Fez and the Middle Atlas Restaurants


Fez and the Middle Atlas Restaurant Reviews

Every Moroccan city has its own way of preparing the national dishes. Harira, the spicy bean-based soup filled with vegetables and meat, may be designated as Fassi (from Fez) or Meknessi (from Meknès) and varies slightly in texture and ingredients. Note that few medina restaurants in Fez and Meknès are licensed to serve alcohol. Proprietors generally allow oenophiles to bring their own wine, as long as they enjoy it discreetly. Larger hotels and luxury riads (renovated guesthouses and villas) have well-stocked bars that serve wine, beer, and cocktails, as do more-upscale restaurants.

Most of the Middle Atlas hotels we recommend have fair to excellent restaurants, but venture to stop at small town crossroads or souks for a homemade bowl of harira for 5H or less. Brochettes (beef or lamb kebabs) cost about US$1. Note: some Islamic villagers frown upon alcohol of any kind. Be discreet if you carry your own wine or beer.
