Dining options in the Fez medina are limited to the menus at hotels and riads and casual street carts, with a few overdone faux-palace options in the mix. If you’re craving something other than Moroccan, your best bet is to hit the Ville Nouvelle.

Top Restaurants in Fez

Chez Vittorio

Red and white tablecloths and drippy candles conjure a bit of Italy in Fez at this ex-pat favorite in the Ville Nouvelle. The Italian menu includes pizzas, pasta, steak, and a tasty onion soup. Wine is served – a rare occurrence in Fez.

Riad Fes

Book into this modern medina riad for a decadent escape. Ultra-luxe amenities include über-comfortable Egyptian cotton sheets and a terrace with a solarium and whirlpool. Views from the rooftop make you feel comfortably removed from, yet still a part of, the medina’s energy.
