Dar Ibn Khaldoun: Talk about dining like a King!
Set in an old house in one of Fes' many lanes...stumbled upon it whilst walking around the city... we ordered 1 main dish each but we got served an array of about 12 different dishes of salad and Moroccan specialities! wow! All delicious... this was not the only restaurant in Fes where we got this treatment... it seemed to be the norm.
Favorite Dish: Chicken Tajine - any meat of your choice cooked in an earthenware pot very slowly (Moroccan speciality) usually marinated with lemon and olivesRelated to:

Another culinary treat!
Yet another lavish meal in the old city of Fes! Sorry I forgot the name of the restaurant but you are definately bound to come across one of them... The mint tea was especially good after consuming so much food! It also helps digestion :)
One warning: After the meal be prepared for the owner to take you by the hand and show you the way to his 'brother's' carpet shop next door! Make up an excuse and RUN! Unless you really do want to buy carpets because you will be in there forever... seriously.
Favorite Dish: Pastilla - Poultry pie which is cooked in a very sweet pastry.Related to:

Eat on the street: Good food, good price
Unfortunately, I can't remember the name of the place where we ate and had incredible shish kebabs for about $3. But I would recommend trying the places like it that you see along the street in the new city. We also were taken to a great restaurant in the medina which was pretty expensive but so much food and so good. I may find it later and post it here if I do.
We ate in a wonderful and very...
We ate in a wonderful and very well hidden small restaurant inside the medina, but I could never be able to explain where it was. I suggest you just walk and ask to common people or to retailers. The menu was a very basic one, bean soup with tomato, omelette and fried potato, with squeezed orange juice. Not a traditioanl menu, not even a fashionable environment, but it was a relaxing place where a slice of everyday life could be experienced.
In the new city, there are lots of restaurants. None of the really impressed me to the point to remember, but all those we experienced were acceptable.
Favorite Dish: In my 'Casablanca' page a list of the main Moroccan dishes is included and described.
Restaurant La Cheminee: Dont miss Chicken Tarjine with Lemon
This restaurant recommended by Mohammad my guide and it was good. Price was 120 Dirham for 2 persons --- Tarjine + Moroccian salad + Bread
