REVIEW

Les Jardins de Sheherazade

The grandest riad in Fez, Palais Sheherazade boasts an expansive grand patio encased in soaring 50-foot high walls with intricately carved woodwork.  Les Jardins des Sheherazade is the 19th century palace’s premier restaurant. Tables are scattered throughout the patio and around the shimmering turquoise pool bordered by centuries old palm trees.  Despite the imposing interior, the restaurant creates pockets of intimacy and, because of the generously spaced tables, Les Jardins des Sheherazade surpassed every other restaurant we encountered in Morocco at creating a sense of privacy while dining.  It is popular destination for diplomats and various sorts of politicians, and it’s easy to see why. 

Les jardins des Sheherazade serves refined Moroccan cuisine that, along with Le Riad Monceau in Marrakech, was the best we encountered in Morocco.  Their house specialty, the couscous with quail and candied fruits, was the finest Moroccan dish we ate in all of Morocco.  The quality of the food is uniformly high and the service is assured and deft.  Les Jardins des Sheherazade should be the at the very top of the list for any gourmand visiting Fez.
