Great food, friendly service. The lamb tagine with prunes and figs was divine. Highly recommended. Small space so I suggest making reservations.

My wife and I attended this restaurant based on the trip advisor rating, and we were not disappointed. We showed up a half hour before they opened, but they still seated us, with bread, olives, and drinks. The bread was incredible! Warm and sooo crispy!...More

It's always highly recommended to book to guarantee a spot. However, it's not required. As for the buffet, it's always available.

Family owned and operated, Chez Fatima is a place where you can discover the delicate seasonings of Moroccan cuisine. During lunch hours we serve a buffet featuring a wide variety of Moroccan salads and warm dishes. As of summer 2015, we are expanding our menu to include more Mediterranean food. This expansion includes a revamped lunch menu, buffet and the addition of Frank Bartha in the kitchen.
