The Dar Bensouda is very well located, with view over the Medina. Service is top class, still very friendly, the restaurant is very good which is a must because there are not many restaurants in the Medina. Comfort is great, especially if you have a room with a view on the patio (even standard is great). This Riad is a peaceful place that you long to find at the end of a busy and noisy day in the Medina

We had a great time at Dar Bensouda, the rooms were very nicely styled and with lots of space. Good beds, etc. We twice had a luxurious breakfast in the sun on the roof with great views to Fez. The best was the extremely helpful staff. Said, Ibrahim and the rest: thank you for a wonderful stay!
It is a standard room, but so pleasant for 2 persons ... sheltered by a beautiful patio.

The pride of Moroccan cuisine, pastilla is a sweet and savory flaky pastry filled with a subtle mixture of onion, pigeon (or chicken), hard-boiled eggs and almonds, and spiced with cinnamon. There are a number of modern variations containing fish, seafood or offal, but this is the classic version. It is a festive dish that is served at the beginning of special meals.
