Where to go for lunch and dinner in Fes, Marrakech, and Essaouira

Hi,
My fiance and I are going to Morocco for two weeks in October for our honeymoon, specifically Fes, Marrakesh, and Essaouira. My fiance is a big eater and especially loves good food and wine. We like experiencing authentic cuisine when we travel, but we also like non-traditional options if the atmosphere is fun and food and drink are worthwhile. Does anyone have any suggestions for where to eat lunch while we're out and about being tourists during the day, or where to go for dinners that are fun, romantic, and memorable? I have the lonely planet guide and have been perusing reviews on tripadvisor, but I'm hoping to find some options that are a little more original.

I'd love any other advice or suggestions for activities and sights to see during our trip, too! We want to get the most out of our trip and minimize stress while we're there, so I'm trying to plan as much in advance as possible!
Thank you!!

For a real treat have lunch at La Mamounia in Marrakech. Then a stroll in the gardens. http://www.mamounia.com/en/marrakech.htm

Have dinner one night in Place Jemaa el Fna, the big open space in the medina, at one of the restaurants that set up there in the evening. Great fun. It hardly matters which one.

In Essaouira head for the port and eat fresh fish at one of the stalls outside near the boats.

I enjoyed L'Atelier Madada in the Essaouira medina. Moderately upscale, good food and surprisingly good Moroccan wine.

Try La Maison Arabe in Marrakech and the Palais Jamai in Fes.

La Mamounia brunch is 1400 dh which is about two week's salary for the typical Morocco worker.
