Palais de justice Fez Reviews
beautiful food in a gorgous location Jun 15, 2005
When thinking of my trip to Morocco several years ago; one of my favorite experiences was a trip to Fes. To top off a fabulous day of looking through ancient ruins, an old city, listening to music, and being harassed by vendors I found myself at a hill overlooking the city with vast amounts of food in front of me!
The place is built out of an old palace with a remodeled deck with a great view of the city. It has the old traditional look on the inside of the building with the fountains, tiles and all that good stuff. But I don't care about that, and was there for the food and the view!
As you can see from my photos you get a great view of the old city. In ancient times this restaurant would have been great for ancient invaders. Think about it, great food, good rest, and a view of the city you're attacking?
As great as the view is (stay for the sunset), even better is the food. I recommend the lamb tanjine with prunes, which is a traditional Moroccan dish. This place leaves in the bone suggesting a finer quality of meat. Lamb tanjine is hunks of lamb (i think in this case, lamb ribs) slowly simmered in a sauce of prunes, Moroccan raisins, dates, broth, wine (not illegal when used for cooking!),and saffron. mmmm mmmm good.
Other main courses include couse couse, and lemon chicken tanjine. Of course it comes with bread for eating (instead of using a fork).
Also your meal comes with an appetizer of like 10 salads, and all you can drink sidi ali (bottled water).
During the midday no entertainment is offered, but later in the day they have a band and dancers.
SO if your in Fes, save some money and go to the palais de fes.
