While I actually stayed in a riad in the medina, I spent a lovely afternoon at the spa/hamam at Palais Faraj and stayed for a drink in the bar and dinner. It was a perfect way to relax after several hectic travel days. The meal was delicious with assorted Moroccan salads (which could have fed 4 people) and a beautiful lamb tajine. The service is what you would expect from a 5 star hotel.

I am not one to write bad reviews, but my partner and I agreed on our way out of this restaurant that it deserved one! We ended up at this restaurant almost by accident - we knew it was recommended by lonely planet and had it marked on a map, and having walked for a long time to find one of our preferred restaurants we ended up here. Firstly, although the message was not communicated on lonely planet, there is a dress code. we were dressed in our normal - touristy-day attires (trousers, scarfs and trainers) and received some horrible looks when we arrived. although we called on our way for a reservation, after the host saw us, said we didn't have a reservation and asked the manager to come out who then let us in from the side door!!!! The food was extremely mediocre and not tasty (some flavors were not even mixing together) and had nothing to do with standard moroccan food (although it was sold as such). the terrace was closed, and we had to dine inside and there was no lovely decoration whatsoever which could potentially justify the price of this restaurant. no effort at all in the interior. This was the (by far) most expensive meal in our whole trip, although we did dine in excellent restaurants - we paid around 80 euros for our meal. The restaurant offers a taxi service back to your hotel once you finish. When we arrived, the driver claimed that he wasn't paid and wouldnt let us out of the car unless we paid for the service.

Fantastic food and views at this prime spot in Fes. The mixed salad appetizer was amazing, a really great way to experience different Moroccan dishes and portion is very generous. Pastilla was excellent. Great wine list. Definitely recommended!
