TravelPod Member ReviewsRiad Dar Tafilalet Fes
This charming 350 year old riad is located right in the wonderful Fes medina. The riad is welcoming and surprisingly quiet given its central location. The very comfortable and authentically appointed rooms look out onto a central foyer area, and on the top level are courtyards which provide splendid views of the old city of Fes. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A great place to stay and absorb the atmosphere of the old city.

... that they weren’t given enough food.
The food was very good, but between all the salads and the large portion of the entrée, I was full before I could finish. The rest of the group was in the same boat. Luckily dessert was just fruit: small fragrant tangerines, pomegranates and golden apples. The meal was around 1200 dirhams for 8 people, which is about 150 per person, or $16 USD for all three courses. It was not a bad price by US standards, but pricey for Morocco, ...
... as good as the first - lamb was good but there was hardly and meat and the eggplant dish was burned a little which with eggplant is something you can really taste. Considering though she went shopping, spent 1.5 hours preparing all of this for us and stayed to clean up I am not complaining one iota. I did some rooftop yoga underneath the moon tonight. There was a nice breeze and it felt very free to be doing it here. It was around ten pm at night. I ended with my own ...
