This is a very casual place and quit authentic. The food was extremely well prepared and the service is well above average. The place is culturally authentic - you don't have utensils, you have to eat with your fingers - but the food is appropriately prepared. We plan on returning soon.

Absolutely wonderful!!! I loved it. We had a wonderful cultural experience. They lead you through all and the meat all falls off the bone. Will definitely be going back.

For our grandson for his 20th birthday we took him to this restaurant for dinner. The restaurant has very low lighting and there are low tables and cushions seating close to the floor and the confines of the restaurant has this Moroccan atmosphere which was pretty cool. The belly dancer was amazing and we enjoyed the show. My grandson had... More

Fantastic service and the atmosphere is amazing. This is a five course dinning experience come hungry. Everything was great, except the main course it was a bit over cooked...that said it was still flavorful and not enough to withhold recommending Mataram Fez.

I just got back from taking my 35 year old son to Mataam Fez. The first time I was there was 34 years ago. I have been back since. The food is very tasty, and the qualtiy is good. I do wish they still made the original bread from years ago, and the orginal thicker soup. More than just a... More

Mataam Fez is truly a unique dining experience. Last week was my 5th visit since the early 80's but it won't be the last. I was a bit nervous about my grandkids' reaction but they loved every minute of it - the food, the atmosphere, the tea pouring and the belly-dancing. If you can't travel to Morocco, go to Mataam...

The food was great, the service was outstanding, and the belly dancer was sexy. What more could you ask for? You sit on cushions on the floor and eat with your hands. No silverware, but they wash your hands with lemon water at the table and give you a towel that you keep over your shoulder to wipe your hands.... More

This is a very long-standing Denver icon. We went there for a birthday dinner recently and had a great time. The food is always reliable and very authentic Moroccan. And, the belly dancing is an extra treat. The night we were there a little girl from the audience came in her costume and joined the dancer. What fun!

Quite a unique experience. You sit on pillows, order an entrée and are presented with a 5 course meal. You are given a towel as a napkin and twice during the service you are presented with a vessel to hold your hands over as a server pours warm water over them to clean them. For good reason. Everything is eaten... More
