Open seven days a week for breakfast and lunch, and Friday nights for dinner and banquets, Cafe Fez presents a unique atmosphere – a treasure trove of twinkling Moroccan lanterns, silver teapots and colourful woven cushions.
Featuring a traditional menu of Middle-Eastern favourites, a 100 mile wine list, frou-frou fruit sodas and a quixotic array of cocktails, this chilled out little gem is the perfect place to relax with a group or snuggle up to a beau (or belle) in one of the low-slung cushioned booths.
A dining experience is as much about theatre as it is about food: Moroccan mint tea arrives on a silver tray and a waitress pours it into an ornate tea glass three times to infuse it.
Sitting at Café Fez under the twinkling of coloured glass lanterns with steam curling luxuriously from your tea amid the shelves of spices, you are transported momentarily to Safi or Fez. The brilliant thing is that here you don’t need a plane ticket.
