We had an exquisite dinner at Riad Fez. The pastilla and desserts were heavenly. We were equally impressed by the calibre of fine cuisine as we were by the professional service and the gorgeous interior.

Our dinners here were among our favorite meals in Morocco. The menu was varied, the food delicious, the service excellent, and the setting (we were the only ones in the small dining room at the end of the pool both nights) perfect. It is expensive but we thought it was worth the price.

This is as close to perfection as it gets. Beautiful restaurant in our Riad Fes where we decided to stay in on a rainy first night. How happy we are that we did. Drinks with friendly bartender Abdul in the open air bar, proceeded to the inviting restaurant and were greeted warmly, tangine lamb worthy of a place on our... More

We went to this restaurant, part of the Riad Fez Hotel in Fez. We had baked stuff vegetable for the first course. There were seasoned rice stuffed carrot, zucchini, egg plant and tomato. They were delicious. We had Roast lamb for entry, very well seasoned and cooked so tender that my knife was never used. Dessert included fresh orange and... More

This is our second visit to Riad Fes, and although the place has grown from a small riad at our last visit to a massive compound, the hotel and the restaurant have lost none of their appeal in the intervening years. Accidentally stumbled into this place on Christmas eve -- and what a scene, with Berber percussion resonating through the... More

We had dinner here in November 2014. The tables were oddly arranged in a very modern part of the Riad. You could have been anywhere in the world. We don't mind paying if the food and atmosphere are memorable but this Riad was just OK the night we went. The rest of the building looked incredible but we didn't get... More

We had morning breakfast in modern area. Fine for AM but totally lagging in atmosphere for evening. We had our dinner in a small area overlooking water are and bar. This area was far more appealing. Everyone liked their meal. Not great but good. Hotelier or owner needs to work on atmosphere. Contemporary is good...not in Fes

We had dinner here, which was quite good. The atmosphere is wonderful, the Riad is very nicely decorated. Quite modern, not really Moroccan. We paid 1520 Dirham (not including tip) which we thought was quite expensive for what we had.
