Very good food, beautiful terrasse, excellent service. Typical food, not too crowded... we especially liked the mint tea and the couscous royal.

This restaurant was located next to our accommodation so we tried it out on our first night in Fes. It seems a mom-and-pop type and with very friendly service. We loved both the lamb tajine and the chicken pastilla. Loved the rooftop!

Nice restaurant with a great view. The food is very good and served with great enthusiasm by Assala himself. Worth a visit to experience the authentic flavor of the Medina of Fes.
