chose chicken tagine, one sweet and one savoury while the third person chose couscous. For the latter, Fatima came out of the... More

We went there a Saturday around 7:30pm. It was packed and they were understaffed. It took a bit of time to have water served and our order taken. We were not impressed. But then, Fatima came to our table, told us that had been surprised by the crowd and proceeded to take care of us (she actually did this for... More

Simple, delicious but expensive and not much variety. Limited seating and space but very welcoming and pleasant owner.

I have had both the Lamb and Chicken Tagine here. Their Tagine is very good, but not as good as the original Persian Tah-chin which uses a chicken and lamb marinated in saffron and yogurt. Also for lunch during work day, the place is a bit pricy. Regardless, food and servuce are good.

I'd you like buffets then this is the place to eat Moroccan food. The variety is good as the menu always changes but the quality has been the same which is very good! I like the fact that the service is friendly and prompt. I highly

This place is amazing. The food is lovingly prepared, the service is attentive, the atmosphere is homely... Just an all-round great experience. We went to Chez Fatima on a Sunday night and, unbeknownst to us, it was a buffet. This was great because it allowed us to taste a bit of everything... And every bit was delicious. Combine that with... More

Family owned and operated, Chez Fatima is a place where you can discover the delicate seasonings of Moroccan cuisine. During lunch hours we serve a buffet featuring a wide variety of Moroccan salads and warm dishes. As of summer 2015, we are expanding our menu to include more Mediterranean food. This expansion includes a revamped lunch menu, buffet and the addition of Frank Bartha in the kitchen.
