About Restaurant Dar Hatim
Located in the maze of the Fes medina, you’ll find this family home turned restaurant. Open for over a decade, Restaurant Dar Hatim serves up local Moroccan fares to perfection. Now, we’re by no means Moroccan cuisine experts, but shhhiiiit is it good!
From elaborate tiled walls and floors to beautiful Moroccan rugs, this former home brings you all those good Moroccan vibes as soon as you enter.
Upon arrival, you feel welcomed by the impeccable service. The owners, Fouad and his wife Karima, welcome you with big smiles and warm greetings, they will also be taking care of you throughout the entire meal!
As soon as you sit down, Karima lays down menus and brings you a welcome drink of mint tea. The menu has a handful of dishes and then a special or two.
Karima takes pride in her establishment and even more pride in her dishes. She’ll tell you how the specials are made from a family recipe and that it would be a mistake not to get it. Trust us on this, get the special!
After you order, the eating begins. First, bread and a display or salads (various tasty sides like carrots, lentils, beets and more!). Next, your meal you ordered and finally, desert and more mint tea!

What To Eat At Restaurant Dar Hatim
From veggie couscous to turkey skewers, you’ll find a short menu of tasty Moroccan food to choose from. In our opinion, you honestly can’t go wrong. The food is amazing.
However, if you want to be blown away, get the special Lamb Tajine (if you don’t get this, you fail) and the Pastilla. Your taste buds will forever thank you.
Meals range anywhere from 130 DH – 200 DH ($13 to $22). Not super budget friendly but the amount of food you get, the service and overall experience is soooooo worth it.
