Although there are a lot of luxurious and expensive restaurants in the city, Fes is also home to some great cheap spots where you can savour the most authentic Moroccan dishes.
This amazing little bar and restaurant is located in the Medina and feels like an oasis among the crowded streets. The décor is bohemian and the music is appropriate, so you can enjoy your Moroccan tagines and fresh mint tea in a relaxed setting. It’s definitely an ideal place for some Instagram shots, as it has numerous straw chandeliers hanging from the ceiling and a lounge area with large pillows.
A hidden treasure of Fez, this is a peaceful little Mediterranean/Moroccan restaurant with a beautiful garden and terrace. Whether you decide to sit inside in the amazing living room or outside in the picturesque garden accompanied by the sounds of birds and a water fountain, you can enjoy healthy but delicious food in a relaxed atmosphere. Dishes range from traditional Moroccan tagine to Mediterranean salad. It gets busy, so make sure you book a table in advance.
This is a great rooftop restaurant with a friendly staff and delicious, cheap tagine. At Nagham Cafe Restaurant, you can enjoy perfect chicken tagine overlooking the old Medina. The prices are fairly decent and they offer vegetarian options on the usual meat dishes.
A riad located within the Medina, Dar Attajalli’s décor is like no other, with Moroccan tiles (zellij) and an astonishing view of the old town. Its restaurant offers vegetarian and vegan dishes, the most popular being their traditional tagine, cooked with local and organic products and served for dinner between 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. They also offer cooking classes if you’re interested in Moroccan cuisine.
“The House Of Tagine,” is another main restaurant where you can try the famous Moroccan dish at an affordable price. They offer all kinds of tagines, from vegetarian to tender beef and, of course, they’re served with bread so you can enjoy the delicious sauce in a picturesque, traditional atmosphere. Don’t forget to try their mint tea!
This restaurant, located inside the beautiful Riad Andalib, is more expensive than the other spots but definitely worth a visit, due to its splendid food. Inside you’ll find traditional Moroccan décor, rugs, sofas, plates and, most importantly, traditional Moroccan dishes. Our recommendation is the chicken tagine, served with a selection of fresh spices straight from the Medina, enjoyed in an Arabian atmosphere.
