Places for Lunch

Luncheon, commonly abbreviated to lunch, is a midday meal.

Lunch was originally intended as a vehicle in which working classes could escape their job and purchase (and sometimes consume) alcoholic beverages, a favourite being pear cider.

Ladies whose husbands would eat at the club would be free to leave the house and have lunch with one another, though not in restaurants until the twentieth century. In the 1945 edition of Etiquette, Emily Post still referred to luncheon as "generally given by and for women, but it is not unusual, especially in summer places or in town on Saturday or Sunday, to include an equal number of men".

Fez is a virtual food festival and gourmet lovers will appreciate the large selection of restaurants to choose from. Restaurants in the médina range from fast food stands to gourmet dining rooms found in riads open to the public.

Restaurant Bouayad

Situated in the very entrance of the medina this place is comfortable and serve excellent fish tagine and fish brochette, the waiters are polite and the toilets are clean.

Restaurant Le Kasbah

Le Kasbah is hard to miss and there are waiters outside ready to pounce on any tourist who walks by. But don't let that or the fact that only tourists seem to eat here put you off. Nice roof terrace, but somehow poor service.

Cafe Clock

Very nice restaurant/café with an excellent view of Fez. It is run by an english. They offer a variety of moroccan, english and continental food for reasonable prices. It's a good place for a breakfast or an early dinner, or just having a rest and watching the hundreds of swollows which meet and fly every evening near Bab Bou Jeloud.

7 Derb El Magana, Talaa Kbira

Restaurant Thamis

Thami is a nice old guy who has a street food restaurant at a corner of the Place Bou Jeloud just before Rue Talla Seghira begins. Food is good and cheap. Tagine kefta is a must.

Fez Lounge (or F Lounge) Restaurant-Tapas

Deep in the Tala Kbira where most interesting souks and mosques are to be found, in the so called golden triangle, you will find this cozy eclectic venue mix of ultracontemporary and arab harem where you can have a light lunch with moroccan and italian inspiration: briouates filled with fish, bruschettas, excellent chocolate brownie... and end up lying on a bed smoking Shisha.
And now they propose a 2 course meal at 90 dirhams or 120 dirhams, incredibly good value for Fez.

Decorated with mosaic designs, zelliges and sculpted wood panelling, this 14th century palace is a feast for the eyes and really quite impressive. Servings are generous and the selection quite good. Alcohol sometimes is served. Afterwords you can head for a drink round the corner in Fez Lounge.
